This is my first book by this author and I enjoyed it. The narration created vivid images of the characters and scenes in my mind. The story ends inconclusively. I guess there will be a sequel.
I really like the thorough explanation of 'model dependent realism'.I don't like the fact that despite the flaws of relativity, the author projects it as absolute truth and uses it as a basis for validating M-theory.
The book carries primarily one school of thought and focuses too much on main stream physics. A discussion of recent experiments showing faster than light speeds, the source charge problem, wave nature of gravity, etc would have balanced things.
The performance was okay. It is a challenge explaining scientific concepts to everyday listeners.
A follow-up book presenting the same views wouldn't be of any use.
