This is definitely not a book for everyone, and this is evident within the first few pages. If you can grit your teeth, and just get through it you will have lived a lifetime from a new and unique perspective in less than 300 or so pages. Again. This book is NOT for everyone. That being said, it tells an excellent story with a unique spin analogous with simulation theory. Instead of computers dictating every aspect of what we perceive we live our lives by our own hand, but also in a completely random fashion.
