The Years of Rice and Salt by Kim Stanley Robinson
The Years of Rice and Salt

Lanky9, October 17, 2009

If you haven't picked up a work of sci-fi or fantasy in a while (or ever), this absorbing read will show you what you've missed out on. Compelling from the first page, aan alternative future history where the Black Death wiped out 90% of Europe and killed off Christianity, leaving Muslim and Chinese as the dominant cultures. Philosophical, thoughtful, and entertaining.
