Dr. Quantum In The Grandfather Paradox


According to the best scientific minds, the collapse of the NGC4414 galaxy is imminent. Dr. Quantum and his inter-galactic team have been charged with saving NGC4414 or locating a friendly and hospitable galaxy for the multi-verse. This story focuses on the construction, staffing, and launching of Dr. Quantum's spaceship, Timechaser, and the challenges that awaited them in deep space.

Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Science Fiction fans who love the nitty-gritty of all things intergalactic may enjoy this deep space adventure.

Content Awareness Factors:

In his enthusiasm for his subject, the author thoughtfully included a glossary of scientific terms to help the reader cope with space jargon. The problem is that the reader has to continually refer to the glossary, causing him or her to break their train of thought.

Young Reader Reaction

This book was a great read. The plot moved quickly and I liked the exciting adventure about time. I liked how imaginative the story is. There are a lot of different alien races that come into play during the story. The only thing I did not like was that there were so many technical terms, which made it harder to read. This book would be a great book for sci-fi or adventure fans who also have an interest in the fourth dimension. (A note about this book: it is part of a series and not complete by itself.)

Parent Reaction

The author's goal is to educate and entertain his audience. He is bonkers about space science and his enthusiasm is wildly contagious. He knows his audience and keeps them on the edge of their seat.

Type of Book:
This is a middle grade fantasy that incorporates lots of science into the story.
Educational Themes:

The author is excited about all facets of space science and travel. He has provided the reader with an enjoyable story along with the rudiments of space science. The book is sure to capture the attention of the reader and serve as a source of discussion of the concepts and theories involved in space travel.
