    Description

    The number one New York Times best-selling author returns with a visionary technothriller about climate change.

    Neal Stephenson’s sweeping, prescient new novel transports listeners to a near-future world where the greenhouse effect has inexorably resulted in a whirling-dervish troposphere of superstorms, rising sea levels, global flooding, merciless heat waves and virulent, deadly pandemics.

    One man has a Big Idea for reversing global warming, a master plan perhaps best described as 'elemental'. But will it work? And just as important, what are the consequences for the planet and all of humanity should it be applied?

    As only Stephenson can, Termination Shock sounds a clarion alarm, ponders potential solutions and dire risks, and wraps it all together in an exhilarating, witty, mind-expanding speculative adventure.

    Commentaires

    "Neal Stephenson has never been afraid of engaging with big ideas within genre forms, and Termination Shock might be his most visionary, and timely, book yet." (Chicago Review of Books)

    "Wonderfully human...ingenious and sometimes prophetic.... Stephenson has become a totemic figure for 21st century scientific writers." (Telegraph)

    "Stephenson’s reputation as a sci-fi titan is deserved." (Sunday Times)

    Oddly unsatisfying

    This is a very well written story, with good pacing and read by a great narrator. It just isn't that interesting though. The characters are all interesting and the backdrop has lots of potential yet by the end I couldn't really say that it delivered a wow moment. I'm normally a fan of Stephenson (I even quite liked Reamde) but this one fell a little flat. Maybe it's the start of a series and if so then I'll be happy to follow along.

    Pass the early chapters, worth it

    The expository dumps of boring biographies almost made me give up. Glad I didn't.

    Stephenson always a hero

    but....this book is amazingly boring..
    like truly boring, highly derivative with emphasis in all the wrong places.
    and I survived sevenevess and reamde (I actually quite like that one ).

    I tried for days... and when I see 8 hours left... in still not even understanding what's the issue !!
    disappointing Neal....very

    Unfinished

    The book leaves storylines open and unresolved. Overall the pacing of the story is glacial. The author really loves his theories of sociopolitical impact and technology and that takes most of the book. Characters that make a large part of the book are more or less unceremoniously and pointlessly disposed off.
    It feels like the first book in a trilogy if the pacing remains unchanged. Overall my worst experience yet with one of my favorite authors of all times.

    that's all?

    Really, that's all? That's really all there is to the story? A little bit of shooting around the 'biggest gun in the world'? All these words, all these meaningless dialogues for a little shooting in the end?
    This story is so hollow, i can hardly even think of how to place a spoiler. Or would you say, it's already a spoiler, when i mention the 'biggest gun in the world'? Not seriously, right?
    Does it really take so many words to come to this... shooting around?
    Why did you even bring up the boring sex life of a queen? Was it supposed to add at least a little bit of spice? It didn't. It just added some trivial content.

    Wonderful, if slightly marred by performance

    The only gripe is that non-Americas accents (many of the prominent characters have Dutch, British Scottish, Australian and other accents) are poorly performed, in some cases verging on caricature, which distracts from the thorough (if dark) enjoyment of yet another poignant Stephenson novel.
