Product description

Review

"No slim fables or nerdy novellas for Stephenson: his visions are epic, and he requires whole worlds-and, in this case, solar systems-to accommodate them....Wise, witty, utterly well-crafted science fiction."--Kirkus Reviews

"Well-paced over three parts covering 5,000 years of humanity's future, Stephenson's monster of a book is likely to dominate your 2015 sf-reading experience."--Booklist

"[Stephenson] plays with hard ballistics, hard genetics, hard sociology. And what thrills me, is that he makes it interesting. That he makes life and death in space about actual life and death ."--NPR Books

"Written in a wry, erudite voice...Seveneves will please fans of hard science fiction, but this witty, epic tale is also sure to win over readers new to Stephenson's work."--Washington Post

"Seveneves can be fascinating. . . . Insights into the human character shine like occasional full moons."--Boston Globe

"[A] novel of big ideas, but it's also a novel of personalities, of heart, and of a particular kind of hope that only comes from a Stephenson story. Science fiction fans everywhere will love this book."--BookPage

"Stephenson... knows the life-sustaining power of storytelling, since storytelling is what he does...Today's post-apocalyptic stories routinely aim to convey the loss of the old world through the personal losses of a few characters. Stephenson makes you feel the loss of Earth on the scale it deserves."--Salon

"This is hard sci-fi in a real and welcome sense, ruled by unremitting physical laws, unlike the negotiable rules of the action thriller."--Nature

"Stephenson's storytelling style combines the conversational and the panoramic, allowing him to turn his piercing gaze on the familiar aspects of a strange future, encompassing the barely conceivable detail by detail."--Seattle Times

"Stephenson's remarkable novel is deceptively complex, a disaster story and transhumanism tale that serves as the delivery mechanism for a series of technical and sociological visions... there's a ton to digest, but Stephenson's lucid prose makes it worth the while."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Product Description

The astounding new novel from the master of science fiction.
President Barack Obama’s summer reading choice and recently optioned by Ron Howard and IMAGINE to be made into a major motion picture.

THE EARTH WAS A TICKING TIME BOMB.

To ensure the survival they had to look beyond its atmosphere.

So they became pioneers.

Five thousand years later and their progeny form seven distinct races and they must journey to an alien: Earth.

A magnificent, visionary work of speculative fiction from a true visionary that will dazzle you with its depth, psychology and awesome imagination.
