The first novel in the The Capital Code trilogy. "There is much that is brilliant in Forty Signs of Rain, and even more that is critically important, but after all the compelling characters and complex ideas that Robinson introduces, some readers might be a little surprised to find that what began as undoubtedly the best novel about the NSF ends as the year's most elaborat lesson plan [concerning the affects of global warming]." - Gary K. Wolfe, Locus, January 2004. Very nice jacket illustration mirrored by the French jacket perspective. Award History: 2005 Locus Poll Award Nominee (lost to The Confusion by Neal Stephenson); 2004 British SF Award Nominee for Best Novel (lost to River of Gods by McDonald); Locus 2004 Recommended Reading List: Science Fiction Novels.
