About the book

Mixed reviews although it did promote quite a discussion as to where our futures or more importantly our grandchildren’s futures would end. Most members found it a “bit of a slog” but it is well worthwhile to keep going to reach the end. Think it may be a while before we read another book by the same author despite the fact that he is an amazing writer with an even more amazing imagination.
