Review quote

Robinson is one of the world's finest working novelists, in any genre. New York 2140 is a towering novel about a genuinely grave threat to civilisation -- GUARDIAN Robinson seamlessly binds together characters and narrative strands . . . An immensely enjoyable reading experience * SciFiNow * Robinson's writing is so evocative that you can imagine that any one of his paragraphs could feature in the film of the book . . . a thoughtful, innovative page turner -- STARBURST Even at 600-plus pages, there's a leanness to the prose that keeps the plot moving forwards . . . Robinson handles setpieces with aplomb -- SFX It's near impossible to capture the vibrance of the entire city in the span of one single novel, yet Kim Stanley Robinson manages to do just that and more -- NEWSWEEK Like all great sci-fi, New York 2140 is as much inward-looking as it is forward- . . . Robinson's work has a strong, intelligent social conscience -- GQ Starkly beautiful and fundamentally optimistic -- THE CONVERSATION Only sci-fi can drown Manhattan and make you want to live there -- BLOOMBERG BUSINESS WEEK This may well be Robinson's masterpiece and is surely the most important piece of sf in years -- MORNING STAR There have been more than a few environmental catastrophe tales set in
a future New York, but possibly none of them have been this interesting -- LOCUS One of the most exciting books in climate change fiction yet written... Both immensely readable and timely -- LITHUB Utterly immersive and unexpectedly hopeful -- RT BOOK REVIEWS
