Teenagers?No
Adults?No

Comments: I did not understand half of this book. It was complex with math stuff. I can think of a few people who would really enjoy this book but I did not. It whipped around from time period to subplots in a manner that left me confused. But it was well written and detailed and complex and interesting in the parts I understood.
