    One thought on “A Invenção de Leonardo

    1. William on said:

      Fabulous fun, literate and imaginative, with a wonderful set of characters, many are famous and yet altered by the genius of DaVinci as engineer rather than painter. Florence is brought alive as a steampunk industrial powerhouse. An unlikely and vastly likeable hero strides through this upheaval and a central mystery is wonderfully woven by Master McAuley. I enjoyed every page, and the more familiar you are with the history of science and the Renaissance, the more delightful this alternate histo [...]

      A tradução portuguesa é muito má, com múltiplos erros ortográficos e muito má construção frásica. Isto questiona-me sobre a seriedade da editora portuguesa Saída de Emergência. Quanto ao que pude apurar do que li, menos de metade, com uma premissa que me tinha atraído imenso, parece ter servido apenas de pano de fundo a uma historieta de crimes e diz-que-disse. Mas como digo, com uma tradução deste calibre torna-se difícil aferir o real potencial do livro.

      If you have a bookshelf containing Sterling/Gibson’s The Difference engine, Eco’s Name of the Rose, Poe’s “Murders in the Rue Morgue”, Hammett’s Maltese Falcon, Chandler’s The Big Sleep and Powers’s Anubis Gates then throw this on that shelf as this book references and encapsulates all of them (after you’ve finished it of course) or you have been fascinated by Da Vinci’s technology then find this book. My first McAuley and I’m kicking myself for taking this long to get arou [...]

      I have a suspicion that while most critics liked this book, most readers will not if they are not previously acquainted with Renaissance History, or the History of the Medici or Florence. It seems to me that the author relies a lot on reader knowledge of the period about which he's writing, so if you aren't up on your history, this may cause a problem. Lucky for me Savaronola is one of my favorite historical bad guys and that I love reading about Renaissance history.But this book is not just ano [...]

      My next book. I've snuck a peek, but I still need to finish "S & S" first. Interesting, I thought that this was a well-known fantasy book, but according to the numbers of reviews and ratings, not so much. My review will probably go up onto the first page. When I get into writing it, that is.Moving on a little last night, but my "primary" read is still "Sense and Sensibility." Very interesting to see how the author builds up a credible alternative history(mainly based on technological innovat [...]

      I first read McAuley's cyberpunk-meets-fantasy-epic trilogy 'Confluence,' liked it a lot, so I got his novel 'Fairyland.' That didn't really do it for me - to the extent that I considered not reading 'Pasquale's Angel' - but I am now very glad that I did read it!'Pasquale's Angel' is Renaissance-meets-steampunk: in an alternate-history, industrialized Italy, plots and murder are afoot. Pasquale, a young artists' apprentice, is dragged into events when an apprentice of the visiting master Raphael [...]

      An alternative history set in an industrialized Florence during the Renaissance. A young painter and Niccolo Macchiavelli (who is a hard-drinking journalist in this alternate Italy) become embroiled in Florentine intrigue as they attempt to solve the murders of a prominent painter and his assistant. I liked this. The mystery takes more of a a back seat to the alternate history, which is well-visualized. I don't know enough about the history of Florence to fully appreciate the changes, but I enjo [...]

      This reminds me quite a lot of The Anubis Gates, both in its strengths and its flaws. There's fantastic world-building, clever alternate histories, and swash-buckling adventure. Unfortunately, there's also confusing plotting, a queasy relationship with magic, and problematic women/minorities. Plus, phantasmagoric evil clowns on stilts.Italy in the late 1400s and early 1500s contained an amazing confluence of brilliant people, and basically all of them show up in this novel. In this alternate his [...]

      "In every room, glass chandeliers were filled with luminous tapers, like so many burning bushes slung under high plaster ceilings where friezes of putti and cherubs frolicked in buttocky profusion." (p. 334)BUTTOCKY PROFUSION.Think about it.

    10. Ricardo Moreira on said:

      Aqui está uma verdadeira desilusão.Começando pela história, ao contrário do que o texto da contracapa me fez crer quando comprei este livro, o universo paralelo em que a história se desenvolve, com a sua revolução industrial em pleno Renascimento, consequência da construção das máquinas desenhadas por Leonardo da Vinci, apenas serve de cenário de fundo. Tudo o mais poderia ter ocorrido no nosso universo, fosse no Renascimento, na Era Industrial ou na actualidade. Mesmo o modelo func [...]

    11. Nicolas on said:

      Les conjurés de Florence est une uchronie dans la Florence de Léonard de Vinci. Une Florence assez différente puisque Vinci n’y a jamais peint la moindre toile, mais s’est consacré au contraire à la science, ce qui donne des inventions assez loufoques (souvent), parfois utiles, mais surtout qui n’apportent somme toute pas grand chose à l’histoire. Car, pour le dire clairement, l’uchronie n’a ici aucune espèce d’intérêt. On y croise bien sûr, de manière anecdotique, une o [...]

      Originally published on my blog here in February 2001.What might have happened if Leonardo da Vinci had concentrated exclusively on engineering, creating working versions of many of the devices he sketched? That is the intriguing idea behind Pasquale's Angel, which is set in a sixteenth century where these devices have precipitated an Industrial Revolution centred on Florence.The central character of the novel is apprentice artist Pasquale, who becomes involved in momentous events after meeting [...]

    13. Thomson Kneeland on said:

      "Pasquale's Angel" is my second foray into Paul McCauley's writing, having previously read his science fiction work "The Quiet War", which I immensely enjoyed. I am not a big fan of historical fiction, and though this novel featured the potentially gratuitous use of Raphael, Machiavelli, Leonardo DaVinci written into an alternate history, the plot transcended and justified the use of those characters. I was pretty enraptured by the mystery and suspense created in the first half of the book, but [...]

    14. Matthew Fray on said:

      Really imaginative bit of alternative history which nowadays would fall into the Steampunk genre. Making creative use of a vivid period of history - renaissance Italy - telling an exciting story with famous (alternative) characters of the period But plotted in a confusing way. Although this gives the feel of a Chandleresque labyrinth which you can get lost in.

    15. Bill Newland on said:

      One of my favourite alternate histories, it convincingly paints Florence in the Renaissance as the hub of an industrial revolution. The inclusion of Machiavelli as a journalist and Leonardo DaVinci as engineer rather than painter serves the story and plot well.

    16. Patrícia on said:

      Por séculos, Leonardo Da Vinci tem sido tema das mais espantosas conspirações, foi actor e orquestrador das mais variadas situações ligadas aos maiores segredos da Humanidade, sendo ele próprio um deles. Um génio para lá da sua época, uma mente deslocada em séculos de aprendizagem e de ideias, este tem sido o homem sobre se tem mais falado e escrito durante a nossa era.Neste livro é nos prometida uma Revolução Industrial em pleno Renascimento com todos os nomes sonantes que caracter [...]

    17. Ian McKinley on said:

      This book has an interesting setting, giving it an extra star in my rating; it's sort of an early industrial revolution renaissance Florence, where great painters and sculptors ride around in steam carriages and shoot rockets at one another. While interesting, the setting's quirk is a conceit that doesn't seem to have influenced the society in which the story takes place if steam engines and rockets exist, why isn't the broader society benefitting from cheaper clothes (the artist who is the cen [...]

      Est-ce qu'il y a une catégorie "je n'arrive pas à le terminer" sur ? Voilà j'en ai lu la moitié et je ne parviens pas du tout à accrocher à ce livre peut être que c'est le genre qui ne m'intéresse pas, c'est la première fois que j'essaie un ouvrage de ce type (uchronie) ; ou peut être que je suis trop accrochée à la ville de Florence et à ses "célébrités" pour les voir évoluer d'une façon complètement fantaisiste et que je ne parviens pas à cause de cela à profiter pleineme [...]

      The books name in portuguese did trick me into thinking of something completly different of what the book turned out to be. A part from the awful tittle translation, the book is nice. I didn't love it, but it's not a bad reading.
