“Antiphony is a book so eloquent and brilliant that it requires time—that precious entity few seem to have saved for exploration of the arts—to explore this obvious treasure. It is related to the great works of literature—James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, Virginia Woolf, Solzhenitsyn, Dante Alighieri, Roberto Bolaño, Tolstoy, Proust, Kazantzakis, Kafka, Melville, and Conrad are a few that come to mind.” “Katsaropoulos’s grasp of physics is astonishing as is his ability to phrase theory in a manner comfortably decipherable. His deep entrenchment in literature and in music blossoms on the pages frequently. His grasp of the manifold variations of human relationships breathes of psychology breeding with philosophy. But most of all it is the serene beauty of his writing that mesmerizes and results in starting the book again once finished that proves this is a man of letters who has an enormous gift and future.”

“I enjoyed this book a lot. Antiphony is super smart but also accessible. It delvesdeeply into scientific theory as well as philosophy and some psychology but useslayperson language and felt really accessible to me.”“The writing style reminds me of Milan Kundera. I’m a huge fan of Kundera’s work… so this is a big compliment. I think Kundera has a really unique voice andstyle that I never see anywhere and Katsaropoulos has a similar quality that lentsome magic to the reading for me. Antiphony blends reality and non-reality in a fabulous way.”

“With the debate between supporters of evolution and creationism (recently highlighted by Bill Nye and Ken Ham), Antiphony is an intriguing timely tale. As readers observe the protagonist
s everyday life, we wonder whether Reveil’s revelation means he is losing his mind or finding a spiritual awakening that will ultimately lead him to the asylum or the Universe’s Final Unified Field Theory. Fans who prefer something offbeat will appreciate Chris Katsaropoulos’ profoundcharacter study of a physicist on the brink of discovery, insanity or both.”

—Midwest Book Review

I loved Theodore, wanted to sit down and have coffee with him and talk to him for hours. Going against the grain, especially if you didn’t mean to do it in the first place is a hard path to follow.”“The writing style was superb, and my head was spinning with fodder. Watching Theodore’s life crumble before his eyes, and his inability to cope (or perhaps ability to see more clearly for a different audience) was heart-breaking, maddening and incredible to read. The book was expertly written, made me think, and wasn’t just another piece of fiction. The events aren’t real, but the feltlike they could be.”

“I liked Theodore Reveil. I found the crisis of conscience that he was going through fascinating—God versus science, or God and science, as opposed to all of his previous beliefs about God having no place in science or in a theory of the Universe.”“I liked the wide range of influences and topics apparent in this book—classical music and music theory, string theory, poetry, literature, mythology, spiritualismand religion. The author took all of these and used them to weave a descriptive cloak around the characters and plot. The book was well paced and used numerous literary devices to great effect. Theodore’s… visions seemed to be expressed in a stream of consciousness manner, with thoughts and images coming out roughshod and disorganized, in a rapid, rambling fashion and a blurring together of ideas… They reminded me of the style of many passages in James Joyce’s Ulysses.

“I would recommend this book if you are interested in the science and God question. If you enjoy literary fiction, combining poetry and prose, that deals with deep philosophical questions about the Universe in which we exist, and indeed about existence itself, then you will surely enjoy this book.”
