Clever, thoughtful, worthy
5 August 2020 | by diedaily77See all my reviews

A playful, non-pedantic love story of sorts, with interesting and amusing nods to science, philosophy and history. Like the philosopher aristocrat of times past it imagines freely and makes constant inquiries. One is even kept guessing as to its genre, as it offers delightful nods to cosmology, technology, and even SF themes such as the Fermi paradox. At the same time it stays grounded in the romance of the present and past. Ultimately it made me feel enchanted and very lucky and glad not to be a reductionist.
