"EnvironMentality gives ecocriticism a new angle by focusing on the properties and effectiveness of narrative and its ethical implications in an endangered natural environment. It is a deeply analytical, thought-provoking study that sees promise in the potentials of reading." - Christa Grewe-Volpp, Mannheim, in Anglistik: International Journal of English Studies, vol. 26.1 2015, pp. 185-187
