    1. So I see that encourages authors to review their own books, but that they encourage us to "consider posting a brief essay about your book's inspiration in the review space."Very well.The first sentence I ever wrote to describe The Reintegrators was: "An inter-universe coming-of-age story."I still like that phrase, because it captures what I think is the main theme of the novel: marrying a character's process of self-discovery with the external discovery of strange and fantastic realms.Even thou [...]

    2. Disclosure: I was sent a copy to review by the author.This book is hard to write a review for. I loved the novelty of the concept, and the writing was strong and compelling - I read it straight through, and then had to read it again to get a better grasp of the story. I'm a huge fan of the multiverse theory, and this is the first I've read of traveling between the dimensions. On the other hand, I had to read the book twice to really understand what was happening and in some ways I still don't. I [...]

    3. Following the adventures (multiple adventures as well!) was a blast. I'd describe this book as multiple multi-threaded consecutive/sequential adventures. Some adventures do overlap Love the concept and the characters in this book. Very much looking forward to the next books in this series. Lots of questions still remain, and it will be fun to experience them with Teddy as he learns more as well.

    4. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.This book, at its heart, is two things: a coming of age tale and a showcase of metanautics, which is a novel interpretation of travel between universes. In all coming of age tales, the youth in question must undergo distinctive changes during the course of the story. Because of this, Teddy starts out as a weak and fairly unlikable character. Like any typical teenager, he is socially awkward, has temper tantrums, swea [...]

    5. Imaginative, compelling, unique, fascinating, and with excellent characters, to boot. Put aside all of the other reviews, put aside the jacket text even, forget about the metaverse, and everything else this is supposed to be. Then stretch out your brain, and get ready for a really nice intellectual meal. This is a book to savor. A fantastic novel from a new author, I can only imagine what Mr. Weisser has in store for us in the future.

    6. Disclaimer: I received this book from a first-read giveaway.If you enjoy a delicate blend of thrillers and science fiction, definitely give this book a go! The Reintegrators has echos of The Matrix, Assassin's Creed, and Quantum Leap - quite enjoyable all around!

    7. It's a daunting task to write a book's first review. I hope others are writing too! Disclosure: author sent me a copy to review; I don't otherwise know him or have any connection to him in any way. I'm going to assume that this is meant as a Young Adult book, just from the general plot and tone and characters. We aren't told up front where this is going, whether there will be a great climactic ending. I'll tell you now, there isn't. It's a book about a young man finding himself against an unusu [...]

    8. This is a sci fi/fantasy book that I believe was written for young adults. It's a very well-written book with well-defined dimensional characters. It is a rather complex story and I didn't always understand it but that didn't detract from its story for me. I did occasionally get lost as to what dimension that Teddy, the main character was in, since it switched from chapter to chapter, and I usually had to figure it out by whom he was with.When we first meet Teddy he is a rather shy young man who [...]

    9. This was an interesting book and an enjoyable, quick read. The premise is that there is a multiverse which can be moved through by those with the proper training. I enjoyed the obvious thought the author put into the mechanics of moving between worlds in this way as well as exploring the dangers inherent in those mechanics. The action scenes are believable, and i like that the main character has some inherent flaws, although I expected something more in the way of resolution of these flaws.The n [...]

    10. This book was strange. It had a very interesting and unique concept, something a lot of books lack these days, but I feel like somewhere along the ride, something was muddled and lost. Part of that, I think, is because of the writing. While the story itself, structure, and the individual characters were all well developed, I simply could not get past the constant streams of cursing. It was like a brick wall to the story. I felt like it was a young adult book stuck in an adult book setting. Not t [...]

    11. Disclosure: I was sent a copy to review by the author.I thought the overall concept for the book was very interesting. I liked the idea of exploring the multiverse, but by the end of the book I was confused about how the science of metanautics is supposed to work. It seemed that there were a few rules but they weren't clearly explained and in some cases just ignored.In some ways the characters were very believable as teenagers. However, I was somewhat disturbed by the lack of reaction to the ext [...]

    12. Refreshing take on a popular theme with well thought out and layered characters. The book as a whole wasn't too far off the beaten track to be dry and forgettable, but it wasn't the greatest thing out there by far. The writing was clear while not overly simplistic. I did find a few minor mistakes but certainly nothing stopping me from wanting to turn the next page. The plot seemed to flow at a rather slow rate with more than enough information being provided, a few rather predictable situation a [...]

    13. This book follows a boy called Teddy as he starts a new school in the hope of finding out what happened to his dad a few years previously. Unknown to him, he was about to learn the secrets of integration, world hopping. He is able to go to the school with the help of a man named Ignatius who has his own agenda in doing this. The characters are very well written, Teddy' s 3 friends were good fun as well. I especially liked Charles, his whole attitude was good fun. After a rocky start as room mate [...]

    14. Thoroughly awesome! This is by far one of the best books that I've read this year. I feel like it's been a long time since I've read a new book that really had anything unexpected in it. The whole story was completely unpredictable, and wonderfully imaginative. This is a science fiction coming of age story and I've never read another similar to it. In order to give you a better feel for the story I would say that it is science fiction similar to the television shows; Fringe [weird science, alter [...]

    15. I was sent a copy of this book by the author to rate and review. Thank you so much for the book, Will! Since I enjoyed this book, I'll keep this review short and sweet (and spoiler free):The prose was written beautifully with a pace that kept me alert and involved in the story. The story itself was very creative. It was definitely a fun and fast read. Weisser creates a vibrant picture of the world(s) in the book. A must read for Si-Fi fans. I'll definitely look forward to reading anything else W [...]

    16. The Reintegrators by Will Weisser This book was a great read for me and reminded me of the books I used to read in my younger years before I got into Stephen King and the like. The reintegrators kept my attention through the whole book, unlike some sci fi novels that lose me when the wording gets too scientific. I liked the characters and really was pulled into the story. Even tho some of the plot had the potential of being confusing since there are parallel universes(I think that's what they we [...]

    17. Loved this book! It's very hard to find a book with an original idea anymore, but Mr. Weisser has done exactly that. Imagine that the multiverse theory is correct. Now, imagine that you are one of a very few that can manipulate the barrier between these worlds. Your body stays where you left it, but your mind is now inhabiting a body that is eerily similar to the one you just left, small differences aside. What if your conciousness could inhabit every you in every universe, and remember everythi [...]

    18. I was gifted a digital copy by the author in exchange for an honest review.From scanning the reviews posted earlier, I see that I'm in agreement on several points. The first being that this novel is founded on good ideas. Often times, interesting concepts like time travel or reality travel will pop up in a book but be wasted. That was not the case here. I also agree that I was a little put off by all the swearing, but it bothered me less as the book went on. Basically, I liked the book. I liked [...]

    19. I enjoyed the Reintegrators. The characters are a bit stereotypical for a high school drama, the hot girl, the lonesome hero, the nerd, the jock/bully but this is made up for by the setting and thought out plot. I really enjoyed the descriptions of the other parts of the metaverse, especially the "Tiles" area, where a self-building house gets out of control and covers a large swath of land in tile. Overall I'd definitely recommend this book to someone who wants an adventurous, thrilling read!

    20. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this ebook free from the author.I liked this book, however, it took me a while to get into it and I was left with some questions at the end. Over all I believe the author did a great job in describing the settings and reitergration seems fasinating.

    21. I read it and liked it. A few confusing spots, but that didn't stop me from staying up late a few nights to finish a chapter. Totally recommend it.
