Seeker (Jack McDevitt) Book Reviews

SF speculative space opera?Growing up on Heinlein, Norton, etc, I thought stories like they wrote would always be there. Somehow, they are few and far between. This is a good one..Score: 5/5

Alex Benedict is the Sherlock Holmes of the Future!Incredible! Intrigue and science fiction, space ships, dead colonies. A mystery for the ages. I can't help but see Chase playing Watson to Benedict as see the plot unfold through her eyes. You won't be able to put this one down..Score: 5/5

Great readVery enjoyable romp through the universe with some very likable characters. Love this writer - I’ll be reading his next book..Score: 5/5

My favorite McDevitt bookI first found Jack McDevitt many years ago when Polaris was suggested to me. It was pretty good, but not as good as I had been told. Later, I read Deepsix and The Engines of God. When I picked this book up, I became a true believer. It is inventive, engrossing and very human, in our best and worst senses. I have purchased it several times, and reread it often. This is just a very good story, very well told..Score: 5/5

AwesomeLoved it.Score: 5/5

Wonderful!By far one of my favorite books of all time. McDevitt's works' greatness lies not only in his vision of the far off future, but in his wonderful ability to describe the seemingly mundane, day-to-day life of those living in that far off future--little details that most other authors often overlook or omit, but that add to the realism of the universe McDevitt places us in. If you're looking for a great read with a fascinating, thought-provoking ending, purchase this book..Score: 5/5

Slow start but quickensIt was a good read. I paid $7.99 which wasn't bad in my opinion. It started off slow but picked up the pace. Sometimes I felt the timing was poor or at least caused some confusion. Overall, I'm glad I spent the money and time on it. It was better than average but not quite the fourth star..Score: 3/5

Good Mystery, OK SciFiThis is much more a mystery novel than a SciFi novel. If you enjoy the former, it will be a great read. There are a number of interesting turns and the end keeps on giving. But if you're more of a hard SciFi fan like myself, you will likely find the universe to be un-imaginitive and the action to be full of holes..Score: 3/5

Very enjoyableThe book is overall very enjoyable. Do not expect a mind blowing Sci-Fi masterpiece, but a nice plot, rendered pretty well, and with two main characters that are easy to take an interest in and care about. The statement by Stephen King that Jack is the next Clarke made me expect greatness, so my expectations were too high. On the downside, many plot points become predictable and I found the time between the obvious to be tedious and frustrating. The best comparison I can give is when you watch a horror movie and you think to yourself "don’t go into the basement you idiot”, but there is an excessivly long time spent discussing about going into the basement..Score: 4/5
