    The book Make Room! Make Room! is the first Harry Harrison book I’ve read. It’s been fascinating to see how he described the huge problems the world would have because of overpopulation. He got some of the figures wrong, but I’m impressed that he was writing about this subject in 1966. The story goes smoothly and the characters are very interesting. It makes me wonder how I’d survive in such a hellish world. The sad part is that we humans have been so slow in dealing with our overconsumption of the planet’s resources. I’m getting up there in years and I can only hope that things start improving before I leave this precious planet.
