Seveneves: A Novel | Neal Stephenson
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Anathem, Reamde, and Cryptonomicon comes an exciting and thought-provoking science fiction epica grand story of annihilation and survival spanning five thousand yearsWhat would happen if the world were ending? A catastrophic event renders the earth a ticking time bomb. In a feverish race against the inevitable, nations around the globe band together to devise an ambitious plan to ensure the survival of humanity far beyond our atmosphere, in outer space.But the complexities and unpredictability of human nature coupled with unforeseen challenges and dangers threaten the intrepid pioneers, until only a handful of survivors remains . . . Five thousand years later, their progenyseven distinct races now three billion strongembark on yet another audacious journey into the unknown . . . to an alien world utterly transformed by cataclysm and time: Earth.A writer of dazzling genius and imaginative vision, Neal Stephenson combines science, philosophy, technology, psychology, and literature in a magnificent work of speculative fiction that offers a portrait of a future that is both extraordinary and eerily recognizable. As he did in Anathem, Cryptonomicon, the Baroque Cycle, and Reamde, Stephenson explores some of our biggest ideas and perplexing challenges in a breathtaking saga that is daring, engrossing, and altogether brilliant.

It took me over two months to read this 800+ pager. Although parts were slow for me, seeing over 5000 years of human “history,” survival, and innovation unfold made it a worthy read.

It had been on my tbr for a while but I decided to read it bc my library had a “read a book set in space” task for their reading challenge.

This was an interesting one by one of my favorite authors, and one that introduced me to the “hard sci fi” genre. It‘s thoughtfully-written, and almost entirely believable as a possible future, albeit one with some conveniently-interesting developments. Neal‘s ability to start wide and bring everything together is definitely apparent in this book, and though long, was an easy and enjoyable read!

Learned a concept called Amistics. We think of technological change as linear and always improving but in reality, people and circumstances dictate which tech will be adopted.

Ex: irl, our phone/internet tech is evolving rapidly while humans haven‘t made as many advances in spacefaring. In this book, 5000 years in the future, phone tech is what we were using in 2005 but they have advanced robotics, and permanent settlements in Earth‘s orbit.

Still working on this thicc book. Peep pg 700 in the corner.

I don‘t generally like to give bad reviews, but I barely made it through this one. The basic story line was great and well written- and that made up about a third of the book. It was so constantly being interrupted by these mind numbing scientific details, that by the time they got back to the story you forget what was going on. If I wanted a science book I would have bought one.

Seveneves is 800+ pages and it‘s a commitment for me bc I don‘t read as fast as most of you on here.

But reading an epic story like this is quite rewarding.

Here are some reproductive topics I‘ve taken issue with so far:

1. Back when they still had embryos and sperm samples, the Arkies and Gpop were expected to get pregnant with those embryos. If I was one of the last remaining humans and was responsible for carrying on the species, I‘m my getting pregnant with my own gd embryo and genetics.

2. This post-menopausal women is basically described here as worthless. [cont.]

hike.read.repeat 3. Literally the first thing these last remaining 8 humans discuss after another catastrophic event is how they will get pregnant. Like, what about ensuring their own survival? It is implied that they are good on food and energy now that even more humans are dead, but still. Start some crops first, then worry about cloning yourself. Is that what the author thinks women would do in that situation? 3mo
hike.read.repeat That being said, I‘m excited to see how the rest of the book unfolds. The premise is these last remaining seven women who still have egg cells get to choose how the genes in their clones will be edited. Basically, what traits do they think will be beneficial to the survival of humanity. 3mo

I reached the third act of this book and kind of lost interest. 🤭 There was a huge shift and I‘m sure it‘s going to get really good, but I am ready to move on. Do you ever feel like you‘ve been reading the same book for so long, you just want to be done with it?

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I remember that feeling with this book, the last section is so far ahead....think of it like the epilogue, afterwards short story, that focuses on how those people who made such desperate choices worked out and came back together eventually. I remember it as being fascinating once I got into it, but hard to start initially. 3mo

I‘m getting close to being halfway done with this one but I still can‘t get around the fact that nothing was done to prevent the White Sky and Hard Rain while so much effort and resources were put into preserving a small amount of human life. It seems like they could have pushed the boulders out of orbit soon after the Agent, when scientists started to realize what would happen.

My favorite setting from a book is the future from Seveneves where the Habitat Ring around the Earth is where all of humanity lives. I wouldn‘t want to live in world where humans couldn‘t occupy our planet anymore, but I always find myself thinking bout this book and this concept. It‘s such an unusual idea. I think Neal Stephenson is brilliant. #gigibookbox @GondorGirl

⭐️1/2
This book was 868 pages of what felt like mostly science info dumps. Some of the science was interesting, but character development and pacing both suffered due to the excessive focus on explaining these concepts, when, especially considering what the first 2/3 of the book are about, it really could have used some compelling characters instead. Unfortunately, all the characters felt surface level, and I struggled to find any sort of ⬇️

shadowspeak17 connection with them. I also felt like a lot of the things I really wanted to know about (be it plot, character, or science related) were skipped over in favor of things that did less for the plot and characters which left me scratching my head wondering why Stephenson would do that. The last third felt like it should have been its own book to better allow the story to develop. As it was, that section felt kind of lazy like Stephenson was... 12mo
shadowspeak17 ...running out of steam and just wanted to slap an ending on and be done with it. This book was a huge disappointment. It had so much potential, but it just seemed to miss that potential at almost every turn. If I hadn‘t been reading this with friends, I probably would have bailed. At least our discussion of it should be interesting. 🤷🏽‍♀️

I read 1-3 books at a time. I‘m currently reading three and it‘s right on the edge of being too much for me, so I can‘t do more than three. I feel like I get the most reading done when I read two at a time because if I don‘t feel like reading one book, I‘ll usually feel like reading the other, whereas if I‘m only reading one book and I don‘t feel like reading it, I just won‘t read. So, two is preferred for me, but 1-3 is my range. #TuesdayTidbits

I read several reviews about this book back before I added it to my TBR, and they all mentioned that there was a lot of science. I thought, sure that‘s fine. I can handle that... Oh my god, there is so much though! 🙃

Riveted_Reader_Melissa It‘s a looong book, but I enjoyed it. There was a lot to think about in there. 13mo
shanaqui But is it interesting science?! 13mo
shadowspeak17 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa That‘s good. I‘m really wanting more to think about from it, honestly (besides the science), but I don‘t feel like I‘m getting that from it right now. Hopefully, I‘ll feel differently by the end. 13mo
shadowspeak17 @shanaqui Hahaha, some of it is interesting. I don‘t mind so much that there‘s a lot of science. My issue is more that I‘m feeling like there‘s so much of the science parts that it‘s actually taking away from other areas of the story. I wish it were more balanced, I guess is what I‘m trying to say. 13mo

EstelaV Hahah it's a good theme... actually seveneves is answering a question that popped up when I was reading 172 Hours On the Moon... the book barely touched on "blowing up" the moon... it was one line and then never addressed again. That book did that alot had a lot of smaller great ideas it didnt do anything with.... and I was like what if the moon did explode how does that affect tides and long term earth living... well seveneves is on one scenario! 13mo

This book took me way longer than expected to finish. I liked the concept and the overall plot but I thought sometimes he focused too much on the mechanics of the equipment and less on the people. Also the transition between the 2 sections was jarring and that's when I lost interest, but it picked up by the end.

Seveneves turned out to be suspenseful and absolutely gripping towards the end of each storyline. However, the action takes quite a bit of time to build up and there is A LOT of expository detail early on. I could argue that there is so much detail about in the first 200 pages that it bogs down the first storyline, but without it, I believe the bigger picture would be missing something. My kind of science fiction. Worth the ending. 8/10.

I‘m on the fence over the tagged book because it was really interesting BUT there was way too much science for me too give it a solid thumbs up. The novel was swamped by the author‘s over abundant details.

During the 1920s, many who had not been able to bring themselves to accept the loss of life in the trenches and the subsequent influenza epidemic had fallen prey to the belief that they could communicate with their lost loved ones from beyond the grave. They had, in fact, sidestepped grief by convincing themselves that nothing had happened.”

LectricSheep @susanw That‘s kind of what I do, actually! The journal in this photo is a master size Leuchtturm that has most of my reading spreads in it, and I love it.

susanw @LectricSheep I don‘t track daily reading. I have a page every month that I write what I‘m reading with a start/finish date, and gender. Also a page for short thoughts if it‘s a book for book club. But I have an excel spread sheet that goes much deeper. (Publication date, genre, medium, library/own, translated, author of colour etc) But I want more space for thoughts, and a spreadsheet is so boring to look at. Do you like the larger Leuchtturm? 2y
LectricSheep @susanw I have a spreadsheet too, and I‘d never trade it for an analog system, since the appeal of searchability is so strong. But I‘m like you— I can never write any of my thoughts down in the spreadsheet: it‘s too clunky. I love having a larger notebook, but it‘s HUGE— bigger than 8.5x11”— I never bring it with me anywhere.

LectricSheep Can I ask you about Seveneves? I started it and got only about 50 pages in. My memory could be wrong, but I think I got overwhelmed by the many different characters and the “hard sci fi” feel. What did you like about it? I think I might just not have been in the right mood, so hearing your thoughts might give me a push to retry it. 😅 2y

sprainedbrain @LectricSheep First, I listened to the audio... I like to do that with big books sometimes. The audio is excellent, btw. I enjoyed all of the different characters, but my favorite thing about the book is how it combines science and philosophy. Watching human kind deal with the end of life on Earth as we know it was fascinating to me. I seriously can‘t look at the moon now without thinking of this book. (edited) 2y
