YA Nonfiction Review

Charles and Emma: The Darwins' Leap of FaithCharles and Emma: The Darwins’ Leap of Faith by Deborah Heiligman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed listening to this book and I learned a lot about Charles Darwin that I never knew before – actually, I really never knew much about him except that the idea of Evolution came from him. I thought it was a nice turn from a typical biography, with the focus being mostly about Charles and Emma, not just Charles and his accomplishments. Though the book was also largely about that as well. I thought it seemed well-written and researched and I found that I enjoyed it more than I originally thought I would. Some of the little details about their everyday life were nice and made them seem like real people. Biographies & Nonfiction are not my favorite genre, but I like to break out of my fiction box every now and then and this was a pleasant side trip 🙂
