Quantum Leap is written in the voice of a teenage girl, and it resonates with me particularly as a message for young women in their teens. But it’s for women of all ages, really. And the amazing thing to me is that men, also of all ages, are interested.
A major appeal lies in the simplicity of the solution for personal control in one’s life. Who doesn’t long for that?
Another part of the book’s appeal is that it blurs the edges between magic and science, so it’s fun. At the outset, Rebecca has no scientific framework for what is happening. So it must be magic, right? What else could it be? I think we are attracted to magic because it’s bigger that we are, and it gives the user power. It provides a means for escaping from the humdrum, of solving the unsolvable.
