A teenage arsonist threatens a partially submerged mid 22nd century San Francisco As a Public Investigator tryout seeks evidence across the utopian ci. Carlsson s book is set in the futuristic San Francisco The deluge submerged much of the city below sea level which reframed the built and wild environment accordingly Eventually a worldwide disease based die off and revolution followed What survived of San Francisco was a land and culture of simple prosperity Residents manage to have plenty of everything with a currency free economy and only minor work reuirements in part by simplifying their lives by no longer having so many private goods eliminating most internal combustion engines and turning roads into gardensThe best asset of this book is the vision of San Francisco that Carlsson creates It is the default of radicalprogressives to critiue Therefore there are many resources out there that lay out the problems that exist yet so few that provide thought about what could be Any attempts at giving alternative ideas at what our world could look like are laudable Carlsson goes as far as creating maps of the futuristic SF which is a great touch Of course many environmental visionaries use maps and art to make the point that open creeks and fewer roads are accessible beautiful and achievable This book feature also makes it easier for non locals to follow the spatially oriented storyThe story line overall was good It took a while to get going but once it did I got interested It had all the elements of a great booka newbie San Franciscan looking for love and belonging while chasing down a discontented young rebel Carlsson uses plot devices like a bicycle crash to explore the possibilities of integrative medicine and a job search to look at labor conditions and employment structures This is all set in a city having undergone radical change and struggling with socially debated ethical dilemmas around scientific growth which is one of the things that is defining them as a society The post revolution culture relies heavily on biotechnology resembling the internet but powered by organic matter The primary debates framed in the novel is where to draw the line on what is the acceptable appropriation of life forms for human life as well as the uestion of human need versus a healthy and balanced ecosystemAlthough Carlsson does a good job of bringing up many complicated and fascinating issues this book was pretty hard to read It was often long winded rambling and in need of editing It got bogged down in description which was sometimes useful for creating the utopian setting but other times tended to drag out the interesting aspects of the plot Every major event was interluded by a bike or ferry ride somewhere a trip to a cafe a puff of weed and noticing a cute girl Haha pretty easy to tell from this what Chris s an ideal day in SF looks likeHis characters although involved in complicated relationships and painted three dimensionally were also difficult to relate to and annoying The two main characters were both ungrounded uninvested and adolescent seeming which made me feel distracted from any particular movement in the plot our outcome Although the plot is one that facilitates the building of suspense I felt very little tension and didn t care too much about the outcome
