The question that follows this adventure is: can man be stopped from continuing to be a threat to the world he inhabits? The answers to this question will surprise the reader as they follow the well-sculpted characters.
R.J. Eastwood shows a lot of imagination in crafting this story and one can’t fail to notice the historical and scientific elements that are so brilliantly woven into the plot. The writing is injected with great realism and there is a prophetic message that comes out very clearly — humanity’s greed is at the root of the earth’s ills. The conflict developed in this book is monumental, and it is about the survival of the planet, a question that becomes today’s pressing reality with the increasing levels of global warming and natural calamities. The writing in The Autopsy of Planet Earth is excellent, with vivid descriptions that allow the reader to have clear images of elements of the setting. Here is a story that will entertain readers and force them to look at the earth with new eyes. Brilliantly plotted and accomplished with a master’s touch. A great read, indeed.
