synopsis
Earth is at war. Portals are opening across the planet and bringing creatures known as Outsiders. Their only desire is to eat, leaving a trail of destruction in their path. All that stand in their way are the Defenders led by Gareth Walker who can open portals of their own to target the Outsiders in minutes. Gareth's one advantage is an ability to see glimpses of his future. For the past decade the Defenders have held back the incursion, but now a new portal opens, bringing something that Gareth did not see coming. As he must find a way to stop this new threat, he starts a quest for answers. He must learn how the war began and find a way to stop them once and for all. All the while, he is aware of a shadow in his future a moment he can't see past. Will stopping the Outsiders cost him everything?

The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict

Review:
The premise seemed extremely fascinating especially because I never even once thought of Albert Einstein having a wife which seems silly now that I think about it.  However, now that I go back and think about it, a lot of those famous people back in the day, I don’t think the general public really ever thought of them as a person who had any personal life other than what we know them as.  For example, Isaac Newton: I’m sure he had a wife but we know nothing about her.  In fact, when I googled him, there wasn’t even a mention about a wife.  Imagine all the people we missed out on who probably played an essential role in supporting or fostering these great figures in our past.  So when I saw the synopsis for The Other Einstein, I jumped at it.

The book definitely started off quite slow – in fact, for the first quarter of the book, I really contemplated about putting the book down because it was just.so.slow.  I understand the author had to build the plot and the world for the readers but honestly, the pace was just ridiculously mind-numbingly slow.  However, just when I was 99% sure about putting the book down, it finally started to get interesting.  By this point, I was probably close to a third in.
