    " Not sure if I have short changed the rating...kind of sticks with you in a crazy way... "

    " Earth is overcrowded, so what do you do? Read this sf/horror and the solution will make you look around at the world we have. We're in the future now (since the book was published) and it hasn't been kind to the book but it is still a fascinating read. "

    " A bleak look at an overpopulated future. The solution they find is bizarre to say the least. Well written, but not my kind of sci-fi. "

    " good mixed with some sketchy parts. "

    " Listened to an audio version of this work by Bloch. Its a rather interesting 'what if' read, causing one to ponder the current state of population increase and its eventualities..... The books focus? well exactly whats its title states 'This Crowded Earth'..... "
