Book Review and Giveaway: How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky by Lydia Netzer

I am all for interesting and absurd but "How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky" was not my cup of tea. I don't think this was a bad novel. I am sure many people think it is brilliant. I just found myself bored a lot. This story is basically about two soul mates and the romance that keeps them together. There were many references to physics and astronomy especially with the many interesting and quirky characters. I didn't find myself getting hooked on this story at all. I felt fairly bored because I couldn't find anything to connect too.

This novel grabs the reader at the very beginning but as the reader dives into the story, they will slowly get lost. The main plot is about Irene and George. Irene and George both share a love of astronomy and science. Without them knowing, Irene and George were raised to be each other's soul-mates. The story began to trail off and there were too many side plots to stay hooked. The story would slow down and I just wasn't interested anymore. I wanted to quit reading so many times. There were a few times that the story was too silly to even comprehend why I was still wasting my time on it.

"How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky" is all about a love story. I really think this story could have been a whole lot better. I think there was an interesting concept to the story like how parents could raise up their children to fall in love with each other, but the story didn't really stick with that concept. Bernice and Sally were best friends and they wanted their kids to fall in love with each other but in order for this to happen, they have to separate the kids at the age of three so that they could find their way back to each other. I was really interested in finding out how this concept may work but it didn't rally get to that point for me. I do have to say that if any one is looking for some science nerd fiction, this is probably the book for you.
