“The ability to keep a secret was an Archer family trait.”

Cadence Archer arrives on Harvard’s campus desperate to understand why her brother, Eric, a genius who developed paranoid schizophrenia took his own life there the year before. Losing Eric has left a black hole in Cady’s life, and while her decision to follow in her brother’s footsteps threatens to break her family apart, she is haunted by questions of what she might have missed. And there’s only one place to find answers.

As Cady struggles under the enormous pressure at Harvard, she investigates her brother’s final year, armed only with a blue notebook of Eric’s cryptic scribblings. She knew he had been struggling with paranoia, delusions, and illusory enemies—but what tipped him over the edge? With her suspicions mounting, Cady herself begins to hear voices, seemingly belonging to three ghosts who walked the university’s hallowed halls—or huddled in its slave quarters. Among them is a person whose name has been buried for centuries, and another whose name mankind will never forget.

Does she share Eric’s illness, or is she tapping into something else? Cady doesn’t know how or why these ghosts are contacting her, but as she is drawn deeper into their worlds, she believes they’re moving her closer to the truth about Eric, even as keeping them secret isolates her further. Will listening to these voices lead her to the one voice she craves—her brother’s—or will she follow them down a path to her own destruction?

A Harvard freshman becomes obsessed with her schizophrenic brother’s suicide. Then she starts hearing voices.

REVIEW: Unlocking the Universe by Stephen Hawking, Lucy Hawking

OVERALL RATING : 5/5

Genre : Non-Fiction, Science

“..We can Boldly go where no one has gone before. Who knows what we will find and who we will meet?”

What would it have been like to walk the lava-filled earth four and a half billion years ago?

Or take your first step on the surface of the moon?

And what would you do if robots took over the world?

In their series of novels, George’s Secret Key to the Universe, Lucy and Stephen Hawking imagined what great adventures one boy might have if he travelled through space.

But the books were based on real-life facts – and together Lucy and Stephen collected an incredible wealth of information about everything from life on Mars to the secrets of black holes.

For the first time this non-fiction content has been collected into one astonishing volume, with brand new content for 2020, including facts about genetics, conspiracy theories and climate change.

Beautifully illustrated and absolutely bursting with amazing facts and figures, this is the perfect guide to everything you’ve ever wanted to know about our world and beyond.
