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!

Ted Kosmatka is My New Favorite Writer
What did you love best about The Flicker Men?
The writing in The Flickermen is superb--some of the best I have ever read. The writer uses dramatic images fleshed out in tight text to cast characters and a plot that is exciting, interesting and engrossing. At the risk of sounding cliche, this book was a page turner that I had trouble setting down.
What did you like best about this story?
The story was fresh and compelling. In a lot of audio books, I find myself wishing to get by certain points. . .the authors either draw things out too long or are too choppy for comfort. Not so with this story; the character development is efficient and the scenes rich and varied; little in this book is over done.
What does Keith Szarabajka bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
My first impression of the narrator was that his voice sounded too old for the main character. After a bit, though, I came to love his performance. Keith Szarabajka made the main character into an old wise soul while Ted Kosmatka keep him from being a super hero or a know-it-all.
As I eye up future books to listen to, I disappointed that Keith Szarabajka does not perform other books by the author.
Any additional comments?
This book is now one of my all time favorite audio books and that is saying something. I highly recommend this to others. It is a real shame that more people have not experienced this book to date.
