Meltdown 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Intelligent, Realistic Thriller Meltdown is a very detailed, intelligent book that explains what happens when a 6.4 earthquake, with its epicenter in the town Peekskill, NY, causes damage to a nuclear power plant nearby. It is so realistic that it is frightening! It follows Trace, one of four control-room supervisor at Bear Mountain Nuclear Energy Center, while he is inside the plant and Avi, Trace’s wife, outside the plant. Trace is feverishly trying to prevent a nuclear reactor meltdown after it sustains damage from the earthquake, while battling with his supervisors as they work against his better judgment and take direction from the Governor and other politicians trying to squelch public panic. This book also follows Avi, outside the plant, as she frantically searches for their daughter who was at day care when the earthquake happened and has hopefully been moved to safety. Without working phones, with destroyed roadways and bridges, and chaos at all of the shelters and hospitals, Avi, who was injured when she was at the grocery store when the quake hit, is desperate to find Brooklyn. Not only is this book written in a dual point of view -Trace and Avi- you also get to read what thoughts they are having, which are written in italics, so it make it easy to follow. We also get to glimpse into the past and current state of their marriage, where they both figure out, when faced with this state of emergency, that they both wish they hadn’t grown so far apart. GP James uses a lot of magnificent, intelligent words in this book like acrimonious, conflagrant, turpitude, exultant, phalanx, egregious, and omnipresent, just to name a few. I love books that challenge me intellectually while taking me on an up and down ride. Like surfing the ocean’s waves, this plot will lull you into thinking things are going well until the next wave hits. It’s an exhilarating read! Just shy of 400 pages, you will definitely get your money’s worth out of this book.
