New York 2140

Kim Stanley Robinson

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Science fiction


'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

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.

'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

'Only sci-fi can drown Manhattan and make you want to live there' Bloomberg Business Week

Praise for New York 2140

  • Polymathic, visionary brilliance

  • Aurora is a magnificent piece of writing, certainly Robinson's best novel since his mighty Mars trilogy, perhaps his best ever

  • Kim Stanley Robinson is one of science fiction's greats . . . readers will be astonished by the depth, breadth and power of Robinson's invention

  • Robinson blends mystery and suspense with lyrical evocation of a complex future

  • Classified as science fiction, this visually story set in the near future is entirely believable which makes it all the more compelling, and with hacking, kidnapping, sabotage, treasure and drama both in the air and on the water, it's an epic fantasy that could be our reality. - Townsville Bulletin, Weekend Post

  • If you want to know what New York may well look like in 100 years, Robinson's latest novel, New York 2140, is the book to turn to. It's a work of far-ranging intellectual interest; it's a masterly book not just about climate change but economics and geography too. - Canberra Times, The Saturday Age, Sydney Morning Herald,

  • It's a big, engaging read, and ultimately optimistic. - Northern Star, Queensland Times, Daily Mercury, Fraser Coast Chronicles, Gladstone Observer, Toowoomba Chronicle, Morning Bulletin, News Mail

  • 2140's vision is so convincing as a cautionary tale and promise of hope, one can only feel galvanised to prevent the worst and fight for the best - New Scient
