In the 1980’s scientists were warning us about the consequences of man caused Global Warming and Climate Change. They warned us what could happened if we did not change our ways in the Future. Well, the FUTURE IS NOW. We are living the consequences of Global Warming.
We are breaking year after year the records for Warmer year ever recorded. Droughts are more common, which cause more extensive and devastating wildfires through the world. Storms are becoming more constant and causing more damage. Ice caps are melting which are causing more coastal floods.

4 out of 4 stars
Singularity by Jayme A. Oliveira Filho and Jayme S. Alencar is a novel about dedicating your life to the lives of others.
Despite having a trampoline in the backyard, Joseph takes Daisy to the park and helps her onto the trampoline that's stationed there. The trampoline launches Daisy into the air. It's when Daisy comes down from the air that the trampoline catches her. What if it wasn't a trampoline that she was falling into? What if it was a black hole? Where would it take her? Joseph spends his whole life trying to find out. Once Daisy is old enough, she does the same. Is there another world on the other side of the black hole? Will they live to see it?
It's hard to pinpoint which of the characters is the protagonist of the story. Just when I think Joseph is the protagonist, Daisy comes into the picture and steals the show. Alexander takes me by surprise; I did not see him coming Because I think each character's story is good enough to stand on its own, I think it would've been better if they were told respectively, as opposed to collectively. I love a good book series. I think this story would've made an incredible one.
Every chapter opens with an illustration, one of which depicts the direction in which the story is going. The illustrations are well drawn. It's just that I'm not used to seeing illustrations in novels. I wasn't expecting to encounter an illustration at any point, let alone at the beginning of every chapter. An illustration isn't the only thing that every chapter begins with. The authors make a point to start every chapter off by reflecting on the chapter prior. I think this is their way of making sure that we're following them. I can't say that I like this. I feel that this makes the story read too much like a story. I like it when a story gives the impression that it's being told in real time. When an author looks back, it breaks the illusion.
The authors have a way with similes; when they likened the expansion of the universe to that of a balloon being blown infinitely, I almost cried. The characters, too, are good with words. The way that Daisy credits Joseph for everything she goes on to accomplish is just beautiful. Every scene that featured Daisy and Joseph left me in awe. The only relationship that could touch the relationship that Daisy has with Joseph is the one that she has with Alexander. This is her son. The fact that he follows in her footsteps is really something. You'd think reading about him doing the very things that you just read about his mother doing would be boring, but it's not. It helps that there's a change in scenery. Without saying too much, let me just say that the scenery progresses as the story does.
All things considered, I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. While it should have been a book series, it's still good as a standalone. I'd recommend this book to those who like science as well as romance. Yes, there's romance. It's adorable. Aside from a few errors, the book is beautifully written. I can't say this enough.

3 out of 4 stars
Jayme A. Oliveira Filho and Jayme S. Alencar's Singularity is an idealistic novel that centers around the Earth's ability to sustain human life and climate change's threat to humanity. Joseph Silva, a brilliant astrophysicist, comes up with a theory on how other universes can be accessed by passing through the 'singularity' of a black hole. His idea places him at risk of being ostracized by the science community. But being an optimistic, persistent man, he holds on to his belief with the support of his daughter, Daisy, who grows up to be a scientist herself. Daisy dedicates her life to prove her father's theory and restore his honor in the scientific world.
The authors of Singularity are no doubt men of few words. While some books take time creating elaborate plots to enamor readers in anticipation of some tumultuous conflict and the suspense of its resolution, Singularity is devoid of these subtleties, as the authors delve right to the point. From the first page of the book, readers are already abreast of the 'deal.' Readers may appreciate this brevity, as the book only takes a few hours to read. However, this briefness may have affected detailed character development, extending to the romance side of the story that is less than half-fleshed.
Singularity is a technical book with many scientific terms that few readers might follow. The authors do try to explain some of these terms, but the fact remains that readers who are not 'science geeks' may still feel like they have been thrown into a strange world. However, the colorful images that the authors inserted in the book give it a bright outlook and provide a sweet balm for readers who are not scientifically inclined. There is also a bit of romance, albeit almost undeveloped.
This book is about family, love, values, and legacies. The sheer grit and perseverance with which Joseph Silva pursues his idea are inspiring. He also instills this in his daughter, creating a legacy of strength and resilience. Joseph said to Daisy, "Let no one tell you what you have to do. Believe in something and fight for it to the end." Readers may want to take a note out of Joseph's book, not only in the pursuit of dreams and ambitions but also in simple ideas at the core of who we are.
The central theme of this book revives a conversation that is very much real in today's world. It is the conversation of human survival on Earth, emphasizing the effects of humankind's activities on our planet. In the wake of this revived introspection, this book may come across as an uncanny premonition of the doom that awaits Earth if drastic steps are not taken to safeguard our biosphere. Thankfully, the book offers some hope for humanity.
