Read full description of the books:
Well, this was both educational and depressing. Very much not for the faint hearted and for those interested in politics and the impact of carbon.
So this is a political thriller set some 30 years in the future. No Jack Ryans or steely eyed special forces types, this is a kind of West Wing drama but taken very seriously without the humour of the series. The world is in a bad place and especially the US where some of the population is having to be re-located because of flooding. Decades of ineffective Koyoto talks have resulted in carbon emissions having a serious impact and yet neither the US or China have taken any actions to reduce their output.
Here we have a new US President discovering just how bad the situation is and trying to negotiate with the Chinese for long term change. And the book is about the politics, the negotiations and the global impact as things get escalated.
Very hard to review, it is no ‘thriller’, it is political fiction set against a frighteningly real scenario, perhaps demonstrated by the current extensive flooding in the UK. If the subject matter hits your sweet spot you will probably enjoy this a great deal, if not you might find it hard going.
