Interesting futuristic fiction, with many flashbacks. The stuff about the effects of global warming in the future parts are quite un-nerving.

If all the claims of the newspaper headlines about mass extinction, global warming, and the holes in the ozone are true, then what will our immediate future look like?
In this novels' version, it is pretty bleak, but comically so.

T.C. Boyle wrote A Friend of the Earth, an enronmentally-focused novel about a man caught up in the "Save the World" campaign with an organization that uses terroristic methods to get their message out. Definitely a satire, but kind of depressing.

This is one of my favorite books. The characters are flawed and endearing in all the right places. The precautionary narrative is presented with classic Boyle humor which makes the distasteful portrait of future consequences to our current disregard for the natural world quite palatable.

Environmental futuristic horror story/ love? story
Fans of Orwell or huxley would enjoy maybe... anyone interested in global warming/ eco-causes.... Earth First-ers
