Read full description of the books:
Stephen Baxter makes my brain hurt.
I read Raft and had a great time despite the hard science aspects that I'm not used to and now book two has melted my brain with a lot of talk of physics interwoven with a story of time travel and a background of interspecies war.
Once more Baxter has written a highly enjoyable novel peopled by interesting characters and full of fascinating ideas. The hard science aspect takes a little getting used to for people like me who aren't genius level scientists or whatever but I found once I had set my mind to "do not get overwhelmed" mode it all seemed to make sense as far as Baxters world building goes - scientific accuracy on the other hand is something I couldn't possibly comment on.
I could try describing the general storyline but it might get confusing, essentially however there's a manmade wormhole through time and various factions travels back through it to the point that it was conceived in a battle to save/destroy humanity. Happily for me this is not a space opera battle situation, I can't think of anything more boring than that. It does however take a look at the strength and weakness of the species against the passage of time and the meaning of life.
Much like with Raft it was a simple storyline and only 250 pages long, this is fine with me, Baxters longer novels are over 500 pages and I get the impression I may not make it through them all without a mental break.
For fans of hard science fiction I don't think you can go wrong with Baxter, he seems to be full of ideas and has a knack for describing bizarre scenarios. Definitely recommended.
