One of the reasons I really like his work is you can tell how much research he does. I’m not sure how difficult that is for him with his background. I felt like I was reading a real life event. His main character has to face one of the biggest challenges of his life. Dr. Elwood is a geologist who keeps having nightmares about a quake that devastates the northwest coast. The more he has the dreams the more he believes the quake will actually happen. The challenge he faces is whether he should risk his career to go public with what he ‘believes’ will happen or if he should keep quiet to protect his career. If he is wrong it would be career over. If he doesn’t tell anyone and his dreams come true then he lost the opportunity to save lives. I wondered if meteorologists and geologists every actually go through this. I found it interesting that the “Thunderbird and Whale” reference was also mentioned in the articles my students read. This is such a well-written book I could see it as a movie. I want a book like this that will keep me reading from cover to cover. I enjoy books that are so realistic I wonder how much truth there is to them. I definitely recommend you read this book and any of his other books. You won’t be sorry you checked out this author.
I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.
It took more than a quarter of the book to really get into it. I found that by 30% of the way in, I was bored and almost stopped reading.
I understand that you have to set up the scene and the different people, realizing that they would all be involved together in some way after the earthquake and tsunami, but to not have anything gripping at all until you're more than halfway through makes me lose interest.
Once things really got started, then it got a lot better and what I'm used to from this author.
Just an ok story for me.
