I really struggled to get through this book despite really wanting to like it. The summary on Amazon sounds so interesting! And it is interesting, but also very confusing. I think it's ambitious to try to weave a story which incorporates different periods of time, quantum physics, philosophy and religion, so kudos to the author for having that ambition, but for me, it just didn't work as an enjoyable read. I was left with far too many questions at the end which feels frustrating. I have spent time on Wikipedia reading about Avicenna and Beauvais Cathedral and incubi - which has been educational, but I still don't get how the ideas in the book are meant to hang together.
