“The Dialogue With Nature, by Dr. John-Okoria Ibhakewanlan SJ, is an environmentalist parable written in the format of a Socratic dialogue. Shelli, a wealthy socialite in the Niger-Delta, first encounters a downed tree, then a fish, and finally viruses, arguing with each in turn about human dominion over nature. Eventually she concludes that her (and humanity’s) worldview is deeply flawed.” — Blueink Review, October 2016.
