Publisher's Summary

The waters rose, submerging New York City. But the residents adapted, and it remained the bustling, vibrant metropolis it had always been. Though changed forever. Every street became a canal. Every skyscraper an island. Through the eyes of the varied inhabitants of one building, Kim Stanley Robinson shows us how one of our great cities will change with the rising tides. And how we, too, will change.

    "Amazing book with great characters "

    Really loved the book the fact that they were multiple performers according to who the story was focusing on at the time. Sustainability and the environment have been the focus of my life for almost a decade now. And I never thought I would read a book this interesting dealing with the subject matter. Only real complaint is a wish that all the performers read the lines of their characters even in the chapters that focused on other characters. Because some of the narrators weren't as good as others and doing the accents and mannerisms of the other characters. But that's not a big deal. Anyway highly recommend it.

    "Thoroughly recommended if you like you're speculative fiction"

    That KSR sure knows how to write a vivid book. Hats off to the brilliant voice cast too.

    "Brilliant setting, story not so much."

    great idea for a setting, drowned New York, but I didn't think the story ever accumulated to much or really got resolved. it's probably how it's meant to be, but it didn't sit right with me. rather than all the story lines coming together, they head that way but then the book ends.

    "Terrible"

    Worst book I have ever listened to. Full of random in depth finance references. Minor stories mixed in with the references. And a very disappointing ending. And I suffered it for 22 hours desperately hoping it would improve. It didn't 😤

    "great idea let down by too much waffling "

    a great idea for a book one of those stories that keeps you listening even though you know it's not actually going anywhere left me feeling that I had been very disappointed but how wonderful would it be if the main idea of the plot actually could work in real life
