did not like it
bookshelves: sf
Read in March, 2008

Made it about half-way through, and then gave up. This book is a)boring and b)unrealistic.

Boring, because, while I can see where real life would consist mostly of meetings and daily routines, those things really aren't that interesting to read about.

Unrealistic - not necessarily the whole climate change disaster stuff - that actually sounds plausible, it's the little things. For example, our main character is living in a treehouse in a park with some semi-feral primates, and none of his stuff gets stolen or rifled through. Or, the fact that his job consists of trying to stop/reverse the coming climate change disaster(s), his boss is introduced as a workaholic who expects the same from her employees, and he consistently works an 8-5 day.

Highly recommend you just avoid this one.
