Read It: Light From Other Stars

January 16, 2021


I have to say that I was first attracted to the cover of Light From Other Stars by Erika Swyler before anything else. To draw me in at the bookstore, a good book (that I've never heard of before) must go through three tests in my mind: first, I'm drawn in by the cover art, then I process whether or not I like the title, and, lastly, I open the book to a random page to see if I enjoy the style of writing from the author. This book easily passed all three.

As I started reading though, it took me a little bit to get hooked in, but, once it got me, it sank those claws in deep. The more I read, the more I wanted to know, and, the more I knew, the more my mind was searching for answers, and, the more it was searching for answers, the more I knew that I couldn't figure this book out and I loved it!

This book is the furthest thing from a psychological thriller, but it had the same kinds of twists and turns that you would never had expected. Written from what seems to be two different times, though you're only ever told one specific time, this book deals with everything from family and loss to physics and space. It seems like a very broad range of topics, but it ends up taking you on an adventure of a lifetime where everything comes together beautifully in the end. It is truly one of my favourite books.
