There is nothing not to love about this book. Tired of cookie cutter books written mostly by AI and edited by grammarly? Those are a dime a dozen. If you want to be swept away to another world, two other worlds, the likes of which are NOT the same tired tripe you've read again and again, Terraform Charlie is a must read.
Yes, Earth is in trouble again but the approach to it is unique in that the plan being implemented is the type of plan passed on to the next generation.
You'd think they'd have thought of everything, but Terraforming a new world has all kinds of potential problems.
Forget about the way you expect it to go, forget about the way similar plot lines have gone with it. In Terraform Charlie you're going to be blown away by every twist and turn. From new lifeforms to power struggles between everyone involved who wants control, to ancient messages from the future, you'll have to read it understand that, this book is one of the best I've read in the last 20 years. And thats no small amount of books.
I wish I could give it 10 stars.
Edge O. Erin is brilliant in writing a well balanced novel that never gets boring and never feels rushed. He goes from A plot to B plot smoothly and without plot holes or continuity issues.
He's also done his research, and I don't just mean a quick Google search. It's clear when you read it, Edge put in serious time studying Terraforming, among other things.
I can't recommend it enough, just read it and you'll see what I mean.
ATTN. Screenwriters, want a project to put good movies back on the map once strikes are over? Terraform Charlie is your Huckleberry.
