    1. Xeelee Vengeance is a book with some great ideas, but they were destroyed by the repetitive writing, extremely slow pace and complete lack of action It s not a book I d recommend and, in all honesty, it has pretty much put me off the author for good Michael Poole, Earth s greatest living engineer, changed the galaxy when he opened a worm hole to allow for quick and easy transportation across the solar system However, such a thing was created with a degree of naivety and a lack of foresight becau [...]

    2. It was ok I felt the characters were written very annoying, at least the ones that had any descriptions written about them There was not a single character to sympathize with, they all behaved like spoiled children And don t get me started on the Poole family , I never want to read another book with the word Poole in it.The story itself was passable, I guess, this omnipotent alien thing is really stupid though My main complaint is about the characters, they all suck extremely much.Writing this r [...]

    3. As much as I m loving the return to the Xeelee verse, and even though this definitely was an enjoyable read, I can t give this 5 stars The actions of certain actors just made so little sense to me it really undetermined suspension of disbelief.Rant full of spoilers view spoiler If an advanced alien craft that looks like it might be hostile comes through your wormhole, perhaps you might just want to consider closing the wormhole, before the rest of its armada comes through If an alien that establ [...]

    4. An ambitious story that has the potential of re writing much of the Xeelee sequence It is part one of a two book, as far as I know, series I ll have to read the sequel before I can give this an adequate review.

    5. Absolutely brilliant and beautiful.Breath taking characterisation, and Baxter managers to make physics understandable

    6. When I heard about this reboot , I was really surprised and wary of how it would go down Well loved it I can t recall any other Baxter book that felt so action packed He also worked of his descriptions and exposition into the action, which made for a really enjoyable read I think the point of this book is simply to explore how certain characters might have developed under different circumstances.
