3.9/5 Goodreads

A novel of history, adventure, science, invention, sex, absurdity, piracy, madness, death and alchemy that sweeps across continents and decades, upending kings, armies, religious beliefs and all expectations. Bringing a remarkable age and its momentous events to vivid life - in an historical epic populated by Samuel Pepys, Isaac Newton, William of Orange, Benjamin Franklin and King Louis XIV Quicksilver is an extraordinary achievement from one of the most remarkable and original writers of our time.

"[A] massive tour-de-force... Dense, witty, erudite, packed with fascinating characters, and gripping... Quicksilver is 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
"Staggering... An astonishing achievement" - Sunday Telegraph
