Opens As Adam steps outside the cold strikes him like a physical thing the shock still startling after all these weeksI have to confess I had never heard of the book CLADE or its author James Bradly until it was discussed on the Sunday Book club on ABC recently CLADE is an unusual book in that it looks the scenario of the possible effects of climate change and how it impacts on the world through the eyes of three generations of one family the Leith family and some characters who come into contact with them Bradley s scenario is frightingly plausibleStarting around 2016 the story moves through in a series of 10 narratives or chapters that are not linked in any real way except that a member of the family appears in it There can be years between chapters before Bradley decides to pop back into the story and give the reader a snapshot of where the family and the world is at nowCLADE opens with Dr Adam Leith and his artist wife Ellie trying to conceive a child he is a scientist and is down in the Antarctica and she is in Sydney waiting to hear if this time the IVF process has been successful He hears the ice beneath him creaking and groaning and understands this is the ice loosening up as the earth warms up He worries about whether they should bring a child into the world And the book continues each chapter jumping through history and gives a snapshot of what the family is doing against the background of a rapidly escalating global meltdown The Earth is dying Changing weather patterns result in hurricanes hitting Europe and Monsoons failing Fish and birds start dying massive floods kill thousands and a flu like virus kills millions The temperatures steadily rise civil unrest increases and world economies fall Yet the day to day activity of the characters remain the same they just get on with living as the earth throws yet another challenge at them The reader gets to see snapshots of events through Adam and Ellie their daughter their grandson a Chinese teenager Adam sort of adopts and a refugee from Bangladesh that Ellie connects with This makes the story very personal as the reader experiences the events as they affect the characters making it all very very believable On the whole I liked the way the story progressed as a series of snapshots as the world deteriorated I have to confess that sometimes it took me a while to get the connection to the family and it left me slightly adrift until I did but as soon as I clicked I was off again Was left a bit bewildered over the Sim section and still not sure I have fully got that part Overall though despite the steady decline in the conditions of the earth there is hope at the end of CLADE it s a bit out there but why not nothing else was working to stop the planet s deterioration In the end CLADE is not all doom and gloom although there is a lot of it it is a story about how the human race is determined to look for solutions adapt and fight to live it is life but not as we know it
