The perfect read for this season when capitalism reads its ugly head and urges us to buy buy buy! Who made the clothes you‘re wearing? Did they earn a living wage? How many times will you wear these items? Questions to consider before buying new. The author works in the fashion industry and CARES about humans earning a living wage and taking care of the planet. A great reminder of how to do better and what corps should be doing differently.

Cortg I really enjoyed this one and recommended it to my nonfic book club readers. I‘ve been a more conscientious purchaser after reading this. 5d

This well written book is a warning abt climate change as seas rise + flooding threatens to overwhelm the country. 2 scientists predict the disasters pending but secure an E anglia home for their 2 children Caro + pauly who journey there to find Sally + her G/f. The subsequent 3 voice tale takes us to the brink of doom with a bleak future anticipated. Not a lot of hope for #ahopepunknovel 👇@Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @alisiakae #booked2022

andrew61 I had to look up what hopepunk meant + from I can see it is about people facing up to challenges particularly climate. While the ending of this is not positive it is a book warning us about the future but how individuals can live together and look after each other. An interesting genre idea so while not uplifting an author I like (sight is excellent) it is full of ideas and I am sure I will be thinking abt it. Its an irl read with station 11. 1w
rwmg I'm not sure East Anglia is where I'd go if I was worried about flooding 1w
Dilara @rwmg That's exactly what I was thinking 😂 1w

🎧 Hard sci-fi about Climate change, a bridge between fiction & fact.

Heat related deaths. Political intrigue. Multiple points of view & narrators.

Liked the multiple narrators but some didn‘t seem to have a good grasp of the material. Still, I enjoyed it with multiple voice actors.

Author has a positive outlook on global warming. An interesting, thought provoking read. On the cusp of post-apocalyptic as it‘s definitely not utopian.

⭐️⭐️⭐️3/4

Reggie I felt so bad for the guy in the beginning and you see how easy it is to become a terrorist/future activist. I was kinda mad at the author. I didn‘t feel he married the nonfiction with the fiction as well as he could have. 2w
Twainy @Reggie agree … 2w
