There are so many things I want to relay about Above the Ether by Eric Barnes that I am not uite sure I can give this book the justice it deserves Set in the near future we are thrust into the lives of ordinary everyday people faced with a ravaging earth There are some characters I can sympathize with while others not so much A father tries to protect his children from the floods as they abandon their home looking for safety A married couple suffering the devastating loss of both of their sons while the landscape around them burns A carousel worker suffering through his own loss and feels so alone A trader who makes money over the suffering of others These are just some of the characters explored in an ever changing worldEric Barnes has created an atmospheric and shocking story that even though is fiction and years ahead of us it is also uite relevant in today s world He shows in his lyrical prose the stark realities of life the desolation and destruction of a ravaged earth the sense of doom and the sheer terror people face day to day as they try to live in a world intent on destruction One thing that really struck a chord in me is these are ordinary people People that I might run across every day and not realize they are suffering through their own pain I don t think we ever really think about the person next to us and Barnes shows the reality of this by not naming his characters They are just faces in a crowd trying to live life the best they know how even if they are silently suffering insideEvery character in this story is really fleshed out and you can feel their pain and suffering Even though there might be a character or two I did not like I can also understand what made them this way While there are things I really enjoyed about this story there are also a few things that did make me cringe especially when it came to the investor and the boy Although the boy was never given an exact age for me it bordered on not being age appropriate Other than that one piece of information I can not find anything else that would deter someone from reading this story I definitely recommend if you are looking for something different and so so mainstream Dystopian

Thank you to Eric Barnes and Arcade for a copy of Above the Ether which I won in a Goodreads giveaway This is a dystopian novel set in our near future In it our Earth is so polluted and changed through global warming that the weather has become deadly and unpredictable Different characters all unamed travel across country This novel was very bleak and dark The end offered some glimpses of humanity and kindness but it was so grim it was tough getting through I was interested in many characters and I found a couple appalling If dystopia is your genre I think you d like it If like me you only read it infreuently be warned it is not a warm and happy future that Eric Barnes envisions
