    1. McDevitt s first Priscilla Hutchins novel is a sturdy, nicely paced archeological mystery Scattered throughout the galaxy are alien relics left behind by beings known only as the Monument Makers, and the secret of their origin may herald a terrifying future disaster for mankind.Personal relationships are not McDevitt s forte, as his clumsy handling of Priscilla s romantic life can attest Thankfully, the search for the Monument Makers is a fascinating one, and the outcome offers sufficient specta [...]

    2. This is a hard science fiction novel, with a well defined plot and set of characters The best thing this book has going for it, is its focus on archaeology, and the deciphering of clues from ancient alien artifacts The entire story is a mystery, and even by the end of the book the puzzle is only partially solved This, of course, allows the author to extend the story into sequels So, this is the first book of The Academy series.I especially enjoy science fiction books that contain unique, futuris [...]

    3. Rating 2.5 starsIs there a requirement that a hard SF author can t write believable characters or dialog to save their life Or, rather, considering the general level of education and IQ among that crowd, is it a conspiracy so that they can chortle over the nearly inevitable comment in any review of their books about the simplistic characters and amateurish dialog Well, no matter I picked up a copy of The Engines of God at a library booksale for 50 cents so I can t complain too vociferously I kne [...]

    4. I asked for recommendations for good sci fi and this was on the list I can t say I agree.Partly it s the setting two hundred years in the future, but that odd sort of future which is just like 1995 with a couple of future y things added The telephones have video and there are faxes, but now they go faster than light Are there really science minded writers who think that the modern world is just like the early 19th century The lack of characterization is typical for science fiction, so I was will [...]

    5. Quite a cool book, and it s only just the beginning of a series I am excited to read It s an interstellar archaeological mystery, but also a futuristic procedural novel following the working lives of archaeologists, scientists, and auxillary crewmembers I love this kind of thing see also Julie Czerneda s Species Imperative trilogy, which follows future biologists through their working lives The future McDevitt invents for humanity feels rather realistic, with tons of problems still existing on E [...]

    6. What bugs me about this book is that I read the sequel, Deepsix, first That pretty much kills the mystery that unfolds in this book McDevitt s greatest skill is his ability to weave a mystery into an action novel The characters aren t stock, but they aren t outstanding either the main character develops in later books , and the point is really to experience alien cultures and try to work out what happened to the ones that disappeared or died out This isn t just space adventure, it s archaeology [...]

    7. This one is frustratingFirst of all.i hate it when when a male writer tries to decipher the female psyche would she translate the subtle hints and looks and touchs.unless he took it to street and made an a extensive survey.I won t buy it ,and I don t like itAnd that is mainly why I don t like female lead Written by maleSecondlyme assholes out there finds ok to summarize the fate of the entire cast of the book in half a page show us that in the grand scheme of thingsl what you have just read does [...]

    8. by Jack McDevitt, published in 1994.There is something I really, really like about a mystery science fiction, especially if that mystery comes from a long vanished alien race.Well, this novel, The Engines of God is just such a novel It seems that thousands of years ago, when humanity was just picking up sticks and learning how to brain each other with them, an advanced alien race was busy building incredible monuments in the galaxy.We follow Hutch, a spaceship pilot, as she travels with archaeol [...]

    9. The Earth is facing environmental catastrophe in the 23rd century Humans have spread to other star systems, but generally not found a lot of Earth like planets, and those they have found are already inhabited A handful of intelligent alien races have been discovered, but all are primitive compared to humanity Most alien races discovered, however, are long dead, and the most prominent is one that apparently traveled to other stars, as their monuments have been found across the galaxy.Earth has ge [...]

    10. This sounds like something I would love ET archeology Space travel and McDevitt must be popular enough to take up a lot of space on the bookstore shelves, but I just couldn t get into it I m not entirely sure why It could be, as some other reviewers have noted, that the world circa 2200 seems way too much like the world circa 1995 when this was written Also, the whole novel and the archeologists therein seems to apply a model of a society s progress to the entire universe based on the history of [...]

    11. I ve managed to pick up half a dozen Jack McDevitt novels over the years, but never managed to read one until now The Engines of God is one of his earliest novels, and it showcases what I love about science fiction, and what I hate It s a few hundred years in the future, and we ve discovered monuments on planets and moons around the solar system The book makes use of a few set pieces to move scientists and archaeologists toward finding out what those monuments are and what they mean We don t get [...]

    12. The story is set in the year 2203 Earth is struggling with overpopulation, its natural resources are pretty well depleted, the effects of global warming have set in, and scientists realize that its days are numbered And so they start looking for other planets where humanity can settle At the same time, explorers have discovered one, then many statues on other planets that appear to be monuments to one if not several alien races The language is for the most part indecipherable, and archeologists [...]

    13. The Engines of God, by Jack McDevitt, is a powerful and fascinating science fiction novel by the Campbell Award and Nebula Award winning science fiction writer and one of my favorite authors A group of twenty third century scientists excavate and study extinct civilizations on planets in extremely distant solar systems FTL space travel and many other scientific advances have enabled the discovery and exploration of these planets where alien civilizations once flourished Unfortunately, only mater [...]

    14. This one gets a good 4 Stars for a great space mystery story, enigmas in space archeology Recently within the past few thousand years space going civilizations have disappeared Traces of violent action are found but are unclear Great space monuments are found The archeology team is exploring ruins on an earth like planet scheduled for terraforming to enable future human occupation The story suffered from an artificial pace, the science team must evacuate so nuclear explosives can melt the icecap [...]

    15. Humanity has achieved starflight Expeditions have found mysterious monuments from several civilizations Most intriguing is the evidence of extinction events which have occured repeatedly and independently on various worlds We follow pilot Priscilla Hutch Hutchins and various archeologists and linguists as they try to solve the puzzle.The plot is certainly engaging, and well laid out The characters are well described, although some felt two dimensional McDevitt takes a good stab at sense of wonde [...]

    16. This is book 1 of a 6 book series known as The Academy Novels aka the Priscilla Hutchins Novels Sadly for me, I read book 5 first, not knowing any difference But, it really didn t make much difference except I know where Priscilla Hutchins is in her career.This is a very good book and a treat to read McDevitt has been praised by other Sci fi authors as being one of the bestd I could not agree I like his works very much.This book introduces us to outer space archaeology, where Hutch is a a star [...]

    17. I have revisited this series a number of times I very much admire the super luminal Captain Priscilla Hutchins working for the Academy of the Sciences She seems to read people well, and although her line of work can be risky, she handles things with confidence and saves lives when she can She gives her own opinions during discussions with scientists and holds her own Most importantly, she is creative and curious, not a bureaucratic automaton, so she ends up going on unexpected adventures PThis f [...]

    18. Damn That was good 5 stars if the ending had been better This had almost everything I like in scifi space opera very well done ancient alien races archaeology and digs on alien worlds, space rescue and survival in extreme situations, epic scope of long dead view spoiler or are they hide spoiler alien races, adventure, a bit of love story etc etc etc I loved it And have already started the sequel The ending very abrupt, and the second book hasn t really solved anything yet but it s early days yet [...]

    19. Mi primera incursi n en los libros de Jack McDevitt ha sido una absoluta decepci n Me esperaba algo m s de lo que ha primera vista parecen aventuras y arqueolog a espacial Las m quinas de Dios no ha logrado mantener mi atenci n en casi ninguna p gina Los misterios que plantea apenas me han interesado Y es que la trama apenas avanza y cuando lo hace, es muy lentamente.En fin, espero que mi siguiente incursi n en la ciencia ficci n de McDevitt logre atraparme m s, porque lo que ha sido esta histor [...]

    20. Even though I had read books 3 6 in the series previously, this novel which effectively sets up the entire universe of the story, still had me on the edge of my seat.Nobody does xenoarchaeology like Jack McDevit, yet somehow the massive scale of the story never retracted from fully realized characters.It drags slightly in 3rd quarter, but massively delivers in the 4th This guy can write one hell of a conclusion.

    21. Jack McDevitt is one of my current favorites He loves to build an great adventure story with fantasic female heroes Don t fall in love with any character though as that s the one you will lose.I HIGHLY recommend if you are a sci fi fan

    22. This was the first McDevitt book I ve read and I m impressed He visualizes the technology of 2 centuries ahead without getting bogged down in how it all works The interstellar travel and protective energy fields are just enabling factors to weave a really good tale He lets the complexities develop and uses believable characters The plot expands in unexpected ways and has a terrific finale This author is gifted at describing literally other worldly scenes and events I am looking forward to the ne [...]

    23. My review which ran at SFFaudio.Climate change has Earth on the brink of disaster The only viable solution is terraforming other planets to ensure survival For a small group of archaeologists, however, terraforming is the worst possible solution The only suitable planet is also the one planet with the most promising artifacts of an unknown alien race Known as the Monument Makers, the aliens buildings feature a seemingly uncrackable code on them The team is looking for the alien equivalent of the [...]

    24. Ce roman nous raconte les aventures d une pilote de vaisseau et de ses camarades d exp dition, la recherche d artefacts d une suppos e civilisation intelligente et des traces qu elle aurait pu laisser J tais au d but de ma lecture tout fait enthousiasm par ce roman et par l ambiance qui s en d gageait En effet, cette exploration de reliques extra terrestres par une quipe purement scientifique me rappelait deux tr s bons romans Le moineau de Dieu pour le c t assez amateur de la mission mise en pl [...]

    25. This book was a tale of two parts and puts on a furious rally in the end to crawl up to 4 stars At times it seemed like the longest set up for something, but with no idea what it will be, you wonder if the author knew Then archaeologists started dying senselessly Somewhat satisfying as that was in it s way nothing against archaeologists, but some weird violence at last and reminiscent of Lennngen versus the ants , it also seemed kind of pointless Then we find out how cruel the entire galaxy is, [...]

    26. The Engines of God is a well written, well paced alien archeological adventure It s somewhat of a niche topic, but xenon archeology and the idea of exploring the relics and spaceships of an extinct race is something that always catches my eye but is difficult to find However, here it is done well and now becomes, in my opinion, one of the top books in that field alongside Revelation Space and Broken Angels own xeno archeology but whereas it was a side part of those stories, here it takes centre [...]

    27. McDevitt has created a terrific little niche of space archaeology that s all his own with the Alex Benedict books and the Priscilla Hutchins series This is the first volume of the Priscilla Hutchins series, and I enjoyed it very much despite having previously read later volumes This one feels two books than one, in that there s an adventure and conclusion just about exactly half way through, and then they re off to a second planet The stories are told with the flavor of adventurous mystery stor [...]

    28. I do like this book It has a good story, compelling and believable characters, and a star Priscilla Hutchins worth building a series of books around in fact, McDevitt does.I think the premise is compelling archaeology done on ancient, highly advanced and now extinct alien civilizations on the outer fringes of the galaxy The dialog is realistic, the interplay between the scientists is fairly believable as research banter, and you grow to care about the characters.However, this is not a work of ha [...]

    29. I generally do not care for Mystery novels, being of a general Sci Fi Action or Fantasy Action fan I have really enjoyed the Alex Benedict novels, so have been giving Jack McDevitt s other works a try In Engines of God the author sets up this universe, and primary character, that I grew to enjoy, despite the cliche d nature of her Small so scrappy, wants to do life her way, not the way anyone thinks she should, etc.In this novel Hutch visits a planet with some archaeologists to try and understa [...]

    30. In The Engines of God a team of archaeologists are forced off a planet just as they are on the verge of making the discovery of a lifetime Listening in audiobook, I honestly can t remember the names of any characters except Hutch the pilot I m not going to look them up, not out of laziness, but because they don t matter This is not a book about characters Each character has a name, a profession, and a quirk Hutch is a pilot who is friendly There s a xenophilologist who is stuck up.Heck, I can t [...]
