While this book predicts dire consequences and does weave a story throughout about a developing storm and its aftermath, the writing is very disappointing, and almost amateurish. Difficult to follow, the reader will quickly tire of constant questioning of previously stated 'facts', which have no researchable documentation. It is unbelievable that no bibliography is included and that there is no footnotes to refer to them. This is a let down of a book that fails to gather together what is being presented in a cohesive and understandable text. The interwoven story of an actual storm, while fictional, should have been expanded and should have been 'the book'.

    Don't let the facts scare you away

    An interesting book, and thought-provoking premise...but when the author-experts starts telling me the 'rain falls through the bitter cold air and turns into snow...' or the 'extreme cold stratospheric air descends to the surface without warming', we've lost touch with some pretty fundamental laws of meteorology. On the plus side, some real (and documented) research has lately proposed that major climate shifts CAN happen quickly. So, stock up on bread and milk and settle in for an interesting story!

    Global Superstorm: Is it an oroginal story?

    In 1993, Berkley Press published POLAR DAY 9 by Kyle Donner. It is the story of a sudden climate change and the resulting deep freeze. Scenes like the the evacuation of millions, the closing of the Mexican borders to American refugees, birds and animals announcing the sudden change...are all there in POLAR DAY 9.
