Cover: 5/5 (it's just so beautiful!!)
You might feel like wishing for the story to quicken its pace at times, but the second half is worth the slight drag in the middle.
Overall, a great rea
Normally I prefer Nonfiction over Fiction with an exception when it is science based or inspired. And this book is my first YA kind, at first the cover impressed me and after reading the description, i felt confident enough to try it and I'm glad i did it. It's very different from the conventional varieties of it. I could feel some pretty inspirations as well as pretty much enthusiasm from Carl Sagan, Antoine de saint Exupery, Elon Musk and many oblivious people.
The story went real nice that i felt confident enough about the well-being of the characters right from the beginning even though some odds are thrown by the author for the suspense. The background of the characters and events are so rich in experience and provided so much easiness in reading.
However I felt the experience was richer in the first half of the book. The kid, Alex Petrovski "recording the events in his ipod" style narration is very very nice to read and considerably affected by the kid's perspective of Innocent wisdom. The philosophical - inferential part deserves much appreciation referring the contexts of science as a sheer source of spirituality. Not much science in the plot, only the philosophical understandings from sentient perspective. So people with diverse interests can find it comfortable to read especially people who don't give a thing about science.
