In spite of a glowing, enthusiastic recommendation from a good friend with very similar tastes, I had to bail on this one. It started off slow and then...

LISTS

and not just ANY lists - lists of authors and scientists and composers, both well-known and obscure. Was there a point to these lists? Doubtful, except to show the author's pretentiousness ("oh, look, I name-dropped PROUST! I must be SOOOO intellectual"). Maybe it's because I'd recently finished The Hyperion Cantos, but I'm very weary of books with long lists that prove nothing except the author's research skills.

This is the line that finally did it for me:

There is an escarpment named Pourquoi Pas.

I have no idea what that means. It's the final line in a chapter comprised solely of geographical names based on the afore-mentioned authors, scientists and composers. I'm a pretty smart guy, but I guess I'm not smart enough to read this book. And it seems that the author wants to PROVE that I'm not smart enough, but I'm not going to stick around to give him that chance.

Perhaps this book really is as good as everyone says it is. Maybe the LIST issue is not that big of a problem when you're reading the book with your own eyeballs and can quickly skim over them, but as an audiobook listener, that's not as easy to do.

So I'll have to add this to the gave-up-on shelf ( )

The scenarios for the future solar system were interesting. That part gets 5 stars. The changes to humanity and social structure was new and complex. I was less interested than that but it was well done. The main characters, one mercurial from the planet Mercury and one saturnine from Saturn and their relationship took a little too much of the stage but that is probably what helped the book get a Nebula award nomination.

Finally, the story revolves around a couple of central mysteries that are solved about 20 pages before the book finishes. My interest lagged after the mysteries were solved.

Overall, a good book. ( )

I recommend Kim Stanley Robinson if you like your science fiction hard and you love reading about technology. I love reading him because his books (and this one is no different) is chock-full of ideas of what a Earth and colonization of our solar system might look like a few hundred years from now. Don't read it for characters to love--he always manages to create some characters that you feel ambivalent about. I can't really say I connected with the hero. But the ideas!? Yes. The ideas. ( )

WAY TOO LONG. holy crap - I only made it half-way through this monstrosity, moving at a glacial pace, before I just gave up, skimmed the last few chapters, confirmed basically what happened and called it a day. GEEZE! ( )

I liked this book. The idea of living on asteroids is cool. Some reviews I read talked about the amazing vision of the book, but I didn't really see it. It seemed like normal humans to me. ( )

In his vibrant, often moving new novel, "2312," Robinson's extrapolation is hard-wired to a truly affecting personal love story.
 
Kim Stanley Robinson's 17th novel is complex and sometimes bewildering, 500 pages crammed full of strange but decent characters whose actions play out against a vastly constructed utopian background.
afegit per karenb | editaThe Guardian, M John Harrison (Jun 14, 2012)
 
... [Robinson's] boldest trip into all of the marvelous SF genres—ethnography, future shock, screed against capitalism, road to earth—and all of the ways to thrill and be thrilled. It's a future history that's so secure and comprehensive that it reads as an account of the past—a trick of craft that belongs almost exclusively to the supreme SF task force of Le Guin and Margaret Atwood.
afegit per karenb | editaSlate, Choire Sicha (Jun 1, 2012)
 
(Starred review) In a spectacularly depicted future of interplanetary colonization, humanity has spread across the entire solar system, from miniature biomes in hollowed-out asteroids to a moving city racing the fatal rays of the sun on Mercury.

A small, clever novel obscured rather than enlightened by philosophy, synthesis, analysis and travelogue.
