This review is from: Moonseed (Paperback)
I love this book. It's brilliantly written with the best use of science of in any Sci-fi book I have ever read. The characters are excellent and described to perfection.
The idea of the book, Earth being destroyed by the introduction of an exterestrial bacteria, is truly scary. The way Baxter handles the destruction and fear in the population is beautiful.
So, your wondering why only the four stars. The answer is simple. The end is a let down which leaves a sour taste in your mouth just when you should feel great. It's not that what happens is bad, just that it's not given its full justice. It's rushed, nothing more. More description and explanation would have been welcome.
But don't let this put you off too much. this is still a great book using great science and is well worth reading.
