This was a fascinating book by the author of Fifty Words for Snow, a book that I know many Littens have loved.

In 2010 Campbell gave up her job and spent the next 7 years in artist residences, all connected with ice and snow, including in #greenland. #readingtheamericas23

There‘s a lot of information & it‘s quite a dense read but a very rewarding look that explores many different cultural perspectives on ice and snow.

I really enjoyed this book, glad I finally read it. It's definitely quite a scary story about climate change and one everyone should read. I loved all the characters, it written in a way easy to read. One of my favourite from last year.

It felt like it took me a long time to read this. Parts of it flew by and other parts dragged. Thankfully the chapters were short, so when the subject matter was heavier it still seemed achievable.
It is scary, depressing and hopeful all at the same time. This book illustrates that there are things we can do, if only we would do them.

Ta-dah! 🎉🎉🎉 My book haul from yesterday! I was really only looking to get the Mantel novel, but of course ended up leaving with two more! 😂 I wasn't planning on getting the tagged book, but after reading the blurb and remembering how much I loved his previous book, Ohio, I caved and got it! 💕📚💕 #bookhaul

This madly ambitious, sprawling, epic work of near future climate fiction packs a serious punch. Yes, it is 900+ pages, and yes it is a little demanding. The emotional depth of the multiple character storylines provides balance for the heavy political themes in a way that really pays off. If you enjoyed The Overstory by Richard Powers, The Ministry For The Future by Kim Stanley Robinson, or Stephen King‘s The Stand then this will knock you out!

Reggie Ughhhh it wasn‘t at my bookstore today!!! 2w

I‘m posting one book a day from my massive collection. No description, no reason for why I want to read it (some I‘ve had so long I don‘t even remember why!) Feel free to join in!

Highly recommend. Tough stuff, but such an important and urgent message. She has many positive and thoughtful plans for a peaceful transition into mass climate migration. I only wish I believed that things could work out that way. See comments for a link to a short NPR interview with the author.

The Guardian's long read article by Rebecca Solnit is very concise, calling for more good news stories to combat despair & indifference.
