Marie “Slowdoski” Curie in her words.
I was born in 1867 in Warsaw Poland. By 1878 my mother died of TB. I then went to private school in Poland but we were not allowed to speak Polish.
One day the Russian inspector came to make sure that we were learning our lessons in Russian and not the forbidden polish language. When I was asked a question in Russian I answered back in perfect Russian much to the inspectors delight. The inspector didn’t know that I spoke German, English and French also.
From 1885 thru 1898 I was a governess for a Polish family, in 1891 I became a student at the Sorbonne in Paris.
I met Pierre In 1894 at the Sorbonne. They wanted me to do a studied on the magnetic properties of steel.
I did not have a place to do my study so a friend introduced me to Pierre Curie who managed a place where I could do my study. 1895 Pierre and I where married.

1914 thru 1918 I Help treat the wounded soldiers of WORLD WAR 1. 1922 I am elected to the French academy of Medicine and in 1934 I Dies of Radiation poisoning in France.
Before I read this book I though Marie Curie would be a boring person to be. After I read the book I found out Marie was not so boring and is pretty exciting
Three thing I learned where that Marie was the smartest girl at her private school, she was good friends with Albert Einstein, and she was the only person to get two Nobel prizes. I would recommend this book to anyone how want’s to read about a grate person. I thought it was an OK book if you like biography.
I don’t like biography so I didn’t like this book to much.
