Price: $2.32
In Victorian London, the winds of change blow through the silent streets as Charles Darwin becomes increasingly embroiled in the battle between tradition and progress, contemplating a reality that he alone can see. The lives of the three main protagonists; Charles Darwin, Emma Darwin and Captain Robert FitzRoy, and their stories interweave as they face their personal struggles with reason and religion. All the while in the shadows looms The Brotherhood, a secret society that promotes atheism and rationality in the name of progress, and plays an integral part in all three of the protagonist’s lives. Savré, an elder of the Brotherhood, becomes Charles’ guide and saviour as he leads him to become an important icon in his battle against religion. All the while Charles remains unaware of the alchemical powers of The Brotherhood and their covert agenda to control society until he becomes embroiled in the darkness himself.

    The Struggle for Existence is a brilliantly executed epic narrative of Charles Darwin's life and personal struggles to refine his famous work on the theory of evolution. It follows a young enthusiastic Darwin with barely any idea of where his thoughts would lead him, up to middle-age when he is befallen with personal struggles, then onto old age when after the success of his work, he looks back and reflects upon the possible consequences of the work on future generations. Darwin's personal issues about faith are hardly spoken of but in this book we find him quizzing whether or not he really intended to banish God from the picture. This book is a clever reenactment of a godly figure who revolutionised the way that science operates, and a breath of fresh air upon the mundane debates that are currently held on the topic. In this rivetingg dramatisation we see not that towering figure, but a man on the verge of break-down. Sophia Alba takes us on a journey and explores the hidden depth of... More > Darwin's thinking by transfusing it with the darker arts of the vampires and alchemists where the aim is to immortalise not just body, but mind too. If there is any truth to it, then certainly, Darwin has been immortalised in mind. Highly recommended.< Less
