A well written and well researched book about a most incredible humanitarian and scientist. Narration by Edward Hermann was fitting and articulate for this biography. It was an informative listen that had me shaking my head repeatedly at how Einstein was often misrepresented in history and how, the American government in the McCarthy Era berated such a great citizen. Well worth your time investment to give this one a listen, especially if you have an interest in the gentle man behind the genius.
I enjoyed the story and narration. I had not read Philip Roth before and found this book full of twists and turns that weaves an interesting tale.
Not only was this a wonderful story, the narration was fabulous. Her voice made the characters and the story come alive. I could not stop listening! probably one of my favorite "reads".
The characters in this audiobook fascinated and engaged me. I did not know quite what to expect after listening to the sound byte but I am glad I took a chance on this wonderful book. Ron McLarty created a travel log with this very likeable, simple and unusual character under some very unusual circumstances. Each encounter he has along the way developed a deeper understanding of Smithy. The complexity of what seems on the surface to be an "ordinary guy" is revealed in each surprising relationship he develops on his quest.I found myself wanting to know how this story ends and not wanting it to end at the same time.
