This was a serendipitous discovery for me and I found myself enjoying it very much - but I was also intrigued by the central premise. I've always enjoyed those television programmes about physics and the possibilities of parallel universes, and that's - essentially - the framework on which this engaging book is constructed. My only quibble was that I wanted more. The author has set up a really intriguing premise with a very well drawn central character, (excellent dialogue too) and I think she could take this further. All too often, it's the other way round - people trying to expand a short story idea into a novel, but in this case, I felt as though I'd very much like to see a longer piece of fiction from this writer, building on what she has set up here. Very well worth downloading! I liked this a lot.

This novella can only be described as excellent, and 'page-turner' is an understatement (much as I loathe the usual cliches). The story unfolds with interesting pre-amble at a normal pace then quickly takes off like an Olympic runner at the sound of the starter pistol.

It builds on the foundation that Lizzie Greene is an ordinary young woman, in a good profession, happily married and delightfully close to her husband, and they are expecting their first child - a nice rosy life without the mush.

Then tragedy strikes, but nothing's as cut and dried as it seems. On a typically ordinary day, Lizzie receives a phone call from her husband on his way home from work, just letting her know when he'll be home. What she doesn't know, until police officers turn up at her door, is that he'd been killed an hour before. We, the readers, know she got the call, but no one else believes her. And the slippery slope for her takes her down a helter-skelter of raw grief and mixed emotions, with her mental health firmly brought into question.

(Think along similar lines to the movie 'Premonition' starring Sandra Bullock).

The story then takes us through the twists and turns of extraodinary thought-processes about this life and a possible paralel life as Lizzie tries to maintain her sanity as family and friends despair, and outside authorities try to tear apart her theories. She develops a faith she never had before, convinced she's not going crazy, as she remains rational enough to question everything. The trouble is, no one will listen to her logic. And so we're swept along by the author's imagination and excellent prose in a story that will keep you guessing even up until the most unlikely and unexpected conclusion. I absolutely loved it!

I just finished reading Schrodinger’s Telephone and what a wonderful read it was. Even a cynical old man like me with no discernible faith in anything found it moving, heart-breaking, challenging and uplifting in equal measures. Stein brilliantly hangs the whole narrative off one seemingly impossible event which makes what might otherwise have been a very tough and bleak story into something altogether more intriguing and thought-provoking. I would highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in love, faith or what it means to be human!

Lizzie's world crashes when her husband is killed on his way home from work. Or was he? A call home placed him in another area an hour after his own murder and she struggles to understand what really happened.

A beautifully-written novella, Ms Stein has captured the overwhelming loss of a loved one, along with the alternating feelings of despair, wistfulness, grief, faith, powerlessness, and hope of those left behind. The details, pacing, and construction are perfectly executed. A lovely, poignant story. Excellent!

When it comes to writing about death and the grief that comes with death, Marion Stein is the master at making you doubt your beliefs. In Schrodinger's Telephone she includes the idea of a parallel universe and whether you could cross over to find your loved ones again. It is a very thought provoking idea and well written, in fact it is so good that it should be developed into a full length novel, 100 pages just isn't enough to cover everything fully. A very clever author and a joy to read.
