Easily the best I've read in years! My only problem is that it ended. The different presentations were original and if completed as a normal narrative, the story would have been incomprehensible. Please inform me if other stories such as this are available. Loved it,

Hard to put down from the start. Boggles the mind with all the possibilities.

While it never quite reaches the ridiculous heights that Reamde achieves (Russian mobsters, Chinese hackers, terrorists and hostages all at the same place) it does have the same level of intelligence and humor while also managing to strike a blow for those suffering under excessive bureaucracy.

A bit slow at parts, but overall a very fun read. Really great blend of magic and quantum physics.

Excellent characters, wonderful 'what if' plot.

I enjoyed this book. Full of details. Jumps into doing things quickly without defining the why but keeps you interested still.

Overall a fun read. Got a little tedious in the middle when the writing style changed. Once it got back to the original flow it moved along nicely.

Interesting story but drags through a lot of details where I forget the why it's interesting. DODO could end DOA.

Amid this book's numerous sins, the greatest is probably that it ends not with a fall, but a whimper. Setting aside the sexism, the unnecessarily incorrect scientific detail, and the romance between two people with no chemistry, the story is a series of bigger and bigger missteps, larger and more cumbersome bureaucracies, solutions that require every more complex solutions bolted on... all of which ends in a side-step and a shuffle; we get setup for a (please, no) sequel, a page or two of 'and finally they had sex!', and a whole lot of 'wait, that was it?' The title promises a fall, but the book itself is unwilling to give us a proper cataclysm, and it's all just a little pointless and unsatisfying.
