really liked it

Remarkable! Hard read but remarkable. Not so much in the information and endless argumentation, rationalisations and justifications, but in the glimpse we get into the incredibly insightful and forward-thinking man that Darwin was, while surrounded by contemporaries holding on to irrational and indefensible views about nature, evolution and the role of God. On a practical note, I would recommend reading only the final chapters and summaries to get basically all of relevant information, if this is what you are interested in: there is much repetition throughout the text, and the style of prose is also in itself very repetitive.
