Críticas:

- "It is exhilarating to feel yourself immersed in such well-expressed and up-to-date debates." --"New Scientist"

- "The hard science is as gripping as the fiction." --"The Times"

"An irreverent but genuinely profound romp through the history and philosophy of science, cunningly disguised as a collection of funny stories about wizards and mobile luggage." --"Frontiers"
"[Pratchett alters] history with such brilliant effortlessness . . . it all gels into a cohesive and exciting whole -- which demands to be both read and enjoyed. For anyone looking for something fresh or even more off the beaten path than Pratchett's own 'Discworld' universe, one would be hard pressed to find a better pick than this." --ScienceFiction.com

Reseña del editor:

When Charles Darwin writes the wrong book and reverses the progress of science, Unseen University s wizards must once again save Roundworld (Earth, that is) from an apocalyptic end.
Ever since a wizardly experiment inadvertently brought about the creation of Roundworld, the wizard scholars of Unseen University have done their best to put things on the right course. In Darwin's Watch they may face their greatest challenge yet: A man called Darwin has written a bestselling book called The Theology of the Species, and his theory of scientific design has been witlessly embraced by Victorian society. As a result, scientific progress has slowed to a crawl, and the wizards must find a way to change history back to the way it should have been.
DARWIN'S WATCH EXPLORES THE REVERBERATIONS of major scientific advances on our planet and our culture, the dangers of obscurantism, and the theory of evolution as you have never seen it before. This brilliant addition to Pratchett's beloved Discworld series illustrates with great wit and wisdom how the laws of our universe truly are stranger than fiction."
