MORROW Everything I love about Stephenson’s writing is here—the compelling characters, the intense action, and the in-depth engagement with technology—except now it’s the end of the world. The moon has shattered, the debris are going to wipe Earth clean, and humanity has roughly two years to get it together to send something—anything—up into space to survive. This incredible book covers the nail-biting venture to create sustainable life beyond Earth’s atmosphere and then jumps far into the future to survey the results. Plus, we’re talking about humanity, so of course politics and ambition do as much damage as any bolide strike. Seveneves is fantastic.
