Additional Comments (Please type or paste your review here): This book is about a group of people that have progressed in evolution being taken over by another group of people who have progressed in technology and the fight to take back their land. Although this sounds great and the book is well written, I felt like the entire book was written just to get a few points across in a way that the author could say "It's just a story" to any argument brought against his paper. I think this should have been a persuasive essay rather than a fiction book.
