Praise

“Elegant, charming, funny and profound.”—The Guardian (U.K.)

“Blending epic sf with alternate history, this is a masterwork of storytelling, philosophy, and science.”—Library Journal
 
“A brilliant work of imagination, drawing together the ‘two cultures’ in a harmonious marriage of science and art.” —The Times (London)

“The historical sections are a triumph, with Robinson’s gifts for characterization and world-building firmly to the fore. . . . The finale is both stirring and melancholic, and a fitting tribute to science’s most famous iconoclast.” —New Scientist
 
“Riveting . . . Robinson brings [Galileo] to life with both his genius and his faults.”—The Denver Post
 
“Told with verve and a sense of excitement.”—January Magazine
