The Lost Equation of Isaac Severy
By Nova Jacobs
Monica Reads, a review
By Monica Drahonovsky
Hello readers. A few questions. Do you ever wonder about the future and what it holds for you?
Do you believe in the Chaos Theory? Predestination? Do you think a mathematical equation might prove to be the portal to answers for all such questions? Are you curious?
The book is a first novel by the writer and I have found it fascinating. In each chapter the author introduces new clues. The reader has the option of solving the many problems of a fractured family call Severy.
One clue leads to another and then another question is raised and a complex cast of family characters is enmeshed in a series of murders that Isaac Severy has solved.
Who he gives the answer to, how it is found and by whom will engage your imagination. I guarantee you will be wrong.
The twists and turns of all of these family members who dislike each other and are jealous of each other is something to behold. The author also gives the reader Hazel and Gregory, brother and sister who experience all that life offers including the good, the bad and the ugly.
A good read. A page turner. Go to the library and get it. You will like it. I have a new appreciation of the mathematical theories out there in the world. I will have to find a new way of balancing my checkbook now. Maybe.
