This book will be forever remembered for its astonishing second half that kept me enthralled till the last. What an extraordinary melding of man and machine. I love the characterizations of Howard and Adam and their separate/conjoined existences. This is a 'must' SF read. Peter Eerden.

Great backdrop as set out by Sir Arthur Clarke. Reynolds and Baxter took it further with a exploration into modern day pertinent issues such as the ethical issues behind AI development and the elevation of non-human primates. Great discussion of these issues. Storyline moved a little too slow at the start. Interludes broke up the pace and detracted a little bit fro lm the main story at the end when things got exciting. Overall very entertaining read.

Fast paced, thoughtful, and interesting view of a machine/human future. This book moves seamlessly between a fascinating alternative history, other solar system life forms, and a future that follows the spiralling descent of humans and evolving machines that they had once created.

The Medusa Chronicles pushes the boundaries at all levels. A clever blend of hard SF and human tragedy. Just when you think it's the end, stranger and more terrifying possibilities open up. Definitely a not-put-downer !

Some interesting ideas and a truly long view of humanity's spread through the solar system, but the characters are barely two-dimensional and the best that can be said of the writing is that it's simple.

A charming and propulsive work that recalls the style of 60s and 70s SF while adding nicely modern touches. Picks up pace nicely and dazzles in patches

Why on earth is this being sold at $16.99 for a KINDLE edition? Total rip-off, since the publication costs per book would have been far, far lower than that. I'd previously thought $12 was too expensive but this is ridiculous.
