Wally Roux, Quantum Mechanic, by Nick Carr (author), William Jackson Harper (narrator)

Audible Originals, August 2019

Wally Roux is a teenage genius whose mother adopted him when he was an infant, and has just moved them from Maine to Savannah, Georgia. It is, in his opinion, lonely and boring at best. In addition to that, though, there's a strange space-time hiccup causing weird problems in his neighborhood. For instance, when he walks to and from school each day, he really is walking uphill, both ways.

After a chance encounter leads to him using his excellent mechanical skills to fix a bus engine, he starts thinking that maybe, with some study of quantum mechanics, he might be able to fix the the space-time malfunction, too.

On a certain level, he knows this doesn't really make much sense, but what the heck. He's doing really well in school and he has no friends to spend time with, and it could make life easier if the road to school isn't uphill both ways anymore.

This story is light, funny, and a lot of fun, and the narrator is excellent.


I received this audiobook free as part of Audible's Audible Originals program, and am reviewing it voluntarily.
