    i'm not sure why so many people found this depressing it ain't no jude the obscure it's actually the opposite of depressing i think the things people are saying are depressing are things that the book discusses that are actually happening like animal species going extinct and war and overpopulation maybe the people that think it is depressing are themselves involved in isolationist cults that are unaware of their own surroundings it's a pretty interesting read
