      Interesting narrative made with poetry, questioning science and our understandings of the world. Not bad, but repetitive and overall not very touching. I'd give 3 stars if it was a little shorter.

      with great excitement i look forward to each new alan lightman book, hoping to recapture the unexpected charm, imagination, and near-brilliance of einstein's dreams. of the five books i have read of his since that dazzling first foray, none have come anywhere close in their overall effect. lightman is clearly very bright and fortunate enough to be gifted with an aptitude for both the sciences and the arts. his fiction is often quite creative, and it is obvious he finds great joy in writing it, b [...]

      A challenging narrative of poetic prose that melds science and imaginative philosophical whimsy. Its free verse metaphysical musing of an old mans dichotomous existential crisis.

    • Eddie says:

      A wonderful verse poem about life and death. How does one deal with life after a tragedy? The book is divided into 2 parts; questions with answers and questions without answers. How do we act and behave on this small piece of dirt in the universe. Ultimately uplifting. My first thoughts were of being and nothingness. But this small package is full of meditations on existence, written with exquisite language. Loved reading this.

      I suspected that it was written as poetry mostly to escape the requirements of paragraphs and sentences but Lightman uses the freedom well. The lines don't read smoothly but the thoughts and images do. It is beautiful and a page turner in the way science fiction and science magazines are - for directing the mind towards things that can only be described as "big," or really "very very big" while being mixed with just enough dirt, emotion, ocean, characters, chairs, meat, to qualify as literature, [...]

      "A dot in the roiling, / Convulsed by the waves, / I ask and find stillness in knowing: / This is the stuff of the water, / And this is the shape of the sky. / This is the measures of masses, / And this is the logic of air."Only read 18 of 99 pages, hence no rating. I think it has potential as it looks at a man's progress from hopelessness to science to more. Yet, I found myself rather uninterested. Since I read for enjoyment, I opted not to force it.

      I am an unabashed Lightman fan. This book is written more as poetic prose than a novel, and I have to admit I do not sit and ponder literature in this way. There are passages that are thought-provoking and link to science, but overall it was a quick read that I did not dissect, which I think is the intention of this novel.

      I read this for National Poetry Month, and you can read my review here. I loved it - its writing, its beauty, its story.
