Publisher's Summary

From the author of the award-winning Mars trilogy comes a vision of a radically different alternative future, where every day is a fight to survive.

North America, 2047. For the small Pacific Coast community of San Onofre, life in the aftermath of a devastating nuclear attack is a matter of survival, a day-to-day struggle to stay alive. But young Hank Fletcher dreams of the world that might have been, that might yet be - and dreams of playing a crucial role in America's rebirth.

Kim Stanley Robinson's first novel, The Wild Shore, is an epic tale that will appeal to adults and young adults alike.

    "Extremely boring..."

    I kept waiting for the story line to pick up the pace, but it never did. The plot is definitely interesting, but the characters and story telling is dry.

    "Needs 6 stars"

    This book redefines great sci-fi, it is a great story and good literature. It has lots of ringing truths and it punches through similar books with a rich inner life expressed in terms of the New World lost in the ruins of the old.

    "Yay"

    I really love it when I discover an audio book that can hold my interest. It's always a combination of a good story, delightful prose that inspire me to pause, replay, and dwell on the insight of the author, and a really good narrator that 1.) does not annoy me, 2.) does not bore me, and 3.) has developed good and distinctive voices for the characters
    This book has all of those. I'm moving on to book 2. Yay!!!
