Reader Review: The Ministry for the Future

Ministry for the Future book coverThe Ministry for the Future” by Kim Stanley Robinson took much longer to read than I expected. This book weaves several compelling fictional stories together with descriptions of real-life responses to climate change in a way that captured my attention for several weeks. I would read 30 pages and then need a day to think about what I had read before tackling another section — and I normally devour books whole! I highly recommend this book for readers who are willing to take a deep dive into what climate change will mean for people, and the many different ways that we can choose to think about addressing it.

Three words that describe this book: Thought-provoking, challenging, wide-ranging.

You might want to pick this book up if: You might pick up this book if you are concerned about climate change and want to think outside the box.
