    1. Acclaimed Australian author Victor Kelleher explores themes of apocalypse, human responsibility, survival and freedom in a sinister future scenario where two teens are sent back to repopulate the earth thousands of years from now. As a middle aged woman teen sci fi holds no real attraction for me yet the serendipity of finding this book on a shelf in an old NSW nurses hostel was a fortunate stroke of luck. I really enjoyed it. A genre I need to delve into more! He writes a good human interest st [...]


    2. Victor takes what, at the time of publishing, was still hypothesis and hotly contended theories and turns it into reality. Applied to today, it's probably not far from the truth from what's happening to the planet and also the path humanity would take in the face of extinction. The use of teenagers was probably to keep in with the target audience but their personalities were of a more mature couple. Walter was just annoying when he lost his ability to talk properly because most of the time I had [...]

    4. The end didn't feel very complete. (view spoiler)[The whole 'one voice' thing didn't seem to be solved. If the insects hadn't been behaving as normal insects then how was the forest living anyway? What was spreading the seeds and working on the soil and providing food for smaller animals? Now the insects know all creatures have been spliced and the share common genes, they are going to stop trying to be the strongest and allow themselves to be eaten? (hide spoiler)]
