    What a beautiful and mesmerizing book I didn t so much read it as get lost in it, finishing it in little than a day Katherine is a Mathemetician, professional, respected, and accomplished In the novel she looks back on her life, particularly the early stages of her career which were inextricably bound up with the story of where she came from.In post WWII America, numbers come naturally to Katherine from an early age, but the world of mathematics is never a natural fit She is always the only woman, and almost always the only person who is not white she s half white, half Chinese The system is stacked against her in ways large and small, but despite her intelligence, she is not the kind of person who can use her confidence and boldness to push her forward against the tide Some of her insecurity is natural, but much of it is tied deeply to the mother who abandoned her as a child As she grows up, this gets even complicated when she discovers that hardly anything she knows about her family is tru...

    Bernhard Riemann, German mathematician, in 1859 proposed the Riemann hypothesis, which remains unsolved to this day In fact, the Clay Institute is offering 1 million to the person who solves it first This story is about a young ambitious woman who tries to solve the Riemann hypothesis Set during a time when only men studied science and only men were given positions as professors Katherine, the protagonist, is being told repeatedly that she could achieve so much if only she were a man.Katherine grew up in the 1940s and 1950s in the small town of New Umbria, Michigan Even as a young girl she understood the power of what her mother was telling her, that numbers underlay the mysteries of nature That if you could unlock their secrets, you could catch a glimpse of the order within Her father refused to talk about the war or his experience in it Her mother avoided talk about China where she was from When it stormed, her curiosity led her to learn about protons and electrons From her mother she learned that she could get closer to nature by learning how it worked.Her father sparked her interest in science, showing her little experiments He involved her in his projects At the same time,...

    I picked this book up for a break from the typical stuff I was required to read I needed something solid and good and refreshing This was just what I needed.I loved and connected with Katherine She was going on this emotional journey to find herself and her past It was a unique journey through math and history which was right up my alley I thought the writing was so delicious and good I loved exploring Germany in the 1950s in the aftermath of WWII It was unique and great Also, the perspective from an adopted daughter with Asian heritage was one I hadn t read before I enjoyed it and found myself learning so much Finally, it was a great book about a woman in a predominantly male field of work and study This was so relatable, even in 2019 Some of the drama between her and her lover was uninteresting and I don t think the book really picked up until she had the courage to semi leave him and go to Germany That s really the highlight of the whole story.All in all, I really l...

    I was hoping to like this much I preordered it so I assumed I would like it , but I found it average The one thing the protagainist Katherine is certain of is that she has an extraordinary gift for math Her life goal is to conquer the Riemann hypothesis, the greatest unsolved mathematical problem of her time However, she met with severe resistance as a female in the 1950 s and 60 s Her battle to have her work recognized and to overcome the prejudice against her gender in a male dominated field began in elementary school, and never ended There s also a human element to the story Katherine has a confused upbringing and doesn t know where she belongs personally, and struggles with whether to do what she wants or to take a back seat and please others Therefore of great importance ini her story is the greek myth of the tenth muse and the Chinese tale of Kwan Yin The tenth muse refuse...

    This was just beautifully brilliant Told as a memoir from Katherine s later years, it has all the insights of an older person looking back on their life As Katherine recounts her years as a constant outsider growing up in a white town and then as a woman in a male dominated field of study, you see and feel her brilliance and frustration as well as her otherness As Katherine unravels complex math hypotheses, she a...
