    1. In post Peak Oil Vancouver, Canada, the future is not bright The end of the Petroleum Age means the luxuries we ve come to enjoy automobiles, computers, and e readers have been left in the distant past Suburban communities like Surrey have been largely abandoned, and Vancouver itself is becoming a human wasteland of joblessness and homelessness This is the stage set for author Jay Allan Storey s new dystopian novel, Eldorado.The novel s protagonist, Richard Hampton, is one of the few Vancouver r [...]


    2. Eldorado is an intense futuristic story where energy and food are scarce and danger lurks around every corner For most people staying alive is an everyday struggle, but Richard Hampton lives a life which is considered luxurious He has a job with the local college, a home with running water, electricity, and a garden which provides food He seems to take his fortunate circumstances for granted and is oblivious to the hardships so many must endure That is until his kid brother ends up missing Myste [...]


    3. Eldorado is about the what COULD happen if we don t change the course we are on In this version of the future, resources and energy are limited and climate change has affected us in a pretty bad way The main character, Richard, leads a fairly normal life though, until his younger brother Danny goes missing Richard then goes on a quest to find him, and that s when the story gets really interesting I liked the theme AND the plot of this book, and the vivid depiction of what could be if we re not c [...]


    4. I loved this book Richard Hampton and his little brother Danny are alone in an uncertain world of the future When Danny comes up missing the reader is taken on an amazing adventure, Because fuel is almost non existent in this future, people would do about anything to get even a few drops Danny knows something about the fuel because of his dog Zonk and that s why he is in trouble, As Richard looks for Danny he discovers Danny s secret and is doing all he can to find his brother before it is too l [...]


    5. Good book Well written I saw a few typos, but not enough to distract from the story Plot was excellent and kept my interest, and the characters were fun Great read.


    6. GoodWell written Teocawki the end of civilization as we know it Interesting and slightly different than the usual Teotwawki Fun read It has a dog and I like dogs and babies


    7. The actual story behind Eldorado is engrossing and entertaining The adventure, tension, character development and dialogue are all very good I enjoyed reading this story however, the setting a futuristic time where the oil is gone and folks are struggling to get by doesn t work as well for me as if this story were in another setting The future here doesn t seem like a future, but of a present, and I had some issues with the concepts played out in the story.But I did really enjoy the character i [...]


    8. Treasure hunt in the future Eldorado takes place in the future when fossil fuels have almost disappeared and only the government and very rich are able to get supplies of oil and gasoline Also climate change has affected the ability to produce hydroelectric power.Richard Hampton, a gardening teacher at East Vancouver Community College in British Columbia, is guardian to his younger brother, Danny This post apocalyptic tale centers on Richard trying to find Danny after he disappears, running afou [...]


    9. Eldorado, by Jay Allen Storey, is a well written dystopian novel that takes place in a future that is most likely only a few generations away, which is truly scary.Close your eyes and imagine a life in which most of the fossil fuels are gone, and the small amount that is left is priced so out of the average person s budget that it may as well not exist Imagine how life would be No longer will we be able to just run down to the supermarket and buy our food Most likely we will either grow it ourse [...]


    10. There are things about this book I liked, and some that I didn t like I m a fan of dystopian stories, so the setting in the not too distant future works well for me In a future where the oil has fun out, I could easily see it playing out as Mr Storey describes Most of the characters were set up nicely as well, from Professor Richard right down to Zonk, the dog The city of Vancouver and it s surrounding areas is a great place to set the story There were a few things that really didn t work for me [...]


    11. This is a dystopian novel that is based on a real issue that we face today on a much smaller scale We need oil and fuel prices to go down, and I hear people complain about it almost every day I truly hope that it does not get as bad as this author wrote it will It was interesting that there are different modes of transportation and it seems that the characters go backwards with technology There are bikes than cars, and farming is completely different then I think of it today I have a greenhouse [...]


    12. This was a really imaginative story I enjoyed reading it the characters are all well developed Jay Allan Storey has a way of describing action and scenery that is believable and easy to see I found a few parts to be on the edge of believable, as some other reviewers have mentioned the instant love by a couple of characters the number of times some of these people got kidnapped captured seems they would have learned their lesson it starts out with the easy life in the city and at the college, and [...]


    13. This is a book to keep you on the edge of your seat Just as the two main characters, Richard who is searching for his missing brother Danny, seem to have weathered the latest crisis yet another one appears It matters because, like all the characters, they are well drawn and you desperately want them to succeed The future world that Jay portrays is bleak but somehow totally believable.My only criticism is that, being a Brit who has never been to that part of Canada, I would have liked descriptio [...]


    14. A fine readAfter the collapse of the fuel industry, society produces gangs, homeless by the thousands, and insatiable greed I love that this is a stand alone sort of post apocalyptic story Maybe one day we will find out what else Zonk can sniff out, and how the new community fares.


    15. Exciting ReadGreat story in a future without gas Could see this happening just as the author described it Very believable Characters were cool also I ll be reading Storeys next novel when it comes out.
