I have been searching for a Novel that revolves around a fictional genius, unfortunately google search is not helping. Clearly mentioning I don't want biographies. I had marked a book to be read which had a fictional genius character who solved problem using his ingenuity.

More Information from the Summary:
The character faced a set of constantly evolving emotional and real life problems. He could easily overcome the real life problems using his intellect but the emotional problems always remained a trouble for him.
Also his parents prevented him for displaying his talents to the world as they were afraid that people would try to exploit their child.

  • Are you looking for recommendations? If so, that's off-topic for questions. However, I might recommend Evil Genius for a young-adult book, Artemis Fowl if you don't mind magitek (or for younger readers). We've also got Enders Game, The Wise Man's Fear (etc). – Adamant Jun 9 '16 at 17:35
  • @Obie No, not exactly I thought of adding that in the end. I had put a novel in my to read list but unfortunately I can't find it. All I remember is it had a genius character who got out of problems using his ingenuity – Aaditya Sahay Jun 9 '16 at 17:36
  • @Obie I just read the summary an year ago, but lets see all what I remember. The protagonist faced constant troubles - social and real. He used his ingenuity to deal with the real ones. The social problems were always a trouble for him. – Aaditya Sahay Jun 9 '16 at 17:43

    What about this book was science fiction or fantasy? – Valorum Jun 9 '16 at 18:13

    This sounds rather generic. – Organic Marble Jun 9 '16 at 21:56
