    1. I picked up The Aviator not knowing what to expect, other than the theme of 'climate change'. What I got was a very pleasant surprise.In this warm-hearted and very easy to read novel, we follow the adventures of an airship captain, the supersmart AI which guides said airship, and the lovely lass the captain meets.They fly all over the world, and Gareth (the author) uses this to examine ideas about what the impacts of unchecked climate change could be on our societies, environment and economies.

    6. Easy read. Surprisingly upbeat and adventurous tone, almost a tourist's tale. For the protagonist lots of good wine and cheese and sex in exotic circumstances.
