Journal Entry 1 by rednumbertwo from Ottawa, Ontario Canada on Friday, November 30, 2007
I can't believe I stumbled upon a copy of this book in my local used book store today! I wasn't even looking for it, and there it was sitting on top of a pile on the floor. The cover is hilarious, with a cartoon drawing of Charlton Heston that looks ready for Mad Magazine. I can't wait to read it!

From the back cover:

Twenty-first Century New York City - Population: 40 million

Let's follow a New York detective through a day in which a man's bizarre death brings together three people of very different backgrounds in a hauntingly unique adventure story of the imaginable future...

I have a feeling that the movie did this book a disservice, just by existing. I was expecting a whole lot of major plot points that just never happened. This book is a lot more gritty and depressing. You really start to feel the hopelessness of living in an overpopulated world. Quite good.

I got this from my sister and am looking forward to checking it out. I haven't watched the movie so that might help as I have no preconceived notions about the book. Except I know soylent green are people. Oops SPOILER! hehe.

So the film was only loosely based on the book!? I felt a little misled by Charlton Heston on the cover.

Definitely more of an apocalyptic tale of warning than I expected. Entertaining enough but not much hopefulness to get you through to the ending which just leaves you hanging.

This book is currently sitting on the Winnipeg Official Bookcrossing Zone bookshelf in Second Cup, 254 Edmonton St., Winnipeg MB.

It is waiting there for a new reader to take home, read, and release back into the wild!

This book has left the OBCZ shelf. Here's hoping the new reader will let us know about its journey.
