The imagery created by Paterniti is so refreshing. It nice to see writing that reflects the art that writing can be when done with thought and purpose and not just a vomit of words.

There are several nice turns of phrase--the author is something of a wordsmith. However, the author seems to want the story to hinge on the person of a pathologist who, after performing a perfunctory autopsy upon Einstein's death, took the great man's brain as a sort of talisman or trophy--we never get much of a hint about why he did what he did or much of why the decision was made to take the brain to Einstein's granddaughter in California. There was insufficient character development of any of the main characters, and barely a story line.
Even the title became annoying because there is no place in the story where Einstein is referred to as "Mr. Albert," so "Driving Mr. Albert" appears to be an unoriginal allusion to the film (and book?) "Driving Ms. Daisy," but of course there is no real connection there either.
