The Freeze-Frame Revolution - Peter Watts

Book: I'm going to tell you about some poor SOBs on a spaceship, falling through space for thousands of millennia, being awake only some days every thousand years, eating wormholes into the universe...

 

Me: Oh, in that Valente-book, wormholes looked just like really big Great Pandas. 

 

Book: Erm, okay. Anyway, our protagonist are more than sixty million years from home, facing the occasional demon coming through the gates. They try to stage a revolution to fight an enemy that never sleeps, that sees everything, hears everything...

 

Me: Really, really huge fluffy Pandas.

 

Book: They have to keep their plans secret, but the ship offers few hiding places, like artificial forests with...

 

Me: ...Pandas?

 

Book: ...trees which look like someone build them "from the blood vessels of slaughtered giants: flushed out the blood and replaced it with tar."

 

Me:bored panda

 

This is going really well :)
