I read this book before I knew that the author was a naturalist, he's a great writer never the less. This is a powerful book written long before it was fashionable to be `green' and consider the effects of what we do to our planet. Jefferies moved me like no other on this subject and I think that if more of us read this book we'd be more willing to look after our planet. Far more effective than Al Gore, if I can be so bold.
Also it's a great story, I have to also admit I liked reading about the strange society that grew up after the collapse and the different customs and rules they created. A great read!
Add to that that it's a really good read, with a very cool plot and some incredibly interesting fictional `what if's' in relation to how the survivors live after the collapse. Very cool and captivating book!
Very good book, very well written and persuasive.
Very Al-Gore-ical i.e. its a post apocalyptic future where nature is one of the dangers, not because it has any kind of direction, just that it is now untamed. Environmental types will also like this book for that reason, and the main character is a 'thinker not a fighter'.
This book would make a terrific movie!
