I’ve been reading some advance copies of books digitally lately, and let me just say, I was not made for digital reading. It’s hard. That said, I was interested in reading Katie Mack’s The End of Everything (Astrophysically Speaking). I think this was not a great book to read digitally.
Mack provides readers with a quick introduction to cosmology before looking at some of the ways the universe could end, including being crunched like a soda can, reaching unbearable temperatures, and being ripped apart. While the end of the universe is by no means imminent, I can understand why it’s interesting to explore the possibilities.
Part of what was challenging about this book was that I was reading it in conjunction with another book. How do people do that? That makes it difficult to keep up with the science I’m reading, when I’m just reading it sporadically. But overall, it was an interesting read full of hypotheticals that make me curious to know more.
Since I’ve been trying to revamp my blog I have a question to pose to you, my readers. Would you like me to institute a simple rating system of “buy, borrow, or skip” in terms of my recommendations? Comment and let me know!
