it was amazing
Read from November 18 to December 03, 2011

This is an amazing piece of non-fiction. The premise itself ("what if humans just disappeared from the face of the earth? What would happen? What would the world look like over the course of the next thousand years or so?") is absolutely captivating, but the methods and sites Weisman uses to examine the possible outcomes are also quite insightful, and sometimes incredibly disquieting.
I can't wait to have a chance to re-read this book. It's not something I do often, but I feel like I haven't even scratched the surface of all the information I could glean from it. Absolutely wonderful.
