Not all that Science Fiction nor a great story. Mostly a Greek Island travel log.
OK good hard science fiction with space ships battles. Sometime not enough believeable as he forgets about how gravity works in space.
Pretty good hard science fiction until the hero-nerd goes to the alien’s planet and he becomes a hero-hero.
A bit too kiddie for me, but OK SF.
Book one of A Time Odyssey. Cannot wait for the next in the series.
Tried to re-read this book after reading it as a teenager. To slow and lots of the SF was no longer believable.
A bit slow for me and not so belieable.
The cyborg like integration of hard and wet memories is very cool. The SF world created would be a cool one to live in and not too far fetched. The political/social aspects of the world is way too negative for me.
The story moves at a good pace.
Working to explode a star to make worm hole gateways, and nanotech to regenerate body parts makes a fairly believable SF world. The surprise ending was not a surprise.
The story moves at a decent pace and the readability only drags 2-3 times.
SF books don t get better than this one. Firmly based in real science. You only need to suspend disbelief so that the Mars trip can be privately financed. Given Space One recent accomplishments, why not.
The connection between the Hopie Indian and Mars was a nice surprise.
