Mr.Quark is a down-on-his-luck pot smuggler hiding out in the mountains of Columbia with his dog, High Pockets, and a small band of banditos led by the irascible José. Only months before, these three and their fearless associates were rolling millions in cash and high grade marijuana, eluding prosecution on “ridiculously false” drug and terrorism charges. But times have quickly grown lean, and to liven up their exile, José decides to mug a family of American tourists. Among the spoils are physics texts, which launch Mr. Quark on a sidesplitting, boisterous adventure north to California, where he confronts the owner of the books with his own theories on relativity, the nature of the universe and looking for the meaning of life in all the wrong places.

    " Enjoyable, quick read that ostensibly didn't require too much of the reader, but a minimal understanding of theoretical physics is helpful and makes it more entertaining "

    " odd, but in a good way "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ryan | 2/17/2014

    " This books starts quickly and delves into theoretical physics and drug running. It does not take itself too seriously, but at the same time hints at the "what does it all mean" question. "
