Review of 'Deep Future'

Deep Future by Stephen Baxter

A speculative look at various elements of our galaxies (and our own) futures. There are five parts each containing a number of chapters, attempting to look further and further into the future until time has no meaning. This book reads quite well but seems to be a bit disjointed with Mr. Baxter returning to various themes again and again (even, it seems, to the point of repeating himself). The flow of the book is such that the reader can pick up the book, read a few chapters and put it down for however long and pick it up again without having to remember what was previously being discussed. Mr. Baxter certainly does show his scientific knowledge well with a supreme talent at making it understandable and interesting.

Rating: “A bit better than average”

Genre: Science Fiction
