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.
