    As METAtropolis: Green Space moves into the 22nd Century, human social evolution is heading in new directions after the Green Crash and the subsequent Green Renaissance. Nearly everyone who cares to participate in the wired world has become part of the "Internet of things", a virtual environment mapped across all aspects of the natural experience. At the same time, the serious back-to-the-land types have embraced a full-on paleo lifestyle, including genetically engineering themselves and their offspring.

    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed book one. Book two was ok but I could only get 10 minutes into the second story before I gave up. I just have trouble getting excited about a geriatric protagonist in a story that doesn't entertain me.

    I thought the theatrical performance was a little better but I find myself struggling to pay attention.

    The topics I found most interesting in book one seem to have remained undeveloped while the topics I liked the most, which I would argue are the most boring, have been developed further.

    If you wrote a fantastic story beyond the first two, my apologies. I won't be reading it. The series just can't hold my attention.
