Reviewed in the United States on November 5, 2017
I ended up buying this book because my book club voted to read it. I was concerned about the negative reviews and the feminism mentioned. I just wondered while buying if it was a fascinating read, and worth a little propaganda to get through. It wasn't worth it for me. I just didn't wonder what the characters were up to when I put the book down. It's hard not to get riled up at men while reading this. I don't know if Mr. Einstein was just absent-minded and negligent in his relationship with his first wife, or if he truly was the cad portrayed. It's either "good for the author for exposing that jerk" or "how dare the author sully his reputation" but who really knows which it is? Not me.
There just wasn't any suspense or conflict until a little at the very end. It was mostly undercurrents of bias, which wasn't enough to hold my interest. The cover design is gorgeous, though.
