The Age of Wonder

Age-of-wonder-book-cover“The Age of Wonder: how the romantic generation discovered the beauty and terror of science” by Richard Holmes
Nonfiction-history – 3 stars

One of my favorite topics made dull. I love reading about gentlemen scientists and budding naturalists going out on expeditions, but somehow these adventurous tales were told in a dry and long-winded way.
