Review: The Other Einstein

The Other Einstein The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was very interesting. Although I know who is Albert Einstein as a great theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity; I do not know much about his personal life. This book is about his first wife, Mileva Marić.

Mileva was a Serbian physicist born in 1875. She studied at the Zürich's Polytechnic where she met Albert Einstein. She was the second woman to finish a full program of study at the Department of Mathematics and Physics. Mileva was brilliant. She and Albert fell in love and had a daughter out of wedlock. They eventually married and had two sons.

There is much debate on Mileva's contribution to Einstein's early work; particularly on the theory of relativity. There is no tangible proof of this except hints that can be found in Mileva and Albert's correspondence to each other.

True or not, this book is a great read and an insight into the life of two great minds and how things don't always go the way you want in life.

Review: I See You

I See You I See You by Clare Mackintosh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was soooo twisted!!! I did not see the end coming! A "tour de force" by Clare Macintosh! This book should be on everyone summer read! I am a creature of habits and now I am spooked to know that what happened in this book could happen in real life. My advice... always be aware of your surroundings and read this book!

Review: The Little Prince

The Little Prince The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can read this book over and over again. One of the most beautiful books written in French. There are so many life lessons in this book and it is as relevant to me today as it was the first time I read it when I was a child.

Review: Being a Dog: Following the Dog Into a World of Smell

Being a Dog: Following the Dog Into a World of Smell Being a Dog: Following the Dog Into a World of Smell by Alexandra Horowitz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Great insight on the power of a dog's nose. After reading this book, I have been noticing more how my dogs are using their noses and I am quite impressed with their nasal talents. As an example, they both know when there is a bunny rabbit under the deck or under the shed. Overall the book was interesting, however, it was slow at times and sometimes repetitive.
