Einstein's Dreams - Alan Lightman I think I started this book almost a week ago, thinking it was going to be a lunchtime read for me, a couple of days lunches at the most. And then I started reading it and I would stop every few pages and look around. I read it aloud to my husband, my best friend, to myself. If this book belonged to me, it would be the second (ONLY THE SECOND BOOK EVER) that I would have highlighted passages in. It was thought-provoking, it was moving, and it was sophisticatedly simple to read, because the prose was fluid and the ideas were universal and easy to identify with. But at the same time, the theories and ideas were deeper than they appeared at first read, and I would go back and review and marvel. Very glad to have taken my time with this book and eagerly looking forward to reading something else from Lightman. Maybe its time for me to get back on a philosophical book kick. :)
