Beyond Soylent Green 2050, Latest 5 Star Review


Reviewed By Ray Simmons for Readers’ Favorite, 7/11/2019

"I saw a movie called Soylent Green decades ago. It was a scary sci-fi, but it seemed more than a few steps away from the reality I was living as a young man then. It seemed like a possible world but not a very probable world based on society at the time. This is the frightening difference between Harry Harrison’s Soylent Green and Beyond Soylent Green 2050 by the D’Agostino brothers. It is easy to see the future depressing world of Beyond Soylent Green 2050 being created in the politics of America today. A wall around America? No longer a new or unthinkable idea. Social Security failing? One party is already eager to use that money for something else. They just don’t know how to do it without shooting themselves in the political foot. Is California going its own way? Some have been discussing that for years. I see the unpleasant world of Beyond Soylent Green 2050 being built brick by brick into the laws, attitudes, and policies of today and it frightens me to death.

Beyond Soylent Green 2050 by Michael and Danny D'Agostino is so possible that it will cause you to lose some sleep. The characters are from our future but they are Americans who could very well be alive today. That is one of the most frightening aspects of this book. The America of Beyond Soylent Green 2050 is recognizable, but just barely. Climate change, pollution, and overcrowding have taken their toll and the shocking part is that we can look around and see it happening today, but no one is proposing real solutions. The plot is fantastic but totally believable. The setting is grim but uncomfortably familiar. This is a great book. Every American should read it or, since this is America, maybe it should just be made into a good movie. Like the first one."
