Customer Reviews

And exposure to artificial light at night has been cited as a factor in health concerns ranging from poor sleep to cancer. Showing exactly what we've lost, what we have left, and what we might hope to regain, he attempts nothing less than a restoration of how we see the spectacularly primal, wildly dark night sky.

Part elegy, part call-to-arms, The End of Night feels like an essential addition to the literature of nature. Bogard will leave readers in awe of darkness and in admiration of his book. The End of Night delivers a forceful An engaging blend of personal story, hard science and a bit of history. The thoughtfulness with which Bogard considers such broadly diverse issues as the impact of working the night shift and the persecution of bats, quintessential creatures of the night, is inspiring Smart, surprising, and thoroughly enjoyable.

KIRKUS REVIEW

As you read it, you too will want to reclaim the night and perhaps rediscover the heavens of the Enlightenment. Many thanks to Paul Bogard for searching out the dark spots and reminding us to celebrate them!

Paul Bogard offers a brilliantly illuminating history and a badly needed reminder that we have been blind to the death of night. Peppered with illuminating insights I always looked, always took that little peek through the curtains after a nighttime visit to the bathroom. That great unknown that lay beyond what I could see represented a different world, a wilder world than the one I spent most of my days in, and that touched the childish part of me that was still full of wonder.

The End of Night: Searching for Natural Darkness in an Age of Artificial Light by Paul Bogard

I grew up, of course, and my grandparents sold the farm. Those memories of having some grand sense of the universe, of a world that is so much larger than the one we abide in most of our days.

  • What's Inside;

Bogard is clearly besotted with the night sky, and his book shows that in elegant prose that often touches on the poetic and frequently quotes it. Well worth a read for anyone who has ever gazed up at the stars and felt that sense of wonder, and who values that feeling and wants to preserve it for generations to come.
