A novel of ideas – comical, historical, frightening and unputdownable.
Michael Young is a brilliant young history student whose life is changed when he meets Leo Zuckerman, an ageing physicist with a theory that can change worlds. Together they realise that they have the power to alter history and eradicate a great evil. But tinkering with timelines is more dangerous than they can imagine and nothing - past, present or future - will ever be the same again.
Making History is funny, moving, romantic and told with Stephen Fry's characteristic skill and brilliance.
Stephen Fry at his twinkling best
His best novel yet ... an extravagant, deeply questioning work of science fiction
A sci-fi comedy that is also a time-travel thriller, constantly topical and always surprising... packed with the author's personal enthusiasm and hatreds, the former red-hot and the latter icy-black
A powerful imaginative pull that keeps the pages turning while the tea goes cold and the cat gets the goldfish
A sprightly and entertaining read
