LoveReading View on Hothouse

A future Earth has been overrun by vegetation and a a giant tree now connects the planet to the Moon, while the sun is about to go nova. A wildly exuberant tale of survival and thrilling adventures as the remains of humanity battle the mutated animal kingdom and the overbearing heat in search of desperate answers.

Maxim Jakubowski

Hothouse Synopsis

The Sun is about to go Nova. Earth and Moon have ceased their axial rotation and present one face continuously to the sun. The bright side of Earth is covered with carnivorous forest. This is the Age of vegetables. Gren and his lady - not to mention the tummybelly men - journey to the even more terrifying Dark side. One of Aldiss' most famous and long-enduring novels, it is fast moving, packed with brilliant imagery.
