{my thoughts} - This book is not what I was expecting. Do you know when you read a title you kind of have an idea about what the book might possibly be about. I was thinking that it would be something like Narnia – the characters would just travel to another hidden world. Well I was wrong, very wrong and really disappointed. It took me a long time to finish this book because I was having a hard to keeping my attention on it. Instead of traveling to one dimension the characters went to numerous o ...more

( I received this book free from the Author in exchange for my honest review )

I'm not fully sure if I like or dislike this book. The premises and plot is interesting, and had much potential, but as the story moved forward it got lost somewhere along the way.

I found the writing flat and dull at times. There also a repeat factor happening. It was like I was reading the same scenario over and over again, until the book ended. I was fed up after the first time.

There was a lot of jumping around, an

Detailed Review: Order of The Dimensions is a story about a girl called Jane Kremowski (can you see the similarities between the author's surname?) - she's a graduate for physics as well as an fly-by girl which connects the feelings of others to her.

Apparently Jane is working on a project and a device called 'Multiverser'. It's a device that allows another person or 'being' to enter/visit other alternate universes/dimensions. Impossible right? Well, Jane is working on that is similar like telep

Let me get this out of the way immediately. I am not a science fiction fan. I have never read Ray Bradbury, Philip K. Dick, Arthur C. Clarke or Isaac Asimov. The genre has simply never appealed to me . . . with the exception of time travel. I love stories involving time travel; the topic completely fascinates me and I never get tired of it. So when I was approached by author Irene Helenowski to read and review her debut work, Order of the Dimensions, I was in as soon as I heard it involved trave ...more

Portion of this review taken from my blog, The Reader's Commute. Check out the whole thing here: http://thereaderscommute.blogspot.com...

I wanted to get this out of the way first: Initially, I was a little taken aback by some issues with the writing. As a creative writing major, I've learned that it's important to not always "show," but "tell." Showing the reader the characters' every thought and action leaves little to be desired. The use of adverbs did not allow me the freedom to interpret the

The idea of travelling around dimensions caught my attention with this book and I thought it could be a really interesting concept that could explore many possibilities and events. The idea that people live different lives in alternative dimensions with varying degrees of happiness and problems is not a new concept to me, however I have never read a book that involved this so I was keen to see how Helenowski developed the story.

However I must admit that this book was pretty disappointing and not

This book starts innocuously enough with the fairly humdrum but happy life of Jane Kremowski. The introduction of a Dr Zelov, a work associate early on in the story heralds storms on the horizon and the author cleverly leads the reader into watching him suspiciously.

The work Jane is involved in is serious stuff and the damage that Dr Z. could do is pretty breath-taking, but the story is so layered that the reader does not panic too soon. He is led into mistrusting Dr Z by simple clues.

First, I want to say that I am not a super, huge sci-fi fan. I love watching sci-fi movies, but it's harder for me to get into books of the genre. However, for the most part, I did enjoy this book. It was a quick read and easier to understand than I initially thought it would be.

There are quite a few physics terms (at least I'm hoping it's physics - I'm not a science person lol) that we're supposed to understand without an explanation, which at first irritated me a bit. But, after a few of them

Jane starts off as a physics student before being pulled into another universe by her nemesis. Through out the book Jane jumps from one universe to another with the use of a multiverser which she was working on at the beginning of the book and soon she becomes a member of an underground Federation that h ...more

Okay, I like anything pertaining to either time travel or other dimensions-even though reading or watching anything about it usually cause a glitch in my brain. But I still enjoy the subject. So after starting the book and having my brain glitch up and then re-booted I found myself enjoying the story. I got engaged with Jane and her friends trying to stop Zelov and his henchmen from controlling all the dimensions. I also found myself hoping that she would prevail and lead the life that SHE wante ...more

The author of this book, Irene Helenowski, contacted me through Book Blogs and asked me if I would be interested in doing a review of this book in exchange for a free copy.

When I was 8, I daydreamed often that I had a twin somewhere in the world. I’d imagine that when I brushed my teeth, she was brushing hers too. It was an 8-year old’s take on parallel universes. Theories about parallel universes and multiverses assume that that each choice a person makes splits her world in two or more worlds

The story begins with Jane Kremowski, and a machine called a Multiverser or Multiverse Transport System. I really enjoyed discovering Jane’s character and her motivations. Late at night Jane powers the machine up and the next bit of info the reader gets is Jane leaving the machine at 3.30pm. Instantly I want to know more! What happened? What trouble is Jane getting herself into? I need to keep reading!

Initial Impressions

Time traveling and multiple dimensions seems like a pretty interesting plot line so I was up for the journey.
The Summary

Jane Kremoski is a star physics student who lives a pretty ordinary and happy life. The black spot marring her past is her parents were in a tragic car accident in which her cousin Tina became mentally-impaired. Jane is working with colleagues on a black box called the Multiverser that allows travel between dimensions. She is traveling without anyone's knowle

When I got the book, I first leafed through the book and my first impression was 'this is a book for people who have a bad vision', because the letters of the book are really big. But don't judge a book by his appearances! First I was planning to finish an other book I already started, an e-book, but I couldn't wait to start this book. So even though I was reading something else, I first read this book.

I must say, I'm impressed. I had little expectations, because I just didn't know what to expe

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This is a different book, to say the least. And "different" is not necessarily bad. It's just not a book for everyone. The idea, and the scientific theories behind it, fascinate me, and that's why I agreed to read and review it in the first place.

Even without a strong scientific background, Einstein's theories on time travel always intrigued me. In layman's terms (which are the only ones I can use), Einstein said that t

The conflict is strong between Jane and Dr. Z. He comes across as a friend but acts like he has ulterior motives. Jane tries to do her best to keep the secret of the machine from falling into the wrong hands but some of the events are out of her control. It takes Jane down an adventur

Talk about an original book! This book took me completely by surprise.

It is original, witty, full of surprised, and fast paced. I simply loved it!

I'm usually pretty picky about what I read. I have a hard time straying from my usual genres and authors. But (usually) when I do, I end up finding something pretty spectacular. That's what happened with Order of the Dimensions.

I'm a bit of a nerd, so I tend to watch the history channel a lot. I watched this show where they talked about the possibility of there being multiple universes out there, and in each one you were fulfilling all the possibilities and going down all the different paths in

"Order of the Dimensions" is about a physics grad named Jane Kremowski and she's been working on a groundbreaking project dubbed "The Multiverser". It's purpose is to allow people to travel into other dimensions; essentially other worlds where different versions of themselves may exist leading completely different lives.

We learn that Jane's Multiverser works and she's the first to use it, but two weeks

First of all, I want to thank the author for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review.

3.5 stars!


I have to say that I was thrilled when I read the blurb. Because I love time travelling stories but this one has an extra, it's not time travel but inter-dimension travel.

The idea is amazing, there is a lot of potential in this book. It's easy to notice Irene's imagination! I loved how many many worlds collided!

At first, I was a little lost, like: wait! where am I? Why are they there? lol

Jane Kremowski is one of the smartest physicists at Madison State University. Having created a device with her partner Mike they've made it possible to travel to different dimensions. While the device seems to be a great tool for human advancement in the future, a lot of people are looking to use the tool for their own personal gain.

For me, while I found the story interesting, it was a slow read for me. The idea of traveling though different dimensions and with the right calculations you can either remember what happened before or you could be completely oblivious. Although, I liked the plot of the book, I felt that the characters were not developed enough and kept you wanting more from them, it was hard to make any connection.There were some grammatical errors but nothing that can’t be fixed.

I was really intrigued when I read the book description about being able to travel to different dimensions of live and I was certainly not disappointed. In fact, after reading the first couple of chapters I was hooked. The chapters are nice and short, which makes it so easy to read 'just one more' then another and another. I didn't want to put the book down and looked forward to picking it back up to read more. A very quick read for a slow reader like myself.

cience fiction can be a very tricky thing to write. I know that might sound a little crazy but it is true. You have to take something that may have theories in the real world and apply them to a fiction story and make it believable. Believability in any fiction story, regardless of genre, has to have it. Helenowski is a new sci-fi writer for me and at first I was a little unsure. I like to stick with what I know, so to speak but I wanted to give this book a chance.
