    Although the Terranauts' goal is to learn what challenges humanity will face when colonizing other planets, this sardonic novel is primarily a study of human nature and all its foibles.

The Terranauts by T.C. Boyle is a book about a group of scientists living in the early nineties who are part of a highly publicized research experiment that basically consists of them living inside of a closed ecosystem for a full year.

The Terranauts book The purpose of the experiment is to take the first step toward finding out whether humans can survive in /5. The book examines the three different people’s commitment to this very difficult assignment.

At no time are the Terranauts permitted to “break closure” unless it is a matter of life and death and, perhaps, not even then. All three of the main characters are very committed to the experiment but this means different things to each of them/5().

These are the Terranauts. The book closely follows three people involved in the experiment, two on the inside and one on the outside. The book examines the three different people’s commitment to this very difficult assignment.

At no time are the Terranauts permitted to “break closure” unless it is a matter of life and death and, perhaps /5(). The book flap promises "an epic story of science, society, sex, and survival," and though one expects a bit of hyperbole from a publisher's marketing department, I couldn't help but wonder if the person writing that had read The Terranauts book a little of the novel, as The Terranauts is not in any way "epic." In fact, it's the opposite; it's a book of very small, closely observed moments.

Seriously, THE TERRANAUTS is like a supersonic rollercoaster of a book ups and downs, switches of allegiance, lapses of seriousness and great drama at every turn, while staying stuck like prairie dogs inside little worlds sealed off from the real one in order to understand just how we can save ourselves, if that is even possible.

The Terranauts, his 26th book, fictionalizes a notable 90s Arizona experiment. Eight scientists, coined the Terranauts, lived under glass in E2, a model of a possible off-Earth colony. Inspired by real-life events, The Terranauts is a darkly comic, acutely insightful story of human behaviour, animal instincts, idealism and ambition.

Placing utopian visions and individual motives under the microscope, this is T. Boyle at his acerbic, pitch-perfect best. The eight Terranauts in Boyle’s Ecosphere deal with practical problems: an electrical outage, decreasing oxygen levels, poor crop yields.

But the real drama is interpersonal. The acclaimed author of The Underground Railroad () follows up with a leaner, meaner saga of Deep South captivity set in the midth century and fraught with horrors more chilling for being based on true-life atrocities.
