"I encourage you to read the book jacket which describes the premise of this book better than I could do. What I can do is share with you that the writing is beautiful with so many quotable/memorable lines that I wish I could memorize them all. “Nobody’s perfect, but, man, we all fall short so beautifully”. The writing throughout is beautiful: “Rocks on both sides were splattered with an action painting of lichen, moss and algae.”
The story is set sometime in the near future where the effects of climate change are becoming more apparent; more animals are endangered; more rivers and streams are polluted. Politicians are more interested in denying science than in making changes to laws and programs. Scientific explorations and experiments are eliminated or are underfunded. This is the world through which the astro-biologist father and his son are navigating.
Probably my favorite book of this year!"— Susan
