Ugh -- a really annoying and self-righteous first-person narrator with a complete lack of introspection assisted by some dishonest narrative (i.e. being unclear/deceptive about the order in which the various events unfold). Throw in way too much Egyptology and a few too many not-very-well-explained themes (e.g. the many-worlds hypothesis) and you end up with this bloated book. Don't forget the complete lack of an ending -- the desperate hope for a clever resolution was the only thing that kept me reading for the final 100 pages, but no such luck. Thumbs-down, unfortunately, since the author is obviously a good writer and could do much, much better.
