My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This the kind of book which you either love or hate.
Certainly, if you watched the movie, you’ll love it, even if I haven’t done yet. All the romantics aspects would be some way exacerbated.
If you are a fan of memoir/biography books you will find a mixture of everything in this book, such as: their personal lives (yes!), mixed with some hints of physics (of course) and history of science (in a biography?).
In summary, even the idea of the author seems brilliant, she looses the main plot by trying to explain everything to us, poor readers.
If you really want to know more about Stephen Hawking, please read his book A Brief History of Time.
