Review: ORA:CLE

ORA:CLE ORA:CLE by Kevin O'Donnell Jr.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Grabbed this off a discount rack decades ago - before I'd heard of the company by the same name. Great pulp sci-fi, a world dominated by aliens, cities completely re-forested to battle the high C02 levels and global warming, citizens that never leave their apartment, having everything delivered from online orders through their 'mass transciever'; public and job meetings taking place in virtual environments where everyone is working remote. Very prescient of today's Skype, Internet shopping and climate change. But, with a twist! The protagonist finds a problem in the shared story everyone has agreed, to, and with that information, his life is at risk. Does he dare act on this new information that could literally kill half the population, but free them from alien domination?
