Seveneves - Neal Stephenson An interesting read. I expected to be very excited about what happens after humans return to Earth, but by the time I got to that part of the story, it had lost all its steam for me. I guess I just really wanted to know if and how humans survived and began to procreate again, and once I knew that, the rest felt like a rather lengthy denouement to me.

I was mildly intrigued when they discovered that humans had survived the Hard Rain and had reemerged, but the intrigue didn't keep my attention long enough through all the politics of getting the Seven together and whatnot. Plus, all my heroes were dead by then, so I was a little bored. I liked seeing the new world, all the cool technology, and the evolution of how the new generations regarded the Eves, but it wasn't enough to keep me in the story for some reason.
