Sinopsis

"Henry has done a masterful job...This book is academic and heartfelt and tender and loving. It is worth every minute spent reading it." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

A brilliant physicist studying the nature of time embarks on a journey to prove that those we love are always connected to us, leading to surprising revelations in this fresh and unique love story.
Sophie Jones is a physics prodigy on track to unlock the secrets of the universe. But when she meets Jake Kristopher during their first week at Yale they instantly feel a deep connection, as if they've known each other before. Quickly, they become a couple. Slowly, their love lures Sophie away from school.
When a shocking development forces Sophie into a new reality, she returns to physics to make sense of her world. She grapples with life's big questions, including how to cope with unexpected change and loss. Inspired by her connection with Jake, Sophie throws...M.F


Reseñas Varias sobre este libro



I was so close to fall in love this incredibly smart story which is the fanciest mash up and sweet dance of logic, science, philosophy and romance!

I wish it named different and I wish it could be a little longer. You finish at one sit and you get drawn into the story as if your life depended on it. At one sit, just few hours later, you feel the emptiness in your heart, longing, craving more but you realize the book is already finished and the characters already grew on you so you feel betrayed for losing them at such a short notice!

Yes, I definitely to read more about Sophie and Jack, scientific explanations about why we’re falling for someone so deeply, physics of relationships, questioning patterns, irrelevant time mechanism! There are lots to take in!

Sophie is introverted scientific prodigy studies time and there’s high pressure on her shoulders because most of the people compare her with Einstein. Then her ordinary life changes in one day as she meets Jake during her freshman year at Yale.

Is it love first sight? But they were so sure they’d already known each other from a different place or different time zone. Their insta relationship frowns deeper, spending each day together.

Sophie wants to solve mysteries of life as an introverted, organized, skillful Jake wants to be wealthy and powerful man. And something happens... They go their separate ways. No drama, tantrums, angst...
Sophie throws herself at her work. She’s already a little quirky, nervous, talking to herself, building a special world by focusing the mysteries of the universe.

And decades later, Jake and Sophie meet again. One of them finds his happiness with hedge funds as the other one finds the academic success.

I wish they find each other sooner but finding yourself and your life purpose may take more time you expect.

Well written, surprising, unputdownable, philosophically romantic, original novel earns my four blazing stars!

Warning! This review will be based almost entirely on how Madeleine Henry’s new romance, The Love Proof, made me feel.

In short, it kicked me right in the tenderonies.

As someone celebrating a 10th wedding anniversary this year, it’s been a long time since I’ve experienced the swell of new love or the agony of heartbreak. This story about a physics prodigy, Sophie, and her soulmate, Jake, brought back the memory of those emotions so vividly it almost took my breath away. I reveled in the highs, and I wallowed in the lows.

That I could empathize with Sophie so much is a true testament to Henry’s writing abilities. I have absolutely nothing in common with a physics prodigy. In fact, when it comes to anything math or science related, I have what I to call The Dumb. Words good! Numbers bad! But love? It’s universal.

Primary criticisms of the novel seem to be that its short length and vast time jumps prevent a deep connection with Sophie’s love story, and that Jake isn’t worthy to be the other half of it. I see those points, but to them I point out that love is also blind. I don’t have Sophie’s physics abilities to prove to you why I related to her and her heart so much. You’ll just have to take my word for it that I did.

4.5 stars

The Love Proof is truly a gem of a book. It's a unique story and the fact it incorporated my least favorite subject in high school, physics, in a way that was actually interesting to me is nothing short of a miracle. We are in the early days of 2021 but I'm confident this book will be among my favorite reads of the year. For what it's worth, I don't give out 5 star ratings all that often.

It's fair to say Sophie Jones is a genius, and now that she is enrolled as a student at Yale, the physics department is thrilled because they believe she has the potential to unlock some of the mysteries of the universe. However, after she meets fellow student, Jake Kristopher, they both realize they have a deep connection. Soon they are spending every free moment together. And for Sophie, being in love means there's not as much motivation to find answers to the long asked questions in the world of physics.

Feel free to read the publisher synopsis if you want more details of the plot. Personally, I had an incredible reading experience because I didn't know much about the story ahead of time and so I got to watch everything unfold naturally rather than having a heads up. And my desire for other readers to discover this book for themselves is why I really don't want to get into specifics about all of the things I loved about the story and the characters. I will say the writing is smart and life's burning questions about love and time and their relation to physics were presented in a way that even little old me could understand.

Take a chance on this one. I'm not sure if the material will hit every reader with the same intensity as it did for me, but judging by many of the other early , I'm certainly not the only one who thought this was a powerful story. Let Sophie and Jake into your life, and see what happens.

An unforgettable read! I can't help thinking about it afterwards...

How one really bright girl learned her BF's skeleton and taught him facts about universe in bed.
No, I'm kidding. This is a moving, light-fingered love story. Love on steroids and physics and personal challenges.

Basically, I think it's all her mom's fault. Really. It looks so sweet and nice that mom didn't ever put pressure on Sophie to succeed and do well in science and apply herself to brain work instead of dedicating space and resources to her emotional wellbeing. Still, how well did it work?

Jack was in love with Sophie but not the gentle girl with a sea of feelings but more with her brain, her intellect, her capability of doing great things. Instead he got a bait-and-switch of sorts when she shut down her cerebral endeavours and went all gooey on him due to all the first l0ve experience. Throw in his parents' love background and his extreme dependence on what other people thought and whether they found Sophie impressive and we've got a recipe for disaster.

So, did they waste their lives or what? For one thing, Sophie... didn't she? For another, Jack... what the hell? Basically, they didn't need to sacrifice their loves. What they needed was to set some boundaries, do some emotional maturing and have fun, both scientifically and emotionally. This is so very screwed up... Even if the time concept means that they were together all the time...

Were they? Weren't they? If they were, they still were robbed of the new emotions and situations, relieving the old ones for all of eternity. If they weren't, who cares about anything at all or that from the viewing point encompassing eternity. Who knows?

PS. A story of how we throw our lives away no matter what we do or don't. What's left afterwards is shambles and it crumbles.

Q:
In one of her thousands of attempts to prove block theory, she’d tried in vain to remove time as a variable from a dozen equations of motion. That would prove it didn’t matter when events occurred. There was no absolute flow of time. All moments were now—the Fourier transformation. Sophie remembered it from her final problem set freshman year. This operation took equations from the time domain and mapped them onto the frequency domain. It changed the unit from time in seconds to, for example, hertz. Even when she’d reread the problem set years ago, she hadn’t understood what it could be. But this technique was the one. This was the piece she’d hunted for almost a decade. The Fourier transformation would convert all of her functions of time into frequencies and thereby remove the time variable completely. (c)favorites featured65 s Danielle978 570

Note: I received a free copy of this book. In exchange here is my honest review:

I started and stopped, started over and stopped, then finally forced myself to finish reading this.
