"Joven has put together a fine recipe for a thriller."
A novel of the Voynich mystery, The Book of God and Physics is a gripping, fascinating, and eminently intelligent literary thriller akin to the genre-bending masterworks of Michael Gruber and the "secret histories" of Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code et al). Author Enrique Joven centers his compelling, fast moving story around a very real historical artifact--the indecipherable Voynich Manuscript--and spins an extraordinary tale that asks whether legendary scientific figures (Brahe, Koeppler, Galileo, Copernicus) might have hidden some of their secrets within its pages.
"Joven has put together a fine recipe for a thriller . . . .The science and history lessons come fast and furious . . . Luckily, Joven's lively expository prose (given in Dolores M. Koch's smooth and efficient translation) stops the book from collapsing under its own weight." -- Washington Post
