Seveneves is so much more than science fiction set in space. It feels preparatory, as Stephenson tends to spend a lot time on the technicalities of orbital mechanics, but Stephenson also makes it clear what would really matter in such a catastrophic situation. Political and philosophical existentialism with a great narrative. It is compellingly readable (in the way you would think a story about the moon blowing up and humanity ending would be).— From Seveneves
“In this exciting and cerebral epic spanning 5,000 years, Stephenson explores the effects of a devastating catastrophe on the course of humanity. After the moon is shattered by an unknown agent, small groups of humans survive the ensuing holocaust - some by digging deep underground, others by seeking refuge in space. Millennia later, the separate branches of mankind converge, inexorably changed. I was completely consumed by this book, terrified and awed by Stephenson's vision of our future. This is essential science fiction.”
