I was fascinated by this story, even before I read the book. I didn't have a great understanding of the facts, and the author does a great job at laying out facts, and keeps the story line intact. To that point, I thought in many instances the author could have delved deeper into narratives, individual bios, etc. I also would have loved to have heard more on the other, more wilder explanations, and he does cover this briefly towards the end of the book. I just honestly think some of those would have been very interesting to hear about in-depth.
He has a pretty dry narrative style, almost a monotone at times.
I looked up the facts quite a bit while I was listening to the book, searching for images, clues, etc.
I really enjoyed the philosophical parts of this book, and wished it would have stuck to those story lines. Instead, it spins off it's axis near the end and it really struggled to keep my attention. I found his descriptions of aliens fascinating, and the math behind his story intriguing. It had me rethinking a lot as I listened.
Perhaps. I found the hard facts of the book intriguing, but his storytelling average at best.
It inspired me to think about the universe we live in and how the actual science of it all relates to my personal beliefs.
