    Global warming has transformed the Earth, and it's about to get even hotter. The Arctic Ice Cap has all but melted, and the international community is racing desperately to claim the massive amounts of oil beneath the newly accessible ocean. Enter the Gaia Corporation. Its two founders have come up with a plan to roll back global warming. They plan to terraform Earth to save it from itself—but in doing so, they have created a superweapon the likes of which the world has never seen.

    K Cornwinkle says: "Plausible & interesting first 1/3; then falters"
    "Interesting story, shallow narration."

    Story
    What disappointed you about Arctic Rising?

    The narrator used voices and inflections that were way out of character for the story. It's a valley girl doing science fiction OMG!


    Would you recommend Arctic Rising to your friends? Why or why not?

    Get the book and do you own narration in you head.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The characters weren't differentiated enough to follow who was talking.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. Good story, to a point.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was interesting but lacked plausibility at time ..... a missile held upright with ropes?
