Galileo's Dream - Kim Stanley Robinson


…The author took a chance by adding the Jovian story line and I don't think it quite worked like Robinson intended. It's interesting it its own way but it cannot balance to absolutely brilliant historical part of the novel. Despite that, I enjoyed reading this book an awful lot. Galileo's Dream is a novel with several layers, historical element was absolutely outstanding to me but there are also some very interesting scientific, philosophical and religious elements to the book. It is a book that is written to be reread. Several times probably. As usual, I am impressed with the scope of the novel and Robinson's knowledge of the subject. Perhaps not perfect but certainly recommended reading.
