Book Review: Brave Genius by Sean B. Carroll — 9 Comments

  1. I have added this to my TBR list, although, like you, I will find it intimidating.
    I am currently totally absorbed by WWII stories. I posted about a couple of books today.

  2. I hadn’t heard of this one before Joy, it does sound daunting, but interesting too. I enjoyed your quote about the bells ringing across Paris at the end of the war.

  3. Pat yourself on the back for sticking with this one. I started it but did not finish it. It was well-written and well-researched but it was dense. I may go back to it, I only made it about halfway through the first time around. But it really is amazing what these people accomplished during the occupation. It gave me a new appreciation of that time.

  4. Joy, Sorry it’s taken me so long to respond to your Dreaming of France. I agree with your assessment that I keep learning how much I don’t know about World War II and part of that probably is the U.S.-centered learning. This sounds challenging.
