The Culling by Robert Johnson

The CullingThe Culling by Robert Johnson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The title tells all but what is doesn't say is the magnitude of problem facing the human race. This is expertly described within the storyline by Robert Johnson. With the worldwide population increasing beyond comprehension Dr Carl Sims of the CDC finds himself at the centre of a plot to dramatically reduce the planet's populace, to allow it to recover from the decades of over exploitation and pollution. Carl's father had originally highlighted the problem by establishing population clocks in major cities but to date no one had really taken any notice. Will this plot succeed and how will it shape the future of the world.

The author has written an exciting thriller, which is for most of the time fast moving and entertaining, albeit with some dire visions of what could happen.
