Louisa is an imaginative and curious chambermaid who, while cleaning rooms at the New Yorker Hotel, stumbles across a man living permanently in room 3327, which he has transformed into a scientific laboratory. Brought together by a shared interest in the pigeons that nest in the hotel, Louisa discovers that the mysterious guest is Nikola Tesla, one of the most brilliant – and most neglected – inventors of the twentieth century.

The Invention of Everything Else charts the relationship of the girl and the genius during the last week of Tesla’s life, when sinister forces are closing in on him. However, as well as being an engaging literary mystery, this exceptional novel movingly tells the life story of this extraordinary man and also recounts the heartbreak and redemption of one ordinary family..

It took me a really long time to get into this book, I didn’t feel properly immersed until at least 150 pages in, then my reading got gradually faster and faster towards the end. I’m still not sure what to make of it. I enjoy finding out facts from reading fiction, so it was good to learn bits and pieces from Tesla’s life, among other things. I did a lot of googling while reading this book! So it was educational at least.
Thanks again Vixen for passing this book on to me. It’s reserved for crimson-tide and will be sent on its way when I’ve read its travelling companions.
