    Not bad...

    But not that great either. The storyline kept me captivated, I pushed through some difficult parts just to see how it ended. Twice during the 511 page book I thought about putting it down and starting another, it was almost TOO detailed during the tsunami. I know the author wants the reader to feel that they are experiencing this horrendous disaster along w/ the characters but at the same time I felt that the wave had more personality than the characters. I wanted to hear more from Jill and Pendra, but instead I heard way too much from Nell who's crotch was on fire during the entire story. Being a woman I ached for this girl, but really...what does John Shirley know about an infection such as that? It kind of weirded me out a little. He should have picked a different type of injury for poor Nell. Russ was too weak, until the very end where it counted but I would've liked to see some more depth to his story as well. I wanted to see him go after Pendra that first night she was kidnapped. But I dont think John Shirley has read too many romances...LOL. Overall, I think the book could have added another 500 pgs if it meant more character development. I was also expecting a much more apocalyptic story and it turned out to be centered on this one tiny town. There was no detail giving to the "clusterquakes" and the problem of global warming on a world-wide level. It was mentioned, but not discussed.
