Synopsis: The third in Corinne Maier and Anne Simon’s collection of graphic novels exploring the lives of some of the most influential figures in modern history lands its spotlight upon Albert Einstein, the German-born physicist who developed the theory of relativity. He is considered the most influential physicist of the twentieth century.
You’ve probably heard of him, but you’ve never seen him like this!
Review: Everyone knows Einstein, right? But despite a great name, and some fantastic researches, I did not really know the details of his life. Thanks to this comic, we can discover the life of this great man that we all know from his birth to his death, all with well-made drawings and a story with a touch of humor that I think was not necessarily easy to place.
I did not know much about this scientist, and myself working in sciences, it was interesting to discover his so atypical life, his ideas, his beautiful discoveries. But we also learn about his family life, and it was not necessarily simple on that side. We see the difficulties he had over the years, finally seeing that science was only what interested him, women also but not necessarily his, and we can see that his children were not very important to him. Sciences were actually his only reason for living.
In conclusion it was a great discovery. Something very different and despite the complicated history, I found that the author and the illustrator had done a nice job.
Oh, this sounds interesting. Like you, I know nothing about his life and I’ve always been curious. I also like that this in comic-form so I can imagine how fast it took you to read it. Great review.
yes it was nice like that
This is something I would enjoy reading. I know about hi discoveries and theories but little about his life.
Funny that you read this! Last class I took I had to do a powerpoint about him. 🙂
Glad you discovered something new and enjoyed it so much!
Sounds like a good read, I don’t know all that much about him so it would be worth learning more about!
Oh, this look so awesome!! And it’s in comic format; how great is that?? Thanks for the discovery 😀
I like stories where real heroes are humanized and trivial details about their lives is always good.
I am in the sciences too, though Einstein’s work is in a whole different field than my interests. Hearing about that bit on his feelings for his family is kind of sad, actually.
lol me too, I’m more chemistry but it’s interesting
How cool for a story about a historical figure to be told in this format.
