sea of tranquility by emily st. john mandel

What I love most about Mandel’s novels, besides the intricate timelines and wonderful characters, is the surreal way that all the stories share so many connections, themes, meanings, and characters without often directly referencing each other, rewarding devoted readers with a rich world of extra insight.

Both the sci-fi elements and the scientist characters are really fun and involving in this carl sagan book adaptation - but on the other hand the love interest is really annoying and the movie should’ve been 30 minutes shorter.
