    I was in the middle of the Dune trilogy when I took a ‘break’ to read this book. I found it by coincidence and was excited to read a sci-fi book written by an engineer, being one myself. I must have been in the mood for it, because I devoured it. Or maybe it’s the fact that I was projecting myself as the author given that I’ve had similar writing ideas as him, mainly space travel using incubators and seeds. I personally found interesting how a big part of the book focuses on the ‘how-to’ of plane I was in the middle of the Dune trilogy when I took a ‘break’ to read this book.

Or maybe it’s the fact that I was projecting myself as the author given that I’ve had similar writing ideas as him, mainly space travel using incubators and seeds. I personally found interesting how a big part of the book focuses on the ‘how-to’ of planet colonization; and the troubleshooting. This is a style of writing I’ve never experienced before and I liked it. At the same time, I can see how certain people might dislike it. I can’t say that this book is a great book. The characters development is shallow, the intrigue is not based on the characters, but on the actions. What is the next step that he should do to succeed? That is what I was looking for when reading this book. But what I can say is that is it a good book. The science behind it interested me. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes to think about the how of things. Tailored to engineers it seems. I’m curious where the sequel will take us! Maybe the focus will change with experience of the author.

    SEED a book well planted! And a story that grows on you. Good book, it gets better and better as it goes along. I found myself in tears at the end. I wasn't expecting to feel such an emotional connection to a story about a robot bootstrapping a civilization but it snuck up on me , and clubbed me over the head with deep feeling in the end. I look forward to book # two , see the continuing evolution of the Character of Nick and of the civilization he created.

    This 'hard Science' aspect of this book appears to be well researched. I am happy to say I learned some things along the way. The humor and music references were enjoyable also. Very good first effort from this author! I'm looking forward to the sequel to see the growth of both the story and the authors skills.

    I liked this to a point, but the hardassedness didn't really sit very well with me, nor did the finite lived yet physically impervious robot-bodied hero. Fun to turn my brain off for a few hours but not an author I will revisit unless there's more warmth and a deeper sense of believability.

    Great break out sci-fi I picked thus book up from an Amazon recommendation. I was not disappointed, it was a well written, well thought out first novel. I would find myself getting list into how relatable the main character is to myself.

    Fantastic story! Great sense of humour for a fantastic story idea. It's been a while since I sat down and read through a book barely stopping. Absolutely worth the read!
