    PDF George Turner ë ë The Sea and Summer PDF á The Sea Epub / summer kindle, The Sea book, The Sea and Summer Kindle Drowning Towers is yet another good entry in the sciencespeculative fiction genre The title ruins the first impression though because it sets the tone of doom and gloom way too early For that reason the title given to the novel inside the novel The sea and summer works much better The sea and summer is very innocent and is very much in contrast with the world the author portrays Turner's vision of the future is grim and dreary; it might not be as extreme as Harris

    PDF George Turner ë ë The Sea and Summer PDF á The Sea Epub / summer kindle, The Sea book, The Sea and Summer KindleTechnically a science fiction title it is just near futuristic – and hauntingly plausible In the coming decades class stratification leads to sharp division between Sweet those with jobs and a tenuous grasp at some sense of instable stability roughly analogous to our present day middle class and Swill the despised underclass forced to contend with sea levels rising around their high rise towers massive unemployment and no sense of hope Billy Kovacs a tower boss keeps his world afloat through bribery conniving and finally through an act of brutality and calculation that I’ve only seen eualed in Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men Fabulous

    PDF George Turner ë ë The Sea and Summer PDF á The Sea Epub / summer kindle, The Sea book, The Sea and Summer KindleMe oh my oh the Australians know how to show the slow slide into apocalypse Mad Max shows a world not too different from our own but terrible in its changes In that movie the changes are never really discussed but they are the subtext of the film Australian author George Turner's Arthur C Clarke Award winning Drowning Towers known as the Sea and Summer in the UK tells a similarly bleak tale of life after the decline of civilizationThe book is framed by a story of the Autumn people so called because they await the coming of the new Ice Age or Long Winter who live some centuries from now in Australia Much of the coastal cities are now submerged under the risen seas The Autumn people are disdainful of the Greenhouse people who failed to stop the sea from rising An artist among them using diaries to try to reconstruct how the Greenhouse people liveThe Greenhouse people story centers on a Sweet family that has fallen among the Swill The Sweet are the tiny upper

    PDF George Turner ë ë The Sea and Summer PDF á The Sea Epub / summer kindle, The Sea book, The Sea and Summer KindleThis book was recommended to me when I was looking for a novel about ecocastrophe to teach; it's very much a pity that it is out of print It was published in 1987 and the concerns it reflects are still very much in the forefront particularly economic collapse and ecological catastropheIn mid 21st century Australia there is 90% unemployment the small and tenuous middle class the Sweet are in constant fear of losing their jobs but buck themselves up with their scorn of the Swill who live in tower blocks and barely eke out an existence on government subsidies When a father's job loss and suicide lead a mother and her two sons from a comfortable Sweet life to the Fringe of respectability they meet an extraordinary man But unlike the
