Welcome to the Space-Time Continuum
This is a creative and interesting story for all readers who enjoy Philosophy mixed with Sci-fi
and mystery sprinkled with adventure.
It is a Book that will make you think and contemplate your existence.
The Narrator did a good job with the material.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Half story, half pseudo science textbook
It started out as a great book, but as it went on it started to lose my interest. All that therein no free will over and over again was getting on my nerves. Also the musings on the universe and quantum physics were cool at the beginning, but after a while they went on and on that some time I had to go back to remember where in the real story it left off before the science interlude. I didn't see it mentioned in other reviews, but I'm pretty sure that there is a part missing between part 5 and 6. I mean, he was driving to the event and musing, next instant he was arriving home after being to the event and musing some more. That part was particularly confusing to follow fora while. The narration was great and did an excellent job expressing the story. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A brainteaser on the back of a cereal box.
An English teacher and aspiring author, seperated from wife and children, flips a coin to decide whether to live or die, but his attempt to step in front of a train is thwarted by a shout from a girl in the crowd. Paul follows her, enduring a terrifying taxi ride, and so begins the ride of, and for, his life.
Written in the first person by the self confessed "shitty writer" himself, the book is a noire thriller filled with basic explanations of quantum theory, parallel universes and the existence of free will versus determinism. It is exhilarating, mind bending and great fun as well as an exciting read. It doesn't matter if you don't already know the science, it's all laid out there for the reader to absorb or slide through or tangle up in, but always to marvel at the marvellous complexity of opposites. In an Afterwards, author Robert Kroese comments on the scientific content and the suggestion that "Anything that can happen, does happen."
Narrator Curt Bonnem becomes the somewhat bewildered and beguiled Paul caught up, against his will? in happenings of cause and effect - but who is causing? Bonnem's performance is smooth, sardonic, desperate: everything that Paul experiences. The reading is well paced with clarity and other characters besides the main protagonist are also given voices of their own. Text and narrator fuse together in harmony.
Schrödinger's Gat is a strange but immersive book, made very accessible by the good narration. It is simultaneously an easy read and one which is difficult to absorb. And humerous, too. I was very fortunate in receiving a complimentary copy, at my request, from the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. I wish that my equally freely given review could do better justice to this extraordinary and fun book. Better just to say, listen to it yourself. No, don't toss a coin to decide - just get it!
