4.0 out of 5 stars The neo lost-at-sea novel, 2 May 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tau Zero (S.F. MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
This is one stunning story, in concept and execution, detailing how a small crew of an interstellar starship react when they realise due to an incident during their voyage that they will never be able to return home.

In terms of space-novels this is the single story that has most accurately been able to give an impression of the sheer vastness of space and time, and what pointless forgetable little blips human lives are in it. The story itself is comparable to an old lost-at-sea story, the crew is stranded aboard their ship, not entirely certain that they will ever be able to find a place to call their home again. In many ways this crew almost becomes a microcosm of the human species in the ways that they interact together and ultimately how they survive with each other.

An truly inspired story, I would consider an essential for any science fiction reader.
