Enjoyed the book. First half was very enjoyable. Like another reviewer said felt as if Stephen Hawking was holding your hand and taking you through this universe explaining things. Suddenly picked up speed and complexity. Had to re-read a lot to fully grasp things. Must be because I have been bad at physics. This book came to me at a weird time. I recently chanced upon a video "Why is it dark at night?"I am still finding it hard to cope with the different facts that science gave me 1. Most of the stars we see are already 'dead' 2. The "darkness" we see could be a time in life when there were no stars there - so no light - and so its dark. 3. But its not really dark - we just don't see the light. #MindBlown #SpineChilling #WhyAmIUsingHashtagsInGoodreads
Okay, I'm willing to concede that this may be a great book. And I'm sure it's much easier to read than professional writing about space science, the origins of the universe, etc. However, I still found it tough going. It inspired lots of abstract questions and pondering, but now, a few years later, I don't remember any of it. If I can ever make myself re-read it, maybe I'll revise my opinion, but for now it's only a tentative thumbs-up for those who already have a background in this subject matter.
