Sinopsis:

Book by Janet Browne

Críticas:

"No other biography has matched Browne's ability to capture so richly the details of Darwin's time and to convey them with such direct and engaging prose."--Library Journal (starred review) "Exciting and richly evocative."--Kirkus Reviews "A wonderful and well-rounded portrait.... We watch Darwin grow from a careless and happy young boy to a driven and ambitious young man, and Browne is very good at letting us see the moments when Darwin began to sense the scope of his own powers.... This Darwin is remarkably real."--Jonathan Weiner, The Washington Post "There is no better chronicle of Darwin as human being, friend, and indefatigable scientist, nor anywhere a richer description of his milieu, his family life, his social circle, and his scientific connections. Browne's extraordinary knowledge of the literature of the period makes her account particularly insightful.... [A] masterpiece.... Browne knows how to spellbind the reader.... The definitive Darwin biography."--Ernst Mayr, Newsday "This book deserves the adjectives of praise traditionally used by reviewers to describe masterpieces. . . . It is wonderful and marvelous, even magisterial."--Stephen Jay Gould, The New York Review of Books
