    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 ruined by narration."

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes, use another narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tobias S. Buckell? Why or why not?

    Yes. Once I got past the annoying narration, the story and concepts he introduced were very intriguing


    Would you be willing to try another one of Carolyn Michelle Smith’s performances?

    Not unless there is absolutely no other choice and I REALLY wanted to listen to the book.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.
