The Calculating Stars
by Mary Robinette Kowal
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This novel starts with a horrifying disaster and ends with joy and hope. In the middle it zigzags in a fascinating way between anger and fear, which are overcome through grit and competence. I could tell you about the plot, but that’s easy information to find. This is how the book will make you feel, which is the most important thing. It’s an entertaining ride with a thoughtful side.
P.S. As a child, I loved watching Mr. Wizard. It was fun to see him play an important role in this book.
