    Book Review

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Earth's Ecocide: Hope 2147 is a work of fiction in the science fiction and climate issues subgenres, and it forms part of the series of the same name. It is suitable for the general adult reading audience and was penned by author David A. Collier. In this debut novel about climate change and the disastrous future of a planet destroyed by intense shifts in temperature, we find the people of Earth witnessing the arrival of a strange orb that promises them help. Exploring the themes of harmony between people and the planet, the story covers the destruction of the planet’s precious biosphere and follows a path of hope that some of these problems can someday be reversed.

Author David A. Collier is clearly extremely passionate about his subject matter and has taken great pains to ensure that this series-opening novel presents the issues of climate change in an exciting and engaging fashion that will entertain readers, but also set them on a path to better eco-education. As such, the conceptual issues in the plot are well-researched and well-handled, and the science fiction elements laid over the top become more believable because of this grounding in realism. I also really enjoyed the use of dialogue, both in the way that it characterized some very typically human attitudes that are echoed in the here and now, and how it was an effective means of moving the plot forward and breaking up larger blocks of prose. Overall, Earth's Ecocide: Hope 2147 is a fascinating work that fans of climate fiction will undoubtedly enjoy.
