I really enjoyed Kona Heat. The Big Island setting appealed to me, right off the bat, and the Kishels even threw a little Hawaiian history into the plot. The premise of a company¿s desire to tap into the immense power of Hawaii¿s Kiluea volcano for energy production is extremely timely. No doubt some have wondered about the possibility, as we become more aware of global warming and the impact of our activities on the world¿s climates. The authors give us good character development early on, so as the story unfolds, we understand who the people that populate it are. Personally, I like even more background on characters, but some people get turned off by too much of it, so I guess they found a happy medium. The bottom line is that Kona Heat is a good story with a believable premise. By the time I was about two-thirds of the way through the book, I couldn¿t put it down. The last few chapters gave me mental pictures worthy of a Steven Spielberg movie. In fact, this would make a great movie. The beauty of Hawaii is a proven movie attraction, by itself. With an interesting plot and characters, and an ending with potentially dazzling special effects, Kona Heat would be one of those films that could be just as good as the book. But, until Spielberg or George Lucas catches on¿ I recommend READING Kona Heat!
