Whitley Strieber, James Kunetka

Whitley Strieber, James Kunetka. Crossroad Press, 13 июн. 2016 г. 0 Отзывы. In their second shocking and fascinating portrait of America's possible destiny, Whitley Strieber and James Kunetka have again written a breathless thriller, a book that gives us an important warning and ultimately a message of hope.

James William Kunetka (born September 29, 1944) is an American writer best known for his science fiction novels Warday and Nature's End. He has also written non-fiction on the topic of the atomic age. Kunetka was born and grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He received a BA in Political Science from the University of Texas at Austin. Kunetka's first book, City of Fire, was published in 1978. He co-wrote two novels with his long time friend Whitley Strieber, including his best known book, Warday.

This deeply underrated book's predictions are coming true before our very eyes. From the concept of "conviction," the practice of creating an interactive avatar of public figures, to the blithe disregard for the endgame of environmental destruction, to the economic stratification of America - Nature's End is a haunting prophecy. The book was written in 1986 and is set in 2025. A clear-eyed extrapolation of trends... the authors connect stories by citing real news stories from the 1980s and extending them into the future. Highly recommended, as is Warday (also by Kunetka and Strieber).
When I first read "Nature's End", I was in high school. This is my 5th copy of this wonderful prophetic story. I have "leant" all 4 to people who must really like it since they never returned them. The characters in this book seem like people I might have known. The situations that happen along the way seemed likely to happen when I first read it now seem to be happening now. The story is very complex and everything that happens or is reported to have happened in the news is essential to moving the story along. I can't recommend "Nature's End" highly enough. True, it is sci-fi, or is it a tale of the very near future? Enjoy!!
I love the story! Amazing depth with the ability to make you think deep thoughts and contemplate our ever changing landscape of life. I had read this years ago and my lent copy was NOT returned. I had to replace it and Cat Magic to read again. Yes, it's that good they're both that good. I count novels I re-read on ONE hand currently, and I am a prolific reader. Do the math then check out this unique story!
deadly claw
I really liked this book. I read it many years ago, and picked it up again last year to read once again. It was written back in the early 80's, but set in the near future. I enjoyed how the authors would take real excerpts from newspapers and put them at the beginning of every chapter. It was also interesting how they would add their own articles for the events that happened later (ie: they would have more excerpts that would be from the year 1990, or 2000, or 2010, etc. etc.) They painted a dark image of how the world may end up, but I think they did a fantastic job of keeping you interested and wanting to read more and more. If you like Fiction that's got a swirl of truth, than you will love Nature's End.
As advertised
BRILLIANT WORK!!!! I read this book when it first came out, and and again three decades later. This was a prophetic and accurate depiction of science and social mores and movements, which seemed far fetched at first reading; but in reality, every reader should have based their portfolios upon the predictions and hypotheses extrapolated here. This book stayed with me nearly thirty years, making a deeper impression than any "must read" volume since.
Such a great book. Out of print, glad I found it.
makes you really think about what is happening in the world
