Product description

SMALL, WELL APPOINTED FUTURE. SEMI DETACHED. If the end of the world is nigh, then surely it's only sensible to make alternative arrangements. Certainly the Earth has its points, but what most people need is something smaller and more manageable. Of course there are those who say that's planetary treason, but who cares what the weirdos and terrorists think? Not Nathan. All he cares is that his movie gets made and that there's somebody left to see it. In marketing terms the end of the world will be very big. Anyone trying to save it should remember that.

By Spencer 13 Jan 2013 2

I really didn't like this book. It was very boring and extremely hard to read and get into. I found it hard to focus and actually read it. Nothing interesting happened until about two thirds of the way in maybe more and it had a very rushed ending. This book however did make you think about the planet and made you ask yourself a few questions about what we are doing to it. All in all though do not let my opinion persuade you in any way as many people have different tastes/views/opinions/likes and dislikes. This just happened to be one of my dislikes.
