This is a story about choices we make and the consequences of those choices. It is a story that makes us wonder whether we would ever go back and choose the other path. Quantum Physicist Jason Dessen had that choice made for him fifteen years after he decided to marry his pregnant girlfriend and become a college professor instead of becoming a celebrated genius in his field.
He is kidnapped and wakes up in a world he does not recognize. His wife is not his wife, his son is not his son, he is no longer a professor, and he is seemingly a hero to those in his new environs. It seems that his quantum many-worlds theory has become a reality in this new world in which he has awakened, and his efforts to return to the world he knows are being stymied at every turn.
Jason is brilliant and discovers how to navigate this "multiverse" and enter different realities while searching for the world he left. I found the scientific part of this book fascinating even though it was difficult to comprehend at times, but the story was strong enough to carry the reader through any scientific road blocks. I believe this book, while definitely SciFi can cross over to capture many thriller fans who ordinarily pass over this genre.
