The Wall | John Lanchester
Pickpick

A slow book with periods of boredom for the characters punctuated with sheer terror. I found there to be parallels between those on The Wall and the young men in the trenches in WW1; a lack of understanding why and mistrust in the elite and the old not serving time. Questions are raised about immigration and climate change, I enjoyed the quiet spaces in the book which allowed reflection.

Itchyfeetreader This is a fascinating review you have piqued my interest ! 4h

I think audiobooks are the only way I am going to get any reading done this summer. Turns out, as your kids become teens but can‘t drive yet, all you do is shuttle them everywhere.

I have to bail. 80 pages in and it‘s as bad as doing a 12 hour shift at the Wall. Lol To me, this book is like watching paint dry.

JanuarieTimewalker13 I realize this may be a bit harsh, my hemoglobin is low and I‘m like Edward before the hunt, but I still stand by it, maybe not as bad as watching paint dry, that is extreme, but let‘s say the book wasn‘t for me. 1d

My reading has sadly taken a hit recently between work and house projects!

I am getting in some porch reading this morning before the rain rolls in and I start on this weekends project- repainting the bathroom ceiling (thrilling, I know!)

I‘m a little behind on my last #LMPBC #Round5 book but hope to make good progress on it this weekend! I find it quite intriguing so far.

FlowerFairy Love your mug! 4d

“It‘s not the future, but it‘s a version of a future, and it feels a lot like a version of the future that we are heading for.”

This is John Lanchester describing the tagged book, about England after an (utterly believable) apocalypse due to climate changes. It is a very good book and it fits The Clash‘s lyrics perfectly!

BarbaraBB @Cinfhen It is a short one and easy to read but its impact is as huge as the wall surrounding England 😘 4d

He continues: Computers process information--including enormously complex climate models, which allow us to speculate about just how much trouble our technological society has gotten itself into.

I live in CO and this book felt a little too close to.home with regards to what could happen in CO in say 10 years...

The ending felt a bit flat, rushed and left me without a clear ending. But overall the book was well done. The research around water rights both junior and senior waa well done. It was clear the author did a considerabke amount of work to ensure that this book was as close to the truth as possible
