Book Review for Stars and Waves by Roberto Maiolino


Laura is a student in Astronomy at the University of Cambridge. Her work on exoplanets – planets orbiting other stars – is largely unnoticed by the scientific community. However, it attracts the interest of a secluded elderly Russian astronomer, Professor Kasparov, on the basis of his own research thirty years ago. He tries to contact Laura and her supervisor, Julia, but dies in mysterious circumstances.

In the attempt to find out more about Kasparov’s old data, Laura and Julia travel across the globe. During their journey, science becomes entangled with poetry, while astronomy gets embroiled with mystery. They face a dark pattern of strange accidents and deaths. Their quest for clues gradually becomes a frantic pursuit through some of the most fascinating and deadly environments.

Will Laura and Julia uncover the truth? The whole truth? And… will they survive to tell the world?

My Review;

Just from the synopsis I was immediately drawn into this book. I don’t know much about astronomy so eventhough this is a fiction book I have learnt a lot and want to learn a lot more. If you want a book that grips you then this one is for you.

Thank you so much kaleidoscope tours for letting me take part in the blog tour for this book.
