    review Lightning Mary 103 Lightning MaryThis is a fictionalised account of the life of Mary Anning an early 19th century paleontologist The novel covers Anning's childhood and ends when she is twelve Anning is from a poor family her father is a cabinet maker who goes fossil hunting in his spare time and they often struggle to have enough to eat Anning learns to find and extract fossils with the help of her father but she uickly surpasses him due to her tenacity and passion Through the novel we get a vivid portrait of Anning as she determinedly sets out to the treacherous cliffs to hunt for fossils Not only are the cliffs hostile and dangerous but the world itself is hostile to poor girls like Anning and to science itself Anning was living at a time when most people took the Bible literally and to suggest that fossi

    review Lightning Mary 103 Lightning MaryThis is a book that acknowledges that women because of their gender and social standing as well as class have not been getting the chances or the praise they deserve I am all on board This is absolutely true and I think it's wonderful that and female positive books are on the market that shed light on interesting and brilliant characters rather than making the protagonist ladies have typically male trades and call it an 'empowering masterpiece' There is still a bit of that in here though Mary is a boyish girl who refuses to play with dolls and goes on the hunt with her dad and refuses to make herself 'pretty' Granted she is encourages to 'pretty herself' in order to attract male attention for a possible husband but wh

    review Lightning Mary 103 Lightning MaryHow to define a woman as a scientist This is the dilemma that underpins the frustrations of determined and prickly souvenir maker and palaeontologist Mary Anning whose young life in the hardships of C18th Dorset challenge her and the sympathies of those around her Mary is not easily likeable brusue dismissive but the author portrays her and her situation in such a way that we are drawn to stand alongside her and see how people came to admire and love her This is a neat trick by Simmons and allows the narrative to conclude on a downbeat that reflects Anning’s own frustrations and suggests how identities are formed but not always neatly resolved no mean feat

    review Lightning Mary 103 Lightning MaryAn inspiring and evocative look at the life of Mary Anning a scientist whose work was often not appreciated or acknowledged during her life because of her gender and social status In this book Mary has a strong voice and a fierce determination to go her own way regardless of what people around her want her to do This is the perfect inttoduction to learning about Mary and highlighting female scirntists

    review Lightning Mary 103 Lightning MaryI sad but inspiring tale about the famous archaeologist ‘Lighting’ Mary AnningI enjoyed the book as a whole It was very slow to begging and I think the writing style itself was a little overly descriptive and dragged but then again I also didn’t uite get on with Mary’s character so it may have simply been that whi

    review Lightning Mary 103 Lightning MarySet in the harsh deadly coastal winters of 19th Century Lyme Regis in England Anthea Simmons’ gritty compelling book about the real life palaeontologist Mary Anning is as inspirational as it is educational I was lucky enough to grow up along the Jurassic coastline where this book is set and one of the things I enjoyed most a

    review Lightning Mary 103 Lightning MaryEngagingly written with a wonderful 'voice' this fictionalised account of the early life of Mary Anning one of my heroes was so enjoyable The book perfectly evokes the frustrations of Mary's status and how little was thought of her genius because she was female; it also gives a palpable account of the challenges she and her family faced due to poverty and illness A brilliant interesting educational story and a great introduction to the incredible Lightning Mary

    review Lightning Mary 103 Lightning Mary35🌟A fascinating and enjoyable fictional telling of the real life story of Mary Anning scientist It was evocative inspiring and melancholic in eual measure and didn't necessarily read like a children's book I think down to its setting themes and the characteristics of the main character of Mary However the book is filled with rich detail and a timely message I really liked it who doesn't want to read about paleontological discoveries on the Dorset coast in the 1800s
