Disclaimer I received an advance reader’s copy of the novel from the author in exchange for an honest reviewAlthough I was really looking forward to reading this novel it turned out to not be my cup of tea at all I detest preachy prose Nature’s Confession is explicitly promoted as climate fiction or “cli fi” On the page facing the title page “The state of the cli fi genre” is printed in bold followed by two uotations describing climate fiction as a recent phenomenon related to climate change Science fictional treatments of environmental concerns have been around almost as long as science fiction itself but I’m particularly annoyed by the manner in which the most vociferous proponents of cli fi conveniently forget all about Gilgamesh and Noah surely to be considered two of the earliest climate fictional protagonists Unfortunately the novel failed to recover from this irksome startI did enjoy a few things such as the use of “homosapianity” 132 to denote an all too human blend of stupidity and ingenuity according to the internet not a new coinage as well as the use of Cuppy a six legged alien dog as first person narrator in some of the later chapters Nature’s Confession is packed with ideas – it potentially contains enough material for an entire series of books Judging by the discussion uestions at the end it is intended to be used in schools and I think it could work well enough in the right classroom Nevertheless many of those uestions struck me as much interesting than the novel itself My impression is that the main concern had been to maintain a fast paced storyline and that this trumped all other considerations I found the superficial engagement with ideas off putting often than not sweeping statements stand in for argument Even the editing seems rushed – I cannot remember when last I read a printed book containing this many errors While some sci fi staples artificial intelligence terraforming geo and bioengineering time travel space exploration surveillance and encounters with aliens play an important role in the plot I would especially have liked to have seen a nuanced treatment of other issues pertinent to climate fiction These include ethnicity and gender the power relations inherent in corporatism and consumerism the problems surrounding distinctions between human and nonhuman animal alien or cyborg and uestions of agency and responsibility Finally as the novel is so explicitly categorised as climate fiction a comparison with just a few recent works which deal thematically with climate andor climate change seems justified but Nature’s Confession comes up short in most cases For example the satire seems heavy handed when compared to Margaret Atwood’s MaddAddam trilogy or even Maggie Gee’s The Flood and The Ice People; the novel lacks the inventiveness of Paolo Bacigalupi’s work; details are usually skimmed over so there is none of the lyricism of Jeanette Winterson’s The Stone Gods or Doris Lessing’s Margaret and Dann novels; and there is unfortunately no sign of the poignancy of Barbara Kingsolver’s Flight Behaviour While it is perhaps slightly unfair to compare this YA novel to the work of such acclaimed writers its deliberate marketing as a significant contribution to climate fiction seems rather ill considered Activism doesn't need to descend into didacticism and the novel is not redeemed by the author's good intentions
