About this deal

So in Eon you get a big asteroid thing hanging up there in the sky which when they go and investigate they find it's bigger inside than it is outside.

The Stone’s original inhabitants have been evacuated into the Way at some time in its past, which is the explorers’ future. Alternate geometries, new forms of human society in the far-future, aliens some familiar and others inherently unknowable. Try to enter the singularity, and you translate yourself through a distance along some spatial coordinate.

Explorations and adventures inside “The Stone” (the name humans give to the gigantic asteroid shaped B. I was there, in the Thistledown, one of the team, ready to explore and learn and add to scientific knowledge and grow closer to myself and my teammates. Wow," said Russian Democratic Federal Leader of the Military Defence of the Milky Way Leader, Tessa Baryshnikov.

They discover that the interior has been hollowed out, and is full of equipment and even has people living in it. Re-reading this book I felt like I was entering through the bore-hole for the first time and experiencing the asteroid anew. The characters were a little too obvious, a little to "best-seller" shallow for my taste, but they fit their environment and had plausible motivations and actions. Math genius running around with a device to check the local value of π doesn’t make for hard sci fi.And to add fuel to the fire a mysterious object arrived in our solar system from who knows where that America gets to first and controls access to. The Way has all that, but for me personally (your feelings may well be different), the most interesting and exciting part of Bear's stories was the scientific backbone.

Il romanzo è scritto prima della caduta della Cortina di Ferro, ma i temi della guerra e delle contrapposizioni tra ideologie sono comunque (e purtroppo) attuali. Most of the characters were well written and very understandable given the situation they found themselves in (apart from Patricia whom was quite annoying at times). One of the best of these occurs in the second novel Eternity, when Patricia, one of the scientists, is trapped in an alternative universe where she finds herself in a place that seems a lot like ancient Egypt.And yes, if you're wondering, I do believe that nuclear weapons, so long as we allow them to exist, pose a very real threat to the survival of our civilization. Eon also did not have much of the morally contemplative ideas that I usually love to have in any SF title. I messed with it to be able to insert the read more tag where I wanted it, it would only insert after the copied text.
