I'd be lying if I claimed to know what this book is about. I am tangentially interested in the origins and nature of the universe. But I don't understand the physics of it. I liked the questions she asks in the book and her sense of humor, but as the book gets deeper into theoretical physics, I am both lost and losing interest. Is the universe infinite or just really big? From my point of view if you start with a claim that you are looking at nature for your clues you have already accepted the universe if finite. Theism accepts the infinite. Levin is at times wrestling with such profound issues but one wonders, what difference does it make for her if their is nothing beyond a finite universe.
