A like a lot the general concept of the book. There was moment for all. Sometimes at the beginning, it was bored because they talked about physics and all that. And I didn’t understand as well. There was moments when I was turning me crazy, and other moments when I was wondering about every plot of the book.
This history is a little confuse but it has an amazing plot that will make you doubt of everything.
