A cursed book. A missing professor. Some nefarious men in gray suits. And a dreamworld called the Troposphere? Ariel Manto has a fascination with nineteenth-century scientists—especially Thomas Lumas and The End of Mr. Y, a book no one alive has read. When she mysteriously uncovers a copy at a used bookstore, Ariel is launched into an adventure of science and faith, consciousness and death, space and time, and everything in between. Seeking answers, Ariel follows in Mr. Y’s footsteps: She swallows a tincture, stares into a black dot, and is transported into the Troposphere—a wonderland where she can travel through time and space using the thoughts of others. There she begins to understand all the mysteries surrounding the book, herself, and the universe. Or is it all just a hallucination? With The End of Mr. Y, Scarlett Thomas brings us another fast-paced mix of popular culture, love, mystery, and irresistible philosophical adventure.

Never has a book divided my friends so much. Luckily I love this kind of indulgent writing; indulgent not in the verbose way but filled with musings that we often ask ourselves in those awkward lulls in between the battles of this rat race. It was just so much fun to read! It kind of reminded me ...

yeah it was alright, got boring and repetitive after a while.

3.0 Review: The End of Mr Y by Scarlett Thomas
Some very interesting concepts, ideas and thoughts are explored throughout The End of Mr Y and generally I found it to be an interesting and entertaining read ....

When Ariel Manto, a PhD student working on research on though experiments comes across a book called 'The End of Mr. Y', a book she thought she would never find, a book so rare it is almost only known as a legend, on a second-hand book shop, Ariel has no idea how much her life will change because of...
