Another excellent bit of scientific-historical writing,

This review is from: The Sensorium of God: The Sky's Dark Labyrinth Book II (The Sky's Dark Labyrinth Trilogy) (Kindle Edition)
Having read the first book of the trilogy, I was eagerly anticipating this one -- it did not disappoint. I was already familiar with most of the scientific/astronomical aspects of the story, but not the socio-political setting in which it took place. Stuart Clark has an enviable knack of enlivening the times of which he writes and I found myself transported to the latter part of the 17th Century and empathising with the very human struggles of the main protagonists (even those of Newton, whose character was not depicted sympathetically - although, from what I know, it was an accurate depiction).
The book has the feel of a good adventure yarn. With a bit of development of some of the side-plots, I think that this book, like the first, would make a very good film!
