it was amazing
Read in January, 2005

I had already read several of Baxter's books when I read Manifold:Time. Before Manifold, I enjoyed his work After Manifold- I was completely sucked in and hooked. After reading this one, I began to search out and order all of his other books. I really loved how Baxter took on the subject of quantum physics. He takes the space and time, woven into the story to explain many very complex concepts, and he also illustrates and demonstrates them within the context of the story. this combination is a huge asset in understanding, or at least comprehending ideas that lie beyond the current scope of the human mind:) Baxter helps us to step beyond the intensity we currently feel in amidst all of Earth's crucial problems. He both shows us our potential futures- based on very real science, and puts the trivial aspects of our moment in history into perspective. He does this by creating races and histories and stories that span time that we can barely conceive of, in comparison to western human history!

Many of the passages that explain science, I had to read several times. But rather than feeling like a distraction from the story, I felt like it enhanced the stories.
