Review: Sophie is an aspiring physicist and is being recognized as the next Albert Einstein. When she meets Jake at her first year at Yale it sets her on a course that she would have never envisioned for her life.
Jake and Sophie are obsessed with each other almost instantly. They attend all their classes together and plan their social life around each other. When asked her larger question of what she wanted to study it quickly changes to the theory of Love.
While they both complete college, Jake goes on to pursue his goals, Sophie becomes stuck, and Jake makes the toughest decision to help push her. This sets up the next 25 years of their lives.
This was definitely not your average love story, however it had a little too much science for my taste. You will find yourself rooting for Sophie as she explores her theories, and like Albert Einstein she will learn all time is relative.
