    The Perfect Storm was boring!

    I thought The Perfect Strom was extremely boring. The book went into dull scientific detail about everything. I would have enjoyed the novel if the author elaborated more on the love story and more personal aspects of the plot. If you love knots, millimeters, and weather conditions...this is the book for you. If not be prepaired to fall asleep

    Wildy Overrated !

    I suppose we all love a true 'disaster' story every now and then, and while this one could have been great, it falls kind of flat. I truly believe the author's handsome good looks and endless promotions had a LOT to do with it's bestseller status. The narration of this book is so choppy and juvenile, it really ruins and diminishes the entire story. It just wasn't told in any kind of 'interesting' format. There was a few brief chapters that worked, way too brief, and they just didn't connect to the majority of the book. It's like 4 or 5 different authors were writing it and tripping all over each other. Take away the handsome face on the back cover and what do you have ? A very uneven book that makes a tragedy seem boring.
