Beschreibung

The astounding new novel from the master of science fiction. What would happen if the world were ending?
When a catastrophic event renders the Earth a ticking time bomb, it triggers a feverish race against the inevitable. An ambitious plan is devised to ensure the survival of humanity far beyond our atmosphere. But unforeseen dangers threaten the intrepid pioneers, until only a handful of survivors remain....
Five thousand years later, their progeny - seven distinct races now three billion strong - embark on yet another audacious journey into the unknown, to an alien world utterly transformed by cataclysm and time: Earth.
A writer of dazzling genius and imaginative vision, Neal Stephenson combines science, philosophy, technology, psychology, and literature in a magnificent work of speculative fiction that offers a portrait of a future that is at once extraordinary and eerily recognizable. He explores some of our biggest ideas and perplexing challenges in a breathtaking saga that is daring, engrossing, and altogether brilliant.

Why not end the book after 20h?

Having read/listened to many of Stevenson's books, I was excited about this new story. Really fascinating and thrilling storytelling, great plot, interesting characters, and a fitting ending... after about two thirds of the book. But: Why add this last third, set 5000 years in the future? Instead of a dialogue driven story we get lengthy descriptions of new societies. The last third feels rather detached from the original story and might have worked as a standalone continuation. For me, the last part turned an outstanding five star book into an average three star experience.

Brillante, technische Tiefe; suboptimaler Erzähler

Für alle, deren Details und Tiefe über Story gehen. Oft verteilt Seveneves ab einem Ort der Handlung über ganze Kapitel, um auf die Details eines einzigen Sachverhaltes einzugehen. Tauche tief in die Welt aktueller Science Fiction ab!
