Did I Notice Your Book Blogfest?

Blogfest sponsored by Ciara Knight and Alex Cavanaugh.
I don't know if this book will qualify, but this is the book that I'm currently reading. I've been really enjoying it so far. My choice is '2312' by Kim S. Robinson. '2312' is a unique love story for the hardcore scifi fan. It's set in a time when humanity has escaped the earth and terraformed the surrounding planets within the solar system. "They would leave the system altogether, but physics forbids." A full review can be seen in the Guardian. It's brilliant...seriously brilliant.

  5. Epic cover! A lot to convey, and they did it extremely well. Makes me feel small in the way good sic-fi stories do. :-)

  8. There have been loads of fantasy novels on the blogs today but not too many sci-fi so this was a great choice!

  17. I first read Robinson back in the 80s (Memory of Whiteness and Icehenge), and I started reading his Mars trilogy, but I don't think I ever completed it.

    The new book sounds interesting. Gotta love the comparison to stand on Zanzibar for a great recommendation.
