I've just finished a book that I really enjoyed and would like to recommend to the forum book club.

Kim Stanley Robinson's New York 2140

It's a hard science fiction novel based on finance and environmental science, with a fair dob of politics included. The characters are all enjoyable and relatable and the scenes describing a world set 122 years in the future fundamentally altered by climate change, are intriguing (I want to see this world!). Basically the book is an optimistic story set in a dystopian world, but really the book is a love letter to New York - past, present and future.

This is only the second KSR book I've read, the first being 2312. The books seems to be set in the same meta-universe as 2312 and the Mars trilogy, so if you enjoyed them you might enjoy this.
