With a name like Starling Lawrence as the writer I was expecting Epic and it was Epic However I wish Mr Lawrence would have stuck to the epic story and stayed away from the romance With few exceptions ie Sidney Sheldon Nicholas Sparks men can't write TRUE romance It always ends up graphically sexual Romance is what girls dream about; from Cinderella dresses and rescues to flower deliveries on anniversaries after spouses die and for some reason male authors have a difficult time translating this to the written page Having said that I really enjoyed the story about the science and wish there had been a little of that human drama and struggle imagined and written about I have a feeling that if Mr Lawrence hadn't tried so hard to tell the romance it would have come through on it's own I can only recommend this to brave readers that can stand to grimace through some parts andor skip large amounts of writing altogether If not for that this would probably have been a 3 star review
