    Yes, as if she was talking only to you. I love the format in which she states a single topic and then gives her take on it.

    The most fundamental questions about the origins of the universe and of life itself, once the province of philosophy, now occupy the territory where scientists, philosophers, and theologians meet—if only to disagree. In their new book, Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow present the most recent scientific thinking about the mysteries of the universe, in nontechnical language marked by both brilliance and simplicity.

    Brandi says: "Hawking succeeds in mind-blowing physics, real"
    "Interesting"

    What made the experience of listening to The Grand Design the most enjoyable?

    Discussing the Big Questions.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Stephen Hawking, although there really isn't a character.


    What does Steve West bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The best narrator I've heard so far! He combines an English accent that is easy and soothing for an American to listen to. He just has a pleasing voice that is hard to describe in words. It's like the saying


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole wierdness about quantum physics. It is hard to fathem the Universe acting this way.


    Any additional comments?

    This listen will not be to everyones liking because it gets a bit technical, although I think they do as good of a job as anyone else in trying to bring it down to laymans terms. Science buffs should enjoy this even if we also don't quite

    Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.
