Waters of Death To Farm the SeaFood In the year , it was man s greatest problem With the enormous increase in population and the extension of longevity, there simply wasn t enough to go around The sea farms were the only solution but they were in themselves a potential threat to man s futureScience and technology had advanced fantastically, of course The real trouble waspeople Human beings had not changed The sea farmers had good reasons for being rebellious their work was hard and dangerous and their rewards small And the rest of the population was rapidly becoming a total police state, but one which might revolt at any momentThen the harvests from the sea began to drop offand the government decided to hand the whole problem to just one man Dr Robert Wilde found himself alone as no man had ever been before with a clouded past, hated by those he was trying to help, harassed by powerful men seeking powerDid he had a future Did the world Full review I apologize for the lack of deep philosophical insight into the nuances of the book in question None can be dispensed inferred implied or even invented that would adequately embody the throbbing intellect that exudes forth from every word Instead, I shall wax nostalgic.I loved underwater farms cities towns when I was a child I drew translucent housing domes in cross section, replete with carefully delineated plots of seaweed Full review I apologize for the lack of deep philosophical insight into the nuances of the book in question None can be dispensed inferred implied or even invented that would adequately embody the throbbing intellect that exudes forth from every word Instead, I shall wax nostalgic.I loved underwater farms cities towns when I was a child I drew translucent housing domes in cross section, replete with carefully delineated plots of seaweed My wife bought me this book while she was shopping for Make Room Make Room and the blurb was interesting enough that I started in on it right away temporarily putting aside the 981 page monstrosity I was reading I really like the dystopian setting where the only way to get enough food is to farm the sea and having a lower caste doing the farming puts an interesting sociological twist.This was published in 1967 and it shows What I noticed the most was the outdated way in which the female ch My wife bought me this book while she was shopping for Make Room Make Room and the blurb was interesting enough that I started in on it right away temporarily putting aside the 981 page monstrosity I was reading I really like the dystopian setting where the only way to get enough food is to farm the sea and having a lower caste doing the farming puts an interesting sociological twist.This was published in 1967 and it shows What I noticed the most was the outdated way in which the female characters were portrayed, it kept reminding me the entire time that the book was as old as I am At first I thought that the romantic sub plot was irrelevant but I came around later whenof the story had unfolded Even so I felt that this thread took an implausible turn which earned it ten demerits Are demerits even a thing in book reviews The primary plot proceeded along nicely until we actually get out in the field The scene where we finally get to see what is going on under the surface felt unsatisfying to me, it changed from a plausible set of circumstances where I was eager to find out what was causing the harvest problems to a really lame climactic scene that I felt didn t tie up the storyline.I didn t care for the writing style very much either, the dialogue was often stilted There was some world building that was delivered as dialog which felt out of place as the character listening to the exposition would have known that information in many cases.I really wanted to like this since the seed for a great story is there but with the flaws pointed out above I can t rate it any higher than three stars Just awful Cheesy 60s sci fi with the wise scientist who sounds the alarm on an issue, but without any redeeming qualities Would be impossible to get through if it wasn t so short and the plot so thin. Objectives women in the way you expect from old science fiction The ending was good though Letto in una serata Il romanzo in se parte con la descrizione di un futuro distopico e totalitario dove chi persegue un poco di ambizione personale viene punito con una correzione mentale neurale Il protagonista un biologo e oceanografo, che viene mandato a Barbuda, nelle Antille, dove ha base una delle tre grandi fattorie marine che forniscono il cibo al mondo Quella delle Antille, da sola, fornisce il 66% di tutto il fabbisogno mondiale, ma gli agricoltori marini non se la passano bene I Letto in una serata Il romanzo in se parte con la descrizione di un futuro distopico e totalitario dove chi persegue un poco di ambizione personale viene punito con una correzione mentale neurale Il protagonista un biologo e oceanografo, che viene mandato a Barbuda, nelle Antille, dove ha base una delle tre grandi fattorie marine che forniscono il cibo al mondo Quella delle Antille, da sola, fornisce il 66% di tutto il fabbisogno mondiale, ma gli agricoltori marini non se la passano bene Inoltre i raccolti delle ultime due annate hanno subito un forte calo e il governo sospetta gli agricoltori marini di sabotaggio Se poi ci mettiamo un trumvirato di golpisti, i soliti guai che le persone hanno con mogli, figli, divorzi, difficolt ad accettare certe decisioni e il mistero del perch i mari si stanno impoverendo abbiamo un romanzo interessante.La base un classico dilemma della scienza moderna, declinato in ambito marino il paradosso della trappola malthusiana.Sarebbero 2 stelle e mezza, ma il finale, ossia gli ultimi due capitoli, hanno preso un sentiero che, nel complesso, non mi attendevo Quindi arriva a tre stelle
