Mr g: A Novel About The Creation
Mr g: A Novel About The Creation by Alan Lightman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s like they say, you’ll never read Einstein’s Dreams by Alan Lightman for the first time again! Lightman (wikipedia) goes back to familiar ground – contextualizing the laws of the physical world – in a creation story that is certainly no more or less credible than any of the creation stories that are commonly in circulation. If you’re a fan of Lightman’s style of science embedded in fiction (which is in it’s way very distinct from science fiction), then you’ll like it (even if it’s not exactly as accessible as Einstein’s Dreams). If you’ve never read anything by Lightman before, start with Einstein’s Dreams.
