Jun 05, Bill Bowne rated it liked it. As other reviewers noted, the author does use a bit of coarse language which is normal for college campuses, though ;- and he does have a predilection for using 70's porn star names for starships not that I recognized all of them, though, even though I was in my 20's in the 's I enjoyed the author's inventiveness. You do sense a 'wrongness' right from the book's start, but the actual ending twists were pleasant surprises.
Jul 15, Charles rated it really liked it. This book is solid space-opera, but light reading for the most part.

Some readers may not like the way the dominant religion which is similar to some denominations of Christianity is portrayed. Nov 03, Mike rated it really liked it. It is a decent book that moves rapidly to a startling ending. It is written in a style reminiscent of a Heinlein novel where the main protagonists are mostly young college age kids and a junior lecturer.
You have a series of mysteries that the protagonists confront that really are engrossing. The only issue is that these aliens and their religious zealot followers that murder dissenters, use weapons that are considered war crimes, and exterminate civilizations seem to be cowed by pointing It is a decent book that moves rapidly to a startling ending. The only issue is that these aliens and their religious zealot followers that murder dissenters, use weapons that are considered war crimes, and exterminate civilizations seem to be cowed by pointing lawyers at them for a few seconds. It moves the story along, but it seems kind of bizarre.
May 10, Ken rated it it was ok. Another vacation book--it could have been very good except for 2 things. It is way too profane and Paul Cook obviously has too much hatred for organized religion in general and Mormons in particular. Aug 11, Koos rated it it was ok. Amusing, not fantastic. Jan 15, Mike Franklin rated it really liked it Shelves: science-fiction. Occasionally pushing the bounds of belief. Apr 20, Chris Stutts rated it liked it.

watch Guest More than 1 year ago To me, this book is exactly opposite of what the first reviewer said. I loved the mystery, the subtle clues, the character development, the excitement, the action I thought it was a very well rounded book, and I could not put it down. Interestingly enough, I was not able to get through 'Red Mars' by Kim Stanley Robinson because I found it too dry, but I think 'Red Mars' is more concerned about scientific details whereas 'Engines of God' focuses on the adventure and mystery, so I guess it all depends on which way you lean.
Guest More than 1 year ago The character development was very weak, I couldn't empathise with any of them. The plot was ludicrous with far too many unlikely coincidences, the science and technology described was not at all believable, it just wasn't realistic.
