Summary:

"What secrets may have lurked in the shadows of Albert Einstein's fame? His first wife, Mileva ""Mitza" Maric was more than the devoted mother of their three children - she was also a brilliant physicist in her own right, and her contributions to the special theory of relativity have been hotly debated for more then a century. In 1896, the extraordinarily gifted Mileva is the only woman studying physics at an elite school in Zürich. There, she falls for charismatic fellow student Albert Einstein, who promises to treat her as an equal in both love and science. But as Albert's fame grows, so too does Mileva's worry that her light will be lost in her husband's shadow forever."



Way i am waiting.... 

I really enjoy historical fictions like this, where you can never be really sure how much is true and how much is completely fictional. 

I know that that is a very debatable and specific thing for a book, and many people hate if it authors are not very specific in keeping it real or making everything fictional, but i personally really enjoy books such as this. 

It really reminds me from the sound of the synopthis of "the paris Wife" which is a book about the first wife of Ernest Hemingway and i really, really enjoyed that book. Mostly because i had no idea how much of the story was real or not, but the writing was beautiful and the story told was very interesting and fantastic to read. 

So high hopes that this one will enchant me similarly. 

Also i have never read a book about Einstein. Which is a shame, because i do think he was a brilliant person and i think i remember that he was another dyslexic person which is always great to learn more about, being a dyslexic myself. 

I am also curious to see how the woman's perspective and struggles are being portrayed in this book.



What are you guys waiting on this Wednesday?

Have you heard about this book?
Any Einstein books to recommend?

Where do you stand on the Hstiroical fiction books that include real historical figures and their family lives? Love them? hate them? Have to know what is actually real and what is completely fictional? Or do you just care about the story and the writing and nothing else?


Let me know in the comments, lets chat!


Write more later....
