Reviews

"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)
"Seveneves can be fascinating. . . . Insights into the human character shine like occasional full moons."--Boston Globe
"Seveneves offers at once [Stephenson's] most conventional science-fiction scenario and a superb exploration of his abiding fascination with systems, philosophies and the limits of technology.... Stephenson's central characters, mostly women, serve as a welcome corrective to science-fiction cliches."--Chicago Tribune
"[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
"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
"The huge scope and enormous depth of the latest novel from Stephenson is impressive... a major work of hard sf that all fans of the genre should read."--Library Journal (starred review)
"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
"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
