Critics Review

  • Robinson is one of the world’s finest working novelists, in any genre. New York 2140 is a towering novel about a genuinely grave threat to civilisation

    GUARDIAN
  • Robinson seamlessly binds together characters and narrative strands . . . An immensely enjoyable reading experience

    SciFiNow
  • Robinson’s writing is so evocative that you can imagine that any one of his paragraphs could feature in the film of the book . . . a thoughtful, innovative page turner

    STARBURST
  • Even at 600-plus pages, there’s a leanness to the prose that keeps the plot moving forwards . . . Robinson handles setpieces with aplomb

    SFX
  • It’s near impossible to capture the vibrance of the entire city in the span of one single novel, yet Kim Stanley Robinson manages to do just that and more

    NEWSWEEK
  • Like all great sci-fi, New York 2140 is as much inward-looking as it is forward- . . . Robinson’s work has a strong, intelligent social conscience
