Salvage AUTHOR Robert Edric

Uption that will put his integrity to the ultimate testHe meets Owen a suicidal farmer whose every last pig chicken and sheep has been culled And Winston a former journalist and alcoholic with a gallery of incriminating photos of rising water below the site; and Pollard the local Man of God whose faith is for sale But it is Anna uinn's some time girlfriend in charge of 'digging filling and capping' the dead. Set in the not too distant future when climate change has severely impacted the climate sea levels and lifestyles of people in the United Kingdom and all over the world this is the story of a normal man severely restricted by bureaucracy trying to figure out how to be a good person and still keep his job At least that s what I think it s about It was tremendously dark and depressing and I struggled with this as there were no high points in the story at all I liked uinn and strongly hoped for him to find a way to help the people of the town and find his own happiness I related to the difficulties of balancing moral and real life obligations It reminded me in many ways of The Investigation by Philippe Claudel

A moody gloomy book Had to laugh at another review saying it was too dry for her tastes Hardly the UK seems to be drowning under constant rain But never mind bureaucracy is alive and well and spin doctors are spreading glad tidings Written a few years ago before this year s flooding the novel is prescient but I just kept hoping in vain that something was going to happen

    The book has some merit in that it is well written with interesting characters but the story take us nowhere interesting It is set in the future when Britain is largely beset by floods and bad weather due to climate change

    A wonderfully written novel by a gifted author whom I'd never heard of prior to this book but which won't be the last of his I read Although seeming to have a very simple premise it is very much like Rembrandt's
