'The Beautiful Ones captures the human predicament through the
overpopulation lens with fearless clarity. O.M. Faure weaves the
interconnections of overconsumption by the wealthy, environmental
degradation, racism, and poverty, into a thriller that moves from
today to 2081 and lays clearly at the readers' feet a challenge for
all of us to change current behaviors now.'
Paul Ehrlich, author of The Population Bomb and Bing Professor of Population Studies at Stanford University'A tremendously ambitious, thought-provoking and worthwhile project. O. M. Faure has conjured up a colourful cast of characters caught up in an entertaining story in which action is informed by important ideas about our global past, present and future. An impressive achievement!' Sue Belfrage, author of Down to the River and Up to the Trees
'The Beautiful Ones is a story that people need to read and a discussion that needs to happen in society. The characters feel like they're alive. The book made me laugh out loud a lot... and it also made me tear up. I would keep the clapping going for a great story with a compelling idea and a gripping narrative.' Tony King, author of Fishing for Music and Australian Songwriter of the Year 2009
'Captivating, unsettling, bold. O. M. Faure's The Beautiful Ones isn't afraid to hit you hard with the "first they came for them and now they're coming for you". With such authenticity and heart, this trilogy will touch your life and spark many conversations.' Isabelle Felix, author of Deafinitely
'In The Beautiful Ones, O.M. Faure offers us a chilling glance into a world not so very far from our own, and paints a compelling picture of a dystopian future that may be closer than we think.'
Clare Kane, author of Dragons in Shallow Waters.
