A really interesting take on the life of Adele Gödel and the self-sacrifice she did throughout her life to live through and with the eccentricities and instabilities of Kurt Gödel. It's interesting showing her perspectives, of how she meet Kurt and mingled among high-profile scientists. There's some deep science and math concepts including a chapter where Kurt tries to explain Adele his incompleteness theorem. The alternation between the flashbacks and Anna Roth coming to terms with her relationships is good as well. There are supplementing parts like a note about how much was fictional, handy footnotes and the inspiration for the novel.
