Einstein's dreams by Alan Lightman

Einstein's dreams by Alan Lightman is an intriguing thought exercise as fiction. In vignettes the author describes Albert Einstein thinking about what reality would be like if Time moved in different ways. Much of this is quite intriguing however it doesn't work terribly well as a novel. There's no real plot line as such.

Its recommended if you're interested in the thought experiment. I probably wouldn't read more than one vignette at a time.

Is available through Abebooks.
