Yes! Especially to those that wonder how quatum fluctuation actually work.
The way it came alive and helped me see the historical context of Gallileo's life.
He's my favorite reader. He reads so that you forget he's there. Every character distinct and vibrant.
No. But I did enjoy it. I laughed, I cried, I was glad I bought it.
No. Out of time.
Kim Robinson has done a great job with this story. I will definitely buy more of her audiobooks. She deftly manages to weave a complex, far-fetched future into the historical facts of Galileo's life in a way that is both fantastic and utterly rooted in the scientific method. The texture of Galileo's personality and relationships is vividly illustrated by the narrator, George Guidall, who's gritty and occasionally impatient speech almost makes you forget you're listening to a narrator and not to Galileo himself. If you like mysteries, you'll find this book plodding. If you're a scifi fantasy lover, it'll be good. If you are a scientist, you'll be enthralled. Well done, Kim. Well done.
Accounting Professor and all around good guy
This is a very good book and fun to listen to. There is a nice story, interesting setting, likable characters and excellent narration. The author and the narrator are very talented.
I found the story captivating. It was entertaining and educational. As an armchair scientist, I enjoyed it very much.
After listening to the first 2 parts of the download the third part sat unplayed in my MP3 player. Finally deleted it after 2 months, nuf said.
