|This is a quick, interesting listen about the life of Marie Curie, told sort of in a novella format. It’s fun to experience her love of science and her budding romance with Pierre Curie from her perspective. And I didn’t realize how much she had to overcome in order to study science: she had no money, and her sister wanted to be a doctor. So she worked for five years as a governess to send her sister through medical school, and then they traded: her sister sending her wages to send Marie for a Ph.D. Very inspiring!
My rating: ****
