I started reading QuickSilver finally. So far it is very well done and I'm enjoying the style a lot. It took me a while to get past the present tense and the general wordiness, but now the whole book has grown on me. It's historical fiction, so definitely not up my normal route of books.

The book takes place in the 18th and 17th centuries and focuses on the development of the Royal Society. So basically, it centers on the developments of math and science in that time period. I'm a mathematician so it is right up my alley. :)
