FILM TIE IN: Interstellar - Greg Keyes
Release Date: 07/11/14
THE END OF EARTH WILL NOT BE THE END OF US
From acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Triology, Inception), this is the chronicle of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage. At stake are the fate of a planet… Earth… and the future of the human race.
I love Greg Keyes and as a fan of Christopher Nolan, it did feel to me that it could be a great partnership and whilst I haven’t seen the film yet, I hate it when a concept relies so heavily on Science goes into what I like to think of gobbled-gook so that I don’t understand how it functions.
Here in this rather short book, Greg manages to get to the heart of the matter without bogging the reader down with all the technical detail explaining the concepts rather succinctly. The prose is solid, the pace OK and when added to an arc that manages to get to the characters makes this a book that will allow the reader the chance to get the story without the expensive trip to the picture.
