good book on science

Does anybody know a book (about biological science preferably) which can be read like a novel? Like a life story of a scientist, or some random ramblings of a scientist wondering about nature, or anything which one can read and get inspired/thrilled. A good example would be "the Beautiful mind", which came as a movie later.
