Lonely food developer Stella would like nothing better than to finally have a lab partner to help her create new synthetic products and share her passion for science. But her nation of Cochtonia has gone off the deep end. Fertility rates are dropping, and the autocratic male rulers have decided to turn to alchemy to produce offspring. Sir Isaac Newton has been resurrected from the dead to take a lead role in the impossible task, ordered by the autocracy. He is to work as a team to create a homunculus--a tiny person, made outside of a womb. Women won't be needed at all! Being celibate in his previous life, Newton has never indulged in romance, but procreation without females sounds crazy even to him. When Stella offers to help him fake the results to save his neck, he's more than willing. But is Newton the real thing or a genetically modified fake? As the pair collaborates, Stella becomes more and more uncertain. In proceeding with the deception, they find that chemistry isn't limited to the laboratory. In a world where love and romance are punishable by law, mutual attraction could mean execution for them both.… (más)

I read the second book in this series, Lost in Waste, a year or so ago and thought it had an interesting premise. I hoped for further interesting developments in this book. I had also hoped that the author’s writing had improved and was less heavy handed. Unfortunately this was not the case for either of my increasingly faint hopes.

To me the actions in Wrinkles in Spacetime read like a badly written description of a slapstick movie - the book came across as rather crude (in all meanings of the word) and if it was meant to be humorous, it missed its mark by a long shot.

I did struggle through to the end of the book because I received this book as an Early Reviewer. The writing and plot did not improve as I read further, and I could not find any redeeming qualities.

I read to about the 41% mark. I found nothing to keep me reading. ( )
