One night in October when he was ten years old, Tyler Dupree stood in his back yard and watched the stars go out. They all flared into brilliance at once, then disappeared, replaced by a flat, empty black barrier. He and his best friends, Jason and Diane Lawton, had seen what became known as the Big Blackout. It would shape their lives. The effect is worldwide. The sun is now a featureless disk--a heat source, rather than an astronomical object. The moon is gone, but tides remain. Not only have the world's artificial satellites fallen out of orbit, their recovered remains are pitted and aged, as though they'd been in space far longer than their known lifespans. As Tyler, Jason, and Diane grow up, space probe reveals a bizarre truth: The barrier is artificial, generated by huge alien artifacts. Time is passing faster outside the barrier than inside--more than a hundred million years per day on Earth. At this rate, the death throes of the sun are only about forty years in our future. Jason, now a promising young scientist, devotes his life to working against this slow-moving apocalypse. Diane throws herself into hedonism, marrying a sinister cult leader who's forged a new religion out of the fears of the masses. Earth sends terraforming machines to Mars to let the onrush of time do its work, turning the planet green. Next they send humans...and immediately get back an emissary with thousands of years of stories to tell about the settling of Mars. Then Earth's probes reveal that an identical barrier has appeared around Mars. Jason, desperate, seeds near space with self-replicating machines that will scatter copies of themselves outward from the sun--and report back on what they find. Life on Earth is about to get much, much stranger.… (mais)

Books like this have a tendency to really piss me off. One of the things I have always hated about science fiction is the way it deals with religion. Usually the plot device is to have crazy religious people doing bad things. I'm not a religious person so it's not that I feel slighted. I just don't care about it. Leave it out. It's lazy and clichéd.

Despite my reservations I thought the story was good. The friend who recommended it said not to read the next one in the series. Fine with me.

Great, but it stressed me out! The romance was surprisingly non-annoying. ( )

Cool concept but would have been better if it were about 200 pages shorter. ( )

Well Written Nothingness

I nearly gave up on this several times, but persisted because the promise of a payoff or something worthwhile happening must surely be around the corner. It won a Hugo after all. But no, nothing happens.

The premise is great, but nothing is really done with it. We get secondhand glimpses of the interesting ongoings by a protagonist that doesn't really grasp them. I just can't bring myself to care about the mundane when the incredible is so close by. Rating 2/5. ( )

This was my second or third time trying to read this. The first 10-20 pages are so much like a short story I started writing back when I was in high school that I really had a hard time getting past the similarities. Once I did though, it was basically nothing like that old story of mine.

It felt like I was reading this for a long time, but I guess it was just a month. It definitely wasn’t a page turner, at least not for me, but there were some good surprises, and I liked the story well enough, even if the characters never really felt compelling to me.

I am tempted to go right into the sequel, but I’ll probably read some other stuff first. ( )
