Cramer splendidly cemonstrates just how fascinating and mind-boggling real science can be.
This book was quite unlike any others I have ever read! Although it can be extremely scientific at times and a bit difficult to understand, the underlying story is exceptionally intriguing and contains many twists and turns that made me not want to put the book down. If you are interested in science fiction or enjoy stories that have enough 'scientific support' to make them believable, this book is for you!
I almost didn't read this book because I ,like the author, was disappointed with the cancellation of the superconducting supercollider. But now, after reading it, I understand why we couldn't, or shouldn't, build it. We wouldn't want to let the Hive in would we? Good hard Sci-Fi, I'm really glad I read it.
Very interesting concept. Good book.
A bit tedious at first with, IMHO, too many details about the SSC and associated physics, but I persisted and was rewarded by an excellent story, although I thought the time travel twist was a little too contrived. All in all, I'm glad I read the book, and will look for others by John Cramer.
