Finished Nature's End today. I couldn't find a single character with whom to identify in the whole book. Everybody in Strieber's world is so goddamned weird. After reading Orson Scott Card, this was a big letdown. At the same time, the possibilities of massive desertization and atmospheric damage within my lifetime are quite real, so what it lacked in entertainment value it made up for in pushing me back to my permaculture experimentation. This time I hope I don't forget to take some Carpobrotus cuttings with me from San Diego to Deming.
