Such a little book but it packs such a wallop!
For its size, 109 pages (including drawings), it was easily read in one train trip to work (just under 60 mins) but… you don’t actually want to read it in such a little time. This is one of those works where you’d stop right in the middle of the page to let your mind wander, to ponder in wonder at what the author is saying in such simplicity of language. But is it really simple? It is astonishing just how complex the ideas were behind it.
It is a story which traverses the universe yet explores humanity being told from such childlike perspective to “simplify” the language but still contained multi-layered ideas. This is one of those books which will mean something different each time you read it. I think this will have to join A Christmas Carol for annual reads 😉
Utterly wonderful! Totally recommended to absolutely everybody!
