Publisher's Summary

Why would we need music if our lives were exactly as we wanted them to be?
Karl Bender is a quiet guy who lives in three places: his bar, his apartment, and the cheap Mediterranean place on the corner that keeps him well fed with his daily portion of hummus and chicken shwarma. But that's all about to change. When he stumbles upon a time-traveling wormhole, Karl develops a business selling access to people who want to go back in time to hear their favorite bands. It's a pretty ingenious plan, and Karl's indie rock ethics ensure that he keeps things small and special.
Until, that is, he mistakenly transports best friend Wayne to 980 Mannahattan instead of 1980 Manhattan. Karl is distraught. He needs an ally. And he finds one in brilliant, prickly, overweight astrophysicist Lena Geduldig. The connection is immediate. While they work on getting Wayne back, Karl and Lena fall in love - with time travel and each other. Unable to resist meddling with the past, they bounce around time. That's when they alter the course of their lives. That's when they threaten their future together.
A wild romp of a love story across time, Every Anxious Wave plays ball with the big questions: Who would we become if we could rewrite our pasts? How do we hold on to love across time?

One. Full. Day.

I spent one entire day listening to this magnetic novel.
As one Doctor might say, "Time is more of a wibbly-wobbly timey wimey...stuff..." so reads the pages of this constantly evolving book.
It's also not really a book.
The science behind the time travel on this work is simple, but not too simple. Facts behind the theories spoken of are accurate, if not only to keep the story moving at a film style pace.
With prose on sad-sackery through nostalgia honed in on the late 80's to early 90's, the reminders of a long lost era never bogs down the read, nor does the narrator let the sometimes down beat prose keep the flow moving.
With passages on subjects on the Einstein–Rosen bridge and the quantum physics behind the tech that enables cross time texting, this roadmap through time and space peaks and bends the notion behind a theme that absolute love, and an Elliot Smith lyric, transcends the good Doctors ideas.

Frustrating

The story begins with exciting time traveling experiences then turns into a weird soap opera with a long drawn out ending that is neither a relief or a surprise. Too much swearing.
