Review: An Infinite Number of Parallel Universes focuses on a cast of four friends brought together by their weekly games of Dungeons & Dragons. As they go through different trials, their friendship is tested and grows stronger… culminating in the ever-classic road trip. At times, the story seemed to lack focus and fell into the trap of telling-not-showing. Overall, this is a sweet read with a detailed portrayal of friendship that touches upon various serious issues. Check it out if this sounds like your kind of book!
Recommendation: Borrow it someday.
