Puzzling and entrancing
The first half of the book is a swashbuckling narrative of what passed for "science" in past centuries. It was captivating and very entertaining.
The later portion is a more dream-like situation (beyond any reality) that was also entertaining, but very whimsical and quite odd.
Many readers may find that they object to this very strange juxtaposition. I was entranced throughout.

What made the experience of listening to The Island of the Day Before the most enjoyable?
Tim Curry. What a yummy voice, like butter on toast.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
My knowledge of 17th history is patchy at best, therefore following the part of the plot set during the war was a struggle. Still I managed to understand the general scheme of things and am sure I'm a much more well-rounded person for it.
Which scene was your favorite?
The friendship between Roberto and the priest on the Daphne. Especially moving was the
part where the priest descends into the ocean in
If you could rename The Island of the Day Before, what would you call it?
Perfect title. Would leave it as is.
Any additional comments?
Did I mention I salivate at the sound of Tim Curry's voice? Also I've developed a burning desire to learn more about the discovery of longitude.
