Serve Your Country, Conserve Your Water, Observe Your Neighbor

This is the slogan of the Sustainability Unit and of a country gone eco-hysterical. After nearly twelve months without rain and the hinges of the world barely still oiled, Thomas and his younger brother, Dustin, set out across a drought-ridden landscape in search of answers. What they discover along the way will change their lives, and their country, forever.

The Cloud Seeders weaves humor and heartache, as well as poetry and science, into a unique novel that defies categorization.
After twelve months without rain, the world is barely surviving. Eighteen year old Thomas is forced by circumstances and the loss of his to shoulder a huge amount of responsibility. He struggles to fend for his little brother Dustin and do the right thing for the girl he loves.Due to the huge lack of water the police are roaming for streets looking for people who are using water illegally
due to its very low levels. People no longer look to the skies for rain. Thomas and Dustin are patrolling the neighborhood for anyone using water illegally as they will get water for turning them in. They set out across a drought landscape in hoping to find their parents and in search for answers.

I loved this new genre called Dystopia and how the author is so detailed in exploring this new and fascinating post-apocalyptic genre. I really enjoyed the relationship between the brothers as it was written so beautifully and how they interacted with each other, especially through tense situations. I liked how the political issues in the story and how they weren’t thrown at the readers as they are in a lot of other pre and post-apocalyptic/dystopian books. The author placed the characters beyond the issues while ignoring all the political ramblings that can happen in this type of book.

Will Thomas and Dustin ever find their parents? Will they find the answers to their questions? Most importantly how will the boys survive this new world together? I recommend The Cloud Seeders to anyone who enjoys this new type of interesting and well written genre!
