I liked the book, the plot and the characters but it was spoiled somewhat by the academic manner everything is explained. Possibly the authors background taking over but I would have preferred the explanations between adults to be more free and easy

The main character, Professor Paul Woodbridge, is interesting, funny and quirky. He has a tendency to go off on a tangent at the drop of a hat........ his head so full of information he seems to have a problem keeping it in. As he and the contessa travel in search of Galileo's final message, the reader is taken on a guided tour through Italy. Paul's narratives are so descriptive, it is easy to visualize each place that the characters visit and will make you want to hop on a plane to visit Italy!
