La ridícula idea de no volver a verte, by Rosa Montero

My parents were visiting us this summer, and brought me this book, while I was writing the Marie Curie Fellowship.

The book is like a reflexion about life and death. Rosa Montero started to write it after she received the diary that Marie Curie wrote after the death of Pierre Curie. Although it could seem that is a sad book, I enjoyed reading it, since apart from speaking of the death it speaks much more about life, specially about the hard life that had Marie Curie. It also speaks about the life of women in general. As a woman scientist Marie Curie is one of my heroes, among lots of oder less known woman scientist.

I strongly recommend the reading of this book, and if you don’t speak spanish, you could always wait for the translation of the book.

Do you have any heroes that serve you as an inspiration?
