The Last Kind Words
Tom Piccirilli
Solar - Ian McEwan Michael Beard, an overweight and aging physicist who won the Nobel prize twenty years ago and hasn't stopped eating, drinking or cheating on all of his five wives since.

This changes when a freak accident leaves him in possession of a file full of brilliant ideas from a young post-grad, and claiming the work as his own, Beard sets out to build a new technology that will solve the world's energy crisis and stop climate change.

Enjoyable read but with a main character supposed to be so repulsive to the reader, i actually liked him, just for the way he would ignore situations put in his path and either retreat to his disgusting flat until it became too much even for him to stay there or to his many vices.
