Publisher's Summary

A quantum physicist shocks the world with a startling experiment, igniting a struggle between science and theology, free will and fate, and antagonizing forces not known to exist.
Eric Argus is a washout. His prodigious early work clouded his reputation and strained his sanity. But an old friend gives him another chance, an opportunity to step back into the light.
With three months to produce new research, Eric replicates the paradoxical double-slit experiment to see for himself the mysterious dual nature of light and matter. A simple but unprecedented inference blooms into a staggering discovery about human consciousness and the structure of the universe.
His findings are celebrated and condemned in equal measure, but no one can predict where the truth will lead. And as Eric seeks to understand the unfolding revelations, he must evade shadowy pursuers who believe he knows entirely too much already.

Started out good but fell flat

Enjoyed the beginning but about 1/3 into the story I started losing interest. The story hinges around the theoretical multi-universe, do we have a soul, do we really exist, etc. From there it is just about the protagonist learning about how the world really isn't what he thinks and him running from the bad guys. Lost interest and never got it back!

Better start than finish

I was very intrigued at the start of this book and it held my attention and interest until just over halfway. The science was a bit difficult for me to follow, but not unreasonably so, and I very much liked the forays into philosophy (and religion). As the story progressed it become a more standard tale and one that, for me, lost its uniqueness.
