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.

Reviews for New York 2140

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
