[Novel] Manifold: Space (Stephen Baxter)

Manifol Space

As someone who comes from a scientific background, I love all things hard science fiction, and I absolutely adored Manifold:Time, but Stephen Baxter, in my opinion, went a step too far with Space, discarding even basic stuff like characters and plot for science and ideas.

I’m not sure if you can even call Manifold: Space a story at this point— rather, it’s a compilation of scientific ideas of completely insane scale with barely anything tying them together.

Positive: Negative:
Full of fascinating, insanely grand scientific ideas about space Almost no plot or story
Grounded in legit, diamond hard science Characters exist solely to narrate exposition
