Rezension

James Gleick, author of The Information
Don t be fooled by the word comic. Sydney Padua tells a story that is tender, passionate, and true.

Charles Petzold, author of Code and The Annotated Turing
"So there. The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage is learned, clever, funny, and above all very silly in the best sense of the word."

Publishers Weekly (starred review)
The immensity of Padua s research and the wit and allusions of her prose are striking, saying as much about what drove her to explore the possibilities of her protagonists relationship as about the protagonists themselves. Permeated by delightful illustrations, obsessive foot- and endnotes, and a spirit of genuine inventiveness, it s an early candidate for the year s best.

Martha Cornog, Library Journal
Padua s extravaganza is very much for the whimsical intelligentsia and will speak to those interested in computers or math who will delight in the abundant background materials.

Bookpage
Sydney Padua s impeccably researched, yet playfully imagined graphic biography is a treat for history buffs and graphic novel lovers alike With fantastically detailed art, footnotes and diagrams , this is a whimsical graphic account like no other.

Margaret Quamme, The Columbus Dispatch
Reading The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage is like auditing a dozen high-level, inventively taught college classes simultaneously: more than a little overwhelming yet fascinating.

Etelka Lehoczky, NPR.org
Sydney Padua s new book is definitely Yowza! material.

Discover Magazine
An outlandish, enlightening tale.

Nancy Szokan, Washington Post
Informative and entertaining . . . . It s a book that makes you a lot smarter as it makes you laugh.

The Takeaway
Novelist Sydney Padua has found quite a pair: the girl with the unstoppable brain; the male inventor 24 years her senior, part-poet, part-genius; this Victorian odd couple, dedicated to crime foiling and cleverness, is easily worthy of Holmes and Watson with a title to match.

Maria Popova, BrainPickings.org
Immensely delightful and illuminating a masterwork of combinatorial genius and a poetic analog to its subject matter.
