Despite 'Seeing Green' being her first attempt at writing fiction, Annabel Hertz shows the prowess and deftness of an accomplished writer. The title and plot of the novel are based on environmental movement immediate post-Rio, but there is more to it then environmentalism. This is a novel about a flawed heroine, Arcani. Arcani, like many of us, has to deal with deficiencies (looks, ethnic heritage etc) that stop her from being part of the group that are designated as `most likely to succeed' at birth. Adding to her problems is her decision to find her own way to success and not to mimic or bow to the already successful. Hertz's magic is her masterful weaving of different parts of Arcani's existence with the atmosphere in the 1990's Washington. Power politics and idealism fight to take control of the new Clinton administration as they also try to control Arcani's life.

The difficulties Arcani faces professionally, have an analog in her personal life. Past experience, professional commitments and her flawed existence have made her afraid of opening to a new love interest.

Finally, Hertz has done us readers a favor by keep this novel sharp and focused. Around 200 pages in length, it can read and enjoyed in one or two sittings.

This book was engaging and informative from start to finish, as Ms. Hertz cleverly interwove the protagonist's personal/relationship escapades with her efforts and ambitions on the NGO front during a political turnover in D.C. I enjoyed the freshness of the protagonist, her trials, introspection, and her personal and professional growth as she confronts, grapples with, and reaches resolution on points of uncertainty and conflict in her life. I also gained insight into the tactical dance between NGOs, politicians, and the challenges of working for global change. We need more 'characters' like Arcani! I look forward to the next work from this author.

Arcani Kirsch is an environmentally conscious individual of Hopi and Jewish heritage. You like her the minute you meet her and the rest of the characters she meets along the way. Even the ones she really doesn't care for. It has a lot of comedic elements to it and you might even learn a thing or two about something you may or may not have had any interest in. So be prepared for a humorous tale that will keep you engrossed till the end and you'll enjoy every bit of it

This is a fun, light read (perfect for planes or vacations). It takes a humorous, but very honest look at the machinations of non-profits and the counter-intuitive, ironic, and sometimes frustrating culture and approaches engaged in by self-described idealists. Although the focus is the environmental communities, those truths are not unique to one particular cause. I found myself laughing out loud at this universality of experience. This is a great book for those interested in learning about the worlds of advocacy and activism. It is also a humorous validation of experience for those currently engaging in this work.

"Seeing Green" is an amusing yet insightful story. I found it entertaining and informative. I liked the plot, the characters, and felt it gave me an inside look into certain types of organizations and how they really work in Washington,DC. I read this book in one sitting, and hope to see more from this author soon.

Seeing Green is an engaging, current and informative read that demystifies the politics of the NGO world in Washington, DC. The witty voice of Arcani, the novel's protagonist, makes this book laugh-out-loud funny!

Seeing Green is a wonderful read! Great character development and intrigue. The main character, Arcani Kirsch, is a multi-dimensional modern day heroine, driven by her commitment to the environmental movement and conflicted at times with her personal life. As a reader I was drawn into the book and rooting for Arcani to succeed both personally and professionally. The narrative is lively and I was completely engaged. I'm looking forward to the sequel!
