2312 book review

So you may recall me saying a few weeks back that I would be cutting back my blogging time to do some reading. I just finished Kim Stanley Robinson's '2312', the sci-fi author who wrote the Mars trilogy (Red Mars, Green Mars and Blue Mars). It was a great book.

It was like the fantasy I've always dreamed of for our civilization - the complete (practical) colonization of our solar system. The story includes elements of genetic engineering, politics and espionage, amazing technology and stories of the human (in all of its forms) condition. It also addresses the impact of climate change on Earth.

All in all, a great read and if you're a KSR fan, you'll want to add this one to your Kindle app.

Next - to re-read the Mars trilogy.....
