Even though Goodreads rated this bookfour stars out of five, I will give it five. It did take me a little bit to get into the story, I will admit. I had watched the movie and was expecting the two to besimilar; however, they were not. One must have a basic understanding of the periodic table and an appreciationfor technology in order to know whatthe characters talk about. This is also needed to understand the plot of the story. Thankfully, I have both. My appreciation for technology helped me enjoy this book even more.
