Read the story now
We enjoyed your story, which had a very good plot, and some interesting characters. Nice to read something that isn't a basic romance for a change. The philosophy was engaging, and challenging too.
The novel is generally very well written, and we can only make a few minor comments about things to improve it.
In your first chapters particularly, you have a tendency to 'tell' rather than 'show.' Don't tell us what has happened up to now, make us experience it as your character moves through the scenery. For example, let her look at a graph, exclaiming at the sudden raise in temperate to an even more dangerous level, or let her interact directly with a robot who is doing something important, so that we can experience what this future world is like, rather than just reading about what has already happened. As the story progresses you have more show and less tell which is great This is often a problem at the start of a book when writers feel like they have to share everything all at once. The idea is to slowly let the reader learn more and more of the problems and background as you move through the chapters, by experiencing them.
Don't give them everything at once.
A second issue is the number of times you use a verb to explain that someone is speaking. Thankfully most of these were 'said' but even that can become very repetitive. It is not always necessary to indicate that someone is speaking with the 'said or alternative' verb. If there are only two people, it is obvious that each one is likely to speak in turn so just leave it out.
Alternatively, where there are more than two people, you could use an alternative approach instead of a speaking verb.
'May I bring you a drink of some kind?,.' The waiter, who had glided silently up behind us, now stood slightly bowed, ready to receive our order.
I could have screamed at this interruption. It was hard enough trying to find the right words for what I meant. 'No, not now.'
He nodded and moved away clearly sensing the atmosphere between us.
We hope these are helpful comments, and wish you all the best for your future writing career.
