    By the time Phil Chase is elected president, the world's climate is far on its way to irreversible change. Food scarcity, housing shortages, diminishing medical care, and vanishing species are just some of the consequences. The erratic winter the Washington, D.C., area is experiencing is another grim reminder of a global weather pattern gone haywire: bone-chilling cold one day, balmy weather the next. BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction by author Kim Stanley Robinson.

    "Totally disappointed"
    Overall

    I bought the series all at once and am very disappointed. Slowly developed story line, dull unexciting narration, and only occasionally (Very occasionally) some dark, cerebral humor.

    Save your money and credits.

    Best-selling, award-winning, author Kim Stanley Robinson continues his groundbreaking trilogy of eco-thrillers - and propels us deeper into the awesome whirlwind of climatic change. Set in our nation's capital, here is a chillingly realistic tale of people caught in the collision of science, technology, and the consequences of global warming - which could trigger another phenomenon: abrupt climate change, resulting in temperatures. BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction by author Kim Stanley Robinson.

    "Further disappointment"
    Overall

    I bought the entire series at one time and now regret it. The plodding story line and the dull narration continues from the first book in this series.

    The best-selling author of the classic Mars trilogy and The Years of Rice and Salt returns with a riveting new trilogy of cutting-edge science, international politics, and the real-life ramifications of global warming as they are played out in our nation's capital - and in the daily lives of those at the center of the action. Hauntingly realistic, here is a novel of the near future that is inspired by scientific facts already making headlines. BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction by author Kim Stanley Robinson.

    steve says: "Its all"
    "Very disappointing"
    Overall

    The story line has little relationship to Sci-fi or fantasy. The writting style is entirely too verbose, with significant time spent in descriptive detail that has very little bearing on the story line. The real story is the middle age crisis that the main character is enduring, not global warming.
    Narration is dry and plodding. The narrator rarely displays the real feeling that the scene should invoke.
    I don't recommend that anyone spend their money or credits on this book
