|Plot Summary of Space - Manifold 2|
Of all of Mr. Baxters books that I have read this was the most depressing. He focused on all that is bad aboaut humanity and draped the entire history that evolved in a defeatest attitude towards hunmaity in general. Sure the main characters evolved into some sembalance of a satisfying end of their lives but in general teh rest of humaity ended up in the toilet. I literly had to force myself to read the last two chapters and was glad to put the book down and call it done.
