Wasn’t too sure where this book was going to start with but I was soon captivated, as I travelled along with Gavin to Gardenia. It’s so unusual to have a utopian fiction novel rather than the more disturbing dystopian premises that actually, in its own way, it was still rather creepy.

Very interesting ideas in here though, about what life would be like if energy consumption wasn’t an issue - about how society would function if left to their own devices. Would we all just get on or would it become a rioting mess?

I really loved the ideas about harnessing solar power and particularly the space travel, but hey, I don’t want to give too much away, so I’ll just say that I now desperately need to read the second book of the trilogy.
