CATEGORY 7 is an enjoyable weather-based thriller, although it took me awhile to get into the story, due to all of the unfamiliar terms. Once I got through it, though, I found myself immersed in the story.

The basics: a meglomaniac decides to take revenge on the President by using his creation, the ability to control the weather, to send a massive Category 7 hurricane towards New York City. Panic and devastation ensue, and it's up to a small-town weather reporter and a CIA operative to stop both the hurricane and the bad guy.

Like I said, this really is an entertaining and enjoyable thriller, and once you learn the weather-related jargon, you'll be in for a really good story.

I loved the story as it has screenplay and movie written all over it. The poetry is great, the characters are real, and the whole book is just as compelling as anything out there. Weather manipulation, both private and governmental, flying tv news trucks, and a mad man billionaire, makes for a great summer beach read!! Can't wait for the movie and book #2!!

I couldn't put this one down. Living in Florida, I've seen the wrath of hurricanes up close and personal, and this novel had me on the edge of my seat. A diabolical billionare who is bent on destroying his political adversaries by destroying the eastern seaboard with a monstrous hurricane -what a concept! I'd never considered weather manipulation before, but now I'm wondering... The characters are smart, sophistocated and complex. What a great author team! It's so rare and refreshing to read a book that challenges one's vocabulary!

Combine government conspiracy, a mad scientist and brilliant meteoroligists saving the day and you have the recipe for a great novel. I found the story to be riveting. Details painted a vivid picture in my mind as I read the novel. While the number of characters in the beginning seemed overwhelming, each one played their part to bring about a brilliant conclusion. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a great suspense, mystery, save the world type novels.

Its a good idea for a book, but it really did not meet my expecations. I did not get all the crazy subplots.

I read this book to support Bill, who happens to be my local weather guy back home. I have yet to figure out where Jake and Kate came from, elle, etc, etc. It's too many characters to keep up with. It was a very slow read, and took up till about pge 200 to finally get interesting. I forced myself to finish it.

If you¿re looking for a high octane thriller, this isn¿t for you but what category 7 does offer is an entertaining answer to a ¿what if¿ no one ever really wants to have to face. Category 7 may be best summed up by the lesson in the classic tale the tortoise and the hare-- slow and steady wins the race. This novel builds momentum like a storm cloud rolling in-- deliberate and methodical. By the time, the hurricane finally hits, the reader is invested in figuring out how Kate and Jake will survive the heart pump ride through the worst case scenario. As a professional journalist, I know Kate and Jake. The characters are realistic depictions offer a behind the scene glimpse into the mundane, often dry world of television. The ending leaves open the possibility for a sequel to find out what happens to several key characters. It¿s a new tale that I look forward to reading.

Granted this is Bill's first novel to be written, but I found it very drawn out and very little excitement. I was waiting and waiting for the Categoy 7 hurricane to hit NYC and read all the descriptive damage, but there was hardly any. Seemed very repititious with the story and so political.

I bought this book not based on the writer, but on the title, the book illustrations and the cover story. VERY, VERY, VERY DISAPPOINTING. Really glad I only paid $5.98 plus tax

This book was pretty lame. A classic dont judge a book by its cover example. The short review on the book makes you think its a good book about some crazy weather..........its not really though. I thought it would be a lot like "the day after tomorrow". It was a pretty slow book clear up untill the end. Last part of the book wasnt to bad. In my opinion, the book was more political and goverment conspiricy then weather. I would never read this book again nor would I recommend it to anyone.

Do not spend a dime on this book. Drivel, pure and simple. Characters were flat, the premise quite silly. I was hoping for more scientific trueness here,meteorological information and basis. This would be good on the Hallmark channel. Couldn't make it past the first 50 pages.
