Back again this week with Worthy Wednesday Wishlist. The book up on the list this week is Seveneves by Neal Stephenson which came out in 2015. I've been waiting to read this one for a long time and I know I'm late but it's been hard to find. Here's what it's about. The synopsis is from Collider.com.
"The novel, which hit shelves last year, begins with humanity in dire straights as a catastrophic event renders Earth uninhabitable. The world’s nations subsequently band together to devise a plan to ensure humanity’s survival, which involves sending pioneers into the far reaches of outer space. But then the book jumps 5,000 years into the future, with the progeny of these pioneers now spanning seven distinct races and three billion strong. They set out on an ambitious journey of their own—a return to Earth."
I love the concept of this. People that had ancestors originally from Earth set out to rediscover their own roots. I'm not sure how probable it is but it's interesting nonetheless. If any of you have read it or heard of it I would be interested in hearing back from you.
Please comment with any of your opinions.
