4.0 out of 5 stars Many twists and turns
A good read and none that posed many questions of morality in the human race, left me questioning some of by base philosophies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Creationism meets the patent office
The story has an intersting premise. Two young engineers generate nonsensical patents for a bit of cash and forget about them.
A few years later, the circumstances of bot engineers have changed and the patents assume much larger significance when the US government and big oil get involved.

The story has an intersting premise. Two young engineers generate nonsensical patents for a bit of cash and forget about them.
A few years later, the circumstances of bot engineers have changed and the patents assume much larger significance when the US government and big oil get involved.
The story uses a vaguely plausible set of ideas and circumstances to make a telling commentary on the state of US politics in regards to energy/defence policy, the stresses between the scientific "community" and the devoutly religious, the nature of consciousness and the soul.
However, I thought the story ran out of steam, as it must do if it were not to degenrate into pure fantasy, with an unsettling and unsatisfying ending.

A well written and interesting book. As a fan of Emmy Noether (one of, possibly the best, mathematician of the 20th century) I found it especially so. Presumably , as an American, the author portrays bible belt attitudes and patent procedures accurately. Also the character of Katarina, gives some taste of the brilliance of mind required to be active in modern physics.

Don't worry about this physics stuff . The hero is a likeable character trying to rebuild his life ,clear his debts, and be reunited with his son, while finding love in the process.

Nonsensical ramblings going nowhere. False insights and depressive pointless endings.

Interesting book. Way outside my usual genre but very good read. Not sure I would recommend it but if you like Sci fi you might enjoy this.
