Even though I'm revising hard for an Astronomy exam., I found it hard to put this book down. You can really imagine being back there in the 17th century, getting involved with the characters. Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler would have been thrilled to know that their names are being used in the Space explorations.
Stuart's style reminds me of C J Sansom's series of historical novels, which I also enjoyed.
Looking forward to Stuart Clark's next one in the Autumn.
