it was amazing

Great book. I think this story should be made into a movie. Even though this is a fictional account, it very well could have happened. The author does an excellent job of portraying Mileva, Einstein's first wife and the possibility that the nobel prize that Albert got should have been shared. Plagiarism is rife in academics and colleagues go to great lengths to ensure they get the fame and no one else, even if the other person is the spouse. It's a sad story but there is strength in Mileva's character. Excellent book, read it and if you know someone in the movie business or if you are in the movie business turn this book into a movie so it reaches a wider audience.

43.09% "the author does an excellent job of depicting what Mileva might have been going through. Though this is a work of fiction, this perspective is totally plausible. The fact that a woman gives up her career for her husband's is not too far fetched...."
