Reviews for Dinner with the Friedmanns
Jillian A.K chapter 1 . 12/4/2011
I think Luke is absolutely right to not share Lily's vision with teh Friedmans. After all, if they are expecting him to grow up and major in physics and solve string theory, he may feel resentful and like he's been deprived of free will, and of the feeling of exploring the scientific frontier, having only his own hopes and belief and self-confidence to propell him to solve string theory. If it's a forgone conclusion, it takes out all the adventure. So to speak.

Interesting story about Lily, chidbirth and babies. I'm thinking one of the options in childbirth is an injection that numbs from the waist down, so Lily would be awake and participating in the birth. Good decision on Lily's part not to reveal her vision for the Friedman's baby. Preknowledge of the outcome could influence the child's developmental exposure to many different schools of thought and who knows where the inspiration for the string theory breakthrough might come from? (Like sitting under an apple tree a la Newton.)
