Joseph D'Lacey offers a fascinating tale about the evolution of Mother Nature's natural defense mechanism. Offering the idea that the Earth is looking to scale back on humanity's trashy nature, heaps of trash-animus begin to appear in a small English town. As photographer-turned-farmer Mason Brand finds and feeds one of the creatures, he sets in motion a natural disaster that is truly of humankind's own making. Though the premise and creature are fascinating, D'Lacey bogs down the story with extraneous characters and subplots. Aggie's London modeling, Tamson's lost baby, and our late-to-the-party third wheel character do little to enhance the plot. One wonders if the refuse of unnecessary segues would help this novel rise to the top of the heap.
