Measuring the World Kindle Edition

4.0 out of 5 stars 208 ratings


Product description

Review

Measuring the World has proved nothing less than a literary sensation... the novel has sold more than 600,000 copies in Germany, knocking J K Rowling and Dan Brown off the bestseller lists ... it is the most successful German novel since Patrick Suskind's Perfume ... 31-year-old Daniel Kehlmann is a literary wunderkind already being compared to Nabokov and Proust' Guardian --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

From AudioFile

Daniel Kehlmann's novel tells two interrelated stories based on real-life figures. Explorer Alexander von Humboldt travels South America's Orinoco basin, and German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss studies the world through calculation and observation. Rider Strong brings excitement and drama to both stories--in Humboldt's case, an adventure story; in Gauss's case, a tale of personal loss as he copes with the deaths of his wife and child. Strong brings touches of humor as well, as he reads anecdotes about Humboldt's hallucinations atop a mountain and Gauss's mathematical thoughts on his wedding night. Strong's narration brings a human touch to a larger-than-life story of scientific discovery and politics.
