I agree with this. It is sci-fi so it probably won't work right now, but there is some theory (however twisted) that would make it possible. The same with fantasy. Even that should have some logic behind it. The best books are those that are well thought through. There is a backstory (that isn't told, but rather hinted at) that does explain everything that happens.
