    Seveneves

    Another engaging and epic read from Neal Stephenson, perhaps the leading master of modern hard Sci fi. The first two thirds is riveting; that last third drags a bit at first as the reader becomes introduced to and engaged with new characters, technology and environment but then picks up quickly and interestingly. It is clearly set up for a sequel and I will definitely look forward to finding out more about the world spawned herein.

    Amazing book!

    This book is about 30% stuff happening and 70% background information - but for such good reason. The author has created entire cultures and technologies and built upon. It makes it feel real. I was blown away by this book.

    Neal Stephenson always takes you on a journey ...

    Epic educational irreverent super cool adventure read. The real challenge is finding something to keep up once you've finished. Awesome.

    Future Tense

    Typical Stephens0n. Long, well-researched, thought provoking, interesting characters, gripping and sadness whe it ends. I wanted it to be at least as long as The Baroque Trilogy! A carping criticism. Is 5,000 years long enough to evolve the way the seven races do, or the Pingers? Language might also shift rather more dramatically? Nonetheless A GOOD READ!!!

    Pointless

    What starts as an interesting idea becomes mired in overly wordy descriptions of mundane elements irrelevant to the amateurish attempt at a coherent story. I kept hoping it would get better, or at least get to a point or thematic idea, alas this never came to fruition.
