Five thousand years later after a catastrophic event rendered the Earth a ticking time bomb, the progeny of a handful of outer space explorers--seven distinct races now three billion strong--embark on yet another audacious journey: to return to Earth.
  1. 40
    Anathem de Neal Stephenson (Mind_Booster_Noori)
  2. 40
    Red Mars de Kim Stanley Robinson (psybre)
    psybre: Each book contains detailed methods and thinking that goes into solving space-colonization and space disaster issues. They also infuse the issues with politics.
  3. 20
    The Forge of God de Greg Bear (JGolomb)
    JGolomb: All life on Earth is ending, and humanity runs for the stars
  4. 10
    The Martian de Andy Weir (hoddybook)
    hoddybook: Engineering solutions in stressful conditions.

    Reamde de Neal Stephenson (bookfitz)
  6. 00
    The Calculating Stars de Mary Robinette Kowal (g33kgrrl)
    g33kgrrl: When disaster hits and earth becomes uninhabitable, what happens next? Kowal's book is set in the 1950s, but should still satisfy the same itch that Seveneves does.
  7. 00
    Lucifer's Hammer de Larry Niven (Cecrow)
  8. 00
    Macrolife: A Mobile Utopia de George Zebrowski (tetrachromat)
  9. 11
    Schismatrix Plus de Bruce Sterling (szarka)
    szarka: Seveneves and Sterling's Shapers-Mechanists stories are both concerned with what happens to humanity over long spans of time.
  10. 22
    Ringworld de Larry Niven (JGolomb)
  11. 01
    The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains de Nicholas Carr (themulhern)
    themulhern: Both books are about social media and connectedness turning people into bad decision makers.
  12. 12
    Aurora de Kim Stanley Robinson (JGolomb)
    JGolomb: Earth looks to space to save humankind. Seveneves is much better.
  13. 03
    The Foundation Trilogy de Isaac Asimov (BeckyJG)
    BeckyJG: Both are narratives with a big, optimistic vision of the future of humanity.
  14. 011
    The Hobbit / The Lord of the Rings de J. R. R. Tolkien (JGolomb)
    JGolomb: While not fantasy, Stephenson's work does an amazing job of building Middle-Earth-like mythology.

Not my flavor. Too much technical detail. I don't care how the ship is built. I care how the people are interacting. I have stayed with longer than I might have because Stephenson is an excellent writer. ( )

I stopped reading this book some chapters into part 3! However I tried I couldn't convince myself to continue through more pages of what has been going on for many hundred pages ahead. Not a sci-fi book I'd say. ( )

I feel like the version of the book I read was published before a round of much-needed editing was finished. Parts of the book feel tedious to get through from long descriptions of how spacecraft physics works (which I'm sure was well researched but really could have been condensed). Others whizzed by potentially interesting characters without letting us really see them as well as he developed some of the main scientists in the beginning. This absolutely should have been two, even three novels- I would have liked to see one of the journey to Cleft, an expansion on the first generation of the Seven's children, then the story of the future told, maybe even an expanded version. New Earth is three hundred pages long, but it still feels like Cliff's Notes compared to what came before it.

I really enjoyed so much of Seveneves- stories, characters, concepts, settings- but despite that, this was really a slog. ( )

This book is so very strange. Upto about two-thirds of the way in this was one of the better science fiction books I have read. But then the book kind of fell on its face.

The premise of this book is phenomenal. The moon explodes, condemning life on earth to an untimely death. The rest of the book is about how the human species ekes out a precarious existence in space.

I loved the characters, particularly empathising with Dinah and Dubois. But this isn't really a book about characters. Its about events, decisions, ideas and of course science.

It is extremely clear that the author had planned to devote large sections of this book to the science of space habitats - their conceptualization, construction, maintenance and transport. I will freely admit that not being particularly well versed in the sciences, some of this went over my head. But the overall impression created was one of last-ditch crazy innovation that just might work. I think this is the effect the author was trying to create.

About four chapters in, I had a fairly major grievance against the author. This book seemed to be devoid of humanity. The end of the world had been announced. Where were the politicians in denial? The religious apocalypse crowds? The panicked rioting crowds? Instead the narrative consisted of scientific people engaging in reasonable discussions about technological innovations. Why were people being so mature?

Gradually I understood that all of that was there, but it happened off-screen. I think the author consiously decided to focus on the science while hinting about other events. It was actually a pretty accurate representation of the reality of the space station. And of course the politics did return with a vengeance in the second part precipitating the chain of events leading to the Seveneves.

This brings me to the third and final part.

Warning: Major Spoilers

The book could and should have finished with the Seveneves. A long prologue could have accounted for the 5000 years in the future narrative and the rest of it could have been a second book. Instead we get a semi-book - the third part presents the seven distinct races 5000 years in the future, and what they find on Earth - something that had been hinted about since the beginning - underwater and underground survivors. There is some initial conflict, some meetings, a hint at a larger narrative and the book ends in a very bad way.

Frankly it would have been much better to write this story in a separate book rather than tacking it on and ruining a perfectly good book

"Seveneves" is as hard as "hard science fiction" gets: cool bits of science and speculation about the future of technology, space and culture, with a plot and dialogue bolted on to make it more enjoyable to follow. That said, Stephenson's speculation is fascinating. He's got a lot to say about the physics of whips, glider transportation, military robotics, and everything else that can be crammed into his premise.
adicionado por bookfitz | editarLos Angeles Times, Douglas Wolk (May 29, 2015)
 
"None of this makes Seveneves the kind of hard SF in which you see a writer dutifully populating his universe with characters who have feelings even though you can tell he just wants to write about giant space gadgets. Stephenson’s people are vivid and terrified: they bicker and cry and perform heroic deeds."
adicionado por bookfitz | editarThe Guardian, Steven Poole (May 13, 2015)
 
"No slim fables or nerdy novellas for Stephenson (Anathem, 2008, etc.): his visions are epic, and he requires whole worlds—and, in this case, solar systems—to accommodate them."
adicionado por bookfitz | editarKirkus Reviews (Mar 15, 2015)
 
"Stephenson’s remarkable novel is deceptively complex, a disaster story and transhumanism tale that serves as the delivery mechanism for a series of technical and sociological visions."

But Henry wasn't a parent, and he didn't understand that when you were, almost nothing was more satisfying than seeing your kid sleep.
She then called a meeting of the entire human race: Dinah, Ivy, Moira, Tekla, Julia, Aïda, Camila, and Luisa.
Smiling, Aïda thrust her hand out, thumb down.
“I pronounce a curse,” she said. Luisa let out an exasperated sigh. “This is not a curse that I create. It is not a curse on your children. No. I have never been as bad as you all think that I am. This is a curse that you have created, by doing this thing that you are about to do. And it is a curse upon my children. Because I know. I see how it is to be. I am the evil one. The cannibal. The one who would not go along. My children, no matter what decision I make, will forever be different from your children. Because make no mistake. What you have decided to do is to create new races. Seven new races. They will be separate and distinct forever, as much as you, Moira, are from Ivy. They will never merge into a single human race again, because that is not the way of humanity. Thousands of years from now, the descendants of you six will look at my descendants and say, ‘Ah, look, there is a child of Aïda, the cannibal, the evil one, the cursed one.’ They will cross the street to avoid my children; they will spit on the ground. This is the thing that you have done by making this decision. I will shape my child—my children, for I shall have many—to bear up under this curse. To survive it. And to prevail.” Aïda swept her gaze around the room, staring with her deep black eyes into the face of each of the other women in turn, then looked into the window and locked eyes with Dinah.
“I pronounce it,” she said, then slowly rotated her hand until her thumb was pointed up.
