    Would you say it’s a good book? I’m always down for a riveting read :)

      It was kind of a difficult read for me - things just hit a little too close to home for me, and the resolution was too perfect. I’d still recommend it though - at the end of the day it’s still Kim Stanley Robinson, and he is an absolute master of hard social-scifi.

      Kim Stanley Robinson is likely one of the best sci fi authors alive. You generally can’t go wrong with his stuff.

      I would say it is an okay book. It’s a little too optimistic on the human side which his books all tend to be. It’s worth a read though of only to give some idea of possibilities.

        “optimistic” just above was talking about how terrorists were shooting planes out of the sky killing people

          Everyone has a different definition of optimism. 🙂

          More I meant the final outcome. I don’t think the eco terrorism would be as effective or as coordinated. ELF certainly did not end up changing much in a positive way.
