In which Daniel Waterhouse, fearless thinker and courageous Puritan, pursues knowledge in the company of the greatest minds of Baroque-era Europe — in a chaotic world where reason wars with the bloody ambitions of the mighty, and where catastrophe, natural or otherwise, can alter the political landscape overnight.

I will admit openly that I read this book because a friend of mine wanted me to. The same friend who pushed Harry Potter on me. Now, she loved the series and I am sure meant well and mean for me to like it as well. Unfortunately I just couldn’t get into this book. I did try, I tried hard but by the end of the book I found myself letting out a breath and saying thank goodness!

Now why didn’t I like the book is the next question I will be asked. Honestly I am not fully sure. The writing was good, the plot was well thought out. The characters were likeable. All of these things together should have made for a great book, and yet I just didn’t enjoy it. So when I sit back and think about it I think I boils down to me. I think that the dislike of the book is purely me and that it just wasn’t my kind of book. However I would recommend it to someone else with that warning.

So there is my odd and muddled review on this book. I have such conflicting feelings about the puritan Daniel. I Hope my loyal review readers won’t think I have fallen off my rocker!
