Stapledon's epic ages of man tour-de-force. This is by no means a detailed character study, but a study of a theme - the evolution of humanity, and its spread. You are not quite sure how one man could get his head around this at the time, but he managed, in a masterful way. Very influential and exciting, this book.

Olaf Stapledon takes us on a journey through billions of years, tracing an evolutionary path of humanity from human, to more than human. This is not an uneventful journey, and the path he traces for us is not an easy one. As we witness humanity change in this novel, we start to wonder what it is that makes us human, and what humanity should be like.
