The idea of inventing a time machine is one present in many science-fiction novels and is often the subject of much curiosity. This concept is explored in Robert Leet’s Timewise. However, Leet examines time through the lens of quantum physics. The novel follows Ron. He starts the novel as an orphan with an affinity for chess. Then, he meets Regina Russo, a physicist with a unique view of physics. She encourages Ron to continue his studies and eventually helps him pay for college so he can earn a math degree. She also shares her theories about quantum physics.

The novel was well-written and well-edited. I only spotted a few minor errors in the book; it seemed as though this book was professionally edited.

The characters in the novel are interesting. Ron starts as a young man who has no real interest in much except poker. He grows a lot throughout the novel and had excellent character development. I felt as though I could relate to him, which made the book more compelling. Regina was also an interesting character. She has a rich backstory that is revealed throughout the book, and her conversations with Ron highlight the two’s character traits.

This book, which focuses heavily on advanced physics theories, is not the easiest read. As someone with a science background, I mostly found that I was able to follow the theories presented in this book. However, there is a lot of scientific jargon some may have a hard time following. If you are not interested in physicist, this is not the book for you as that is the focus. However, the theories were my favorite part of the book. They were explained in beautiful language and force you to think about science in a new light.

I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. I can’t think of anything I did not like about this book. There was profanity. There was also some sexual content in the book but nothing graphic. I would recommend this to readers who have at least some knowledge of physics. I feel like otherwise, most of the book would make little sense. There are also many ideas posed in this book that are not answered. Concepts are brought into the light, but, like real science, there is not always an explanation. If you are looking for an in-depth book that will make you think, then this is the perfect book for you.

Thank you for such a thorough review! I appreciate your honesty about the book not being an easy read. Needing to have a scientific background could be a turn off for some readers, I imagine.

It's a bit of a niche subject but quite an interesting one for those that enjoy it.
