    This review originally appeared on my blog at I would love for you to be part of the community Light surpassed all of my expectations I anticipated a story of love lost and friendships made, but it ended up being so muchthan that, with a plot that moves and changes, yet remains based on simple ideas, which are written in an interesting and beautiful style It is always good to discover something different Light is the story of a man in the eve This review originally appeared on my blog at I would love for you to be part of the community Light surpassed all of my expectations I anticipated a story of love lost and friendships made, but it ended up being so muchthan that, with a plot that moves and changes, yet remains based on simple ideas, which are written in an interesting and beautiful style It is always good to discover something different Light is the story of a man in the evening of his life who stumbles upon a younger man in a pub He stands out because he is reading a book on physics Yet, once they start talking, the young man M relates a story of heartbreak at the hands of a woman who disappeared and whom he is attempting to trace M opens up immediately to a stranger There is desperation in him, but there is also a connection between him and the narrator the mutual understanding in the loss of a woman many years before This chance meeting stays with the protagonist, whose sense of fraternity with the young man leads him to make his own attempts to solve the mystery of the missing woman It also forces him to confront his memories, taking him through post war Poland and his years as a youth There is a vicariousness to the quest as if he, perhaps, will finally be able to relinquish the memory and hurt of Angelina which plagues him like disease if M can find Hanna At seventy, he says he still felt like he had a lot of life to live, but it seemslike he was looking for a story that would restore his faith in love Light is a reminder of life as a series of chain reactions, that love is transformative, and that it has the potential to feed on lovers until nothing remains The course of our lives and our very identities have the potential to be defined by a loved one s presence or absence What is the relation between physics and love The narrator, in his loneliness and old age, examines M s situation, together with his memories, as if performing some kind of scientific investigation, examination, experiment On one hand, there is a certainty attached to the scientific a formula that makes determination of a conclusion easy on the other, love and physics may have something in common that our answers may change depending on the questions we ask in the beginning and that, like everything else in the world, love is not immune from creation, alteration, annihilation
