Picoverse by Robert A. Metzger

First sentence:

"The Nunn Physics Building, a six-story sprawl of red brick and smoked glass, dominated the northern boundary of Georgia Tech's campus, throwing a long shadow down 14th Street, painting the dozens of ramshackle student bungalows that hugged its western edge in depressing shades of gray and brown."


"In the early twenty-first century, a team of scientists has done the impossible -- ripped apart the fabric of space-time and created a brand new universe. . .one million-millionth the size of our own. Now, they're going to see where it takes them." -- from the back cover

My thoughts:

This was an interesting and challenging book to read. I liked the way the characters entered various alternate picoverses, sometimes for seconds at a time.
