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).

Wonder takes place in Northern Ireland, and speaks, to me, of spring. The fresh calm that comes with new buds and beautiful twilit evenings, but also the pain and heartbreak and scars of einer. Read it over a plate of spring risotto.

Think Ridley Scott's Prometheus meets The Day The Earth Stood Still. Okay, so those are movies, but that's how incredibly real and scarily tangible this book is (and it will be adapted to film). I fell in head first, so will you, and if you pick it up today and finish it tonight, don't worry, the second installment is out in April!
