Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Packed with ideas . . . There is an echo of philosopher Henry David Thoreau in Greene’s account of lying out at night, enraptured by the aurora borealis. And essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson’s declaration that the “sublime laws play indifferently through atoms and galaxies” could almost be this book’s epigraph. Such qualities lift this work above many accounts of the cosmic story. Philip Ball, Nature
[Greene] weaves a rich tapestry of theories and perspectives as he navigates space and time . . . Of course, Until the End of Time can’t provide all the answers. But you would be hard-pressed to find another book that seeks to do so with the same clarity and meaning. Gege Li, New Scientist
Accessible and illuminating . . . Curious readers . . . will be richly rewarded by [Greene's] fascinating exploration. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Engaging . . . An insightful history of everything that simplifies its complex subject as much as possible but no further. Kirkus
“There’s tremendous joy in witnessing a brilliant and curious mind wrestle with such profound issues. [Greene] takes readers on a remarkable journey. John Keogh, Booklist
Ambitious and utterly readable . . . [Greene] weaves personal stories, scientific ideas, concepts and facts into a delightful tapestry . . . What is remarkable about Mr. Greene’s book is how he has delved into deep questions that not only have no simple answers but may never be settled at all. Priyamvada Natarajan, The Wall Street Journal
A splendid and invigorating read . . . Across three hundred pages, he fans out the fabric of our present understanding, deftly untangling then interweaving the science of everything from black holes to quanta to DNA, tracing how matter made mind made imagination, probing the pull of eternity and storytelling and the sublime. Maria Popova, Brain Pickings
Until the End of Time is encyclopedic in its ambition and its erudition, often heartbreaking . . . A love letter to the ephemeral cosmic moment when everything is possible. Dennis Overbye, The New York Times Book Review 
“Our knowledge of our impermanence, Mr. Greene stresses, might just be what lures us to search for the eternal.” Wall Street Journal
“There’s tremendous joy in witnessing a brilliant and curious mind wrestle with such profound issues. He takes readers on a remarkable journey.” Booklist
