My review :

You might think that the book is as fun as it’s cover! But it’s honestly the opposite of fun. It’s super boring and exactly like a curriculum and I barely finish it. In the middle of the book, I just figured out that I hate philosophizing about Physics and Science. it’s just a waste of time. All that I want is to get to the point. But in general, the book is awesome. the cover and how they introduce the idea and make it like a story! And the information is pretty useful by the way. However, don’t overthink and always have a deep down faith in your religion. The book is so deep especially in the beginning and in the end, but you might feel bored in the middle exactly like me.


My rating on Goodreads :

⭐⭐

Quotes :

“You can’t experience being alive without realizing that you have to die”

“She decided that philosophy was not something you can learn; but perhaps you can learn to think philosophically”
