Great book. Don't like the ending, myself...but I still have to think about it some more. What I really like is that she pushes the theory straight to the existential precipice and then goes right over. It reminds me of that old movie "The Black Hole" in which you hear the mad genius Dr. Reinhardt fervently shouting:

"In, through, and beyond!"

Can she cross that divide? I can't say yet. She's smart enough. The question is, is she mad enough?
