Customer Review

on 26 December 2012
A theme-related series of stories about a West Coast dystopia in which the environment has been ruined and then recovered, up to a point, by all-powerful corporations. Those living outside the "protection" of the corporations are effectively disenfranchised from any sort of comfortable life. Very well written, the research seems as sound as much as I know, and with some compelling characterisations. The problem I had is what one gets out of it. When I wrote my environmental disaster novel Glass House (http://www.amazon.com/Glass-House-Climate-Millennium-ebook/dp/B005U3U69C), I hoped to shock people into thinking about climate change and preparing for it on a useful scale. The Future, Imperfect does not particularly shock, perhaps because it seems such a logical outcome, nor does it strongly suggest a path away from this particular future. I look forward to the author's further writing on the subject.
