Gray, in her own logical way, unfolded ancient theories, and outlined plausible outcomes to those ancient predictions. She postulated a plausible answer to the question of the age: How did the ancients get the knowledge to build the pyramids? Even though this is fiction, readers will learn about the way scientists use numbers, as in the mathematics of the pyramids, and the books of the Nine Unknown Men. The fact that Gray didn’t fabricate the scientific references made this book an even better read than if it was science fiction. From another civilization at another time the ancient Mayans predicted that the end of the our world nears daily. Were they right? Is this even a possibility?
The prologue and epilogue book-ended The Everything Theory with men, dressed in animal skins, looking at pictures in a cave. Curiously, the main characters in the prologue and epilogue had very similar names to the protagonist in the body of the tale, yet clearly the Lukes were not from the same time. Thus, the Everything Theory mystery began and ended.
Besides the ordinary human bad guys, the primary culprit in this story was a wayward planet named Eris. As it turned out, Eris is a real planet larger and farther out than Pluto, and Google has hundreds of pictures of it. As an educator, I recommend it as an important literature book teachers can use to integrate science and language arts for the new Common Core Standards. You won't want to miss this book. Read if before Dec. 21!!!
