Among the sorrow and the wonder, there is a moment in All of The Above that takes a bewildering concept and clarifies it to the level of absurd simplicity. “Our efforts to keep things going as they are just keep in place the very things that are killing us.” Did you know that? The culture of Industrial Civilization is a culture of denial. Good writing transcends any amount of cultural bullshit we are fed. The best writers of science fiction, for that is what All of The Above clearly is, ...more

I heard the news today, oh boy. The stream of stories was like a dopey sophomoric science fiction novel from the 25 cent box at St. Vinnie’s — The Planet of the Consumers, or something. The Republican candidates are an unbelievable freak show. The President is a slick-talking hand puppet owned by the investment banking crime syndicate. Lecherous football coaches are fondling slippery naked boys in the shower room. Everyone is praying for economic recovery and full employment, so we can fire up ...more

Bennett is a friend of my dad's so I got a surprise signed copy in the mail. Fun! The book was kind of... chaotic. There were a lot of things happening both in terms of the structure of the book and the plot. Bennett spends quite a bit of the book preaching (in the time honored fashion of explanatory dialogue between characters) and while the ideas are interesting, it interrupts the flow of the narrative.

There's a also a good bit of deus ex machina throughout the book, which, for me, lessened so

Awesome and thought provoking!

The chaos and confusion of this day and time mirror the story line, long may you run...I enjoyed the book, and don't like Amazon telling me how may words I have to put in the review.

Dense and confusing but powerful read.

What begins as an odd tale of strange dreams, government intrigue, and some X files esque color, turns into a massive rant about how humanity is destroying our planet. It is a message each of us ignores at our own and, our children's peril.
