Book Review: The End of Everything (Astrophysically Speaking) by Katie Mack

I have never really pondered how our universe will end, when, and if. Instead, I have always been more interested in how everything came to be. But that has been silly of me, as the end is as revealing as the beginning. Now I, every now and then, wonder that there is no rule in place that the universe has to trot on. That everything could end just like that. And I find it weirdly solacing. Blip and all this will cease to be.

This is a beautiful book with funny footnotes (with references to Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) on all the possible ways our universe might end and what physics knows and speculates about it. But, at the same time, it tells so much about our existence, giving a perspective of why we are here. This is one of those books I want to revisit later. Those books you want to cherish all the words put down. Especially the odd thought that gravity might be leaking out of our universe. Does that mean there is another universe? And if there is, then what does that mean? And if there is, then is someone stealing our gravity? The last remark is more out of the writer in me than serious thought. It would be fun, though. I keep thinking about what kind of machine they had built and why do they need our gravity. 

That is just my brain creating stories. The book is light to read. It is well-written, funny, and informative. What is there not to like? Okay, maybe the subject is grim, but I rather know than not know that all this could be gone in a blip—what a wonderful thought.

Thank you for reading! Have a great day ❤
