it was amazing
Read in January, 2009

Highly original historical mystery that takes readers (in a refreshingly readable way) to the bleak frontiers of human knowledge. The juxtaposition of the search for truth (both about the universe and the human mind) with human cruelty and ignorance is powerful, and the plot itself is full of surprises. Highly recommended.

Quotes Pat Liked

Philip Sington
“The railway was part scalpel, part movie camera, slicing the city open, parading its inner workings at fifty frames per second. It was on the S-Bahn that she felt least abandoned, as if the act of travelling turned back the clock, and brought her nearer to the future she had lost.”
Philip Sington, The Einstein Girl

“And then they would watch her closely as the dark, coagulated masses took form before her eyes, became flesh and bone, became gradually human. For all their show of reluctance, she had a sense that they enjoyed introducing her to these horrors, as seducers took pleasure in the corruption of innocence.”
Philip Sington, The Einstein Girl
