Darwinia: A Novel of a Very Different Twentieth Century
In 1912, history was changed by the Miracle, when the old world of Europe was replaced by Darwinia, a strange land of nightmarish jungle and antediluvian monsters. To some, the Miracle was an act of divine retribution; to others, it is an opportunity to carve out a new empire.
Leaving an America now ruled by religious fundamentalists, young Guilford Law travels to Darwinia on a mission of discovery that will take him further than he can possibly imagine...to a shattering revelation about mankind's destiny in the universe.
Robert Charles Wilson has crafted a brilliant science fiction novel--a view of an utterly different 20th century.
Darwinia is a 1999 Hugo Award Nominee for Best Novel.

Had a real Jules Verne feel to it. I enjoyed the writing style and suspense that was added. Would recommend to early science fiction fans. Read full review

It's rare that a book can take such an 'out there' idea and make it work, and populate it with characters you actually care about. Fascinating, thought-provoking, exactly as science fiction should be. Read full review
