My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Engaging, believable and unique characters with great friendship chemistry. Amusing premise as a backdrop to a road trip. The footnotes were my favorite part – sardonic, informative, and clever. I also learned a lot of cool stuff thanks to Colin, the child prodigy and to the author’s research.
“But mothers lie. It’s in the job description” (p. 4).
“Paradoxically, he felt as if his getting dumped was the only thing happening on the entire dark and silent planet, and also as if it weren’t happening at all” (p. 39).
“Without Katherine and without the Theorem and without his hopes of mattering, he had very little. But he always had books” (p. 110).
