    With Galileo’s Dream, Kim Stanley Robinson crafts an instant masterpiece that blends epic adventure and thoughtful alternate history. Ganymede, a rebellious Jovian, attempts to bring famed scientific mind Galileo forward in time to alter the course of history with astonishing results.

    Overall

    I need to start by pointing out I'm a huge KSR fan and own something like 9 or 10 of his books.

    I simply loved this novel. It had me interested from start to finish. Portions of it were exquisitely well-written, there was plenty of drama and even a little romantic tension to keep things moving. The deep descriptions of math and science didn't phase me, although having read many KSR books, I'm used to it.

    The narrator was wonderful and a pleasure to listen to. I loved his low growl and his character voice work.

    You probably have to be a hardcore SF fan, or at least a big Robinson fan, to enjoy this book as thoroughly as I did, but if you are, you won't be disappointed.
