Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The conclusion, that there are aliens in other universes but there aren't any in our universe, is a complete surprise.

Con: T.T Hynes is a rather unlikable character, and we don't really care about anything that happens to him--good or bad. The crazy physicist lady is also difficult to believe. The final scene seems to go on for longer than it really needs to.
