Having read other John Gribbin books I looked forward to this one and was not disappointed. As the synopsis itself says most of the stuff sounds like science fiction and so the fact that it is actually plausable makes the novel all the more absorbing.
I read the book when I was just starting my A-level physics course and I have to admit that there were a small number of times where I got slightly lost off. However the main ideas were thoroughly readable and in fact now nearing the end of my phsics course I can understand a lot more of what Gribbin said.
So if you have and A-Level in physics you'll find this book thoroughly enjoyable. If you don't you'll still be engrossed and it is still possible to understand 90% of the theories that he's describing.
I'd recommened it to anyone who wants to spend the next six months convincing people they are going to the other side of the galaxy for their holidays!
