The narrator doesn't seem to breath at all. No pauses between sentences. No pauses between scene shifts. Makes it hard to tell when one thought ends and the next begins.
Story idea is interesting. Kind of over does it on the math and physics part.
Almost anyone else.
I think the book would have been okay with a different narrator.
Might be willing to try this author again.
