About The Polar Bear Catastrophe That Never Happened (2019):
A full-length review by Larry Kummar (21 March 2019) is summarized this way:
This is a fascinating book about science, about the making of public policy, about climate change, and above all – about nature. They all intersect in the debate about the future of polar bears.

A fellow blogger:
I want you to know that I have now read the whole thing! And it was a fabulous (and super-scary) read – particularly for one who is not inclined to select “blood and gore” as choice reading material.
A sensitive colleague, after reading Chapter 1 preview:
Oh my GOD. I can’t read anymore! And I don’t want to remember what I just read either. Very effective writing.
Reader just getting into the book:
I had my first polar bear nightmare – left the [bedroom] door open for the cats and guess who arrived?
The bear from your cover – actually sat up in bed and screamed!
A colleague who is a respected ecologist/evolutionary biologist (Christmas Day 2015):
My dear Susan, your book “Eaten” is EXCELLENT! I never dreamt that you had such a gift as a spellbinding novelist. I could not put that book down, and read it in two sittings. No Agatha Christie ever tied me down that long. And your thesis is – alas – probable. I am in awe and admiration!
I kid you not, that novel of yours was a wonderful surprise. Not every good story teller is good a novelist, and you are both. Your characters were real and the suspense was great. Bravo.

Thought-provoking, and possibly a real service to polar bear conservation
