Building Harlequin’s Moon by Larry Niven and Brenda Cooper

Building Harlequin’s Moon puts me very much in mind of Kim Stanley Robinson’s books. Only Niven and Cooper do it in one volume. It’s a very satisfying generation-spanning hard-SF novel. I would quibble that it reads in the beginning like a character-driven book and at the end like a plot-driven book. This did make it feel a little lopsided to me. (On the other hand, I did stay up very late one night over the weekend in order to finish it.)
