Product description

Review

‘Thought-provoking and moving in equal measure. Robinson captures the joy of scientific discovery better than anyone else working today; the characterisation is splendid, with Galileo himself coming sharply to life … Elegant, charming, funny and profound, Galileo's Dream is magnifico.’ Guardian

'A brilliant work of imagination, drawing together the “two cultures” in a harmonious marriage of science and art' The Times

'A warts and all picture, but one that makes us love and admire the great astronomer in spite of his weaknesses' Independent

‘A triumph, with Robinson's gifts for characterisation and world-building firmly to the fore. His Galileo is wonderful: brilliant, irascible, sometimes hateful, and always fascinating. The finale is both stirring and melancholic, and a fitting tribute to science's most famous iconoclast.’ New Scientist

‘Galileo’s Dream is an undertaking of epic scope that takes in 17th Century politics, the clash of science against dogma and time travel. A dense but rich and compelling literary accomplishment.’ SciFi Now

‘A compelling story … fascinating’ Catholic Herald
