    About "Michele Zackheim"

    1. Michele Zackheim

      For many years I was a visual artist exhibiting in museum and galleries, both in the united States and Europe Over time, random words began to appear on my canvases then poems then elaborate fragments of narratives I began to think about writing and less about the visual world Finally, I simply wrote myself off the canvas and onto the lavender quadrille pages of a bright orange notebook This, my first book, was Violette s Embrace, published by Riverhead Penguin.

    1. Prvo sam sasvim slu ajno otkrila ovu knjigu na policama u knji nici Drugo, nisam ni znala da je Albert imao enu iz Vojvodine Tre e, koliko je bio lud i grub nisam mogla da vjerujem i to ne samo prema prvoj eni, nego i drugoj koja mu je bila bli a rodica Naravno otu io se i od svojih sinova Za postojanje vanbra ne k erke Alberta i Mileve Ajn tajn, po imenu Lizerl, saznalo se tek krajem osamdesetih godina pro log stolje a po objavljivanju njihovih ljubavnih pisama sa uvanih u arhivama Ajn tajnovih [...]


    2. Written upon reading this in November 2007 I ve spent the last few weeks immersed in the world of Mileva Einstein Maric, the first wife of Albert Einstein To be specific, I ve been reading Einstein s Daughter The Search for Lieserl by Michele Zackheim The book chronicles the author s efforts to solve the mystery of Mileva and Albert Einstein s daughter, born before their marriage and so considered illegitimate The little girl disappears from the record when only a year old, and no one knows whe [...]


    3. I did not know much at all about Albert Einstein when I started this book and I ended up learning so much about him This book was not only about the author s search for Einstein s illegitimate daughter, but also the evolution of a war torn society plunged into modern life Although this was a bit dry at times, I found it a fascinating and very compelling read I kept turning those pages right up to the last page I recommend this book to anyone who thinks they know Albert Einstein or anyone who lov [...]



    4. This is a tough story, the poor character of Albert Einstein is revealed, and the excruciating story of his genius wife Mileva explored She s in all ways an equal capable woman whose feminist ideals would be familiar to anyone today The author s opinions leak through, in some very questionable moments, but this very dark tale is otherwise worth the read.


    5. I learned about Einstein, his first wife, the culture and history of Serbia and its people I learned nothing about Liserl except she was a mystery I did learn the details of the authors extensive search for he truth Not a total waste of time


    6. The story here is in the search Who was she and how long did she live were facts erased by Lieserl s extended family The most important idea here is the relationship between Einstein and Mileva Maric, who married finally after Liserl was born and had two children, boys There are many questions surrounding the husband and wife and their subsequent lives The bottom line for me is that DNA is most important in deciding character and health, and Einstein may have been bright, but he was not a nice [...]


    7. What an interesting book I had heard about the Einsteins s mysterious daughter in a radio podcast, and picked up this book at used bookstore Women spent 5 years research and talking to people I was half expecting it to end with a bunch of dead ends and I don t know what happened But Im pleased to say she was thorough in her research and had backed up conclusions to wrap up the story I will say it was also neat to read about Mileva and Albert and certainly not making me a fan of the womanizer he [...]


    8. An interesting search for the illegitimate daughter of Albert Einstein and his first wife Mileva The research reveals who Albert Einstein was personally I grew to dislike him very much and who is first wife was It was also a revealing look at the social norms of the time in Serbia for women An interesting read if you can get past the listing of dates and places Ultimately, the author concludes that the child was born with a mental defect possibly Downs Syndrome and died in 1903 of scarlet fever. [...]


    9. Ok so over a hundred years ago in a strict religious part of the world, where women were treated badly, a guy and girl fell in love had a love child Their parents wouldn t allow them to marry and kept the child hidden The child got sick and died, and now there is no record of what happened to her Its not a unheard of thing happening the only reason it s a book is that it was Albert Einstein It proves that he was a human that lived in his time It s easy to look backwards and see someone as a mons [...]


    10. The societal influences that impact our lives each were very clearly highlighted and gave an interesting perspective not often considered The impact on the life of Albert Einstein of these social norms was no less than those we each face on a daily basis The lengths that some will go to in order to follow such unwritten policies is often unbelievable as in the case of this young child.


    11. The book s subject was fascinating As someone else has mentioned, by the time you finish reading the book, you end up thinking Albert Einstein was not a great husband At the same time, from reading the book, I learned a lot about Serbian culture as well As some other reviews pointed out, the author thoroughly researched her subject, but the ending was anticlimactic.


    12. This is an interesting book, but, I feel that I ought to warn anyone If you re fond of Albert Einstein the legend, don t read this book Or any book about Einstein s personal life.You ll be happier remaining in ignorance of many things therein.


    13. This was a very complete account of Einstein s early life and a very incomplete account, based on circumstantial evidence, of his daughter with his first wife I didn t like Einstein much after reading this



    14. It was sad to read about Einstein s personal life and those that suffered from his lack of care I didn t get very far, due to the subject matter.The writing was well done and well researched.


    15. This book gives insight into the personal lives and messes of a legend as well as the difficulty in reconstructing the lives of those that lived in Europe in the first half of the 20th century.


    16. A lot of background detail about a lot of people and very little pay off at the end, made for a frustrating book A bit anticlimactic to read.
