The Future is Bad, Always Bad

Though the future seems to always be bad, The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer is a good book about a bad future. I'd looked forward to reading it for some time, and though I would have changed the last page or so, myself, I was not disappointed. Scorpion reminded me of Holes by Louis Sachar--a well-written adventure without a lot of pretension.
