Description

The 15th anniversary edition of a brilliant, action-packed and gripping novel of Charles Darwin’s voyage on the Beagle – longlisted for the Man Booker Prize. New introduction from Daisy Goodwin.

‘A master storyteller’ Sunday Times

In 1831 Charles Darwin set off in HMS Beagle under the command of Captain Robert Fitzroy on a voyage that would change the world. This is the story of a deep friendship between two men, and the twin obsessions that tear them apart, leading one to triumph, and the other to disaster.

‘An outstandingly good first novel. A page-turning action-adventure combined with subtle intellectual arguments. The meticulous research enriches this fascinating tale’ Sunday Telegraph
