Winner of the Nebula Award for Best SF Novel of the Year
The year is 2312. Scientific and technological advances have opened gateways to an extraordinary future. Earth is no longer humanity's only home; new habitats have been created throughout the solar system on moons, planets, and in between. But in this year, 2312, a sequence of events will force humanity to confront its past, its present, and its future.

The first event takes place on Mercury, on the city of Terminator, itself a miracle of engineering on an unprecedented scale. It is an unexpected death, but one that might have been foreseen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great if you like to imagine Loved the science and imagery that went into making this. Also the complexity in writing similar character timelines that worked in tandem with each other. Interesting social evolutionary concept pages Not a lot of plot in the beginning, pretty slow. Picks up at certain places.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope There's some cool technological ideas (Mercury settlement and asteroid travel) but very little plot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Waste of time This book starts out slow and maintains this velocity until the bitter end. No plot no interesting characters just page after page of different descriptions of various terraforming environments. I can't believe it was nominated for so many SF awards. The "list" and "extract" chapters are just plain weird.
