The Walls of the Universe


Item Details

John Rayburn thought all of his problems were the mundane ones of an Ohio farm boy in his last year in high school. Then his doppelgänger appeared, tempted him with a device that let him travel across worlds, and stole his life from him. John soon finds himself caroming through universes, unable to return home-the device is broken. John settles in a new universe to unravel its secrets and fix it. Meanwhile, his doppelgänger tries to exploit the commercial technology he's stolen from other Earths: the Rubik's Cube! John's attempts to lie low in his new universe backfire when he inadvertently introduces pinball. It becomes a huge success. Both actions draw the notice of other, more dangerous travelers, who are exploiting worlds for ominous purposes. Fast-paced and exciting, this is SF adventure at its best from a rising star.

Great book. I highly recommend also checking out Charles Stross' Merchant Princes series if you like this book.

L'idée est intéressante et l'histoire commence très bien. Elle s'embrouille un peu par la suite jusqu'à devenir peu convaincante à la fin, à mes yeux. Mais ça reste tout de même divertissant. Ceux qui aimeront le thème de ce livre aimeront sans aucun doute la série de Northen Lights de Philip Pullman.
