I love the movie Soylent Green, which is based on this book, and had heard that the book was substantially different than the movie.
Like the movie, the book is set in a dystopian future where overpopulation has caused the collapse of most of the social and economic structures of society.
Unfortunately, a lot of this comes in the form of direct rants from Sol, which are fairly clumsy info/editorial dumps and not even all that necessary.
It was just what I wanted & was delivered on time in great condition - Thanks I love it!!Published 2 months ago by Peter M. Knodel
We read this for our book group. Good choice.
I re-watched the movie, it seemed a little hokey (dated).
(I cheated I listened to the synched audio book.)
Better than the movie that came from it (Soylent Green), this book has a number of intertwining stories that keep the reader's attention. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Jason Frey
This book, which I discovered after watching the film Soylent Green, is interesting as an historical account of what some were worried about in the 1960s. Read more
... well told, and very interesting. I read mysteries rarely and sci-fi even less often, but this story kept me engaged. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Woesong
