Phases of Gravity is one of the first Dan Simmons books I read (after being hooked by Hyperion) and is definately one of the best. Simmons has an incredible style, and in Phases of Gravity it really shines. Read it just to be able to really appreciate the last line of the book, one of the most beautiful and moving phrases I have ever read. A truly great book.

I'm 22, I read a lot. Dan Simmons has recently become my all time favorite author after reading the Hyperion books, Ilium, Carrion Comfort, and a few of his others. One I checked out and bought through Amazon was this one Phases of Gravity. It already has some outstandingly written reviews that I just read through, so I can't really elaborate much on what they've said. Basically, this is not my genre of book, but damnit I'm committed to finding a book Dan Simmons has written that isn't absolutley genuinely phenomonal. Hahaha! Well, I haven't yet. I read this book in three or four days, and loved every minute of it. It's such a refreshing departure from everyones formula of "Save the world!" and "Gasp! People are getting eaten somewhere!" It's a down to earth (haha) book about Richard Baedecker and his search to find himself. It's amazing, because being one of the few people to go to the Moon and walk on it, it deals with his life afterwards and how he seems to be unable to find any meaning in anything. The book takes you through what basically amounts to a year or two of his life. I certainly walked away with something, a feeling almost palpable. I just finished it 10 minutes ago and I STILL have the chills!!! Great book! Not for everyone, but fantastic nonetheless. And it's not a long read either, so what have you got to lose? Give it a shot!

Dan Simmons has done something very rare in writing today. He makes you think. He has written a book about taking stock of ones life. His protangonist has been to the moon, which would make him the envy of many people. Yet, his life is not working. So the story weaves its magic on the reader. As the story proceeds, some of lifes questions are answered for the hero, but not all of them. There is a sense of disquiet that pervades the story. Better yet, melancholy best describes this work. If you going through your own personal search for the meaning of life or want a sense of what it could be like, then I highly recommend this novel. There are no aliens or monsters with this read, but it stands along with the best of what he has written. It is truly an amazing piece.

Efectivamente, no lo puedo describir. Sólo puedo decir que cuanto leía me envolvía y me parecía estar viviéndolo. Especialmente la forma en que se sentían los personajes, sus más íntimos estados de ánimo. No estaban escritos, pero yo los sentía. Y el calor de la India, y la oscuridad de la noche, y la inefable cualidad de ella...
Lo compré sin saber nada de él, porque me gustó Hyperion. Son de géneros completamente distintos, y me gustó igualmente.
