Physics and astronomy made fun.
Hugh Dancy's use of accent, tone and inflection brings the characters to life
My girls (8 and 10) were captivated by this book. As soon as they get in the car they want me to play it and were always disapointed when we would stop and have to get out of teh car. It truely was a treat for them and they learned so much. I really enjoyed it too, it is a great little yarn. It was a great opportunity for me to share my love of physics with them.
The professors speach candence was too slow for me. I had to play the entire thing on 2x speed for it to be tolerable.
Great information overall with some solid broad brush coverage of the subject. I would have liked to have gotten more details in a number of places, but that would have made it too long.
You may not know much about astronomy, but Mike Brown pulls you into an the field and makes it easy to understand and weaves a great story that could not be made up. I throughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the stars, even if, like my wife, you think Pluto is a planet.
