review 1: A fantastic fiction (I hope) book of the world after a series of climate related disasters including the melting of all the ice caps, devastating storms, and a sweeping disease that has forced humans to live inside domes or suffer the life of an Outsider. The one thing that I kept thinking about while reading the book is how real this fictional world could be in a hundred or so years. While the utopian type world inside the domes seems perfect, those that are Friends know the dire situation of the increasing strength of storms and the impact they are having on the domes. Eli Papadopoulos is a character people can relate to: the youngest child, would rather do anything but study, and he has many questions that his parents/ family side-step or outright ignore time after t... moreime. The adventure starts on page one and continues until the very last page. My only question is this...will their be more to the story or will I, the reader, need to let my imagination continue the story?
review 2: I read this book because I had picked it up at the library hoping it would spark some intrigue in my son who is very "techie" and into science. Once I picked it up I couldn't put it down and read it all in about a day and half. The author really make an important topic of today come to life in a fictional (and yet completely tangible) story 100 years in the future. The author perfectly correlated the events that transpire in 100 years to our obtuse political and social non reactions regarding today's global crisis, which will affect our future generations and our ultimate existence. My son loved the book too, except that we are hoping that there will be a second book because we thought the end left us at sort of a cliffhanger. less
