Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

2312. Le système solaire a été colonisé après que la Terre a été ravagée par les effets de la pollution. L'humanité peut compter sur les qubes, ces ordinateurs quantiques miniaturisés et parfois greffés directement au cerveau, pour l'épauler dans ses efforts de survie.

Sur Mercure, dans la cité mobile Terminateur, Swan est accablée par le décès soudain de sa grande-belle-mère Alex, un personnage très influent qui nourrissait pour l'humanité des projets soigneusement tenus secrets de tous les réseaux qubiques. Accompagnée de Wahram, un associé d'Alex, et de Genette, une inspectrice de la Police Interplanétaire, Swan part sur Io dans l'espoir d'élucider les questions qui entourent la mort suspecte de son aïeule. Elle qui faisait profession d'imaginer des mondes se retrouve bientôt au coeur d'une vaste conspiration visant à les détruire.

Kim Stanley Robinson met son imagination sans limites au service de la description d'un univers d'une vraisemblance parfaite. Avec «2312», couronné du Nebula du meilleur roman, l'auteur de la «Trilogie martienne» livre son grand oeuvre.

"A brilliant, plausible account of how humans might colonize planets, moons and asteroids, 2312 is also about the future of art and family." "NPR Books""

"A feast for the imagination and intellect - shockingly clever" "Sun (UK)""

"An sf masterpiece." ""Library Journal"""

"Beautifully written and with strong mental imagery" "SciFi Now""

"In his vibrant, often moving new novel, "2312," Robinson's extrapolation is hard-wired to a truly affecting personal love story. [...] Perhaps Robinson's finest novel, "2312" is a treasured gift to fans of passionate storytelling; readers will be with Swan and Wahram in the tunnel long after reaching the last page." "LA Times""

"Inherently epic stuff... expect interplanetary strife, conspiracies, more big ideas than most SF authors pack into a trilogy... [yet] this is ultimately in so many respects a book about Earth... a wise and wondrous novel" "SFX""

"Intellectually engaged and intensely humane in a way SF rarely is, exuberantly speculative in a way only the best SF can be, this is the work of a writer at or approaching the top of his game." "Iain M. Banks""

"Robinson's extraordinary completeness of vision results in a magnificently realized, meticulously detailed future in which social and biological changes keep pace with technological developments." "Publishers Weekly""

"This is a grand tour of an intensely imagined interplanetary future of modified human beings, terraformed planets, experiments in economics and sociology and hundreds of other delights. All of it is in Robinson's eloquent, enthusiastic and inimitable prose" "Morning Star (UK)""

"2312 is a monumental tour-de-force that re-imagines the solar system in ways no one has envisioned before. Whether comparing the compositions of Beethoven to those of skylarks and warblers, or describing a life-threatening sunrise on Mercury, Robinson fills 2312 with joy and exuberance, danger and fear, and the steadily mounting suspense of a mystery that spans the planets. This is the finest novel yet from the author who gave us the Mars Trilogy and GALILEO'S DREAM. An amazing accomplishment." "Robert Crais""
