[Novel] Inherit the Stars (James P. Hogan)

Inherit the StarsA fascinating hard science fiction tale that argues the fantastical  — 50,000 thousand year old dead human bodies on the Moon, planets that never existed in the solar system, an alternate history of our species origin  — yet somehow manages to still ground everything in legitimate science. The only thing it lacks is compelling characters, but that’s a failing almost universal in hard science fiction.

Positive: Negative:
Full of fascinating scientific and anthropological ideas Forgettable, almost negligible characters
Mystery after mystery makes it nearly impossible to put the book down
Thought provoking on human nature
Grounded in legitimate science
