"Few humans share Greene’s mastery of both the latest cosmological science and English prose." —The New York Times

Until the End of Time is Brian Greene's breathtaking new exploration of the cosmos and our quest to find meaning in the face of this vast expanse. Greene takes us on a journey from the big bang to the end of time, exploring how lasting structures formed, how life and mind emerged, and how we grapple with our existence through narrative, myth, religion, creative expression, science, the quest for truth, and a deep longing for the eternal. From particles to planets, consciousness to creativity, matter to meaning—Brian Greene allows us all to grasp and appreciate our fleeting but utterly exquisite moment in the cosmos.

Meh. So meh I might even downgrade to two stars (edit: I did). I mean there are some interesting things explained, but I don’t feel like Greene got anywhere close to the grand theory of physics and art he clearly wants to find. He’s just not an art guy, and that’s all I get from his attempts to explore it. There are many other books I would recommend reading about the topics he touches on, except maybe the physics. Greene knows how to explain physics. He doesn’t know how to explain the other disciplines explored here. So for now I would say, skip this book, read his other books, and read the books of the people he cites, who do a better job of explaining the ideas in their own areas of expertise.
