ENCHANTRESS OF NUMBERSWritten by Jennifer ChiaveriniNarrated by Virginia Leishman2017 DuttonPenguin 446 Pages Audio length 20 hours and 2 minutesGenre fiction historical fiction Britain history science math biography women RATING 3 STARSI have to admit that I became interested in Ada Lovelace due to her father Byron I enjoyed Byron s poetry and study him and his friends Mary and Percy Shelley s work for school He is a fascinating person in literature history He also sounds like a huge jerk to people around him And the whole thing with his sister is definitelyodd Then I heard about Ada and all her accomplishments with math and science blew me away It was so cool that a woman from her class and time was able to get so far I was so happy to see that Chiaverini was writing a book on her Chiaverini has most written about American historical figures especially in the Civil War era I was really interested in reading this one Chiaverini is a good writer and she was able to make Lovelace s time period come alive With the narrator s accent and reading of it I felt like I was there Chiaverini is great at descriptions and makes her books come alive However in that same vain she is also too detailed There are moments when it feels like a fact drop While the time and place comes alive the characters sometimes become neglected as people and driven by descriptions The plot and story lines sometimes get lost and moments get dull I think Chiaverini s novels could be brilliant if there was a bit editor input This book did get me excited to learn about Ada and Byron It is hard to say if I recommend this novelI received an eARC from NETGALLEYMy Novelesue Blog
