The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
It's always tricky when a different take on historical figures is novelized. I enjoyed this idea that Einstein's first wife was the brains behind many of his successful theories--she was a physicist after all. It's frustrating that we'll never know! I enjoyed the author's note at the end, although I still want to know some "truths" about Einstein in this novel. Was he a jerk? Did he physically abuse his wife? All in all, an engrossing read, even if I did want to run to all the source material and find out exactly what was fact and what was fiction.
