'Australian writer Tim Flannery is a man of dazzling talents: scientist, climate change activist, academic, explorer. In his latest book, Europe, he also turns time-traveller, invoking HG Wells' fictional invention as he first sets the dials to whizz back 100 million years, before the continent had begun to emerge as a separate entity.' * NZ Noted *
'The story of the continent's infancy and growth is expertly and engagingly told' * London Review of Books *
'Tim Flannery is a masterly narrator. He describes the development of flora, fauna, landscape and climate, of assassin snails and plesiosaurs right up to the appearance of homo sapiens so vividly that you become an eye witness...the further you read, this nonfiction book becomes a novel. It's a wonderful natural history of Europe and of the region on our planet that would become Europe.' * Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung *
