‘A future elegy for the joys of nature’s freely-given riches’

Lifeform Three is a sustained engagement with and immersion in the natural world (in this case, the English countryside), made all the more poignant by the reader gradually realising it is likely the last unspoiled example left, and visited as a tourist attraction by the deprived wider world on that basis. As such, Lifeform Three stands in the tradition of Huxley’s Brave New World as a ‘future elegy’ for the joys of Nature’s freely-given riches, which our own present day risks losing forever.’
