How did you find out about this book?

I received it at Book Expo America in 2016 in Chicago.

Why are you reading it now?

It was published this month, and I am slowly but surely going through all the books I brought back from BEA

First impressions?

This is really excellent. Great descriptions of the social context, of landscapes, the characters are so real.

Which character do you relate to so far?

I relate a lot to Mileva, yo her thirst of knowledge and learning.

Are you happy to continue?

Totally. This book is worth the hype it got at BEA. Plus the author sounded so interesting when I heard her there at a panel. The opposite of the hype around another book that disappointed me so much!

Where do you think the story will go? 

Looks like Mileva will have less and less access to the fun of learning and that she may remain in the shadow of her famous husband, even though she must have contributed a lot to what he discovered, thanks to her own input and her genius talents in maths.
