    Inhaltsangabe

    The astounding new novel from the master of science fiction. What would happen if the world were ending?

    When a catastrophic event renders the Earth a ticking time bomb, it triggers a feverish race against the inevitable. An ambitious plan is devised to ensure the survival of humanity far beyond our atmosphere. But unforeseen dangers threaten the intrepid pioneers, until only a handful of survivors remain....

    Five thousand years later, their progeny - seven distinct races now three billion strong - embark on yet another audacious journey into the unknown, to an alien world utterly transformed by cataclysm and time: Earth.

    A writer of dazzling genius and imaginative vision, Neal Stephenson combines science, philosophy, technology, psychology, and literature in a magnificent work of speculative fiction that offers a portrait of a future that is at once extraordinary and eerily recognizable. He explores some of our biggest ideas and perplexing challenges in a breathtaking saga that is daring, engrossing, and altogether brilliant.

    Not as brilliant as said to be

    After reading " The rise and fall of the D.O.D.O." I learned that "Seveneves" is considered to be a better work of fiction.
    I cannot understand these critique.
    First of all, the books first part is to long and meandering compared to the rest. The cover descrition talks about a future senario, but almost half of it is about the presence.
    secondly, a book about " seven eves" i.e. females manages to have male lead characters and more detailed description of the qualities of their respected love interests from the male point of view than development of the female eves. Aida for examle remains highly two dimensional.
    thirdly, when finally interesting philisophicall discussions arise between the eves, they are cut short by literaly placing a bomb on the conference room threatening to kill humanity off if they continoue talking. what a sad, violent and masculin approach to problem solving.

    Erfindungsreich aber etwas langatmig

    Eigentlich sind es ja 2 Bücher in einem. Die Handlung zieht sich episch über beide Teile. Gefallen haben mir die zahlreichen innovativen Ideen und manchmal wird es auch richtig spannend, aber leider nur manchmal. Die Protagonisten werden gut und glaubhaft beschrieben, da ist es dann ein Nachteil (Achtung Spoiler) wenn sich die Handlung über Jahrtausende zieht, denn so lange lebt naturgemäß niemand. Aber am Schluss hängt alles glaubhaft zusammen. Für meinen Geschmack ist das Buch aber zu lang, für 30 Stunden passiert nicht ausreichend viel, weshalb manchmal die Motivation zum Weiterlesen/hören gering ist. Es ist definitiv kein page turner. Die Sprache ist anspruchsvoll, ich habe daher öfter zwischen Hörbuch und ebook gewechselt (whispersync ist großartig) um alles zu verstehen.

    Powerful start, meek finish

    The first part is powerful imaginative storytelling. Worth reading/listening/buying. After the 5000 year break it's as if Stephenson has lost track: vague sociological ramblings alternate with a weak plot as if the author just wanted to finish the damn thing, leaving out a multitude of possibilities.

    Ein Herrlicher SF Roman

    Die Erde geht unter und die Menschheit versucht zu überleben. Im Weltall und tief Untergrund. Weiter werde ich nicht Spoileren.
    Neal Stephenson ist es erneut gelungen ein Originalen und sehr intelligenten SF Roman zu schreiben. Stundenlang Lesespass, Schmökern bis der Arzt kommt.

    Last Part boring

    First two parts were fine and made sense. The third part was explaining what happened after quite compact 2nd one. I think it could be omitted.

    Excellent story with a few holes, poor speaker

    I want to give this book 5 stars so bad, but I can’t. The story is amazing and really intense.

    The speaker really ruined it for me though. The different accents he tries to go for are either plain wrong or really cringy. They also change for the same characters a lot during the book. I made myself listen to the whole thing anyway as the story is actually that good.

    Mixed feelings

    I really wanted to like this book, but somehow it's not amazing. Good concepts, but poor execution. Some parts were interesting and well written, but I often found it scattered and characters were not built out all that well.

    Well-written hard SF with some iconsistencies

    It's a great story, and, in contrast to others, I also liked the second part. In fact, I was even looking forward to listening to it, and it did not disappoint: It plausibly explains the concentration of the human race on breeding over the first millennia after Year 0, chiefly because of the utter absence of other/higher scientific priorities. It's not without flaws, though; the story has some illogical things going on, which I'll illustrate as follows (spoiler alert!): * Why don't they recycle dead bodies instead of jettisoning them off into space? * Why did no one confront the archies with the fact that the catastrophe was caused by JBF's spoof asteroid confusing the preambulator so that it couldn't deal with the real one? * How did the survivors at Cleft ever get back into their hacked computer system without any IT expert at hand? * Why does Moira's genetic equipment work on Cleft with little to no gravity, while it was packed away in the beginning exactly with the argument that it won't work without gravity? * Why does none of the Seven Eves suggest to genetically remove narcissism from the human genome or discuss at least the feasibility of it in the light of JBF's constant ramblings? * Why, even 5000 years later at a population of 3 billion humans, haven't those seven races mixed into an indistinguishable amalgamation as proposed by science today?

    Brillante, technische Tiefe; suboptimaler Erzähler

    Für alle, deren Details und Tiefe über Story gehen. Oft verteilt Seveneves ab einem Ort der Handlung über ganze Kapitel, um auf die Details eines einzigen Sachverhaltes einzugehen. Tauche tief in die Welt aktueller Science Fiction ab!

    Weniger wäre mehr

    Der dritte Teil (wie einige andere bereits geschrieben haben), macht einiges kaputt. Viele Stellen sind deutlich zu umfassend beschrieben, anderes (zumindest für mich interessanteres) geht unter. Die Stimmimitationen wirken auf mich oft lächerlich und absolut falsch betont. Ich habe mich oft dabei erwischt die Dialoge im Kopf noch mal mit angenehmeren Stimmen und angemessener Betonung nachzusprechen.
    Insgesamt bietet die Grundidee ein sehr interessantes Szenario, welches hier teils gut und teils nicht so gut verarbeitet wurde.
    Den dritten Teil kann man überspringen und hat damit etwas, dem ich 4 Sterne geben würde
