    The Civil War may be over but a new war has begun, one between the past and the present, tradition and technology. On a former marshy wasteland, the daring Massachusetts Institute of Technology is rising, its mission to harness science for the benefit of all and to open the doors of opportunity to everyone of merit. But in Boston Harbor a fiery cataclysm throws commerce into chaos, as ships’ instruments spin inexplicably out of control. Soon after, another mysterious catastrophe devastates the heart of the city.

    Stephen feinstone says: "Good story ruined by poor reading"
    "Relatively Simplistic Story."

    What would have made The Technologists better?

    Storyline was not very believable. I could not get myself to really believe the plot.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Matthew Pearl again?

    I would give him a second chance if other reviews were very positive.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes
