I enjoyed the humour in this book. Gareth Renowden shows how the world might be after some decades of political and civil collapse caused by global warming. Obviously some places have suffered more than others, although the book tends to focus on New Zealand, Australia and the USA. There is plenty of room for other countries to be included in sequels, which I hope will be written soon. At the heart of the story (to my mind) is where is Mr Croft (the owner of the airship being flown by the heroes of the story, Jenny and Lemmy)?
4 stars for the story, 3 for the writing style. (I updated my review to four stars, thinking i had been a bit harsh). I am longing for the next episode!
