I was also glad to see the novel exploring a variety of technical solutions to the climate crisis. Science fiction! Climate fiction

The book focuses on an important issue of environmental degeneration and William's effort to revive it by becoming the part of UNIRO. Good review.

I really enjoyed reading your review. I only read a sample of the book and your review helped me to understand it better. It's great when the protagonist of the story is someone interesting and rootable, that is a very big plus. I also like the fact that this book was full of suspense, which is a must for me when reading science fiction. Also it dealt with environmental issues which is sort of intriguing to me. Thanks for your review.

A sci-fi story about how mankind tries to find a way to undo the damage done to our planet. The book seems appealing, but with the cliffhanger, I don't think I'll go after it. Unless it has a sequel.

Great review! I read the Amazon sample of this book before reading your review, and after reading your review, I now want to read this book even more!

The sample really drew me in, and I already care about William Emerson.

Your line, "Is it too little, too late?" made this book sound suspenseful all on its own, so I am very eager to read it. :D

I like the fact that this book is full of suspense, the book is focused on environmental degeneration and for this issue to be taking care of UNIRO had to seek for the effort of William so the environmental problems will be solved.

I really don't like sci-fi that much, but this one looks more interesting than others I have seen or read. The review was insightful and gave me a good idea into the story. It really looks suspenseful!!
