Overview

Einstein's Shutter by Vincent Yanez

Einstein's Shutter is a whirlwind journey into a decade of one man's life, in New York City, during what turns out to be one of the most horrific times in U.S. History. It's also a story about redemption, reincarnation and ultimately it is a story of the power of the human spirit in a man, and a city, finding the strength they need to rise again after the attack on 9/11.

Einstein's Shutter is also a comedy, a romance novel and ultimately a memoir of one life, amongst millions, in the greatest city in the world.

This version of Einstein's Shutter was revised in May of 2014. (Author's Note: Nothing in the book has been added or omitted, I merely incorporated the Epilogue into the book so that the book ended as I had originally intended.)

I loved this book! The writing style was refreshingly human, like my own thoughts and conversations in print. I chuckled, laughed out loud and pondered my own life choices and beliefs. This is a book I am going to buy in printed form so I can add it to my collection of "read it again every 5 years or so" books, because it is that good! I will be recommending this book to everyone I know who can read!!

Okay, I'll confess that I do know the author of this book...or I thought I did until I read this memoir. Though I knew most of the people and places and lived my life parallel to Vince's I had no idea of the breadth and depth of his spirit and soul. I had been putting off reading the book because I still remember 9/11; what I saw, where I was, who I was with and what it was like that day trying to get off the island and back to the safety of my home and husband in Jersey City. I remember the hours, days and weeks after 9/11 and I was afraid this book would bring up bad memories. Einstein's Shutter is thoughtfully written and the subject of 9/11 (though still painful) was addressed in the author's unique perspective and provides an integral part of the narrative. It's a beautiful story of love, loss, redemption and all of the subjects that make a great read. I was afraid I would be uncomfortable seeing a side of Vince that was so private but, I wasn't the least bit uncomfortable. I was so enthralled that read the whole book from cover to cover in one day. Please read this book if you feel like you are screwed up, alone, don't know what it all means or aren't worth love. Read this book if you want a laugh, a cry and just to know there is someone else out there who struggles to figure out why we are on this big old blue ball in the sky.

I can hardly believe I only paid 99 cents for this NookBook. It was an exceptionally good read. A coming of age book with buddhism and tales of sadness of desperation with some humor for good measure. I highly recommend it to anyone. I would have willingly paid more for this memoir. Thanks Vince for keeping me awake nights so I could read it to the end.

Enjoyed this book. Even though the couple in the book were not directly effected by 9/11 it shows how the time and place changed everyone in some way. It made us all a bit different than we were before 9/11.

Actually I am on page 624 of 684! I downloaded this book for free and have enjoyed every page. He does a great job of expressing his thoughts and feelings in a very believable, and many times, humorous manner. He's a talented writer and I can't help but like the guy! Vince, I just requested to join your FB page, but I hope I can send you message, because I have a HUGE question for you: It has to do with the love and devotion you had for Hanna, while at the same time, your heart was in an emotional relationship with Ann. Not that it's any of my business, but...I just don't get it! lol! Are you brave enough to field that question? Berni from Ohio.

I stumbled on this book, and I loved it. It is equal parts witty, touching, funny, sad and thoughtful. Mr. Yanez found a way to strike very universal chords in a story that was very specifically about his life. I got the feeling in reading that his politics and mine probably don't match, and I've never lived in the cities he lived in and wrote about. His experiences were very unique, and his life seems, to me at least, quite out of the ordinary. And yet, I found myself relating to an incredible amount of the story he told. This book is really great. It's well-written and it moves along quickly. It jumps back and forth in time, not following a linear path through events, but it isn't confusing. the style adds to the story rather than subtracting from it in any way. I'd highly recommend this book.

This book is a really wonderful larger than life story of soul searching, friendships, relationships... and it is a "true" story! I loved every minute of this book...could not put it down...There were sad moments and there were times I actually laughed out loud. Vincent is a very gifted writer, his style of writing is like you are listening to the thoughts as he is thinking or remembering them in his head...this book is a great read and I highly recommend it. Hope to see more by this author.

I was so sad when I reached the last page of this book. I have a book hangover, I'm so caught up with the people in this story.

The more I read the more disgusting it became - I tried to like it but there is just no way! Ultimately it is simply about a man with a huge ego plus mental issues. Don't waste any of your precious days on this earth reading this mixed up egotistical mess.
