Superb dialogue, vivid imagination and wry humour . . . The Last Gasp is a landmark in the field of eco-fiction
This terrifying vision of the possible near future convincingly shows how drastically things could change in a single generation. A riveting ecological thriller that will have you sighing with relief that it all isn't true - yet
Trevor Hoyle has combined Dr Strangelove and Raiders of the Lost Ark and come up with a formula that works like a poisoned charm
The author's deftness with character, plot and the conventions of the thriller form is vital to a book of this length and complexity. It maintains narrative momentum and encourages the reader to get to grips with the science behind the story
If someone had told me I'd find a 722 page novel about climate change and pollution as engrossing as a James Bond novel, I'd have thought they were mad. However Trevor Hoyle's The Last Gasp does just that
The Last Gasp by Trevor Hoyle is my risk analysis disaster science fiction book standard of excellence . . . Bizarre and intriguing events, catastrophic consequences, and solutions . . . Engaging.
The book is epic . . . At 700 pages it's a mighty tome - and the science, may leave the reader, also gasping for breath.
A prophet of ecological apocalypse and chronicler of imminent chaos . . . an enormously entertaining book
The Last Gasp is an immersive apocalyptic science fiction horror thriller that is next to impossible to put down
Climate thrillers, let alone good ones, are few and far between ... That's why The Last Gasp is a minor revelation
