2018 Challenge - Book #29 - Einstein's Dreams

Today's review is for:

Einstein's Dreams
Author: Alan Lightman
Pages: 144

This little quick read is a fictional collection of Albert Einstein's Dreams.  (Hence - the title).   It is set in 1905 - in Switzerland (Bern) where Albert Einstein lived.  In these stories, Einstein envisions many possible worlds related to time and space.  One story - people never die.  Everyone lives forever, and the dream shows how this could be troublesome.  In another story - time is circular - you live the same moments over and over again.  And in between some of the stories is a dialog between Einstein and a friend of his as Einstein is working on his theory of relativity. 

This is a good book.  It was short, and entertaining, and easy to read.  The stories make you think, and you can definitely see Einstein's theories play out among them.

I recommend this one.  It only took me an afternoon to read.  A quick, fun book.
