Death by Black Hole, and Other Cosmic Quandaries
Written by: Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Read by: Dion Graham
This was an absolutely wonderful listen. I’m not sure why they didn’t get Dr Tyson to do the reading himself, he’s got a great voice. But Dion Graham actually sounds a lot like him, so at least there’s that. He was perfectly able to capture Dr Tyson’s personality and wit, which is one of the reasons I love his work so much. Some science writers are so dry that no matter how interesting the subject is, it’s almost impossible to get through it. He has all the facts, but he writes it with humour, and it’s wonderful. I’d have given it a 10/10, but there was the “obligatory” chapter on god, which I skipped, so it gets 9.5/10 instead. I’m honestly so tired of seeing religion in science stuff, it has no place there.
