A darkly compelling vision of the future
Not what I expected
I bought this on the strength of the film Soylent Green, but it feels more like Bladerunner without the gunfire.
"Soyent" added components to the book that gave the story more of an edge, while the book just meanders without really getting anywhere.
However, there IS a seriously good point about over-population. I just believe that other writers have done better in this area.
