I did not care for this book at all. I persisted reading in the hopes it would get better, but that never happened. It's not that it was poorly written, it wasn't, i just found the idea unoriginal and pretentious. I don't think there was enough of a storyline to keep my interest, it was very simple and left alot to be desired.

A one-time hero of my youth, Evariste Galois was a brilliant young French mathematician, who died tragically in a duel before his genius was recognised. Petsinis tells his story, as a first-person narrative. Sometimes a little heavy going, because, lets face it, Galois was pretty obnoxious (probably autistic, possibly schizophrenic). However, the story is interesting enough and the book well written, so it holds the attention to the last page.
