Review: The Hurricane

The Hurricane The Hurricane by Hugh Howey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Book Talk:
What would you do if a category 5 hurricane veers off the predicted course and heads straight for your town? This is the situation faced by Daniel and his family, who wait out the dangerous winds and rain in their small bathroom. And in the aftermath, they must adjust to life without modern-day conveniences...no phones, no running water, no electricity. How will Daniel and his family get through?

My Thoughts:
I really loved Howey's Wool series, and had high expectations of this one. Unfortunately, it fell flat. REALLY flat. There could have been so much more to this story (I'm thinking here along the lines of Terri Blackstock's Last Light, or One Second After). Instead, there is a lot of work up to the actual hurricane, and then...nothing. I just didn't care about this story.

My Rating:
2.5 out of 5 stars
