I ended up still liking the story in Supercell better, but Eyewall truly had its moments as well.
Being a weather fanatic, I love the study of severe weather and if it weren't for the fact that tornado's would mess up my hair, I'd probably chase one or two. Hurricanes are more predictable. Thank God.
Eyewall had good character development and like with Supercell, this was also a page turner for me. Read this in one evening. I admit to skipping several pages when Bernie and Arlen spotted a baby clinging to its mother on a fallen tree during Hurricane Janet.
When it got to the part where the two men get a hold of "Stormy" and try to get him back to the safety of the plane and even though I pretty much figured the kid would make it, I just couldn't read those few pages. I fast-forwarded to the part where the baby was absolutely safe inside. My heart just couldn't take it.
It certainly did the job of keeping the reader on the edge of their seats/beds/chairs and anywhere else one tends to read a book.
While it's suspenseful for most, a true severe weather enthusiast will appreciate the amount of technical information given because you end up learning more about natures storm systems just by reading the story.
As for the editing, this book was a hell-of-a lot cleaner than Supercell was. There were only three instances where there were missing words out of sentences, but that was about it.
As far as suspense goes, both books did their job, but I actually thought this one had just a smidge more because of the wee little tot in peril. I HATE kids and animals suffering even for the sake of fiction (You just HAD to have a lab doggie paddling through the murky bacteria ridden surge water without any hope in sight, didn't you?) Poor puppy...Sigh
Good book. Really enjoyed it.
This is a good writer. If Supercell is ever re-edited, I will go back in and edit my review for that book and raise it from two to five stars.
The Kindle version was disappointing in that there were unfinished sentences missing when you. turned the page In too many places. Sometimes it was just a word you could figure out; other times it was the end of a sentence.
If you want to know,and I think you need to know, what it is like to experience a hurricane in all its monstrous glory, then ''Eyewall" is a must. Hats off to you, Buzz!
I would suggest it to anyone who likes a lot of action, this book certainly had it in spades. I don't give 5 stars very often, but this one deserves that and more.
