Human society on Jevlen was falling apart -- and it looked as if JEVEX, the immense super-computer that managed all Jevlenese affairs, was at the heart of the matter. Except that the problems didn't stop when JEVEX was shut down. People were changing -- or being changed. It was almost as if the Jevlenese were being possessed...

Meanwhile, in a very different universe, where

Wow, it took me from the 28th of July to the 2nd of August to read this book. That’s really a long time for me. It has nothing to do with the book though but rather due to the fact that we constantly seem to be doing things that keep me away from my reading during the summer holidays. Rather the inverse from what I expected.

Anyway, this book in the Giants series wanders quite far from the original. It starts of like the previous book but it never really recovers from its nose dive into a more tr

I did like the first two Giants novels. Hogan's writing could be somewhat clunky and a bit dry in scientific detail, but the imagination and play with scientific ideas are often first rate. I found that redeeming in the first two novels. I was majorly annoyed in the third novel though when the conspiracy angle came up. That probably didn't leave me in a very forgiving mood going into this fourth novel, written over a decade after the first three. It just got way too eye-rolling ridiculous for me ...more

A continuation of the Giants series set after that does a pretty good job of asking the age old question - Just what is consciousness.

Awesomely innovative. A worthy book in the "Giants" saga. Hard scifi that completely blew me away with its imaginative storyline. Hogan is gone, and we as a species are so much the poorer as a result.

If you like hard scifi, you will love this book. If you're a "Giants" series lover, it will put you in heaven.

James P. Hogan was one of the most creative writers of the 20th century. Entoverse brilliantly shows why that was the case.

Perhaps the best "aliens" ever!

This book definitely wasn't as action packed and interesting as the first three. It got off to a really slow start and a lot of the plot on Jevlen is uninteresting. However, once the Entoverse gets discovered it really takes off. Hogan has some really cool ideas here and once they're brought to light the book sort of takes on a new form.
Sean Randall
This one was a little harder to swallow, though still quite enjoyable. I certainly see why there's only one left, they are getting to the stage where the law of similarity becomes a bit of a drag more than anything else!
Tymothy
This one wasn't as good as the first two in the series, but had some good ideas. Definitely wandered more and didn't grab my attention as well.
Ralph
This book dropped in what made the earlier books so interesting. This book was a little slow and heavy.
Haley
Another WOW for James P. Hogan! This is the 4th book in the Giant's series and it didn't disapoint me.
Matthew Frost
Not very interesting. This series could do without this book

This book can help you understand some aspects of quantum physics.
