Daniel Suarez à 8 Summary

Arting an entire off world economy The potential rewards and personal risks are staggering but the competition is fierce and the stakes couldn't be higher Isolated and pushed beyond their breaking points Tighe and his fellow twenty first century adventurers ex soldiers former. In 2032 various billionaires are competing with each other to monetize space exploration One of the billionaires Nathan Joyce has started an asteroid mining company and wants to find a crew for the first manned expedition A collection of 440 candidates is assembled They have varying skills but they are linked by their daredevil natures Their number is to be winnowed down to 8 after rigorous training exercises and psychological evaluation Those selected will go on a 4 year mission to mine an asteroid Joyce shares the daredevil ualities of his candidates and assisted by Lukas Rochat a young lawyer specializing in space law he bulldozes over all laws and restrictions that might slow down his project This book had an interesting premise and parts of it were very exciting I especially liked the bootcamp like training Once on the asteroid there was a fair amount of technobabble that I generally ignored but I was fascinated by the concept of using the resources of the asteroid to create not only everything needed to sustain the lives of the crew but also to create the materials needed for the mining venture itself Most of the focus of the book was on the crew which was a good thing because the parts that focused on Joyce were very sketchy It felt like parts were left out Joyce andor Rochat would appear sporadically but their story line always felt like it needed further explanation There was also a chapter involving some of Joyce s creditors Their motives and actions made no sense and they were like cartoon characters However the crew was likable the science was intriguing and the book was entertaining There is room at the end for a seuel and I would read it I received a free copy of this book from the publisher

When itinerant cave diver James Tighe receives an invitation to billionaire Nathan Joyce's private island he thinks it must be a mistake But Tighe's uniue skill set makes him a prime candidate for Joyce's high risk venture to mine a near earth asteroid with the goal of kick st. There s gold in them thar asteroidsIn the near future commercial space exploration is growing but not fast enough to suit billionaire Nathan Joyce who believes that humanity s only chance of long term survival is to immediately start mining asteroids This will not only provide critical resources and advance the technologies to let people start living in space but it also could create an entirely new and sustainable economy Joyce is recruiting an multinational group of risk takers like cave diver James Tighe who have the skills necessary to be the first asteroid miners The mission will be unprecedented and dangerous but not all the threats come from being in spaceI love Daniel Suarez s books because he s great at looking at where we re at both technologically and as a society and then coming up with very plausible stories about what comes next Here he s selling the idea that humanity s future hinges not on colonizing the moon or Mars but instead on coming up with ways of living in space using the resources we could get from the hunks of rock floating around out there He s very persuasive on this point and his conclusions make a lot of sense I kept finding myself thinking that this could be the preuel to The Expanse series which finds humanity spread out through the solar systemIt helps that this isn t a tale filled with wide eyed optimism and there s a lot of cynical pragmatism in how the plot unfolds Suarez creates a world in which it s greed as much as anything that would make this happen and that getting this going would take the resources of the mega rich That certainly fits the direction we seem to be heading with guys like Elon Musk and Richard Branson putting big money into space But when you get people driven by profit margins and massive egos involved you can t really trust them to do the right thing for the greater good or even their own employees either Throw in a bunch of murky laws related to this and competing national interests and it s probably inevitable that mining asteroids will be just as cutthroat and messy as business on EarthIf you re into space stuff especially near future hard sci fi then there s a lot to like here Suarez is better at coming up with cool ideas and tech then he is writing about people but he does an adeuate job of creating a cast of characters and putting them in interesting and sometimes hazardous situations While a lot is wrapped up here the book also ends on what seems to be a pure seuel set up so I don t think we got the whole story but I ll be happy to check out the next one too 35 stars
