Others have written science fiction on the theme of immortality, but in The Boat of a Million Years, Poul Anderson made it his own. Early in human history, certain individuals were born who live on—unaging, undying—through the centuries and millennia. This story follows them over two thousand years, up to our time and beyond—to the promise of utopia, and to the challenge of the stars.
A milestone in modern science fiction and a New York Times Notable Book when first published in 1989, this is one of a great writer’s finest works.

Stupefaction at the boredom instilled by this book
Rewrite is needed
It's basically a historical novel. The history goes on and on and on, hammering the same pattern for several different persons. This is not science fiction. It's a historical novel and a character description of those person.
Boredom, history, repetition
Boredom and disappointment
I enjoyed several of Paul Anderson's books, that's why I got this one. But, while the idea has great promise, the execution is boring.
