The Freeze-Frame Revolution (Sunflower Cycle) Reviews
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
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.
I’ve waited, and waited, and waited, and then I had it. First, pirated copies leaked online, but I kept waiting. Then my pre-order arrived, and still I waited. Then I was at the beach, and I waited some more. You see, reading a new Peter Watts book is like making love to a beautiful woman – it should not be rushed.
Should I even be reviewing this? Probably not. I mean, Watts is the writer I want to be. He writes what I would be writing, if I had the chops. All I can do is squee in glee that I ge ...more
I’m always amazed at Peter Watts’ ability to incorporate scientific fact with well written plot. Added attraction in this novella was a hidden message! There are also several short stories in this universe I’ll be tracking down.
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
I really wanted to like The Freeze-Frame Revolution more than I actually did, but in the end it was just too far into hard sci-fi territory for me.
The concept is clever -- a ship filled with 30 000 or so crew members is on a long-term mission to build wormhole bridges throughout the universe. And by long-term, I'm not kidding! We're talking 65 million years (so far!) here. Each crew member is kept in deep freeze most of the time, with brief few-day periods of being thawed to assist the ship's A ...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
Every time I read Peter Watts, I find myself looking up words that I had no idea existed. I like to think of myself as a pretty smart guy, and Watts' books blow a hole in that idea every single time. I love them despite this. Or maybe because of it. It is a joy to see someone work at the very top of their game and make it look so effortless. Watts invents whole worlds to support his stories and novels, and they are so well-engineered that they are practically invisible, humming along quietly in ...more
