9780099410683: Quicksilver
Revue de presse :

"[A] massive tour-de-force- Dense, witty, erudite, packed with fascinating characters, and gripping despite a distended length, Quicksilver is both a worthy prequel to Cryptonomicon, and an indication that Stephenson's Baroque Cycle is shaping up to be a far more impressive literary endeavour than most so-called "serious" fiction - No scholarly, and intellectually provocative, historical novel has been this much fun since The Name of the Rose." (Charles Shaar Murray Independent)

"Staggering diversity and detail ... An astonishing achievement." ( Sunday Telegraph)

"A great, heaving countryside of a book...consistently funny...fluent and elusive, while retaining just the right hint of poison" ( Telegraph)

"Stephenson mixes a library’s worth of ideas with compulsive derring-do … its scope and inventiveness become addictive." ( Time Out)

"A breathless ride…the writing gives an immersive sense of time and place" ( Face)

Présentation de l'éditeur :

As extraordinary an achievement as Cryptonomicon, Quicksilver is Neal Stephenson's first novel in his acclaimed Baroque Cycle.

Neal Stephenson follows his international bestseller, the WWII thriller Cryptonomicon, with a novel set in the 16th and 17th centuries, in a world of war, scientific, religious and political turmoil.

With a cast of characters that includes Newton, Leibniz, Christopher Wren, Charles II, Cromwell and the young Benjamin Franklin, Stephenson again shows his extraordinary ability to get inside a place and time; as he did for the futures of his science fiction (Snowcrash,The Diamond Age) and for WWII (Cryptonomicon), here he does for the England of the Civil War and the Europe of the Wars of Religion and the Scientific Revolution. Quicksilver is yet another tour-de-force from a writer who is simply unique.
