Description

Best-selling author, superstar physicist, and cofounder of the World Science Festival Brian Greene (The Elegant Universe, The Fabric of the Cosmos) and an ensemble cast led by award-winning actor Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) perform this dramatic story tracing Albert Einstein's discovery of the general theory of relativity. Featuring an original score by composer Jeff Beal (House of Cards, Pollock), Einstein’s electrifying journey toward his greatest achievement is brought vividly to life.

The theatrical version of Light Falls was first performed at the World Science Festival in New York City.

Full list of narrators includes Graeme Malcolm.

An enjoyable deviation from standard Non-Fiction

Short but sweet! Strangely, the pace of story and the wealth of information delivered in that short time seem to gracefully accentuate the fact that Einstein himself packed much into a seemingly short life... Thanks

Accessible, entertaining, enlightening.

Recommended listening. Brian Greene is a great teacher and communicator and guides the listener to a fundamental understanding one of sciences greatest theories.

excellent and thought provoking short piece

This short biographical piece is a bit history plus a bit Brief History of Time in that it shows Einstein's personal development and tries to make his ideas and their implications accessible to the average person. Some examples you've probably heard before, but these are ideas that only benefit from another view. Very good. Will listen again sometime soon. And occasionally Greene has a nice poetic turn of phrase that I like. These are enormous ideas and he's trying to educate us entertainingly.

Entertaining and Informative

This short, dramatic reading of Brian Greene's Light Falls produced by Audible, Inc. describes the path that Einstein took to develop his general theory of relativity. Brian Greene narrates while Paul Rudd, Peter Ganim, Suzanne Toren, Edoardo Ballerini, Julian Elfer, Kevin Pariseau and Jonathan Davis do the voice acting for the involved characters. Paul Rudd plays the part of Einstein. It is based on the Theatrical production of the same name. It is a nonfiction account with accurate quotes from the involved people. If you like audiobooks, are fascinated by Einstein or general relativity, you'll enjoy it. Greene injects some humor at places and the presentation, while accurate and not dumbed down, is engaging and very enjoyable.

A pleasant discourse

It was a pleasure to listen through this and learn about Einstein and his work. I would appreciate if the subject of your next one is "Godel". Thank you

One of the best stories about Einstein

What did you love best about Light Falls?

The progression of the story is wonderful. You are constantly engaged and you wonder, "What will Einstein do next?" Thematically, how Einstein proved the scientific establishment wrong is what makes this story so amazing.

Any additional comments?

If you want to learn about Einstein and his scientific achievements, I urge you download this audiobook. If you want to learn about how a man was relentless and put in the hard work necessary to succeed, I DEFINITELY urge you to download this audiobook. You will enjoy it that much!

Every attempt to dramatize this book hurts it

There is something very off putting about a non fiction book being dramatized with actors voices, sfx , and wall to wall music. Also, the last 23 minutes is an interview with Paul Rudd and the author which basically is about how awesome the author is. Who needs it?
While there were some nice nuggets about Eisensteins theories, I'm pretty sure a Great Course or other book handles it just as well.
If you aren't into the material to begin with , no dramatization is going to help.

Understanding Einstein?

Chapter 2 was an opening for my understanding, just a peek into, how exceptional Einstein's mind worked. I believe he was truly gifted.
The story was told in such a way that I knew I was not meant to fully understand his theories. And I did realize Einstein's special thought processes were extrodinary when he related, using his education, to the Cosmos. His mind, his confidence and his enduring perseverance will be my everlasting rememberience of him as a genius.
But because of my lack of knowing very little about formal physics and the math, I do wonder why the moon's orbit has moved further away from earth as to its original closer position. I will investigate.
I fully enjoyed this audio performance.

Riveting storytelling

I absorbed this story in one sitting with unflagging interest. Brian Greene has put together a lucid narrative of Einstein's intellectual journey that makes sense of the physics for a lay person while conveying the excitement of Einstein's radical discoveries.

Very enjoyable science/history

This very short book was both fun and informative. I have read about Einstein before, but this book was especially entertaining and informative. I enjoyed the focus on gravity and the mix of science and history. Some very concrete examples made the science make sense to me, The music and readers made it especially fun to listen to. I learned a lot about Einsteins theories of gravity. I was left wanting a little more science, but what there was was good! This production was well done.
