IF ONLY THEY KNEW by Alex McCarthy is a realistic view of the way we are headed. It
is a story of greed. It tells of the disasters in our environment and the fact
that the majority of it is caused by us. Yes, us. Humans. We are a greedy bunch.
When the disasters happen the world comes tumbling down and simple necessities
become very valuable. It's a story of two people and their relationship. How
they are put to the test between necessities and their
The author ALEX McCARTHY, does a good job of making this book, IF ONLY THEY KNEW, a
rather dark sided important read. It makes us stop and think about what dangers
the human race is bringing upon life. The story goes on about friendships, the
ruination of life, and what our responsibilities may be. We don't stop and
think, we just do. There needs to be more consideration of our environment and
that includes people.
The book moves a little slow in places and it does need some editing. There are
spelling and grammar errors, but taking just the storyline, it is a thought
provoking tale. It makes you wonder if Global warming is actually taking over.
We have two ways, as the book shows, that can be taken. Naturally or man-made.
You wonder where YOUR responsibility lies. The book has a rather different
ending that what you would expect. No, I'm not going to tell, so go find
yourself a comfy, quiet place to read and reflect.
I'd give the book 2 stars, it had potential but it didn't really appeal to me.
