Amazon book review for a colleague:
“An ocean rich with nutrients” could well describe Patricia Smith’s writing. It is, in fact, the opener to the fifth paragraph and a stark reminder of what could be lost through global warming in this imagined apocalypse.
Strong characterisation, well-researched science and visually descriptive writing laced with human themes of survival, altruism, quest and love, conspire to engage the reader from the very first page.
In the words of Smith’s Ambassador Hubert Rechenmov, “You have heard the facts and … time is rapidly running out…all we need is your most innovative minds and all the money you can spare.”
Don’t wait for Jupiter to metamorphosise: if there’s a book to read before the demise of human creation, this quite possibly could be it.
