Great idea but I struggled to keep interest in parts.,
This review is from: The Carbon Diaries 2015: Book 1 (Paperback)
It is 2015 and in an effort to reduce the effects of global warming, carbon rationing as been introduced. This book follows the story of teenage Laura as she and her family struggle to deal with the effect that this has on all their lives.
Parts of this book were enjoyable and easy to read but I then in other parts I found myself losing interest and struggling to keep going. The diary format of the book did make it easy to read but sometimes I stuggled to read the 'newspaper clippings' that had been included as the text was so small! (Maybe that is just me and I perhaps need an eye test!)
This is quite an original plot so I would like to have given a higher rating and perhaps I am being a little harsh as this is aimed at teens and not 30yr olds with failing eyesight like myself!
