September seemed to fly past. Now it's Fall. Cool crisp days and chilly nights. Well, not in Houston, where I live. Hopefully it's different where you live. Here's what I read in September.
double-slit experiment that showed the duality of light, it's both a particle and a wave. As he tries more sensitive photon detectors, he makes the unexpected discovery that if an animal makes the detection he would get a different result than if a human being made the detection. At this point, Kosmatka is, in my opinion as a chemical engineer, taking a lot of liberties with the theory. The story leads to a discovery of multiple universes and an age-old struggle between those who would try to collapse the universes and those who would not. A little confusing at the end.
Adam Price is a pretty ordinary guy, although on the high side of ordinary. He's a property lawyer with a beautiful wife, two wonderful sons and a big house in the suburbs. One night, a stranger approaches him in a bar and tells him a secret about his wife, something that Adam didn't know. The secret was devastating. It causes Adam to question his whole life. Meanwhile, this stranger is approaching other people with similarly devastating secrets. Adam's wife disappears and Adam attempts to find her and to also find the guy who has ruined his life. His and the other stories come together in a bloody confrontation. A pretty good who-dun-it and well written.
