Adrift...
Adrift - Rob Boffard

Loved it! The suspense was great and there was non-stop action the entire ride! I literally held my breath through quite a bit of the book.

 

The boys, Corey and Malik, were my favorite characters out of all of them, besides the pilot, Captain Jana Volkova, I liked her a lot too, but the kids were seriously the stars of the show.

 

I only had an issue with one small part-

 

Roman turned sides way too easily. It seemed like one minute he was plotting their demise and the next he was helping to save them. I can see what the author was trying to show-that Corey being a child had a profound effect in his decision but geez, it just happened a little too quickly. 

 

(spoiler show)


All-in-all a nice thrilling space adventure and definitely worth reading!

 

*I received this ARC from the author and the Goodreads FirstReads program in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

The Thief and the Sword (Cleopatra in Space #2) - Mike Maihack
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

Awesome continuation of the series. This one picks up right where the last one left off and goes deeper into the prophecies mentioned in the first book. Same great artwork, dialogue style, and characters with a new, mysterious thief and a devious plot involving the charismatic Cleopatra.

Great adventure story that is funny, entertaining, and fast-paced. Just like the first one, this is a perfect read for young graphic novel fans or those just getting into graphic novels. 

I really enjoy all of the action sequences. They are set up in a similar way to fighting scenes in action movies with a great balance of fighting and finesse without being gory or graphic. 

Overall, a wonderful book and an awesome series. I just picked up the third book and am very excited to read it.

We haven't quite made it off planet, but the same thing keeps running through my mind:

Shut the Fuck Up and Calculate (Or Not): "The Nature of Space and Time" by Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose
The Nature of Space and Time - Stephen Hawking,Roger Penrose


"I have emphasized what I consider the two most remarkable features that I have learned in my research on space and time: (1) that gravity curls up space-time so that it has a beginning and an end; (2) that there is a deep connection between gravity and thermodynamics that arises because gravity itself determines the topology of the manifold on which it acts".

 

In “The Nature of Space and Time by Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose” by Stephen Hawking in the lecture "Quantum Cosmology"


"We should think of twistor space as the space in terms of which we should describe physics."

 

In “The Nature of Space and Time" by Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose by Roger Penrose in the lecture "The Twistor View of Spacetime"


"These lectures have shown very clearly the difference between Roger and me. He's a Platonist and a positivist. He's worried that Schrödinger's cat is in a quantum state, where it is held alive and held dead. He feels that can't correspond to reality. But that doesn't bother me. I don't demand that a theory correspond to reality because I don't know what it is. Reality is not a quality you can test with litmus pap. All I'm concerned with is that the theory should predict the results of measurements. Quantum theory does this very successfully. It predicts that the result of an observation is either that the cat is alive or that it is dead. It is like you can't be slightly pregnant: you either are or you aren't."

 

In “The Nature of Space and Time" by Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose by Stephen Hawking in the lecture "The Debate"


Can I write a review on such a book? Hawking and Penrose... It's staggering...I don't even know what day the mailman comes...After having re-read this oldie after Hawking's passing, I'd say it depends on where you are in the universe, whether you're on/near some sizeable object (of mass), its rotation, distance from other masses, or whether you live in my neck of the woods...


If you're into Physics, and Quantum Mechanics in particular, read on.
