Red Moon by Kim Stanley Robinson digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Red Moon is a magnificent novel of space exploration and political revolution from New York Times bestselling author Kim Stanley Robinson.

It is thirty years from now, and we have colonized the moon.

American Fred Fredericks is making his first trip, his purpose to install a communications system for China's Lunar Science Foundation. But hours after his arrival he witnesses a murder and is forced into hiding.

It is also the first visit for celebrity travel reporter Ta Shu. He has contacts and influence, but he too will find that the moon can be a perilous place for any traveler.

Finally, there is Chan Qi. She is the daughter of the Minister of Finance, and without doubt a person of interest to those in power. She is on the moon for reasons of her own, but when she attempts to return to China, in secret, the events that unfold will change everything -- on the moon, and on Earth.

Expressionless Face“I wanted to like this book so bad. It may be my fault that I had an expectation of what was going to come out of this. It quickly moves away from “mysterious murder on the moon” plot to “political chaos” plot without wrapping the two together coherently. Written from a few different points of view and it felt like I was reading 4 different books without knowing where they existed in each others time and space. It’s intellectually stimulating for sure and can make you wonder with all the parallels to the current landscape. OH AND WHAT HAPPENED TO THE ANALYST?”
Multi-layered charactersDescriptive writingUnpredictableUnsatisfying endingUnsatisfying plot
“What begins as a murder mystery set in China's enormous Moon colony turns into reflections on the global crisis in political representation, the futility of Machiavellian palace intrigue, the potential for cryptography to realize direct democracy at global scales, and the revolutionary transformation of world capitalism into ... something else, not quite defined. I thought the ending was too conveniently plotted, and for some reason did not quite enjoy the way in which it came together, which is the reason for my lower-than-expected rating. But KSR vividly brings the ideas to life--I would have liked two hundred more pages of that.”
