3.0 de 5 estrelas I like Neal Stephenson But Sometimes Too Much Is Too Much 26 de janeiro de 2017
Por Don Tyler - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
I like Neal Stephenson. I really do. I particularly enjoyed Cryptonomicon, The Baroque Cycle, and even had a grudging respect for Anathem, generally reviled among his hard-core fans. But I hit the wall with Seveneves. Let me explain why, because I think many reviewers either blindly bought into it, or put it down as garbage. There is a reason for both.

Seveneves is an 880 page novel, ostensibly about a very near-future catastrophe where the world must work together in a short amount of time to build out an orbiting habitat (using the ISS as a core), to save what tiny fraction they can of the human race. As you can imagine, this rush to save the essence of humanity is a perfect stage to explore every near-future space technology and Stephenson takes every opportunity to do so. And then some.

Unlike Cryptonomicon, for example, where the Turing code-break/world net/Axis gold story lines are different enough for the reader to enjoy or slog through, the technology in Sveneves is so dense, so similar in purpose, and so relentless, it’s easy for one’s eyes to glaze over. A six page description of delta-V and how to achieve it might be interesting in and of itself, if it weren’t part of many, many more pages of orbital mechanics and how to use a nuclear reactor to power a space-borne craft. And although the subjects he deeply delves into range from genetics, to asteroid mining, water from comets as propellant, and zero-g sex, these components are all in service to a very specific technology problem the survivors are trying to solve.

The first two-thirds of the book relate the challenges of creating the habitat and stabilizing its existence. Unfortunately, the story is but a mere framework on which to hang gobs of technical dissertation, and the characters are poorly formed, used only as chess pieces around which the technology can orbit. No matter how much you may adore hard SF (and Stephenson admits he did play fast and loose with bits of the tech), Seveneves ends up reading, for the most part, like transcribed lectures.

The last third of the book, when the survivors can finally return to Earth, exalts similarly in forward-derivative tech, although the story itself picks up a little more steam. The ending is meh and satisfactory only in that it is an ending.

The secret to Seveneves, however, is spelled out in the author’s five pages of acknowledgements at the end. He tells how he started developing ideas for the book in 2006, and lists the huge cadre of techies, space scientists and enthusiasts, and geeks that helped him vet any number of ideas in his book. The real telling line, comes at the end when he thanks his editor for her patience with him while he spent seven years deciding what to do with all these ideas. To me, that’s tech in search of a story and that’s exactly what you get in Seveneves.

Many reviewers either loved it because it was NEAL STEPHENSON, while many just stopped reading and tossed it on the floor. When I realized less than half way through that I really fell into the latter camp, I nevertheless struggled through to the end because I adore Stephenson’s snarky prose, which is definitely on point. I gave the book three stars, though it really deserves two and a half stars because you have to admire a writer with his cojones to put this out.

Should you read Seveneves? If you’re a Stephenson nut, you can’t not read it. If you’re new to Stephenson, stay away and try some of his earlier books from the 1990s. He is no doubt a very fine writer and I would hate to have a newbie be influenced by what I hope is a vanity project that has emptied Stephenson’s pent-up rolodex of very near-future space tech, and that his next book is more accessible.

2.0 de 5 estrelas Warning to the normal people out there! 10 de abril de 2017
Por Magic Maniac - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
There are thousands of good reviews but I think this book really appeals to thousands of a particular type of person.
If you like lots and LOTS of info dumping this book is for you! About 600 of the 800 some pages is all about explaining orbital mechanics, Delta V problems, propulsion systems, speculative genetic procedures etc.

If you want a good engaging story about people you care about ... look elsewhere.

There is an interesting story buried in this book and it could have been made into a fine 300 page novel but that didn't happen. I really tried to finish it, got up to page 680 but I just couldn't take it any more!

PS. Yes I am the kind of person you would think would like this book. I am a nerd, a super computer designer, i have a patent in integrated circuit design, love science and science fiction, I even perform my own Science show for schools! But this book was WAY too much.

1.0 de 5 estrelas Who's gonna be mayor of we're-all-screwed-ville 6 de setembro de 2016
Por Amazon Customer - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Book is a technical manual on space that devolves quickly into a typical zombie-esque scenario of people vying for power over a high schools worth of people.

Boring. characters are one dimensional and dialogue is worse.

I will say there's a lot to learn in this book. You'll end up knowing a fair amount about the mechanics of space.

But ultimately even there it fails with gigantic genetic plot holes and magical robots.

1.0 de 5 estrelas its a technical instruction manual for imaginary inventions not a sci fi novel. 12 de fevereiro de 2016
Por matt - Publicada na Amazon.com

if your idea of a good time is reading an instruction manual you'll love this book. i wanted a cool sci fi adventure. instead i got a detailed explanation of how imaginary inventions work. go read "ready player one" or "the martian" both are a million times better and will keep you hooked! this book put me to sleep.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Moon takes a Vacation! 12 de agosto de 2016
Por Bertram - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Excellent! One of the best end of the world scenarios with many plot twists that I have read in a long time. I of course have my own personal theory about the agent that it is a small or tiny black hole which intersected with the Earth Moon system with disastrous effects. But what a thought! I never in my life would have thought it possible and make it seem realistic to make the Moon disappear.
