The Living Cosmos: Our Search for Life in the Universe
by Chris Impey
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A tour de force, 27 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Chris Impey has written a book of tremendous depth, covering the origins of the Universe, the start of life on eath and the possibilities, nay probability of life elsewhere in the Universe, in neighbouring planets, in nearby galaxies, in the outer Universe, and in parallel universes. His style is clear and entertaining, and his narrative draws the reader on. Veritably a tour de force!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a good wine, PD James improves with the years., 21 Sept. 2013
WIlkie Collins is often credited with writing the first detectiive stories ("The Woman in White", and "The Moonstone"), though for me deductive reasoning in solving crimes started with the Sherlock Holmes stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Baroness James has now extended the historical scale to the time of Jane Austen and the Napoleonic Wars.
As always, this novel is beautifully crafted. The plot is excellent, the clues and red herrings well planted. The author has skilfully retained the authenticity of Jane Austen's original characters from "Pride and Prejudice", expanded them where necessary, and even added a couple of characters from "Emma" for good measure. I especially liked Mr Darcy as the sleuth. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
