George's Secret Key to the Universe

Unabridged Audiobook

Narrated By: Hugh Dancy

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: October 2007

Duration: 6 hours 0 minutes


Stephen Hawking, author of the multi-million copy bestselling A Brief History of Time, and his daughter Lucy explain the universe to readers of all ages. George's parents, who have always been wary of technology, warn him about their new neighbors: Eric is a scientist and his daughter, Annie, seems to be following in his footsteps.

But when George befriends them and Cosmos, their super-computer, he finds himself on a wildly fun adventure, while learning about physics, time, and the universe. With Cosmos's help, he can travel to other planets and a black hole. But what would happen if the wrong people got their hands on Cosmos? George, Annie, and Eric aren't about to find out, and what ensues is a funny adventure that clearly explains the mysteries of science. Garry Parsons' energetic illustrations add humor and interest, and his scientific drawings add clarity; there are also eight 4-page full-color inserts of scientific photos.

    I love the book

    I found a recommendation for this book on And since we were preparing for a 16 hour journey to our hometown, I decided to go ahead and try it. It turned out to be one of my best purchases ever. My sons (aged 11 and 9) love books and science and were so enthralled from the beginning to the end of the book. I even found my husband, who usually is more focused on driving, chuckling and asking me to rewind at times to hear some portions again. All in all, the book made our trip appear much shorter than it actually was.
