LOOKING AT A BEAUTIFUL SUMMER NIGHT SKY REMINDED ME OF THIS BOOK THIS IS A GREAT ESCAPE READThis was a 4 star read for meThis is my second book by Ms Swyler and it is really uite different I believe that The Book of Speculation was magical realism and this one is science fiction I think it might be important for readers to know that I do not read science fiction and some parts of this novel were just plain frustrating for me The believability factor was a problem for me at first but then I thought I would just sort of turn myself over to the book and just see where it would carry meWe are thrown into the future right at the beginning of the book as Nedda Papas is waking up on the spaceship Crawla to the sound of birdsong from her now long ago childhood She and her crewmates are on a several years journey to another planet where they will build a base and determine whether this may be a planet suitable for human life since earth is slowly dying The science part of this section and a lot of the book is what dragged for me and some of the descriptions were uite long It was in the frustrating scientific details that this book lost me a little I just wanted to get on with the story I however did learn and you should know it now because it will appear many times in the book that Entropy is the measure of randomness or disorder in a system wikepedia or as Nedda had learned from her father Is it about entropy He told me that s what the machine was for To control it To speed it up or to stop it It s heat loss energy loss but it s time too The setting for the dual timeline is 1986 in a small town around NASA s rocket and shuttle launching station Nedda Papes was lying on the top of her dad s car waiting to catch a glimpse of Halley s Comet We get to know Nedda very well her love of all things space related her obsession to someday be an astronaut The absolute horror as she watched on the TV at school The Challenger shuttle blow up with all of the astronaut s lives lost She is 11 years old and is brilliant in science but otherwise a typical pre adolescent She has a good friend Denny whose orange grove they like to hide in they also like to stop in Pete s backyard he collects old NASA euipment and just anything basically from all of the previous launches he used to work there and if something interesting was being thrown away Pete would probably bring it homeThere are lot of characters in this novel and I won t go through all of them they are flawed some likable some not but I found them believable You have also read a blurb about where some of the story is going but I think you will all be surprised I m not going to talk about the plot in fear of spoiling your enjoyment of the book This novel I believe is about exploration and loss fathers and daughters mothers and how they are sometimes seen through their daughter s eyes Betheen told her daughter Don t think for one second he s the only reason you re smart At times I wasn t sure where the many threads of this story were leading but it was a fun and entertaining ride I received an ARC of this novel from the author and publisher through NetGalley
