The first novel of Kage Baker's critically acclaimed, much-loved series, the Company, introduces us to a world where the future of commerce is the past.

In the 24th century, the Company preserves works of art and extinct forms of life (for profit of course). It recruits orphans from the past, renders them all but immortal, and trains them to serve the Company, Dr. Zeus, Inc. One of these is Mendoza, the botanist. She is sent to Elizabethan England to collect samples from the garden of Sir Walter Iden. But while there, she meets Nicholas Harpole, with whom she falls in love. And that love sounds great bells of change which will echo down the centuries, and through the succeeding novels of the Company.

Breathtakingly detailed and written with great aplomb, In the Garden of Iden is a contemporary classic of the science-fiction genre.

Listener Opinions

    " Recommended read. This is a clever take on the Adam & Eve myth, and gets pretty metaphysical about it once you start picking out the story points in the myth. "

    " The first novel of The Company. You'd think it would be difficult to relate to a set of characters who are basically perfect immortals thanks to technology, but somehow Kage Baker manages it. A fun read--highly recommended for those who enjoy Connie Willis's time travel books. "

    " Interesting take on time travel paradox. I'm intrigued enough to read the next few. "

    " This sad story of a young girl's first love, where she opens herself up heart and soul, lies in the unlikely intersection of science fiction and historical fiction. Mendoza starts off her first assignment working for the company, saving soon-to-be-extinct plant species, as she slowly discovers that she and her friends may be causing more harm than good. Along the way, the author has interesting things to say about age and the limited range of personalities. "
