From the best-selling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics comes a new audiobook about the mind-bending nature of the universe. What are time and space made of? Where does matter come from? And what exactly is reality? Scientist Carlo Rovelli has spent his whole life exploring these questions and pushing the boundaries of what we know. Here he explains how our image of the world has changed throughout centuries.

It's full of insights, though not always easy to perceive. It makes you eager to go deeper into the subject.

Aged 13, Theo Decker, son of a devoted mother and a reckless, largely absent father, survives an accident that otherwise tears his life apart. Alone and rudderless in New York, he is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. He is tormented by an unbearable longing for his mother, and down the years clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, strangely captivating painting that ultimately draws him into the criminal underworld.

The thick accent was very irritating.

Don't know a real person who's been living in the USA for so many years, went to school there and still preserved such a harsh accent. That was annoying. The book was frankly boring at times. Quit listening a couple of times and then got back to it again, though overall impression is quite good.

Was expecting something more exciting, since i like Iris' novels. This one is quite boring.
