Laura Brown's diaries lend edgy wit and engaging self-doubt to the most distressing circumstances. (Bookseller)

Edgy, witty, clever, heartfelt. ***** (Books For Keeps)

Format: Paperback
The Carbon Diaries are written in a rather simplistic manner, with Saci Lloyd using her almost-classroom familiarity with youth terminology and concerns to get the message across. Despite the obvious target market, the CDs are worryingly-realistic; it is not hard to imagine London without the Thames-barrier and what life might be like in the parts of London reclaimed by the Sea.

Saci Lloyd's writing style is vividly descripitive although limited by the use of the diary-style entries. As a result the account of the dystopian future is somewhat subjective, but this really isn't a drawback as it allows the reader to really get to know the inner-workings of our protagonist's - Laura Brown - mind and her take on the situation. It also gives a level of familiarity with her relationships; with her parents and her friends that definitely builds on the first CD book.

The Carbon Diaries 2017 is the second book in the series (The Carbon Diaries 2015) and we find Laura Brown a couple of years older and wiser, trying to get through University and keep her band - the Dirty Angels - together, all the while looking for love in this newly carbon-strangled world. Recommended!!
