This was amazing and I enjoyed every page, even when I was having an anxiety attack because I was so worried Theo was going to give his wife syphilis.

One of the things I liked best was the depiction of the relationships between all the famous artists before they were legends. I'm a big fan of Georges Seurat and Paul Gauguin's work and it was really fascinating to read about them in relationship to Van Gogh. It's wild to think of Theo amassing a collection of priceless masterpieces and his bosses at the gallery telling him to stop wasting his time. Dummies!

My other favorite thing was how well Heiligman describes art. There's a thing a good writer can do where they make you appreciate something on another level. I felt that way about how Pam Muñoz Ryan wrote about making music in [b:Echo|22749539|Echo|Pam Muñoz Ryan|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1460587774s/22749539.jpg|42294915]. I like art. I like music. But I feel the importance of both more deeply when I read great books about them.

Delightful! By the way, Erdos is pronounced "AIR-dish".

There once was a boy named Paul who loved math. He spend days calculating, counting and thinking about numbers. His mom was a math teacher and he was placed in the care of a babysitter who had many rules. He taught himself to count really high to figure out how many days it would be until summer vacation.
