Publisher's Summary

In a strange future, the Earth has stopped rotating, and the stationary world is now split between perpetual day and unending night. The few remaining humans are led by the elders who, facing the end of their time, hand the leadership to a young girl, Toy. The group’s manchild Gren wants to be his own leader, however, and will tear apart the group in his search for a new Eden.

Superb extrapolationist SF

The exotic and dangerous world described is full of wonder. The fate of humans in the far future as they competes with vegetation proliforating under an expanding sun is thrilling. With continuous invention the novel follows a pair of forest people through unimaginable adventures. Towards the end as many questions as answers are posed. Not least being the nature of being human. Philosophy and adventure.

Middling amble through a distant earth

Wanting to catch up on a legend, now he's sadly passed, I'm sorry to say that I didn't love this book. It's well regarded, and the detailed description of a distant earth covered in evolved plants is interesting. But the characters are hard to relate to, even the "comic relief" tummy-belly people, the journey is directionless, and the protagonist morel mushroom (yes) is just a jerk.
