Seveneves is a thoroughly enjoyable book not only about the future, but also the past. I was amazed at how Stephenson jumped from hard sci-fi to a quick sociological, or historical, anecdote and even managed a little political commentary. I had to stop occasionally to talk to my fiancée about it and I even woke her up a few times when I would exclaim, a little too loudly, 'I knew it!'
This was the first Stephenson book that I read. I hope to get around to [book:Snow Crash|830] very shortly!
