Gut-Check Green (Sonoma Knight #3): A climate fiction thriller Reviews
If you were an environmental activist, what would you do to stop a big agrochemical corporation in its tracks? Would you go as far as these guys did? Don’t think so. But what they did is an interesting fantasy and, as environmentalist, I couldn’t help being slightly amused by some of the antics of this band of activists who take matters into their own hands. Who would have thought of using LSD as a weapon?I get the feeling some parts of Gut-Check Green were written tongue in cheek, but the story nevertheless carries a strong message. There should be consequences for poisoning the land. In Peter Prasad’s story, all it took to right a wrong was a handful of committed people who knew how to harness the power of the internet. It's a well written thriller with some unusual characters, but most of all, it brings to attention a matter of serious concern.
Vivid. This is the first word that comes to mind as you read Gut-Check Green. Prasad's use of description is nothing short of magic. You want to be transported into another world? You want to escape reality and immerse yourself into someone else's fight?Pick up this book. Now. When I started reading this book, I felt like I was watching a movie play out in my mind. That same magic stayed with me throughout the entire story. But it's not just his writing style that grabs you. You feel like you become the characters. You feel like you are inside their heads; their addictions. And you want to pull for every characters, even if you feel a little guilty by doing so. But it's more than just the description or the characters that made this such a strong story for me. As a writer, I read not just for enjoyment, but to learn how to perfect my own craft. While I was reading Gut-Check Green, I was taking mental notes on how Prasad worked out his action scenes. There were no wasted words. No fillers to make the story longer. Each word had its place to further enhance the story. Each line written can be used to make the reader feel like they are watching something they really shouldn't be seeing. But you can't look away. And you can't quit reading.Overall, Gut-Check Green is a great thriller. Once I started, I couldn't put it down. Neither will you.
