'a book that will stay with me' ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Written by ecobookworm for Instagram on Monday, June 14, 2021

There's such thoughtful, nuanced, realistic world-building, addressing all aspects of how these changes affect the economy, society, technology availability and use, gender and generational dynamics, settlement and everyday life.

[...]

I especially appreciated the attention to social dynamics, of how women are treated, of how women and men regard each other, of anger toward the elderly, of the violent regulation of society by the Domins, and of changes in fertility and the new system for reproduction. And its specificity to the Caribbean, illustrating the worst threats to the region, is simply superb.

[...]

This book feels like a snapshot of a possible future, and is a highly effective work of storytelling and climate communication that engages the imagination and awakens emotions and awareness in a way that's so necessary today. It's a book that will stay with me.
