Summary

"Einstein was wrong. Light is not the fastest thing in the universe...information is. And everything is information."

After the untimely death of his mentor, Berkeley physicist Joshua Andrews has dedicated himself to finishing his mentor’s life work: Creating entangled particles that can communicate faster than light. When scientific journalist Rachael Miller comes to interview him at his lab, they make an astounding discovery, one as ancient as the universe itself.

During the early moments of the Big Bang, entangled particles were created that spread with the expansion of the universe creating a subatomic communication network - a network that Joshua and Rachael have accidentally tapped into.

This discovery sets the pair off on an incredible journey of revelation that profoundly alters the course of human history and redefines the meaning of life itself. Their journey ultimately leads them to a distant planet, New Eden, a genetically engineered paradise designed to be the new home for humanity.

A very good first book

This book had everything
Hard(ish) science
Adventure
Humour
Romance
Theology
It was well read, but I think it was slightly stilted
I look forward to reading future books

Exceptional modern and mind blowing book.

I had low expectations for this, but it blew me away.
Scientific details plus philosophical depth and universe spanning believable concepts just means WOW.

Good premise, too much author bias!

Love the science and idea behind this story but as the book went on the religious nature of the author got stronger and stronger. It got so bad that I had to quit listening.

I don’t like having an author preach to me and push their religious agenda. That’s what this author did and it was ver noticeable.

The narrator is very good. Too bad he was reading someone else’s religious garbage.

Engaging Story and Enjoyable Listen

I found myself unable to stop listening to this story. Thankfully I had many hours on a road trip to listen to the story. This is so well produced and so incredibly engaging that you feel truly immersed in the world that Kishore Tipirneni weaves. I would absolutely listen to this again, and I've already recommended it to friends.

I'll read it again.

I enjoyed this book. I would like to see a sequel. hopefully one that is more adventure than philosophical. Not to say I didnt enjoy the philosophical aspects.

Terrible book.

I have 150+ books in my library. This is my first review. I felt the need to describe how awful this book is. It’s not sci-fi, it’s a terrible love story. The dialogue is cheesy and unrealistic. The characters are supposed to be in their late 20’s/early 30’s but act like they are 60+ based on their vocabulary and pop culture references. The story has ridiculous jumps and advances for the sole purpose of trying to make an interesting love story and fails miserably. Don’t waste your money or credit.

Excellent!

Excellent and ready for a sequel - broad scope and I hope this is the foundation for many, many more.

Extremely thought provoking and enjoyable story

The author does a great job of using current cutting edge scientific concepts to tell a story that really makes you consider your place in the universe and your own relationships right here.
I was really impressed with the accuracy of how some difficult theories are explained and how they are put into terms that make them easy to wrap your head around.
Great book all around.

Spooking food for thought.

It’s a good book. Read it. It will open your mind to the possibilities that might be out there.

Mis-Categorized Mess

I get that this is the author's first novel. What I don't get is how this novel, so full of inconsistencies, plot holes, silly fake-science (not science fiction, rather nonsensical non-science!) and preaching made it onto Audible.
First, the novel should have been published in the category of young adult or juvenile fantasy fiction. The characters are inane and immature, the jokes are barely above the level of "potty jokes," the characters are only likeable if you are, say, under 13 years old. The more "serious" characters are caricatures: the low-IQ beaurocrat head of NASA, the ignorant and low-brow "general," essentially all of the main characters are pure cliché and insulting.
Second, the "science" is ridiculous. Let me give a rundown: the protagonist, a lovable, not very bright, plodding and love-lorn physicist, somehow randomly stumbles on the ability to capture a single "spookion," which is a magical subatomic particle that is quantum-entangled with another "spookion" that was created by "god" at the beginning of the universe, inside of a glass sphere that is about two inches in diameter. Somehow this particle is kept magically trapped in the sphere, while magical detectors somehow detect its quantum spin (never mind that a sub-atomic particle would be so small it would slide between the atoms of the glass sphere, or be indetectable outside of a room-sized device). And since it is magically entangled with another particle that is magically embedded in the brain of an alien somewhere else in the universe, they are able to magically communicate via a magical algorythm magically created by a juvenile-minded, sex-obsessed computer genius, who is able to teach the alien all about humanity in 10 minutes. Eventually the alien consciousness is embedded in a magical android (remember, this is current history, not the future) where, when awoken, the alien breaks into a brake dance because, being a lovable character, the computer genius taught the alien human culture using brake-dance videos.
Third, enough with the preaching. The author seems to have decided to use the novel as a platform to present his intelligent-design mythology about the creation of life and the requirement for some type of intelligent designer being required for complex structures to arise from nothingness. Yeah, I get it, it is a fiction novel. But when authors sneak in their religion, especially something as discredited as intelligent design, under the guise of plot device it is insulting.
So, let's not call this science fiction. It is shallow, preachy, young adult fantasy. If unsophistocated juvenile quasi-religious is your thing, you might enjoy it. I did not.

Great entertaining book

The book was very fast based and kept you sucked in through the whole thing. There were a few cheesy explanations of the "science fact" portions of the book that interrupted the flow a bit. however, I'd still recommend this to anyone looking for a great read.

Great story and narration

I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book It was well paced and thoughtful a fresh take on finding intelligent life in the universe and the aftermath of finding that life. I hope there is a sequel and I can't wait for it. Worth the credit
