Publisher's Summary

Tomorrow is yesterday.

It is 2056. Mathematics professor Elisabeth Gabai is fascinated by multi-dimensional forms that have no equivalent in reality. Then, her boss sends her to the site of an artifact that might have come straight from her theories—or from the technology of an advanced civilization.

Twenty-eight years earlier, physicist Max Webber is hell-bent on improving Einstein’s theories of relativity. His latest concept seems flawless, except it predicts the end of humanity. The extinction of Earth can only be prevented if Max can locate a multi-dimensional object. He’s in a hurry; tomorrow will inevitably be too late.

But how is he supposed to accomplish this goal when physics tells us the artifact he seeks cannot possibly exist?

Wow! Great find.

Out of my close to 300 Audible titles, this is only the 3rd I’ve taken the time to review. I love time travel and paradox stories. This story takes a different approach than most. The story progresses in such an odd way that I had to listen a second time to really grasp it before I could begin the second book. It was awesome!
I had the benefit of having listened to professor Carroll’s lecture on time many times and this still made my brain hurt.
I don’t want to ruin it with spoilers. I highly recommend the trilogy. The performance by the reader was also very good. I especially enjoyed having one of my physicist hero’s mentioned in the credits. A first for me. :) Enjoy

Mobius The timeless artefact

I’m always on the lookout for a science fiction story with a difference, something compelling and believable that captures the imagination rather than the usual well trodden path of boy goes back in time to save humanity from their past mistakes blah blah blah. Morbius on the face of it seemed to have all the ingredients to spike my curiosity. An artefact with impossible physical properties existing outside of time. Wow I thought, what could it be? Where did it come from? Who put it there? Sadly even after reading the book I’m none the wiser. (presumably that will made clear in the second part)

The book hinges on the fact that time is going backwards so tomorrow is really yesterday and anything you achieve today you won’t remember because you haven’t done it yet. Still with me? I must confess I did like that part but I couldn’t get my head around it because it just doesn’t make sense and I’m not going to even try and explain why.

To my mind the storyline is a bit thin and confusing, the characters weak and unmemorable and Shawn Comptons portrayal of them irritating. I appreciate any book that deals with subject of time the author has his work cut out to explain it in a way that makes sense to the masses. To this end there is a chapter at the end of the book which tries to explain some of the theories pertaining to time but unless your Steven Hawking or a post graduate in quantum physics I’d skip that part to be honest.

It is true to say however that I did listen to the end and although I can’t personally recommend the book you may enjoy it who can tell.

Sci-fi influenced by Memento

Told in a structure not unlike the film Memento, Mobius puts interesting characters into a world where time seems to be unraveling.

This book does assume a degree of physics knowledge. It will be better if you already understand the difference between the concept of the entropic arrow of time and the thermodynamic arrow of time.
