Ecotopia by Ernest Cellenback is a great book. Some things that I really like about this book are that the author is writing through another person about the first visit through Ecotopia. Another thing that i like about this book is the funny ways they describe Ecotopia and how crazy the ideas in Ecotopia were. Life in Portland sounds similar to Ecotopia in various ways, like the small, inner city gardens, the trains that look like planes, and the fights on public trains that mirror what Portlanders see on the Maxx.

In our class we read the beginning part of Ecotopia. The beginning was about Ecotopia emerging, and being put together.

William Weston is a American Citizen who enters Ecotopia to learn enough information about it, to write a review about it. William has a lot of sarcastic and obnoxious views about Ecotopia. What Ernest Callenbach is trying to show you with him. Is that this is what Americans think about this new country. In reality America is worst then Ecotopia.The Ecotopeans people are very nice, and non violent. The                         Ecotopeans  are very normal people, but the Narrator William. Makes them seem as weirder…
