The only things I didn't like were the main character's polygamous relationship (not really anything wrong with the book; just a personal dislike of mine) and the idea that the monster has been involved with many mass extinctions throughout Earth's history. Without giving too much away, its motivation makes sense for the Precambrian oxygenation event and the current mass extinction, but makes a lot less sense when applied to the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction and many others.
Overall, I would recommend this book to fans of Lovecraft-influenced works, disaster stories and monster stories in general. Oddly specific though this may be, I'd also recommend it to fans of the anime Blue Gender, as there are definite thematic similarities.
Abraham Wright's life is...complicated. Father of two 8-year-old boys who were born two months apart (wait, how does that math work?), he is well versed on a variety of topics, though an expert in none. "He knows a lot about a lot." At the story's outset he is a journalist for a science magazine following a team of volcanologists in Iceland. When an injury to one of the party causes all Hell to break lose, nearly literally, his journey to save the human race from extinction begins. The trials he endures teach him who he really is, as a man, a father, a husband, and a, well, it's complicated.
Trust me people, what happens in this story will defy your predictions. Robinson's creativity is on full display as his most unique character to date endures an odyssey to save more than just the world.
