New York Times bestselling author Kim Stanley Robinson returns with a bold and brilliant vision of New York City in the next century.

As the sea levels rose, every street became a canal. Every skyscraper an island. For the residents of one apartment building in Madison Square, however, New York in the year 2140 is far from a drowned city.

There is the market trader, who finds opportunities where others find trouble. There is the detective, whose work will never disappear -- along with the lawyers, of course.

There is the internet star, beloved by millions for her airship adventures, and the building's manager, quietly respected for his attention to detail. Then there are two boys who don't live there, but have no other home -- and who are more important to its future than anyone might imagine.

Lastly there are the coders, temporary residents on the roof, whose disappearance triggers a sequence of events that threatens the existence of all -- and even the long-hidden foundations on which the city rests.

    Totally engaging. The setting in the year 2140 is so pertinent to today. Highly recommended.

    By Just some gamer "jsg"
    The book says that it is 624 pages on its description, but it's actually 1,174 pages. Besides that it's a pretty good book. I would recommend it, but probably wont read it again.
  • Snooze

    By MarkWhiteLotus
    Terrible book. Completely un-engaging characters and phony dialogue. Another snoozer.
