    I wanted to like this more. I really did.Anything that brings to life the littlest of particles and turns them into living, breathing macrocosmic entities has got my fourteen thumbs of flipped approval. I thought the action sequences were quite out of a superhero movie, with teleportation, flight, and even a Doctor Doom blowing up cities from safely behind another dimension while the rest of us contemplate the wonders of time travel and decide how to get around all the timey-wimey stuff.Great id [...]

    3.5 StarsThis was good but not as quite as good as the first book. I really liked the characters, and there were moments that the villains deservedly reached evil genius status, but the story didn't have quite the same page turning quality as I thought Superposition had.Nevertheless, it was very readable and I would recommend it to anyone who read and enjoyed Superposition.

    (Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter]. I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted illegally.)The older and more experienced I get as a professional book reviewer, the more I'm realizing that there are in fact two radically different types of science-fiction novel out there, a genre which I've been faithfully (if not indiscriminately) reading since I was a kid; there are the science-fiction novels that [...]

    This is a solid sequel to the first explaining much that the first one left unresolved and with far more compelling characters. The science goes way out there though. The first was an interesting play on the boundaries of quantum physics and an exploration of those concepts. This one goes way beyond that into some very speculative versions of our current theories of physics.Alex and Sandra, the "twins" from the first book, have grown up to be very different people. Alex has followed in her fathe [...]

    Supersymmetry 5 Stars - Walton brings back the Kelley family and even more twists, as the varcolac comes to visit again!Where I like Superposition, I loved Supersymmetry. It never slows down, never gives you time to think you know what is coming. David Walton showcases time travel and many other new toys in the quantum physics arsenal. Between the varcolac, time travel, teleporting and so on, Walton again shows us that he can tether all these great ideas into a story that reads just too perfectl [...]

    This book is kind of a follow up to Superposition. It features the Kelley family. Also, I can't forget the varcolac. The reason I say that this book is "kind of" because if you have not read Superposition, then you still will be drawn to this book but I can tell you that after finishing this book, you will want to go back and pick up a copy. I could not stop reading this book. When I did put it down for a moment, I was already half way done. Of course, when I could, I rushed back to this book an [...]

    Enjoyable only because it was the second book in a series and I was curious what was in store for Alex and Sandra. However, there were not as many puzzles to try and figure out so the beginning was not as mysterious as in Superposition. Also, the science got to be too much for me to want to follow along with, and the fact that 3 of the 4 siblings "just happened" to be involved with the disaster but in different capacities had me rolling my eyes. But it was a quick read and I did enjoy the ending [...]

    Following on its prequel, SUPERPOSITION, this starts 15 years later with some of the original characters, including the family affected by the varcolac in Superposition.The varcolac is back, as can be seen from a disaster in a stadium at the beginning of the novel, where among other things that occur, the father of the family -- being in range of the varcolac's influence -- gets split in two, one of him staying in the stadium and the other going home. By the end of the disaster, his split resolv [...]

    4/5 Rating Originally posted at mylifemybooksmyescape.wordpreMore plot twists and thrilling action, but now, with time-travel!*Disclaimer: I was provided with a review copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion*After reading Superposition I was impressed by both how much Walton had improved from the first novel I'd read by him, and by how great the story was (my review). Now, after reading Supersymmetry, I am once again impressed and am having hard time picking deciding which one [...]

    I always thought that Dark Matter by Blake Crouch was a watered-down version of Superposition by David Walton, and this fast-paced, intriguing sequel proves that. Although there is only one reference to ‘supersymmetries’, in a single sentence mentioning M-theory and branes. Go figure. My eyes tend to glaze over when a writer has to introduce diagrams to explain his point of view, but these are placed so artfully in the climax, and become such an integral part of the plot, that it really work [...]

    Originally posted at: thebookplank/2015Earlier this year I read David Walton's Superposition, the book to which Supersymmetry is the sequel. I knew David Walton from a different epic fantasy book Quintessence which took be by surprise, which also happened with Superposition, I am a big fan of Science Fiction that could well play into our current time frame. This is precisely what David Walton did in Superposition, when you meddle with quantum physics You can open a whole load of unpleasantness S [...]

    Sometimes I put a book down because I lose interest, and sometimes I put a book down because my mind has taken a big chunk from the book and must digest it. Sometimes I put a book down because I'd rather read the news, and sometimes I put a book down because I am enjoying it so much that I want to savor it, I simply don't want it to end. I was in a reading slump when I found Supersymmetry in a library. There is so much going on in the book, so many unexpected twists and turns right from the star [...]

    Engrossing, no matter how many times I read thisI loved both books in this series. Hikes in the science, but after all, that’s why quantum physics makes for really good or really BAD stories. This is one of the great ones. Just stretched enough to make a world where you can immerse yourself.

    Erin
    An enjoyable follow-up to Superposition. It lacks the murder mystery component, but I enjoyed the aspects of quantum physics, the multiverse, black holes, and time travel. The villains were a bit mustache-twirly, but not enough to ruin the story for me.

    This was a fun (and mind boggling) second book in the Superposition series. Not sure if there will be a third, but if there is, I will definitely read it!

    Review brought by Geekly Review‘Supersymmetry’, by David Walton, is the just-released continuation of ‘Superposition’. A technothriller very much in the same spirit and kind as the beginning of the duology, it is engrossing and fascinating, and features very similar themes that are explored throughout the book. It is fast-paced, and filled with action and mystery, and if you’ve read ‘Superposition’ you’ll definitely know what to expect from this book.‘Supersymmetry’ follows R [...]

    Review originally posted at Reading Lark: readinglark/2015/With Supersymmetry, the second novel in his Superposition series, David Walton once again delivers the kind of fresh and philosophical science fiction I have come to expect.Supersymmetry finds the twins, Alex and Sandra, grown up and apart, living separate lives. They are drawn back together and into danger when their father is killed along with hundreds of others in an explosion that destroys a baseball stadium. As Sandra works the fore [...]

    David Walton’s Supersymmetry is a sequel that’s not a sequel. I’ve not read the previous book, Superposition, but I followed this book perfectly fine as it stands alone easily. It possibly helps that the story takes place 15 years after the first book, so every reader will need some catching up on what’s been going on. I get the impression they make a good pair though, which is apt given the amount of duality involved in this story.The story takes place in a not too distant future. Or pe [...]

    Supersymmetry is a great followup to Superposition. In my review of Superposition I pointed out one of the great character moments for Jacob Kelly was his connection with his teenage daughter Alessandra. In Supersymmetry we leave Jacob behind and follow his, now twin, daughters, Alex and Sandra, as they try to solve the mystery of an imploded stadium and battle the varcolac again.I really liked all of the primary characters. Alex and Sandra, who are the same person split by contact with the varc [...]

    I received this book through giveaway in exchange for an honest review.Wow, I have to say that the very first page hooked me throughout the whole book. I remember reading about Jacob Kelley and how he was at the baseball game and at first I thought, what in the world is happening, is he having a heart attack or something? But nooo, it was the whole stadium that suddenly collapses, it just made it seem that he was the one having like a medical condition. I was totally hooked, because the daughte [...]

    David Walton continues his tale of an artificially life form that lives on the quantum computer that is the Universe. The Varcolac returns fifteen years after the events of Superposition (paper). Ryan Oronzi has created a separate universe and is using it to allow quantum effects like teleportation and Supersymmetry (Trade from Pyr). Jacob Kelly, the hero of the first tale is murdered by an implosion at a Baseball Stadium. His daughters, Sandra a cop, and Alex, a physicist (they were the same pe [...]

    Not quite as good as the original novel Superposition, this novel takes place 15 years after the first. The main device of the novels is that there is a way to make quantum effects occur in the macroscopic world which provides the equivalent of near superhuman capabilities such as teleportation, walking through walls, moving objects at a distance, etc. It can also can split people in two based on a decision event providing a superposition event in the quantum mechanical sense. Ultimately, the pl [...]

    The events in this book occur fifteen years after those in Superposition. While I enjoyed this book, I didn't find it quite as exciting as Superposition. It was still enjoyable, and at the end I couldn't stop listening (this was an audiobook for me).The first book was a murder mystery and Schrodinger's cat mashed up together, and the events centered around the Kelley family. In Supersymmetry, the events are bigger, and global in scale, and involved time travel. That being said, I felt sometimes [...]

    What a disappointment. Seemed promising, stuck with it even as it became more and more annoying and stupid. Finally, I'd had enough of the characters' inner monologues, repeated ad nauseum, "oh my, am I the 'real' sister or a fiction created by a quantum split? What will happen if we merge back into one person?!" and the evil Ryan character, endlessly whining about how he was meant to be the most evil one, and how could he stop them from foiling his plot to be…evil? Just utterly stupid.

    Sean Randall
    The first chapter hurls us straight into this exciting, non-stop edge-of-your-seat thrill ride. I really enjoyed the whole thing, and although it seemed a shame that Jacob didn't have much of a showing otherwise it was a fantastic story, putting me in mind of a Doug Richards novel quite a lot. Walton's crafted a superb follow-on, and That loaded question in the very final chapter keeps the universe wide open for other stories.

    BJ Thompson
    The science seems like a future we could live in soon. The story is interesting and is fast enough to keep me turning the pages. There are times when there is too much science talk, but for the type of book it is to be expected and needed for most people unless you have a strong science background.Enjoyed and will keep an eye out for more from the author

    Dakota
    Even faster paced and wide-ranging in plot and resolution than Superposition! If you liked the first in this series, you'll dig Supersymmetry. The vercolac is back, and this time it is pissssssed off.

    I didn't read the first book in the series, but I caught the gist of the back story. Interwoven between the quantum physics speak was a pretty entertaining story. Wish we had some way now to turn back the dial, as it were, on all the unfortunate paths we are on.

    Jimmit Shah
    Started as a promising series in Book 1 but this book was bad. I cannot believe that the whole book was such a waste of space. I have liked two prior books of David Walton and was not expecting such a limp plot.
