"The multiverse exists because every choice we make creates a fork in the road, which leads into a parallel world." Though many sf stories have taken off from Heisenberg's voodoo physics, this has got to be the baldest in pushing the conceit that the universe is based on human consciousness. There are lesser absurdities and plot flaws as well, but just enough puzzles, character depth, and action to keep most readers aboard, I suspect. The idea of being able to see a panorama of possible life outcomes based on personal choices as well as outside events is even more intriguing than the time travel do-over theme. Maybe some young writer-to-be will read this (or wait for the movie?) and be inspired to do it more credibly.
