HOLY MOLY!! Wow wow wow. This year has been filled with good books, and this is definitely gonna be somewhere on top. 📖
Everything is about choices. Every time there is an option new universes open. So what happens when you try to reach the same goal a hundred different ways?
This was a journey into the lives that could be, whether Jason wanted them or not.

Mehso-so

This feels like two separate books squished together. It starts with a primer about the universe that explains the problem of dark matter, then goes on what feels like a tangent to go in depth about asteroid impacts and the consequences, then it goes back to dark matter -- no dinosaurs so far and we're over 80% of the way through -- and then it finally very briefly ties in the dinosaurs.

It's not badly explained, but it's a bait-and-switch.

shanaqui I wasn't in it for “majority dark matter, one section of one chapter about the impact of dark matter on the dinosaurs“, so I'm cranky about it. I didn't expect a full book about dinosaurs, obviously, and knew it would be much more about physics... but I think if the book had been called “The Dark Matter Disk“ or something more appropriate, and the in-depth primer about asteroid impacts had been linked in more closely, it would've been better. 12mo

I'm within 50 pages of the end and I'm still waiting for any connection, any connection at all, between dark matter and the extinction of the dinosaurs...

rwmg You mean alliteration isn't enough? Sheeesh 🙃😉 13mo

Chapter 12 (about halfway through) and we're FINALLY onto the dinosaurs.

Despite the enticing title, it's at least 50% pop-sci 101. Which is not a bad thing, and Randall explains pretty well... but it's not something I *need*, so I've been dragging my feet about reading.

I've been wondering about this book for so long. It's time to give it a try! Despite the promise of dinosaurs in the title, it's mostly physics, so I might end up having a crisis of faith in my own existence (which is what physics normally does to me), but let's see...

Well, I've been meaning to read this for ages, for here is a book that combines my two intense interests: astrophysics and dinosaurs. And that doesn't happen everyday, let me tell you. 😂

At 250 pages in, I'm quite pleased with my reading experience so far. Not just surface briefing, and the book is long enough that the writer has space to scope stuff out. Not the most eloquent writer, but interesting on the science-front.
