Make Room! Make Room!
1966, 1973, Doubleday, New York
This is the book the movie Soylent Green is based on. It is the tale of an over-populated world at the turn of the millennium.
I thought this was brilliant. I adored the movie Soylent Green, and when I heard that the main premise of the movie didn't come from the book (y'all know what I'm talking about), I was a bit worried that I wouldn't enjoy the book. But I did! The writing style is beautiful for a little science fiction novel, and there is so much humanity in this book. I'm just glad it wasn't prophetic.
