Overview

 

The doughnut is a thing of beauty.
A circle of fried doughy perfection.
A source of comfort in trying times, perhaps.
For Theo Bernstein, however, it is far, far more.

Things have been going pretty badly for Theo Bernstein. An unfortunate accident at work has lost him his job (and his work involved a Very Very Large Hadron Collider, so he's unlikely to get it back). His wife has left him. And he doesn't have any money.

Before Theo has time to fully appreciate the pointlessness of his own miserable existence, news arrives that his good friend Professor Pieter van Goyen, renowned physicist and Nobel laureate, has died.

By leaving the apparently worthless contents of his safety deposit to Theo, however, the professor has set him on a quest of epic proportions. A journey that will rewrite the laws of physics. A battle to save humanity itself.

This is the tale of a man who had nothing and gave it all up to find his destiny - and a doughnut.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
11/18/2013
Holt's (Blonde Bombshell) unsatisfying science fantasy caper starts off entertaining, when genius physicist Theo Bernstein is unable to find work in his field after blowing up the VVLHC (Very Very Large Hadron Collider). Bernstein is left penniless by a private equity scam, forced to work and live in a slaughterhouse, dumped by his fourth wife, and handicapped by an invisible right hand. Things get even worse when he receives a unique inheritance from his mentor, Nobel Laureate Pieter von Goyen: $5000, an apple, and the multiverses inside a bottle, guarded by mathematical equations. Solving the equations sends Theo tumbling dangerously through parallel universes populated by telepathic green aliens, murderous Disney characters, and western gunslingers. With amusingly absurd set-pieces but inconsistent characterizations, this assemblage of increasingly slipshod humor and illogical plot twists fails to deliver and, true to title, is rather hollow. (Mar.)
