A cracking read...Greene serves up plenty of revelatory detail...
If you want to know how everything got here and where it's going,
read this book. -- Stephen Bleach * Sunday Times *
Until the End of Time is encyclopaedic in its ambition and its erudition, often heartbreaking, stuffed with too many profundities that I wanted to quote, as well as anecdotes from Greene's own life - of which we should wish for more - that had me laughing ... A love letter to the ephemeral cosmic moment when everything is possible. -- Dennis Overbye * New York Times *
A writer of exceptional clarity and charm -- Oliver Sacks
He is both a skilled and kindly explicator. His excitement for science on the threshold of vital breakthroughs is extremely contagious * The New York Times *
The new Hawking only better * The Times *
Few living writers write so lucidly ... Greene might be the best intermediary I've found between the sparkling, absolute zero world of mathematics and the warm, clumsy world of human language * Boston Globe *
If extraterrestrials landed tomorrow and demanded to know what the human mind is capable of accomplishing, we could do worse than to hand them a copy of this book * The New York Times (on The Hidden Reality) *
