Reviews - What do customers think about The Space Eater?
Hard SF at its Best! Mar 15, 2004
Langford had a long career as a professional physicist, and this shows in the convincing physics he puts on display in this fast-moving, thought-provoking tale. At the same time, he wears his expertise lightly: the reader is never stifled by the science, nor struggling to comprehend it. Very few authors get this balance right, but Langford does it perfectly ... and tells a rollicking good tale into the bargain. Highly recommended.
Surprisingly good easy readin' scifi Nov 21, 2003
A surprisngly good read. I bought this as one of perhaps fifty scifi paperbacks at a used bookstore; it was good enough to make me go and look up what else he's written. (Rather a lot, it turns out.) Just good scifi.
Good for a laugh, but totally unbelievable Nov 20, 1999
The Space Eater reads like a dimestore scifi comic. The realism is non-existent (Novas that took place recently are somehow instantly visible in the Earth's night sky, humans can be regenerated with memories and personalities intact from DNA, etc.)
Still, if you are LOOKING for a comic-book style novel, you should probably gain some amusement from this one.
A thought provoking book with a twist in the tail. Dec 30, 1998
The idea of regeneration works well in this scenario. Forced to live, the two heroes of this novel are forced to carry out the wishes of the " mature " earth society. The earth, however, had not anticipated on them being many light years away....
