First thing Forget about the movie Soylent Green which was based on Harry Harrison s novel about overpopulation Make Room Make Room There is no Charleston Heston screaming Soylent Green is people and nothing about cannibalism What we have instead is a very effective and disuieting look at a future where overpopulation is rampant and food and water sources are depleting While he centers his story around a New York detective and a accidental murder Harrison is interested in depicting his character s personal responsse to their environment Sol beautifully played by Edward G Robinson in the movie and the best thing about the film is most memorable with his ability to remember the past and his examination of where they went wrong His solilouy on birth control still rings true today Yet all the novel s protagonists are nicely developed Considering the topic this is actually a fairly subtle novel and one of the best novels by veteran Sci fi writer Harrison Highly recommended with a strong four stars

Here is a 1966 novel about 1999 which is good honest miserable fun The main guy who is a cop gets to be really happy for about two pages and after that it s back to worrying about absolutely everything It s New York City and the population has skyrocketed to 35 million The whole damn country has kind of collapsed There are no private cars Tobacco is a thing of the past There are meateasies This is because you can get your meat but you have to know where But pretty much everything is now scarce because Americans in the 30 years between 1966 and 1999 ate everything and used up everything whilst all having ten kids who then had another ten kids each it seemsYou wouldn t want to live in this version of New York City You wouldn t want to even visit it for ten minutesCHUNKThis humble word is Harry Harrison s absolute favourite No idea why If you had a shot of vodka each time he uses the word CHUNK you d be dead of severe alcoholic poisoning before page 90 My own favourite word is GALLIMAUFRY but you don t see me shoehorning it into every review willynilly Willynilly is another of my favourite wordsBILLY NO MATES A THEORYMy latest literary insight is that in most novels especially thrillerish ones the protagonist has no friends Check the last three novels you read I think this is because it would make the story too complicated and annoying for the author would get in the way of the action Make Room Make Room s two main characters begin with one sort of friend for him and none for her Novelists this is very unrealistic People have friends Even I have friends Our hero s friend is nothing than a SOCK PUPPET so that Harry Harrison can explain his ideas of how overpopulation killed the USA and will kill the whole human race unless we embrace birth control The message of this novel couldn t be clearer if Harry Harrison personally came round to your house and nailed it to your forehead With another copy to be cellotaped to your bedroom mirrorHARRY ADMITS I GOT IT WRONGIn a one page afterword written in 2008 at the age of 83 HH says How right were my predictions Pretty bad in most of the general details but then he does say there s too many damn people and the developed world is soaking up all the planet s resources Which we know He predicted the population of NYC would increase from 8 million in 1966 to 35 million in 1999 which is RIDICULOUS But there is now a city Chonging which Wiki tells me has reached 30 million And others aren t far behind Shanghai 24m Delhi 21m The biggest population growth is in the developing world and this tells us that HH didn t understand the part which says that there is a correlation between affluence and family size So the families of western people shrank over the 20th century I can see this in my own family grandparents generation 9 or 10 children parents generation two or three my own generation one or two or NONEI LIKED ITEven though it s a bit of a miseryfest it zips along and HH has a real relish for all the horrible detailsA CHUNKy three stars from me
