Order of Dimensions by Irene Helenowski.
When Jane Kremowski first began her graduate studies in physics at Madison State University in Wisconsin, little did she know where her work would take her. Now, she is embroiled in a multitude of dimensions all leading to different outcomes. She and her colleagues therefore must act wisely in order to take and keep away the Order of Dimension from falling into the wrong hands for the sake of her loved ones.
First of all, I want to thank the author for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have to say that I was thrilled when I read the blurb. Because I love time travelling stories but this one has an extra, it's not time travel but inter-dimension travel.
The idea is amazing, there is a lot of potential in this book. It's easy to notice Irene's imagination! In loved how many many worlds collided!
At first, I was a little lost, like: wait! where am I? Why are they there? lol but I caught up pretty fast with the plot and found it very entertaining. You just have to go through the first 25% and then everything flows better.
I'm not a huge fan of the development of the dialogues though. I loved the way the author built the different worlds but the characters where hard to relate to.
We have our protagonist, Jane. She is a scientist and a very clever one, that happens to create a device to travel from one dimension to another, and as every good story, things can't be so easy, and we have a creepy villain: Dr. Anton Zelov, or as the author often refers to: Dr Z.
I must admit that at times he appeared to me a little like Dr. Evil from Austin Powers' movies. Sorry! but that image kept popping into my mind, for the way he talks and acts. But definitely he is my favorite character :)
He is not only evil but also he is obsessed with Jane and he creates an alternative dimension where she is his wife and in ever dimension he torments her.
Jane is smart (obviously, otherwise she wouldn't have created the Multiverser!) but couldn't get to know her very much.
Randy is her boyfriend and someone Dr Z. doesn't like whatsoever! So he keeps sending him to other dimensions. Amy is a nice character, want to know more about her.
How the story unfolds and how the different dimensions come together, make this a very nice read.
Now..., do you want to know how this mess untangles? READ THE BOOK! lol.
- - Describe your book in 5 words or less.
Adventures in inter-dimensional travel :)
- - Where did you get the inspiration for your book?
I became fascinated with the multiverse theory after watching several science specials on it and started thinking about a story where different characters could lead completely different lives in different dimensions.
- - Can we find a little bit of Irene in these characters?
Yes, I can definitely see myself in each character, especially in their flaws and insecurities.
- - Who is your favorite character and why?
I liked writing Jane's daughter, Amy; she's really a sweet and charming little girl in each dimension.
- - If you could invite any person for dinner, who would it be and why?
I would love to have dinner with a real theoretical physicist, as Michio Kaku, Brian Greene or Lisa Randall and talk to them about the real implications of multiple dimensions. If they would chat with me about my book, that would be an added bonus :)
- - Which is your favorite book?
Too many to list :)
- - Tell us about your writing process.
If I get an idea, I'll start typing on my laptop at home or during my lunch hour at work, I also like listening to music as I write.
- - Any projects for the future?
I’m working on a sequel and thought that I would be done within a year, but I keep changing and adding storylines, so I don't have a definite timeline of when I'll be done at the moment.
