    Two-thirds of a good book

    by Ian T. Healy on 25 May, 2015

    I really enjoyed the first two-thirds of SEVENEVES. The plot motored right along, characters were in real peril, and you never knew for sure who'd still be alive by the next page. The characters were pretty blatant archetypes, but I think that's secondary for fans of hard science fiction. I enjoy a good technical tale as much as anyone else, but in the end, stories need to be about people, not things and processes. The latter, while interesting, is better suited for textbooks and game manuals. Make no mistake, the first two-thirds of this book are fun, and I read for lengthy periods. more

    Neal Stephenson is back at his best with Seveneves - aka Neil deGrasse Tyson and Jeff Bezos save the human race

    by Peter J. Ward on 15 Mar, 2015

    I've been a Neal Stephenson fan since the early 90s when I read Snow Crash and I've been a massive fan ever since. He has pulled off an amazing feat, he CONSISTENTLY writes novels that are powered by profound ideas, well-developed characters, and hair-raising action. His earlier novels had all of these elements (and I love them deeply) but as he moved into "long form" novels like Cryptonomicon, The Baroque Cycle, Anathem, and Reamde, he put more emphasis on the ideas and how they develop and change over time. This is most evident in Cryptonomicon and The Baroque Cycle which take place at different points throughout history and follow the development of science, technology, money, politics, and... well, lots of stuff. I like all his work but I can dig why it isn't everyone's cup of tea. The math-intensive asides in Anathem and the discussions of various royal lineages and alchemical concepts in the Baroque Cycle are just a bit too much for many people and I also got bogged down in them. But it is ALWAYS worth the effort to see where he takes the story thereafter. So now that my fanboy preamble is over, let's check in with his new novel, Seveneves. more

    Great technical guide for escaping a doomed planet,
    but not much of a novel

    by J. A Magill on 7 Apr, 2015

    Neal Stephenson isn't a writer to shy away from BIG topics. With “Seveneves” he returns to his hard sci-fi roots, but that doesn't mean he's scaled back his interest in big broad topics. Given that, this novel will no doubt create a lot of excitement among Stephenson fans. Unfortunately, just as the this author's strengths – a passion for details and hard science – have only sharpened, his weaknesses have likewise only gotten more so. more

    A Science Fiction Masterpiece

    by Paul Cook on 10 Jan, 2015

    As a number of readers have pointed out, there are parts of this book that drag. To me, those parts were absolutely vital for one important reason: This book is about an existential catastrophe that is rare in science fiction and Stephenson is going to tell a long story and sets the pacing early on as one that is just fast enough to keep the reader interested, but not so bogged down that the reader loses interest (as can happen in the novels of Kim Stanley Robinson, for example). And Stephenson has come up with a conceit that, while not original to science fiction, is dealt with very, very seriously (which is rare in science fiction): In wake of the unexplained destruction of the Moon, humans have three years to get as many humans into space safely before pieces of the Moon rain down and destroy everything on the surface of the planet. more

Dan Brown

Daniel "Dan" Brown (born June 22, 1964) is an American author of thriller fiction who is best known for the 2003 bestselling novel The Da Vinci Code. Brown's novels are treasure hunts set in a 24-hour period, and feature the recurring themes of cryptography, keys, symbols, codes, and conspiracy theories. His books have been translated into 52 languages, and as of 2012, sold over 200 million copies. Three of them,"Inferno"(upcoming),'The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, have been adapted into films.

Brown's novels that feature the lead character Robert Langdon also include historical themes and Christianity as motifs, and as a result, have generated controversy. Brown states on his website that his books are not anti-Christian, though he is on a 'constant spiritual journey' himself, and says that his book The Da Vinci Code is simply "an entertaining story that promotes spiritual discussion and debate" and suggests that the book may be used "as a positive catalyst for introspection and exploration of our faith."
