The Unknowns

Nerdy. The more I read Gabriel Roth’s debut novel, The Unknowns, the more I liked it. Protagonist Eric Mueller excels at writing computer code, and has struggled in relationships. The novel is narrated by Eric, so we see from his point of view the challenge of trying to apply the orderliness of code to the messiness of relationships. Roth keeps the narrative witty and clever, while building underneath a warm story of love, with a key question for all of us: is it always better to know? Readers who lean on the nerdy side are those most likely to enjoy this promising debut. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Unknowns from
