Summary

For many billions of years, humans - having conquered the curse of aging - spread throughout the entire Milky Way. They are able to live all their dreams, but to their great disappointment, no other intelligent species has ever been encountered. Now, humanity itself is on the brink of extinction because the universe is dying a protracted yet inevitable death. 

They have only one hope: The 'Rescue Project' was designed to feed the black hole in the center of the galaxy until it becomes a quasar, delivering much-needed energy to humankind during its last breaths. But then something happens that no one ever expected - and humanity is forced to look at itself and its existence in an entirely new way.

A very interesting concept

I've often wondered what it would be like to witness the end of the universe and what creatures such as humans would do to prolong the have habitability of the Universe. This book didn't quite touch on that as much as I hoped but it was a good story nonetheless. I also thought it was a bit anthropocentric for a story encompassing the whole universe.

deserves to be more well known

decent characters, needed more maybe, good story.... hard sci fi? hmmm more like medium.
narrator was good but pronounced "giga" like doc brown from back to the future.
