From Arthur C. Clarke, the brilliant mind that brought us A Space Odyssey , and Stephen Baxter, one of the most cogent SF writers of his generation, comes a novel of a day, not so far in the future, when the barriers of time and distance have suddenly turned to glass. When a brilliant, driven industrialist harnesses cutting-edge physics to enable people everywhere, at trivial cost, to see one another at all times—around every corner, through every wall—the result is the sudden and complete abolition of human privacy, forever. Then the same technology proves able to look backward in time as well.

The book also includes using the wormholes into the past to explore the history of our planet. For books that Arthur C. Clarke, my favorite author, cowrote with someone else, I'm never sure how to give credit to the right author for various aspects of the story. I had the same issue with all the books in the Rama series beyond the first one, but I cherished those novels, too.
Even so, this is one of my favorites. I didn't discover this book until , but it affected me in a big way.
As someone who believes that science and technology have the power to remake our existence, and maybe even serve as a means to technologically resurrect us, I loved this book on a conceptual level. Bring on the Singularity. The best. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Splendid work by A. Clarke and Stephen Baxter.
The idea of the novel is greater than the novel itself. Life, Death, combining Google with a cosmic micro wormhole. The actual physics of wormhole and the implementation of nanotech, in information gathering, is a long way off.
Having said this, a bit of the theoretical physics has caught up on paper with the dreams of the authors. History then, becomes known, and privacy vanishes. In exchange for that, let me say, tomorrow opens up.
The Light of Other Days
So, Buy. I don't know if Baxter of Clarke did most of the writing here, but it seems like classic Clarke. Good ideas, laid out fairly well, but with a cast of characters totally devoid of interest. At the end, I still couldn't keep them straight, and found that I didn't care.
The book will make you think, and that's a worthy thing. Despite the byline about being about the transformation of humanity, I found it dark and negative. If you did not read the appendix, you missed the entire point.
Don't forget, Arthur Clarke is a real scientist, not just a sci-fi author. Hardcover Verified Purchase. There aren't many books that will make me put my life on hold to finish it, and this was one of them. It's not just the great writing technique, it's not just the highly-creditialed authors, and it's not just the interesting action. Like all Arthur Clarke books, this one makes you think. In this case, you're left in a deep state of distraction about the sociological consequences of a radically invasive and dangerous technology.
Did anyone see the articles about Bill Joy, the co-founder of Sun Microsystems who said, "We are dealing now with technologies that are so transformatively powerful that they threaten our species"? BUY IT!
See a Problem?
You're not often going to read such a well thought-out and relevant work of science fiction. Probably one of the most thought provoking books out there.
If you think Fahrenheit was good this is better. It takes a concept we all secretly want to believe in and gives an intriguing and undeniable look into its possibilities but also the possibilities of human nature. What would we do with this what would it lead to? What would we discover about ourselves and would we like that discovery? I have read some of their other collaborations such as Times Eye and Manifold Time. Those novels are good but this one is better. I was immediately drawn in by the main characters as they first discover and then learn to use a new and exciting technology.
The novel really gets into both the hard scientific facts and fanciful theories about time travel and also delvels into a the very suprising and specific ways in wich this new discovery affects all the main characters. It was this attention to the way in wich a simple at first invention in a laboratory can quickly enter into and ultimately change all of society on a massive scale that I found so exciting. The "worm-cam" communication device invented to better out-run the competition in the game of immediate sound bite news and gotcha journalism soon evolves into a "past-viewer" that throws all of human history in all its gory, confusing, frightening detail up on the big screen of social consciousness.
This is the backdrop for the story of one family struggling to make it's way forward thru a fast changing world dominated by spying and voyeurism. The later advancements of this technolgy first invented simply as a commincations device turn out to have consequences at least as profound for all of mankind when some people begin to voluntarily merge into a sort of super-mind. Tv was invented to enable sight and sound communication across great distances.
