it was amazing
Read in January, 2011

Kim Stanley Robinson writes what I like to call humanistic science fiction. All this characters are highly developed within his books and the storys just revolve around these fully developed characters.

This book is a delightfull combination of Galileo in the 17th century and the far future. A creature from the future has become anamoured with Galileo and wants to share the future with him. Unfortunately as Galileo was known to down a bottle or two of wine he doesn't know whether he is dreaming or actually experiencing the assorted trips into the future.

Robinson must surely understand the 17th century as he accurately describes what was happenning to Galileo at ths time

Highly entertaining
