2312 Kim Stanley Robinson

So I read the book 2313 by Kim Stanley Robinson and found it to be interesting. I would like to know has anyone else read this book as well?

Re: 2312 Kim Stanley Robinson

Read it and loved every bit of it. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but I really enjoyed the world building (the different colonies, the ships, etc.) as well as the development of the human race. Much better than Galileo's Dreams and up there with Robinson's best works, including Red Mars and The Years of Rice and Salt.

Haven't read it.

Liked most of his stuff up to The Years Of Rice And Salt which was so bad it put me off...

Loved redmars, amazed that there is no effort to make it into a television series.
