Review:

Highly entertaining . . . [Voltaire's] life emerges as a gloriously adventurous interweaving of slapstick, cops-and-robbers chases, exploding privies and rags-to-riches stunts (SUNDAY TIMES)

Their story is chattily told... [and] full of relish for the escapades in it . . . Irresistible (FT MAGAZINE)

He has taken up one of the great stories of the period, a potent mix of romance, science and history . . . there is never a dull moment (DAILY TELEGRAPH)

Bodanis vindicates emilie impressively (LITERARY REVIEW)
