The Other Einstein: A Novel by Marie Benedict
 
Interesting, Informative, Insightful
Superficial Imagining of Brilliant Woman, Behind the Man

After this quick read, I am more intrigued by the people, particularly women, around Einstein. However much of the story focused on the imagined emotional responses, easily paralleled to the modern-day power struggle between men and women, rather than the historical context and importance of the shift in leading scientific thought. The protagonist's insights were mere quotes of concepts without any clarification of what the thinking was at the time and why/how her thoughts were new and exciting. Wouldn't recommend other than it is fast and easy. And would be fun to read while consuming the delightful pastries and coffee of the time.

Boy Spins Story

Beautifully poetic, horrifying story. It was like reading a young person's cursive air-writing from the jump, woven through the plain terror of good adults doing very bad things until they can fight toward the good in themselves. All the while the child works through very real trauma. I could not put this down and loved almost all of it.
