    The year is 2312. Scientific and technological advances have opened gateways to an extraordinary future. Earth is no longer humanity's only home; new habitats have been created throughout the solar system on moons, planets, and in between. But in this year, 2312, a sequence of events will force humanity to confront its past, its present, and its future. The first event takes place on Mercury, on the city of Terminator, itself a miracle of engineering on an unprecedented scale. It is an unexpected death, but one that might have been foreseen....

    What disappointed you about 2312?

    The story intrigued me. I love far future, hard science stories. In fact, I will be buying this book for my ereader. However, I couldn't make it past 30 min of this audiobook.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Kim Stanley Robinson? Why or why not?

    Yes, I love far future and hard science, scifi.


    What didn’t you like about Sarah Zimmerman’s performance?

    I'm sure Sarah Zimmerman is a wonderful person but I can't listen to her narrate. Her delivery is monotone and there is something about the cadence of her speech that makes it difficult to tell when one person stops speaking and another starts. I couldn't get into the story because I was too distracted by her narration. Sorry but that's my opinion.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment with the narration. I couldn't listen to more than 30 mins.
