In Max and the Multiverse, the first in a series from Zachry Wheeler, we meet Max. Max is your typical teen from Albuquerque. It's Spring Break and Max's parents have left for Hawaii, leaving him at home for the entire week. Max is in heaven since he can now play countless hours of video games. That would have been it, except that Max wakes up one morning with his cat, named Ross, talking to him with a British accent. What the..? Max's marathon gaming session caused him to crash into his keyboard where it just so happened to strike the right sequence of keys so that the universe, in its infinite wisdom, imprinted the ability for Max to shift between different universes in the great multiverse. Now, every time Max falls asleep and wakes up, he's in a different universe. Peachy.

Max and the Multiverse is a roller-coaster of a trip, fast-paced and filled with excitement from Zachry Wheeler. Max is unwittingly brought along for this ride and spends a fair amount of time flabbergasted by what he sees and experiences, but by the end, he decides that the roller coaster is much more exciting than the life he had back on Earth. Wheeler has created a setting (universe? multiverse?) where pretty much anything goes, the possibilities only limited by the ideas in his head. This is an imagination-fueled thrill ride so sit back and enjoy the trip. I highly recommend Max and the Multiverse to anybody who is a fan of Douglas Adams and the worlds he created in his Hitchhiker's Guide series. Zachry Wheeler has tapped into the quirky sci-fi humor that makes Hitchhiker's Guide so much fun. Max, like Arthur Dent, is whisked along for the ride of his life and is just as hapless most of the time. (Luckily, Max doesn't have to worry about keeping track of his towel or understanding Vogon poetry.) Pick up a copy of Max and the Multiverse and enjoy.
