The Freeze-Frame Revolution Reviews

    Jan 25, 2018
    Peter Watts is one of the best writers of science-fiction at work today, and criminally underrated. 'The Freeze-Frame Revolution' is a stand-alone novella set on an AI-run starship circling the galaxy; having launched in our relatively near future, it now finds itself millions of years...

    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 looke...

    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 t...

    This is some classy hard-hard SF. :) Black hole/worm hole drive using new and real theories? Hell yeah. But beyond that, I love the whole idea of short periods of wakefulness during a single trip that takes 65 million years. Add a rebellion against IBM... I mean HAL... I mean CH...

    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 A...

    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 ...

    Full review is here, on my blog. So, I?ll start out by saying that this story has a really unique and fascinating premise. Sunday Ahzmundin is part of a crew of 30,000 people that are flying through the galaxy on their spaceship, the Eriophora. I?m not sure I 100% understood the...

    Note: I received a copy of this novel via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinions on this book. I should start of by stating I don't read a lot of hard-sf based around AI... because I just don't get it. I am an absolute nightmare with anything re...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 4.5* I had been super curious about this book since I first read its synopsis on Netgalley. But then I was kind of afraid that it might be a bit too "science-y" for my b...

    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 description...

    GRAB IT! NOW! I just can't begin to tell you how much I loved this book. And I know for a fact I will be reading it again, and perhaps soon. There are just so many reasons why I could recommend it to you! It?s a book for the true scifi fan that manages to be refreshing and new, at ...

    Peter Watts is one of the hardest of hard SF writers, and one of my favorite authors, and Blindsight is one of my all-time favorite books. This new novella rides the cutting edge of physics and artificial intelligence, in telling the tale of a far-reaching journey into deep time (liter...

    I was waiting for this book, but perhaps without the proper enthusiasm. So I didn't read any reviews, blurbs, opinions.... and was completely unaware of any secret messages in the book. And then I opened the book and found a red letter on the very first page. And then another, on the s...

    What a wild ride that was. As crude a metaphor as I can give, this ouroboros of a novella deals with humanity and Humanity, the innerworlds and the outerworlds we were bred from and try to populate/save ourselves to. The speed of events, dragged on for centuries, millenia, aeons even, ...

    I wanted to like this novella a lot more than I actually did. Years ago when I first discovered Starfish, Watts? writing felt like a revelation: Here was someone who could do hard science fiction right, who had done some hard digging into the scientific literature, thought a while...

    First of all, this novella is not meant to be read on its own. Could be regarded as a standalone, but you?ll feel like something is missing. And that?s because it?s part of a series of stories, entitled the Sunflower cycle, which includes three more short ones (so far).* Publi...

    Really? Really? I am the only one who think this book is "meh"? Or Book Gnomes just put a different book into my hands? Author often throws sentences how much time has passed. 50 million years, 7 hundred years, 3 billion years, but ummm, whatever. It was just telling, not showin...

    Hard scifi reminiscent of classics like A Space Odyssey. If you like books about AIs on a spaceship, this one's for you. I love the concept of a ship of hundreds of crew only being awoken to work a few weeks or months every century or millennia to save on resources, and then having...

    This new novella by Peter Watts is part of a series of stories he has been writing, on and off, for some time now. The series seems to be called Sunflowers. The other stories to date (Hotshot, The Island, and Giants) are available for free download from the author's website: . The bas...

    I didn't think a sci-fi could be so boring. There were too many descriptions and scientific phrases even I, a dedicated sci-fi lover couldn't handle. If I'm to be perfectly honest, I didn't understand 70% of the book. The only parts I remotely understood were the dialogues but the rest...

    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 t...

    Great concept, snappy writing. A rather fresh take on the starship-and-its-humans-controlled-by-an-oppressive-AI. Plus a bit of mystery and suspense. Among other things, a nice metaphor about the non-existence of free will. The only thing that did not fully work was the codes th...

    Ahoy there me mateys! I received this sci-fi eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. So here be me honest musings . . . This book was a bit of a stretch for me given that it is more hard sci-fi and physics is not me friend. At all. But I have always heard wonderful thi...

    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 probabl...
