  1. 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 o [...]


  2. I am 74 years old and time is valuable and this book just took a nice chunk of it out of my life I had never read the works of this author and did like the story outline Reviews were generally positive, but I place much of that in Stephenson s legion of followers.The technical aspects are far too detailed and excessive I lost count on the pages dedicated to delta V This was symptomatic of the book and especially in the first 500 pages I can understand character development, but again excessive.W [...]


  3. Steampunk at its worst Irrational premises Uses of materials and energies that would have made John Campbell blush.Without being a spoiler, let me point out just one of the many annoying sillinesses The characters in the book retain the ability to manipulate the genes of their descendants, but when their storehouse of human genetic material is accidentally lost, they don t have the good sense to collect new samples before sending crewmen out on suicide missions.Stephenson at his best addresses g [...]


  4. I ve never run a marathon, but I would say this book is the literary equivalent of what I d expect You start out decently You re getting into it, and psyching yourself up for the full journey Then, you start to hit your stride You get into a good pace and make good progress You start to get fatigued, and you look ahead and realize just how much is still left to do No you say I signed up for the this, and I ve made it this far I have to keep going You keep going, but you re losing steam Your pace [...]


  5. First off, I am a big fan of Neal Stephenson s work and Snow Crash is a favourite book of mine, but my goodness what a mess this book is.It reads like a long Shaggy Dog story to get to the punchline of the title He spends pages and pages on the minutiae of orbital mechanics, which to even someone with heavy scientific background like myself felt excessive and overly detailed, and then glosses over loads of improbable science with hand wavy never mind about that dismissal.Likewise loads of narrat [...]


  6. I really didn t know how to review this book There were things about it that I loved and things about it that I found deeply frustrating on many levels I guess I should say that as massive as this book is, I binged the whole thing in a weekend, reading to the exclusion of all else In the times where I was forced to eat and sleep, the story was never far from my mind.The issues as I saw them were threefold as dazzling and epic as the concept was, I really struggled with the writing style For the [...]
