Elisa Mancini is a Nobody. Painfully insecure, more at ease with books than with people, at twenty-three she’s a university dropout living at her aunt’s, drifting from one day to another, and waiting for something big to happen.
Judith Shapiro is a Somebody. Arrogant and eccentric, she’s a superstar of mathematics, the subject of scientific articles, and the undisputed ruler of the world around her.
In a trillionth of a trillionth of a second, Elisa falls madly in love with Judith Shapiro. For sixty-eight days she is the mistress of an internationally acclaimed mathematician.
But loving Judith Shapiro is like running a marathon in a war zone. As days pass, Elisa’s wild infatuation takes on a suicidal bent, and the world around her starts to go to pieces. Just as everything is about to blow up, the moment of truth comes.
Absolute Truth, for Beginners is a story about truth, time and love. Or about identity, positive nursing, degrees of happiness, Baroque art, scientific theories, homosexual lovemaking, arrogant television producers, and becoming who you really are.
My Review: Elisa is a little lost right now. She’s kind of a nobody, lives within her books, and just chilling at her aunts place after dropping out of school. Its not really a bad things right now. She is still young and just waiting for something to happen. Everyone figures out their plan at different times, and right now Elisa is just waiting for her life to take off.
It looks like Judith is going the be that something. She is known, she has her thing and boy does she know it. Yup, she likes to be the ruler of her world. And Judith is about to become Elisa’s world.
Elisa starts to fall for Judith, and becomes so wrapped up, that her own world becomes oblivious. Things just seem tougher, right up to the breaking point. All it took was that point for the truth to come out.
The details, strong characters, just everything about this book was amazing. Each book I’ve read by the author hasn’t disappointed me, and I can’t wait to see what she comes out with next! Certainly an author to watch.
