I have read all of this authors books and highly recommend him. I find his books to be gripping, interesting and very readable. He is still an active commercial Pilot, who takes you on a tour of his knowledge and experiences which is breathtaking and edge of the seat reading. My only wish is that he would write more. An EXCELLENT author and obviously my favourite, I hope he becomes one of yours. Gerry Turner.

Fast-paced, suspenseful, a page-turner. 24 Sept. 2005
By Ragnar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In my opinion, in Saving Cascadia, John J. Nance has written another excellent thriller. As a professional geologist, I found his research on the Cascadia Subduction Zone to be authentic and believable. As a novelist who writes about some of the same subjects as John, both wildfire and earthquakes, I found Saving Cascadia to be a page turner - the kind you stay up with all night - fast-paced, suspenseful, brilliantly plotted, with realistically flawed characters thrown up against one challenge after another.

Interesting, but still lacking a certain something 20 April 2006
By M. Galindo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was the first book I have read by John J. Nance. The concept was interesting, but I couldn't help but comparing it to the old "Earthquake" movie: ruthless capitalist knows there is a problem and refuses to deal with it, as hero seismologist attempts to save his corner of the world while at the same time his own personal life is in disarray. Involved is a whole host of other characters with their own stories. The comparisons just were overwhelming to me. I kept thinking that the author was going to concentrate on the flying/helicoptor rescue bits of this novel, but it just wasn't to be.

Overall the book kept me interested and I felt it fairly well written. However, I just kept thinking the author was holding something back. If the book was more edgy I think it might have been better and far more interesting. **SPOILER** Everything just ties up entirely too nicely, and I think that is part of the problem.

If looking for a relatively interesting book to pass the time, this one might do it.

Entertaining 5 April 2005
By Konrad Kern - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I found this novel to be entertaining. It's a nice change that John J. Nance doesn't write yet another air disaster but keeps it on the ground instead. Nance is a very skilled writer with a narrative that puts you in the middle of the story. A fast and sometimes emotional story that kept me entertained.

Saving time out of your life 6 April 2010
By just pixels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Saving Cascadia" is a silly waste of reading time. Implausible plot, coupled with characters who don't seem quite capable of rational thought, mixed with the laughable personal "relationship" sub-plots, adds up to six hours subtracted from your life forever.

In the middle of the contrived crisis, characters confront each other over childhood slights, affairs (real or imagined), political intrigues and jarringly out-of-place "issues". Seems like they'd have more important things to talk about.

There is a twist bolted on at the end. Technically this book is pre-spoiled, but I won't give away the twist except indirectly: One of the characters purposely caused the death and destruction as a form of revenge because somehow this character knew there would be an earthquake in that location, at that time, in that way by being in exactly the right place to cause it all to happen. Revenge is a dish best served cold, but it's so much easier to serve it on Facebook.

Anyway, save yourself the time and read (or listen) to something else.

Redemption for Nance in my opinion 7 July 2007
By Adam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was everything I used to love about Nance's books: action and mystery. It was difficult to put down. I'm happy he made this book, despite the fact that it deviates pretty far from his usual genre, because I feel like his last few books have been disappointing. Definitely a worthwhile read if you like aviation, geology, and engineering.
