Revenge (1998)
language
English
3.84 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I got this book as part of being in a book club in which we exchange books and tell each other a little something about the book we're giving away. I wouldn't say this book was sinister, but it was certainly creepy, dark and had dangerous elements. I found this book to be quite...

review 1: Although I do not have much of a review for this book, I will say it was interesting that Mari found sexual attraction in being treated poorly by the translator, yet she did not like her mother doting on her hair, amongst many of the things her mother did. Maybe she found this se...
The Housekeeper and the Professor (2009)
language
English

review 1: This is a book that has sat in my collection for some time, but it was because another reviewer mentioned it had a connection to baseball, and I was reeling from the annual end-of-baseball-season malaise (even though my team won the Series), I had to read it. What a delight. A ...

review 1: The Housekeeper and the Professor is a short but sweet novelette about a housekeeper who gets assigned to an unusual client — a former mathematics professor who’s short-term memory only lasts for 80 minutes. A novel concept which presents unusual challenges!Yes there is some mat...
La fórmula preferida del profesor (2008)
language
English
3.94 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: La formula preferida del profesor es sin duda una obra muy peculiar. En primera, la trama es bastante particular-como personaje principal un matemático que sufre de amnesia recurrente (su memoria expira cada 80 minutos). El tema en si de esta historia, es un trama matematico. La ...
Das Geheimnis der Eulerschen Formel (2013)
language
English
3.94 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Small words, big feelings. The whole book is shrouded in ambiguity (two of the three main characters are nameless), and at its heart, its a pulpy romance with a fun little premise, namely mathematics. Don't expect much descriptive language, many actual goings-on or any real chara...
La formula del professore (2008)
language
English
3.94 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I don't know what to say. This is one of the most touching books I have read in a long time. It is right up there with Kabloona and just a few other books that I would give five stars. It is a book about memory and mathematics, but mostly about relationships. It is about true fri...
