Forty Signs of Rain

A review of this — 7 years ago

… by Kim Stanley Robinson

Posted from All Consuming

He’s one of my favorite authors, but this was not among his best work. It was interesting, but up until the last few chapters, it was simply boring. The characters were interesting enough for me to care what happens to them, so I may end up finishing the trilogy eventually. But the second book will have to pick up the pace.

Books about lobbyists and scientific beureaucrats aren’t always the most exciting stories in the world.


Totally boring

Ever read something waiting for something to happen. Nothing ever did. I read this book on the recommendation of a friend who said he is the best science fiction writer writing about climate change scenarios today. This one had basically nothing about climate change until the last few chapters. All character development of people i don’t give a crap about. Not worth the time.
