Kim Stanley Robinson
2312 Cover



I'm not really a big fan of Kim Stanley Robinson, but I do recognize that his books are really well written. The prose is usually outstanding and the amount of research and thought that goes into his books is extraordinary. 2312 is no exception. I was continuously amazed at what he was writing about and how he was writing it. However, I thought this book was short on plot and character development. It took a long time to get around to advancing the plot, and I didn't think it was all that interesting. The characters were sort of interesting, but not very likeable. I thought the real point of this book was a love letter to the solar system and positive thoughts on its colonization if we put our minds to it.
