This was the book Soylent Green was based off of. I was kind of disappointed there was no "Soylent Green is PEOPLE?!" moment. The book is about a cop in New York city in "the future" year of 1999, when the US has 344 million citizens and the whole world is ridiculously overcrowded and almost completely out of resourses. I didn't really like the book, because one, I was hoping for Soylent Green, two, since it's set in a future that's already in our past, it kept taking me out of the book, and finally, because it seemed like the book was going in one direction (just following a cop trying to solve a murder and deal with riots and an abundance of crimes) and then changed his mind halfway through and started preaching about the course mankind is on.
