Publisher's Summary

Multiple Nebula and Hugo Award-winner Greg Bear returns to the Earth of his acclaimed novel Eon, a world devastated by nuclear war. The crew of the asteroid-starship Thistledown has thwarted an attack by the Jarts by severing their link to the Way, an endless corridor that spans universes. The asteroid settled into orbit around Earth and the tunnel snaked away, forming a contained universe of its own.
Forty years later, on Gaia, Rhita Vaskayza recklessly pursues her legacy, seeking an Earth once again threatened by forces from within and without. For physicist Konrad Korzenowski, murdered for creating The Way, and resurrected, is compelled by a faction determined to see it opened once more. And humankind will discover just how entirely they have underestimated their ancient adversaries.

Good but not up to the standard Eon set

I enjoyed this book but at the same time, as it follows Eon, could have stopped there and been fine. I don't think anyone out there would be disappointed by it if they like sci-fi but personally found it lacking that intangible thing that made Eon so much better.

Excellent sequel with closure to a great story.

What made the experience of listening to Eternity the most enjoyable?

The culture of the "Hexamon" was fascinating.

What other book might you compare Eternity to and why?

The prequel was good.

What about Stefan Rudnicki’s performance did you like?

He does an outstanding Russian accent and can narrate between different characters voices very well.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was satisfied by the ending.

very enjoyable

Great story, good to hear the range of voices. Makes me want to go back to listen to Eon (which I read) to see if they match.
