About this deal

There, through her eyes, we see the railway system, the market squares, quarters, and all the other astonishing things this mysterious astronomical wonder has to offer. And not only that, it includes a version of the Singularity, a vast space battle across a vast number of realities, a closer-to-home apocalypse, and massive geo-political rivalries right here on Earth. So yes, highly interesting turn of events that were packed in writing that was suspenseful from the first to the last page. To make matters more confusing, some of the politicians kept switching allegiances or revealing their true motives even before I got to understand their original pretense, and thus fully appreciate the switch they pulled. I never tried touching the square root of space-time before so I cannot attest to whether it is in any way similar to trying to enter the singularity (which I have also never attempted for some reason).

Eventually, she enters the tunnel, travels down the Way, and meets the people who fled in the asteroid, her descendants. They discover that the interior has been hollowed out, and is full of equipment and even has people living in it. On the first cover you included, note the clever and careful use of the word “may” in that Washington Post quote.It helps that Greg Bear is a physicist and mathematician, and his knowledge impelled him to make use of modern theoretical physics in ways that previous sci-fi authors couldn’t but which every subsequent author would attempt to emulate and tune to their own songs. The description of the war is NATO’s most closely guarded secret, and politicians race to prevent a war in Patricia’s own universe. Scientists theorize that the shockwave thus generated will protect them from the blast of stellar plasma, while simultaneously sealing open gates along the Way and destroying their enemies, the Jart.

Eon is a classic sci-fi book featuring one of the most beloved tropes of the genre, the Big Dumb Object.It's overwhelming the way I love to be overwhelmed by authors like Stephen Baxter, Kim Stanley Robinson, Cixin Liu, and even Adrian Tchaikovsky. For example, Patricia is supposed to be a brilliant mathematician whose theories precede those that enable the construction of the Stone’s seventh chamber and the Way. S. Army, the State Department, the International Food Protection Association, and Homeland Security on matters ranging from privatizing space to food safety, the frontiers of microbiology and genetics, and biological security. On the other hand, more time could have been allowed to develop the many characters and their own story lines, the esoteric concepts more carefully explored if it was spread out over several books.
