Descrição

From New York Times best-selling author Stuart Gibbs comes the first novel in a thrilling new series about the world’s youngest and smartest genius who’s forced to use her unbelievable code-breaking skills to outsmart Einstein.

Charlie Thorne is a genius. Charlie Thorne is a thief. Charlie Thorne isn’t old enough to drive. And now, it’s up to her to save the world....

Decades ago, Albert Einstein devised an equation that could benefit all life on earth — or destroy it. Fearing what would happen if the equation fell into the wrong hands, he hid it.

But now, a diabolical group known as the Furies are closing in on its location. In desperation, a team of CIA agents drags Charlie into the hunt, needing her brilliance to find it first — even though this means placing her life in grave danger.

In a breakneck adventure that spans the globe, Charlie must crack a complex code created by Einstein himself, struggle to survive in a world where no one can be trusted, and fight to keep the last equation safe once and for all.

    If you like adventure and suspense, you'll like this 2020 Lone Star novel, Charlie Thorne and the Last Equation.Albert Einstein wrote an equation that could help or harm mankind, but no one has ever found it. Was it destroyed the night he died? The CIA need to find it before a group known as the Furies find it and wreak havoc. Charlie Thorne, a genius--almost as smart as Einstein--represents their only hope. Charlie can do pretty much anything. Even as a young teenager, she attends college. "Attend" is a stretch. She enrolls and shows up for tests, acing them and even correcting professors. She made a great deal of money, well, not made but stole it. She did truly earn it, they failed to pay her, so she paid herself. She's skiing off an illegal path when she spots Dante and knows the CIA needs her. She does not want to be needed, so she runs.Dante and his partner need Charlie in order to thwart the bad guys, get the formula, interpret it, and save the world. Charlie makes nothing easy. The entire novel involves their lives being in danger constantly. The plot is thin, but I didn't really care because I like fast-paced movies with lots of actions and little plot. It's a nice distraction. So, too, is this book. You'll travel the globe, be fascinated by Charlie's abilities, and worry if they can survive. It's a fun novel!

    I find myself listening to more and more audio books. And I also find that I'm (happily) listening outside of my normal choices.Charlie Thorne and the Last Equation is new from Stuart Gibbs and was my latest listen.Charlie Thorne is actually a twelve year old girl. A brilliant (and wealthy) twelve year old who is already in college. But her studies are cut short (well honestly she hardly ever went anyway) when the CIA comes calling. They need her help to find a 'last equation' from Albert Einstein - one that some 'baddies' also want. If it falls into the wrong hands, the fate of the world is at stake.Gibbs has penned a fun read that anyone around that twelve year old mark is going to love. (and especially girls) Charlie has an incredible quick mind. Listeners will enjoy her leaps - both physically and mentally. She thwarts the adults in her path time and time again. I must admit, I was impressed with Gibbs' clues - they're well thought out, believable and fairly intricate. I quite enjoyed following along to the final reveal. The action is constant, keeping the book moving forward at a fast pace.The two adult agents paired with Charlie are (thankfully) not buffoons. They're very capable as well. Gibbs does some relationship exploration between both agents and Charlie. This is done thoughtfully - after all, she may be brilliant, but she's still a twelve year old.Emily Woo Zeller was the reader and she did a great job. She provided a perfectly suited voice for Charlie, youngish sounding but full of sass. She lowers and slows down the tone and pace for the adult characters. The male voices were believable. And all the characters were easily differentiated. Zeller's voice is clear and easy to understand and she enunciates well. She captured the action and tension of the plotting easily with her inflection and speed.This would be a great listen for a family road trip. And I could see a sequel in the making.
