Ce livre est la transition parfaite entre la saga Harry Potter et la trilogie des Magiciens. [...] En plus de tout ça, on trouve, en vrac : des références culturelles géniales, l'utilisation de la technologie par les sorciers, une guerre inter-espèces, la lutte contre le sexisme, des super-héros discrets, quelques insultes bien envoyées [...] un roman one-shot à lire absolument pour tous ceux qui aiment la magie, les histoires de grands ados (les héros sont majeurs) et, ok, les histoires d'amour un peu.
Born in Chicago, Watson studied at the University of Chicago (BS) and Indiana University (Ph D) before going to Europe in the fall of 1951. After a year in Denmark, he moved to the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge, England, where he met Francis Crick. For their 1953 discovery of the double helix they, with Maurice Wilkins, were awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. In 1956, he became attached to the Biological Laboratories of Harvard University where he remained a member of its faculty until 1976. Earlier in 1968 he began serving also as Director of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory on Long Island, New York, and shifted its research focus to the study of cancer. Since 199, he has been its President. Between 1988 and 1992, he was associated with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) helping establish the Hunan Genome Project. In 1965 his seminal textbook The Molecular Biology of the Gene was published. With others he later helped create The Molecular Biology of the Cell (1983) and Recombinant DNA: A Short Course (1983).
