No I would not read again. But I did recommed it to friends who attend or work at MIT.
I like the story of the first woman student at MIT. The fact that she could not attend classes and was confind to a basement lab was facinating.
Yes, he is very good
way too long for that!
I wanted to like this book more than I did. I live in Boston and have many friends that have attended MIT. I felt that this book was written to become a movie. It was a bit too fantasitc and contrived. I did like the historic bits about Boston and Cambridge and respect the research that Matthew Pearl puts into his books. I liked the Poe Shadow bettet than this one. Not a bad read but just a bit too much drama for me.
No, not at this time.
I could not understand a word he said. He spoke very fast, I had to set the narration speed to the slowest setting. Even then I could not understand him. He mumbled and his voice for Sherlock was a disgrace to Sherlock Holmes fans.
Stopped listening within ten minutes
The writer suffers due to poor narration. This may have been an OK book, I will never know.
The background story of place and time.
Very easy to listen to. Nice narration style.
Tess is the leading character and she was interesting. I also liked her boyfriend that she ends up with at the end of the book. He had a strong character that served him well in the end.
This book was a good read, it had a sympathic lead character that you could really care about and lots of diverse people to enrich the story. It had just enough historical accuracy to make the story meaningful and enough fiction to tie it all together. Very entertaining.
