Reviewed by Alma Boucher for Readers' Favorite

Adam Reemi is a child of war in Einstein in the Attic by Dana Dargos. His parents made him feel like the most cherished child and his dad always made him a priority. Adam’s chest fills with uneasiness and dread on hearing the word God. People are dying, innocent people are being oppressed, and good people like his family and others suffer. All these events unfold and it is as if God is not there. Adam feels he cannot question God when God is keeping them alive. Albert Einstein is Adam’s hero, and he wonders what Einstein would do in this situation. Adam is sure Einstein would want him to be curious and question everything around him. Twenty-five years later, Adam meets Mark Von Muntz. Mark has built a powerful particle accelerator for experimenting with the world’s beginning. If Adam works with him on this, Mark will give him credit.

Einstein in the Attic by Dana Dargos has a very exciting plot. The sensitive topic of evolution versus creationism is discussed. Dana used severe and funny scenes to write her story. The first chapters described Adam’s background as a child. It gave me a better understanding of why he is questioning his faith and beliefs as an adult. The characters were well-developed and skillfully handled. I enjoyed the conversations between Adam and Einstein. They were at times very entertaining and funny. The story is excellently written. Science and religion are discussed, and everyone is free to choose what he or she believes. There were a few statements about life and faith that I will remember. There is a lot of information that will be useful when in conversation about evolution and creationism. Einstein in the Attic exceeded my wildest expectations.
