Publisher's Summary

Eons ago, a gentle race of giants fled the planet Minerva, leaving the ancestors of man to fend for themselves. Fifty thousand years ago, Minerva exploded, hurling its moon into an orbit about Earth.
In the 21st century, scientists Victor Hunt and Chris Danchekker, doing research on Ganymede, attract a small band of friendly aliens who are lost in time - and who begin to reveal something of the origin of mankind. Finally, man believed that he comprehended his place in the universe...until he learned of the Watchers in the stars. Now Earth finds itself in the middle of a power struggle between a benevolent alien empire and an offshoot group of upstart humans who hate Earth more than any alien ever could.

Fan of Inherit the Stars? Dont bother w/ this one

What did you like best about Giants' Star? What did you like least?

I first read Inherit the Stars 35 years ago... and I can honestly say that it was one of the inspirations that lead me to become a scientist. In a fit of nostalgia, I bought the audio book (along with the two direct sequels to the trilogy). 35 years ago, I found this installment so convoluted that I never finished it... and even in audio book form, I had a hard time finishing it. Of the three books, this one is VERY dated and very sexist. I rapidly slides into a mire of pysdo science-new age phooey. Enjoy the first two books of the trilogy and skip this one. The narration is passable at best.
