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 knowledge and starts a journey that she can't stop as she learns she needs to keep the Multiverser out of Anton Zelov's hands and stop his New World Order.

The Good

For me, Anton Zelov is a great villain and was my favorite part of the book. He is an ex-spy exceptionally obsessed with Jane, and creates the New World Order in which he takes people and places them into the dimensions that suit him best. Not only that, but there is a 'black hole' dimension that people are placed in that seems especially terrifying to me. Other than Dr. Z, I enjoyed the idea of living different lives in separate dimensions. Helenowski describes multiple dimensions in details with the characters living out completely different lives in each. For example, in one dimension, Jane is married to her sweetie Randy and in another dimension she is the wife of her nemesis Zelov. Dr. Z appears to be basically evil in most dimensions except for a lonely one which was sweet to experience.

The Bad

I personally enjoy books better when they are written inside the mind of the main character as a first person experience where the reader gets to hear the thoughts of the character and the descriptions of how everything looks instead of a 'colder' third person telling. This book had a lot of descriptive words but it would have been a lot more personal to me if it would have been written from Jane's point of view instead. Another drawback was that it seemed like you were supposed to know the scientific language used and all the places named, and I was unfamiliar with a lot of it. I often got lost jumping from place to place because they all sounded similar and I had never really heard of them before so there was nothing to draw from in my memory bank to reference.

Conclusion

Order of the Dimensions was a little hard for me to read and get through but the story line was good and unique and ultimately worth reading.

I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy Science Fiction - especially time travel and multiple dimensions.
