Summer 2019 - Aublible original from Feb 2019;

This was a delightful little listen, with a very competent narrator, nothing bad or good to say either way on the last. I definitely found myself lost in the enchantment of the story and not pulled out of it by the narrator for this round at any point.

This is a historical-fiction of Marie Curie's life while she was still Maria Sklodowska, a woman burgeoning in the world she loved, full of science and men who did not respect her place within the scope of that realm. It's a good rendition of her passion and unwavering focus on it, and little else, because she did not want to be sidelined by any of the female gender roles (and traps) of her time period.

I loved the down-to-earthness of her sister, and the quiet, unswerving dedication of Pierre, who was willing to be friends on her terms, but whom refused to ever go so far as to saying he did not love her or dream of a life where they could be perfect partners, both pursuing their passions in for science together. I love that their love story is one of understanding a person more than bowing compromise, or discovering you were wrong all along.

The end of it -- as we're paused like a pendulum over the question of "Will you let me love you?" -- and the narration begins to give us flashes of Marie as a young girl, as well as the greatest triumphs and tragedies of her life to come, gave me goosebumps. I absolutely recommend this tiny read/listen. ( )

This novel is about young Marie Curie trying to make her way in the world of science. "Mind of her Own" started well and I was interested in the challenges Marie, as a female student at the Sorbonne in Paris, faced but I wanted to learn more. Unfortunately, the plot changed once she met Pierre and it started to focus on their romance, which was rather lack-lustre. This novel had the potential to be very inspiring but it missed the mark.

Wish more facts and words from her own writings were included. ( )

Pretty borderline (2/5 but it was free). Weird fictionalized "romance novella" about Marie Curie and Pierre Curie. There was some superficial and incidental interesting content about Paris and science at the time, but other than that, it was (what I assume) stupid Romance novels tend to be, internal psychodrama or whatever. I have to hope that Marie Curie would have hated this book. ( )

I felt a little disappointed that such a brilliant mind and inspirational scientist was broadly reduced to the topic of romance in this account of the life of Marie Curie. I wanted more about the body of her work. ( )
