More About the Author

Journalist, award-winning author and broadcaster, Stuart Clark is a brilliant storyteller. Fiction or non-fiction, his work is written with conviction and with passion. In recent years, he has devoted his career to presenting the complex and dynamic world of astronomy to the general public.
His latest work is the pioneering trilogy The Sky's Dark Labyrinth. In the way that CJ Sansom's hugely successful Shardlake series marries crime writing with popular history, so The Sky's Dark Labyrinth trilogy blends gripping, original historical fiction with popular science.
Stuart holds a first-class honours degree and a phd in astrophysics. A Visiting Fellow at the University of Hertfordshire, he is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and a former Vice Chair of the Association of British Science Writers. But it was his first work of narrative nonfiction, The Sun Kings, that established him as a popular science writer par excellence. Without fail the reviews, ranging from Nature to Bookslut.com, remarked on his exceptional storytelling ability and sheer verve of his writing. It was shortlisted by the Royal Society for their 2008 general science book prize, it won Italy's 2009 Montselice Prize for best scientific translation, and the Association of American Publishers 2007 Professional and Scholarly Publishing Award for Excellence in the Cosmology and Astronomy category.
Stuart is a regular contributor to national and international programmes - radio and television - and dvd productions. He frequently lectures throughout the UK and, increasingly, throughout the world.
His Twitter account is @DrStuClark and his website is www.stuartclark.com

Product Description

Review

'Sit under the stars and wonder, not just at their eternal beauty and mystery, but at the courage of the men who risked their lives so we could understand them' --Daily Mail

'The best historical fiction goes beyond dates and events, giving historical figures emotions, achievements and failings. This is very much the case here' --We Love This Book

Format: Kindle Edition
As within the first two books, this really brings alive the people, the processes as well as the material of physics - and, in an exemplary way, the relations between science and religion.
I consider my self reasonably familiar with the physics and basics of the histories; and recommend these volumes strongly for anyone who wants a very readable, engaging, correct and insightful introduction... Not least of all for those who want to think about science & religion in a more considered way than as presented by the ranting, radical atheists - and u say that as an atheists!

Why penultimate?
One can only hope that Stuart will find more material for this kind if book. It's a service to science and the public.

A very enjoyable trilogy of science historical fictional read. Well done Dr Clark worth the wait for the three books.

I felt this book was a little vague compared to the previous two and actually seemed to focus more on the first world war and circumstances in Germany, rather than the science. As I would have preferred the science, it lost a star.

As with the previous books in the trilogy, Dr Clark has produced a very well-written account of the people and the science. I devoured this in two sittings. I teach astronomy to adults and have recommended this trilogy to my students; those who have followed up on this recommendation have reported that they have found the books to be accessible and informative. This means that I can say, with confidence, that the books are suitable for anyone with an interest in the subject matter and that it is not necessary to have prior knowledge or understanding of it.

I have to say that I did not find this third book quite as compelling as the first two. That it is still worthy of 5 stars is indicative of the excellent quality of the trilogy as a whole. Very highly recommended.

As an academic historian of science specialising in astronomy in the twentieth century, I was already familiar with the factual elements of this historical novel. Therefore I am delighted to say that the historical narrative and the well-observed details are correct, with one exception that I'll come to in a moment. The narrative is splendidly done, and the tale about the discovery of the expanding universe is nicely paced. The personal details are important in this book, where you will learn a great many facts about the personal life of Einstein and the many scientists with whom he interacting without having to labour through one of the many giant tomes of biography of Einstein.

In this account I am greatly impressed by the handling of Lemaître's science: his finding of expanding solutions of Einstein's equations, his relationship with Eddington, and above all treading the dividing line between science and religion. This latter challenge is beautifully handled by the author.

The one point on which I am doubtful, but I stand to be corrected is this. I do not think Hubble and his assistants measured redshifts at the 100-inch. Hubble used Slipher's redshifts as tabulated by Stromberg. Nor do I think Hubble did very much hands on observing -- much of that was left to the former mule driver Milton Humason -- Hubble defined, Humason was the dutiful observer, Hubble reduced the observations. But these are minor quibbles. This book is a significant contribution to popular science, and a great account of how we discovered the universe

This 3rd and final books was as enjoyable as the previous two. The book in written in a simple but informative way helping to clarify a complex topic and making philosophy & science accessible in an entertaining way. I would recommend the trilogy to beginners wanting a better understanding of how modern day life has developed from these classic theories and the cultures that surrounded them.
