The premise is a compelling one. How would you survive if your doppelganger from a parallel universe tricked you into giving up your life for a supposed quick trip to another parallel universe...only it turns out the device that lets you travel forward to other universes is broken and won't take you back to your own? John finally settles into a universe that appears to have a lot of similarities to his own, except they don't have pinball or personal computers and the people who are his parents in his own universe never had children in this one. Against his better judgment, he creates a life for himself with people he cares about while he works towards his goal of learning enough physics to fix the transfer machine or to create one of his own so that he can return home. This was hard to put down & a great adventure yarn with bad guys and suspense. I loved that you never knew where you would land in the next universe - there was always the chance you could transfer inside a concrete sidewalk or lose part of a limb.
