Publisher's Summary

New York 2140: Booktrack Edition* adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!

As the sea levels rose, every street became a canal. Every skyscraper an island. For the residents of one apartment building in Madison Square, however, New York in the year 2140 is far from a drowned city. 

There is the market trader, who finds opportunities where others find trouble. There is the detective, whose work will never disappear - along with the lawyers, of course. 

There is the internet star, beloved by millions for her airship adventures, and the building's manager, quietly respected for his attention to detail. Then there are two boys who don't live there, but have no other home - and who are more important to its future than anyone might imagine. 

Lastly there are the coders, temporary residents on the roof, whose disappearance triggers a sequence of events that threatens the existence of all - and even the long-hidden foundations on which the city rests. 

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Eutopian and way short depth

It was a very Eutopian story. Terrible tragedy befalls the planet but we’re ok everyone will just get along. Some brief mentions of peripheral hardships that could happen but again no big impact. Character evolution and linkage was really welded together, and the readers sounded like they whispering by speaking so softly, not much emotion behind it. Not recommend.

Great idea but.....

It’s a shame, I love Kim Stanley Robinson’s work but this is I’m afraid dire! The story itself is slow and plodding and I didn’t warm to any of the characters. Then there is all the narrators who’s voices I felt weren’t distinctive enough and strangely confused the story. The worst bit for me though is the unrelenting elevator music that plays over the top of the narrators voices. It’s a constant distraction that I don’t understand the need for. It may well just be me and others love it but I’ll be steering clear of “Bootrack” editions in the future.

Awful

This was the worst read ever! I have been listening to books for ages and I would not recommend this.
Firstly the use of multiple readers against a music backdrop was annoying . If I had wanted a play I would have downloaded one!
The main issue was the story itself. Oh God where do I start? It’s was a self absorbed stream of consciousness with little regard to creating an engaging story. Not my cup of tea - but hey- you might love it-
