Review: The Technologists

The Technologists
The Technologists by Matthew Pearl
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very excited to read this one — Set in Massachusetts post Civil War, thrilling premise, science (science fiction?), academic rivalries, and I get to meet the author next week!

“Be skeptical for now, gentlemen. But remember every scientific truth goes through three stages. First, people say it conflicts with the Bible. Second, they say it has been discovered before. Last, they say they always believed it.” attributed to Professor Agassiz of Harvard, p. 172.

Post civil war social upheaval! Academic rivalry! Science! Explosions! Love.

What-ho! Jolly good tale with all those collegeys talking like Bertie Wooster.
