The author investigates the before and after through a group of believable characters who have the foresight to think things through and the strength and resources to carry them out. Icefall reads well and again as with the authors other books, ensured that I devoured it in record speed. There are elements of romance fiction to be found throughout but don't be fooled, the subjects are carefully thought out and the possibility that the scenario could actually happen in our lifetimes remains real. The truth is that our current trajectory is not sustainable and I thought that the book investigated this subject in a very realistic way. The social repercussions are also a focus and I found that this was also treated with a fair hand. A great book to take on holiday and one that might just help you buy that property in the hills and start your sustainable life before its too late!!
Wooden Characters that no one could relate to and quite frankly only finished it because it was so long that it put me to sleep
Half the book is set in the BEFORE period whilst the remainder is set AFTER the event. I would recommend this book to anybody looking for a good light read.
The writer brings brings to life the possibility of a future completely transformed by natural disaster and the result is a compelling and slightly unnerving read, especially if you live in Sydney where the book is set.
Excellent read - just make sure you have a enough time to complete the whole book as its hard to put down once you start.
Scientists have been warning us for years that the Ross Ice Shelf in the Antarctic is likely to fall into the sea, creating a 15 metre tsunami and permanently raising sea levels to engulf all coastal cities. Some of us believe them, some of us don't, but we do nothing. In ICEFALL, it all happens. This is an exciting human drama and a compulsive read.
