New York 2140


It is 2140.

The waters rose, submerging New York City.

But the residents adapted and it remained the bustling, vibrant metropolis it had always been. Though changed forever.

Every street became a canal. Every skyscraper an island.

Through the eyes of the varied inhabitants of one building, Kim Stanley Robinson shows us how one of our great cities will change with the rising tides.

And how we too will change.

    About a third of the way though and getting so bored I had to stop and make a note about it. There's no story, just a bunch of people wandering around. The few plot hooks are flimsy and small. And som...

    I loved how literary critic at the Washington Post Ms. Everdeen Mason put in her review column the other day online at the Post website: ''The book is a strange hybrid. It has the tenacious, encyclope...

    This is a compelling idea ruined by flabby writing and awful dialogue. I got angrier and angrier at the waste of my time as I read this. The level of my anger is totally unwarranted. All I can tell yo...
