    MOBI Kim Stanley Robinson ã ã Antarctica eBook Ö antarctica epub, Antarctica EpubKim Stanley Robinson's Antarctica is the rare sort of book that can make the walls dissolve around you while reading it so that you are no longer surrounded by the comfortable environs of your living room or bedroom but rather are completely immersed in the world described by the novelist in this case the knee weakening heartache beauty of the frozen southern continent I was not surprised to find when reading the acknowledgments at the end that Robinson has actually visited Antarctica himself but in some respects it wouldn't matter if he hadn't His descriptions were vivid and rang true regardless of how true and accurate they were Finding out that they are indeed from his personal experience just adds that much depthRobinson is known for being a sci fi author but this is not a book I would consider to be science fiction It is set in the near future but it took me a few chapters before I even realized

    MOBI Kim Stanley Robinson ã ã Antarctica eBook Ö antarctica epub, Antarctica EpubKim Stanley Robinson writes the driest prose and the stockiest of stock characters but I thoroughly enjoy his work I think that perhaps the stock nature of his characters allows them to function as every men that the readers can then project themselves into Robinson is brilliant at fleshing out reasonable arguments for different view points In this case I really like the discussion about the Antarctic Treaty I also typically don't like nonfiction explorer books which is why I went with this over a nonfiction book for the GRI 7 contintent challenge I think that perhaps my prob
