Coming up- a review of The solitude of prime numbers

Busy this week, but I have finally received my specially-ordered copy in Italian of Paolo Giordano's The Solitude of prime numbers, a big hit in Italy, and successful elsewhere, too. They've also made a movie from it that I haven't seen. I got the book through The Newton library, and if you live in the Boston area within the Minutemen Library network, you can read it free, too. As soon as I return it. I've gotten through almost half, and so far, so good.

I'll be reviewing it in a couple of days. Until then, here's a video of the author, who as you can see is cute and has slightly crazy hair as befits a boy genius.
