Summary

The waters rose, submerging New York City. But the residents adapted, and it remained the bustling, vibrant metropolis it had always been. Though changed forever. Every street became a canal. Every skyscraper an island. Through the eyes of the varied inhabitants of one building, Kim Stanley Robinson shows us how one of our great cities will change with the rising tides. And how we, too, will change.

Amazing book with great characters

Really loved the book the fact that they were multiple performers according to who the story was focusing on at the time. Sustainability and the environment have been the focus of my life for almost a decade now. And I never thought I would read a book this interesting dealing with the subject matter. Only real complaint is a wish that all the performers read the lines of their characters even in the chapters that focused on other characters. Because some of the narrators weren't as good as others and doing the accents and mannerisms of the other characters. But that's not a big deal. Anyway highly recommend it.
