An immensely enjoyable reading experienceRobinson'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 turnerAny new novel by the great Kim Stanley Robinson is always an event and Red Moon doesn't disappointEven at 600-plus pages, there's a leanness to the prose that keeps the plot moving forwards . . .
