The title of this book is meant to show that the planet we now inhabit has been so fundamentally changed by global warming that it no longer exists. Instead, a new planet, Eaarth—with more methane in the oceans, higher sea levels, and more violent storms—has supplanted it. Narrator Oliver Wyman’s clear voice sounds very earnest throughout the book. He goes beyond just reading the words and seems as if he actually believes them, which makes for a convincing performance. Wyman should have used his own voice throughout the text, though. His accents for British scientists and African statesmen do not just fall short—they detract from the book’s overall message.
