In The Matter of Nikola Telsa: A Romance of The Mind by: Anthony Flacco

Title: In the Matter of Nikola Telsa: A Romance of The Mind
Author: Anthony Flacco
Publisher: Diversion Books
Format: ebook
Source: Lightning Book Promotions

Description:


This fictionalized story of the true-life genius NIKOLA TESLA—arguably the most influential inventor in history—offers a "young-to-old" portrayal in the form of “A Romance of the Mind.” It reveals his impassioned inner life and his secret love for Karina, the muse no one else can see who brings him life-altering inspirations.

Karina may be invisible to others but she is exquisitely real to him. It is for her, for the life and the work that she shares with him, that this gallant, passionate man maintains a loner's life even when he is working among many others and subject to their constant temptations.

My Thoughts: 

This was definitely a different kind of book it follows young Nikola Tesla who's ill in bed with a severe fever and with this able to draw the ghost or image of a girl he loved Karina.  When he first does he thinks he's mad.  

He goes through his life with Karina by his side even though no one can see her but him.   Making you think there was more to Karina then what is mentioned it is a great story for those who are interested in Tesla, electricity, and the mysteriousness of his relationship with Karina and Tesla's life.  I really enjoyed this story and think others will as well!
