The Freeze-Frame Revolution (Sunflower Cycle) Reviews
I received an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
“I’ll kill you if I can.”
“I’ll save you, if you let me.”
My rating: 4 stars
Let me start with this: if you love science fiction that really goes into the science aspect and has long descriptions about objects and happenings in space, and also you love stories about artificial intelligence, this story is for you. Personally, I found myself scrolling through a lot of the heavy science because it really wasn’t working for me, but I ...more
Un universo excepcional. El mejor Watts ha vuelto
Full review on my podcast, SFBRP episode #370.
Also read the other short stories with the same characters in the same world, in this order:
The Freeze-Frame Revolution
The short stories are available to download/read on the author's website: http://www.rifters.com/real/shorts.htm
This is some classy hard-hard SF. :) Black hole/worm hole drive using new and real theories? Hell yeah.

OK, so I obviously loved this... been waiting quite some time for it to give me some detail on events mentioned in The Island and Giants. For anyone with no idea of what the hell I'm talking about: read this short story available for free: http://rifters.com/real/shorts/PeterW... - there are two others (mentioned above) where this comes from, but they happen chronologically later - and then move straight to this novella if you like it... else never mind
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.
4.5 rounded up to 5 (Rating is for the entire Sunflower Cycle series so far)
I’ve held off reviewing this for some time now. Once I finished reading it, I just couldn’t fully wrap my head around what I had just read. In attempting to understand the story better, I went and looked at some other reviews of people who enjoyed the story to hopefully gather some details I may have missed. I’m so glad I did that because I found this great review by Claudia - https://www.goodreads.com/review/show..., wh ...more
