An Eco-Thriller Is A Fact-Based Environmental Novel About An Ecological Disaster
An eco-thriller is a fact-based environmental novel about an impending ecological disaster that must be stopped by the main character within a few days. Eco-thrillers describe the scientific basis for their plots in an entertaining way, enriching the reader's capability to understand modern environmental issues and encouraging the reader to learn more about the solutions to today's problems. The manipulation of nature may seem like a man against nature theme in eco-thrillers, but the real culprit is man against man as the antagonists attempt to rearrange the natural balance of nature and the protagonists struggle to stop them. A recurring theme is what it really means to have dominion over the environment--caring for it, rather than dominating it.
