The Freeze-Frame Revolution (Sunflower Cycle) Reviews
This new novella by Peter Watts is part of a series of stories he has been writing, on and off, for some time now. The series seems to be called Sunflowers. The other stories to date (Hotshot, The Island, and Giants) are available for free download from the author's website: .
The basic idea is this: a group of human beings live and work on a spaceship that is circling the galaxy, at a substantial fraction of light speed, in order to create wormholes - so that future spaceships from Earth will be ...more
The Freeze-Frame Revolution is an epic science fiction novella. Set across the vastness of both universe and time we follow the mutiny of the Eriophora crew against their AI controller Chimp.
How do you overcome an omnipresent keeper when you are only awake for a few days per millennia? A keeper who decides if and when you wake up?
This is hard sci-fi. Watts does not stop to explain every detail, character, or slang but all the information is there if you are willing to do a little work as a read ...more
The Freeze-Frame Revolution by Peter Watts is a very highly recommended, dark, hard science fiction novel.
"Sixty-six million years, by the old calendar. That’s how long we’ve been on the road."
The construction ship Eriophora was built inside an asteroid and is controlled by AI called the Chimp. The crew of the Eriophora, referred to as spores, were all raised specifically to spend their lives building wormhole gates throughout space to make interstellar travel more accessible. They spend most of ...more
The Freeze-Frame Revolution by Peter Watts is a highly imaginative far futured space romp that is one enjoyable ride. The concepts covered here are top notch and not hard to follow at all. The sheer time frame covered makes this book a cool read.
Peter Watts is one of my favorite authors.
A great read.
Ahoy there me mateys! I received this sci-fi eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. So here be me honest musings . . .
This book was a bit of a stretch for me given that it is more hard sci-fi and physics is not me friend. At all. But I have always heard wonderful things about this author and the premise was too awesome not to give it a shot. And I be very glad I did.
So basically this story is told from the perspective of Sunday Ahzmundin. She is a human crew member aboard a ship n ...more
I wanted to like this novella a lot more than I actually did.
Years ago when I first discovered Starfish, Watts’ writing felt like a revelation: Here was someone who could do hard science fiction right, who had done some hard digging into the scientific literature, thought a while, and come up with a well-reasoned “what if” near-future scenario. A tremendously bleak future, yes, but full of detail: it was never hard to imagine how that world arose from our present, what it would look like, what t ...more
Watts is the only hard sci-fi author I’ve found so far whose writing is so dark it’s practically black. I actually stumbled on him somehow somehow through the horror community. Reading Blindsight was like having a religious experience. Freeze-Frame was just as enjoyable and probably more accessible due to the novella-ish length. I imagine Peter Watts isn’t for everybody. For people with a simultaneous interest in sci-fi and horror (or dark fiction,) he’s worth a look. If there are any other auth ...more
У Питера Уоттса, судя по двум книгам, лучше всего получается строить свои миры из правдоподобных научных идей, но раскрутив некоторые из до совершенно диких пропорций. Такой подход мне очень импонирует.
И еще гнетущесть. Гнетущесть у него первоклассная.
Итак, у нас есть огромный космический корабль с искусственным интеллектом и кучей замороженных людей, которых отправили строить порталы в гиперпространство для будущей колонизации галактики. В основном ...more
