Orbital elevators have always been an interesting topic to me. It's something about having a train, but one that takes you to the stars. This Hugo and Nebula award winning story has been theorized about for many years. The story itself is more a book about an engineering project than science fiction, which drifted to religion at times. I appreciated the concept more than the presentation.
