    EBOOK Light from Other Stars 45 stars Why you may not like this book It's weird It is also a slow book that definitely has a built in sense of urgency but is in no rush to reveal it's mysteries It jumps between times The writing can also be very science heavy at points though I'm not vouching for the accuracy of the science If you are the kind of reader that finds themselves skipping over details to get to the meat of the plot this is probably not the book for you Also
