Fiction. Science Fiction. Thriller. At CERN, a scientist has just made an incredible discovery??a breakthrough that may answer the deepest questions about human existence. But what he's found is far more dangerous than he ever imagined. Dr. Tyson Klein is a quantum physicist who has dedicated his entire life to his research. At CERN, he analyses data generated by the Large Hadron Collider, the world's biggest and most powerful particle accelerator. Now, Ty believes he's found a pattern in its output. It looks like an organised data stream, being broadcast over what he calls a quantum radio. Could it be a signal from another universe? A message sent from the future? Or something else entirely? As Ty peels back the layers of his discovery, he learns that what he's found isn't what he thought it was. The encoded message is far more profound. It may alter our understanding of human existence and the universe. But Ty is not the only one looking for it. Someone has been following his research for a long time. And they'll do anything to prevent him from unravelling what is being broadcast by the quantum radio ... Because the first one to discover the truth may well control the futu… (lisätietoja)

definitely an attempt to be crichton-esque, but for me, it lacked the focus and propulsion that his books always had, for better or for worse -- without spoiling the book, it's just such a sprawling story and it just feels like the 500 pages the author used to set up what is clearly meant to be a series could've been better used ( )

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!!! I loved this book. Riddle writes with passion for his subject matter. There is just not a boring page in this book. There is so much imagination and creativity as well as historical details that easily make the book long at 500 pages....but short to read because it is such a page turner. ( )

Politics. I read to escape Politics. Boring. Even Sci Fi future couldn't make this bare able for me. ( )

First sentence: In an auditorium at CERN, Tyson Klein stood behind a wooden podium, watching his colleagues arrive. It was the end of the workday, and most seemed tired.

Premise/plot: Tyson (Ty) Klein is one of four protagonists in A.G. Riddle's newest science fiction thriller. His newest discovery proves dangerous. The day he reveals his latest research, an attempt is made on his life. He flees to the United States with the help of his father. But it comes at a cost. The powers that be in the U.S. don't want him so closely involved in the project--even if it does rely heavily on his research. Both the "good guys" and the "bad guys" want to be the first to build and use a quantum radio. No one is quite sure exactly, exactly what it will do...but there is this race to be first.

When it is turned on or dialed, Ty and three companions are transported to an alternate universe--one of many in the multi-verse. They have a mission to solve though none of the four know what it is they are supposed to be doing. But they get an idea that that world--at least--will end within the week if they don't stop it from ending.

My thoughts: This one had all the elements that you would think I would naturally love, love, love. It reminded me in many ways of one of my favorite, favorite all-time favorite television shows that was cancelled way too soon. Perhaps because I kept thinking of that show--its twists and turns--I had a harder time connecting with the book in hand. That plus my natural skepticism/realism when it comes to "good guys" and "bad guys" in science fiction. There are obvious-obvious bad-guys, no doubt, but I'm not personally sure that the from-the-future-in-an-alternate-universe "good" guys are being 100% honest and straightforward.

This one stayed a strong "almost" for me for most of the novel. I think if the plot was a little tighter, perhaps, I would have loved it more? Or maybe I just need it to be a television show. ( )

Quantum Radio by A. G. Riddle has an intriguing premise: A quantum physicist working on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN discovers information encoded into the debris from high-energy particle collisions. I find the development of the idea less successful than the setup. To say more would lead to spoilers. 3.5 stars. ( )
