Book Description

April 27 2004
Richard Baedecker thinks his greatest challenge was walking on the moon, but then he meets a mysterious woman who shows him his past. Join Baedecker as he comes to grips with the son and wife he lost in his passion for space exploration, his forgotten childhood and the loss he experienced during the death-flight of the Challenger. The most difficult exploration of his life is not the cold, rocky crevices of the moon, but the warm interior of his heart. Brilliant and beautifully written, PHASES OF GRAVITY is a masterpiece about love and loss that transports readers far beyond the confines of space and time.

5.0 out of 5 stars God, I love Dan Simmons Feb. 27 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldnt put it down March 12 2004
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Taking Stock Jan. 20 2002
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Un libro indescriptible March 8 2001
By Jano
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.
