Overview

In this novel that explores the intersection of science and spirituality, Theodore Reveil, one of the leading lights in string theory physics, is on his way to present his latest research at a triumphant meeting of his colleagues from around the world when he realizes that he has lost the notes for his presentation. Verging on panic, he is in the middle of ransacking his hotel room for the missing notes when he is stopped in his tracks by a voice—and a vision. Shaken by what he has just experienced, he takes the stage to deliver his speech, note-less. In the midst of his distraction and confusion, he poses the question “What if the Universe, instead of being a giant machine, is really a giant thought?” Then, before his astonished colleagues, Theodore makes an even bolder assertion: “The unsolvable terms in our equations may be road signs pointing to consciousness—to God—as the missing piece of the puzzle.” Antiphony traces the downward spiral of Theodore’s career in the wake of his controversial statements, as well as the remarkable transformation that threatens to lead him to the depths of madness—or the revelation of the Final Theory, the ultimate secret of the universe. Readers interested in the nature of the universe, consciousness, and spirit will find this novel engaging, entertaining, and thought-provoking.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Antiphony is, in many ways, an awe-inspiring novel. . . . Writer Chris Katsaropoulos has a way of delving deeply into what seem like small moments . . . . It makes me wonder how he did it.”  —Al Riske, author, Precarious and Sabrina’s Window
"With the debate between supporters of evolution and creationism, Antiphony is an intruguing timely tale. Fans who prefer something offbeat will appreciate Chris Katsaropoulos' profound character study of a physicist on the brink of discover, insanity or both." —Harriet Klausner, midwestbookreview.com

“Read the book! The story is fascinating, and the writing is powerful and poetic.”  —BlogCritics.org

“Hold on to your chair or you will be totally transported out of your comfort zone by Antiphony. . . . Katsaropoulos is an emerging fresh literary voice not to be overlooked.”  —NUVO Newsweekly

"[An] epic poem cum novel, Antiphony [is] a book so eloquent and brilliant that it requires time to explore this obvious treasure. It is related to the great works of literature – James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, Virginia Woolf, Tolstoy, Proust, Kafka, Melville, and Conrad." —Grady Harp, literaryaficionado.com

"Antiphony blends reality and non-reality in a fabulous way. There are dreams and visions, there’s science and of course the piece itself is fiction but could be a real story theoretically. Interesting!" —Kathryn Vercillo, diaryofasmartchick.com

"The writing style was superb, and my head was spinning with fodder. Watching Theodore’s life crumble before his eyes, and his inability to cope (or perhaps ability to see more clearly for a different audience) was heart-breaking, maddening and incredible to read." —naimeless.wordpress.com

"Chris has delivered a truly poignant story where nothing is as it seems. This is definitely a book I’ll be sitting down to read again sometime soon." —Lissette E. Manning, simplistik.org

"This was one of those books that make you question everything you know about science and the Earth. I really liked this book, and I am giving it a 5/5." —dealsharingaunt.blogspot.com
