Amazing, epic, transcendant. The best book I've read this year so far. Attanasio doesn't write sci-fi, he writes the mythology of the future.

Another epic sci-fi novel, that literally spans centuries, in case you are wondering what the title signifies. It opens in the year 2000 and quickly dispenses of the entire 21st century in one quick chapter. The final chapter takes place one thousand years later, with many of the main characters still playing their parts in the story.

This author creates atmosphere and draws emotion to make you weep. This is my favourite kind of read, the combination of sf and human issues, made all the more complex by timespans that exceed a man's lifetime. He paints the most wonderful pictures.

Wow its been a few years since I've logged in, and I've got quite a few books to addbut later As I recall, Centuries was brilliant! Some of the best scifi I've ever read Very prescient poetic ingenious beautifully written.

Probably my favourite sci-fi. That's a huge statement as I collect the SF Masterworks. I'm surprised this isn't in it. I think I've read it four times so far. It's one I can come back to again and again if I have nothing else to read. And it still keeps me interested.

This book is incredible. If Time Traveler's Wife brings sci-fi to the popular audience, this book brings the popular audience to sci-fi.

Great book! Truly an awesome and chilling concept by master tale-spinner A. A. A.!
