The Boat of a Million Years Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Boat of a Million Years

The Boat of a Million Years is about immortality, and the subject is masterfully handled. Not much happens in the book - although it is not, for the most part, short stories, it does have the feeling of a collection of short stories - but the characters are well-developed, and the events of each immortal's life are described in fascinating depth.   Also has one of the best songs about science advancement that I've ever read.
