The Many Worlds of Albie Bright by Christopher Edge.

March 30, 2016

albieThe Many Worlds of Albie Bright by Christopher Edge. Pub. Nosy Crow, 2016.

It is said that if you think you understand quantum physics then you don’t understand quantum physics. This book is loosely about some of the principles that quantum physics seems to theorise about except this has a new concept called Quantum banana theory.

Don’t get confused because this book is about the marvellous concept of parallel universes. Yes that means  parallel worlds occupying the same space as this one we are in and in these worlds are a different version of ourselves, our parents, our friends and of our world.

Albie Bright wants to see his mum again. She has died of cancer after a brilliant science career at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland and he misses her. So does his dad.

Albie checks out his mothers work and finds her laptop computer which is plugged into the Hadron Collider. His father has told him that an atom can appear to be in two places at the same time and since we are made of atoms we can be in two places at once as well.

Using a banana as his source , a geiger counter and plugging it into this mothers laptop enclosed in a box, Albie travels  to four other parallel worlds in which everything including himself has subtly changed.

Albie’s plan is that his mother could be still alive in one of these parallel universes and he wants to see her again. What he finds is hilariously funny, deep and sad too, but fulfilling.

If it sounds like you, read it. the language is simple and the story bizaare. Intermediate and junior high school students will love this.

It is out there but it will not be published until 25th May 2016 so if you like it keep a note and order it later. You will not be sorry.
