Entertaining Possibilities

Richard Cox has written an exciting work of fiction melding the diverse perspectives of his characters, quantum physics, religion, romance, and conspiracy theory into an accelerating read. The science is woven into the book in a way that appeals to both science minded non-fiction readers and those who enjoy the fantasy of fiction. His characters are human, rich, and vivid allowing empathy for even the ones I loved to hate. I enjoyed the conversations of science and religion and found them to be as engaging as the plot itself. The last half of the book really speeds up, keeping the reader pushing towards the end to reveal the answers. The God Particle is a book about seeking answers. If you spend time pondering the deep questions, I recommend giving the God Particle a read. Also pick up Rift by Richard Cox. You'll dig it.

Fiction or Future Possibility?

The God Particle has all of the trappings of a very interesting story. It has intrigue, mystery, action, romance and, of course, science. As one who has an interest in Physics, I found the scientific content of the story fascinating as the author adeptly presented some fairly involved theories through conversation and introspection. While the story is a work of fiction, I believe the more important work contained on the pages within are of the possibilities that still exist in the universe, many of which we can yet only dream. It was both entertaining and enlightening.

Great Read

I picked this up a few weeks ago after reading and enjoying "Rift" by the same author and was extremely entertained. The scientific aspects of the plot were handled in ways that the non-scientific readers can understand it and the plot twists were dramatic and emotional enough to have impact on the reader. All in all this book was a fascinating summer read. I highly recommend it to any interested readers.

great read

I am not a big "sci-fi" reader... and thank goodness this is not "sci-fi". This book is a "hard" science/thriller, and you can tell Cox did a lot of research. With that said, I also have a difficult time understanding "hard" science(physics), but Cox does such a good job explaining the physics in this book and keeps you interested in the thrill aspect, and the character development. The first chapter sets the tone, and keeps it going throughout the entire novel. This book was fantastic and hard to put down. Dan Brown's novel Angels and Demons has similar topics... but Cox blows him away with his steller writing style and character development. Brown better watch out, Cox is up and coming and I can guarantee this book will be a best seller! The God Particle makes you ask questions, ponder who we are and where we are all going, and also keeps you wanting to read more of this awesome thriller! This is a must read for anyone! Looking forward to Cox's next novel.

A geeks perspective.

I was lucky enough to read this novel several months ago. I found that it perfectly blended a current mystery ( the search for higgs ) and a real world setting for a suspence novel. I love how the author uses science for a bases of his novel that is rooted in current theory and practice. The characters were believeable and engaging in their different careers and in the way that they were brought together to participate in the search for Higgs. This is the second novel of Richard Cox and i found it to be better than the first. ( The Rift was the first ) I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a mystery that is set in science and backed by fact. I would rank this one close to The Davinci Code in it's use of cold hard truth instead of rumor and superstion. This is a must read for anyone who enjoys science and the unexplained phenomenons of the universe!
