The Sun is about to go Nova. Earth and Moon have ceased their axial rotation and present one face continuously to the sun. The bright side of Earth is covered with carnivorous forest. This is the Age of vegetables. Gren and his lady - not to mention the tummybelly men - journey to the even more terrifying Dark side. One of Aldiss' most famous and long-enduring novels, fast moving, packed with brilliant imagery.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Failed potential Adored the setting; a rich, lush, captivating world. Especially loved the imagery of earth and moon hung with web. However, I wish someone else, with a greater grasp on description, dialogue, and character, had written the story. There's a lot of potential here that Aldiss doesn't live up to. Lack of plot doesn't bother me - some of my favourite books involve utterly flat characters moving through gorgeously wrought set pieces - but this book, the use of language in particular, just utterly bored me.
