    "I loved this book. In all senses someone can love a book: for its plot, for characters, point of view, but mainly for its meaning and how it really affects our lives. This was my first experience with Atwood's novels and I loved it. Language is wise and well done, carefully constructed. Ms. Atwood remains my number one favorite contemporary author - I just love her! "

    "Lug, Dawn of the Ice Age is a book for kids which also has elements of climate change in it. When anyone wants to find a novel about climate change, the likelihood of them being interested in this kind of story is quite low. They would rather read about something with serious tone, something thrilling and suspenseful. "

    "I was in the mood for a Fiction novel. My friend told m about The Milagro Beanfield War. I was thinking it would be like one of the many other war books I read. It was wrong. This book was about climate change and the struggles people will endure if it happens in real life. It scared me a little to read it but it was really good overall. "

    "I wouldn't say this was too much about climate change. Maybe metaphorically, but I feel like it doesn't truly get to the heart of climate change. It's a bit too Fern Gully for my tastes."
