Year: 2005

Rating: 8 of 10

This book won the 2006 Hugo award and in my opinion was completely worthy of the prize. A massive galactic story but with plenty of action grounded on earth and great character development. Super interesting use of relativity and time alteration are an integral part of the plot and makes the space travel more plausible and fascinating. This is another one of those massive scale stories but not difficult to follow because of the way that it is handled. I enjoyed how this book took on huge concepts that effect all mankind and its place in the universe but at the same time kept it human, about human reaction to incredible events, and didn’t get too lost in the technicalities while still utilizing science as a major plot point. It also addressed philosophical and religious issues making it a truly well rounded read.
