Clementa takes place on a future Planet Earth that’s unlike any other in speculative fiction.

Three hundred years from now, most machines have been broken up for scrap, and the rest are museum pieces. Yet no apocalypse—no disease epidemic, asteroid collision, or nuclear conflagration—has occurred.

Agriculture has been abandoned. People live by omnifostering, an advanced ki

Fantasy is not my genre of first choice, and post-apocalyptic reads usually leave me dissatisfied. Clementa was very different. Martin has written an extremely artisic book. While extremely wordy in parts, it held my interest and pushed me to finish it. As a very visually oriented individual, this conjured enjoyable yet complicated images of a world more interesting than most. I would like to see Martin let his characters actions be revealed without excessive rhetoric, there is an interesting st ...more

I don't give up on books easily but several times whilst I was reading this I was close to putting it down and forgetting about it. It's fair to say this isn't a genre I make a particular point of reading but do enjoy dipping in to occasionally.

Couldn't get into this book, probably because I like books that have more dialogue. I didn't finish it, or even get to the middle, so I'm not going to rate it. I'd feel comfortable trying it again.
This book is very artistic and high concept. If you're not ready to read something like that, I suggest picking something else up. However, I'd slip this on the to-read for a future read. You never know when you might yearn for the obscure.

This epic story is intersting at best. I've recently in the last year or so have really gotten into these kind-of stories.

This is a story I would like to read again sometime. It's rich in detail. Also, there are some strong characters I liked very much.

The only reason I gave it three stars is because it took me a few chapters to get into it. But I wasn't going to give up on it and I'm glad I didn't.

This is a Goodreads-giveaway.
