I do not think I would have ever picked up the book, The Housekeeper and the Professor to read. But a good friend loaned me a copy of Yoko Ogawa's book. What a wonderful read! Not only is the story a delight, but the way math is woven into the story is awesome. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a novel.
Just one quote from the book:
Math has proven the existence of God, because it is absolute and without contradiction; but the devil must exist as well, because we cannot prove it.
