Re: 2013 Hugo Nominees

I loved 2312 from cover to cover. I'm sure it helps that I love the hard science-fiction aspect of it, but it also had a gorgeous story surrounding a fascinating and mysterious character. I loved the "globetrotting" around the solar system and the miniscule connections to Robinson's Mars trilogy (although I don't think I spot any references to Galileo's Dreams which has a couple of connections to the trilogy as well). I think it also helped that I often listened to the Blade Runner score while reading the novel which I found to be a beautiful backdrop to Robinson's little universe.
