Neal Stephenson – Seveneves

Neal Stephenson – Seveneves

This book was simply amazing to read. I chained it on the train from Copenhagen to Hamburg to Vienna, I simply could not put it down. Spanning 5,000 years, set on Earth as well as in Space I was gripped from start to finish.

Telling the story of a group of scientists trying to save the future of the human race against an unthinkable catastrophe, compounded by ethics and politics it was really engaging watching the story play out across time, with respect to all the individual decisions made along the way.

At 800+ pages, it’s not a short read, but none of those pages were filler, always building on what had come before to create a very rich world and galaxy. Neal’s research in to all the topics covered was really thorough and added so much to the world he created to, this books really has made me want to read more of his writings.
