Today's review is for:
Author: Alan Lightman
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.
Star:s 4 1/2
