"FLARE" by Paul Grzegorzek - is far more Science Fiction - it is a Prophesy
on 27 October 2014
"FLARE" by Paul Grzegorzek - is far more than a Science Fiction novel. I would classify it more as a "Prophecy". I myself an an author with a 336 page SF Book published on amazon, and so I should know! Though one refrains from spoilers, in this outstanding and well researched thriller, there is some activity in the Corona of the Sun, which ejects a CME that is so powerful that it smashes through the Earths magnetic umbrella and hits the earth head on. Solar Flares are what cause the 'Northern Lights' which are beautiful to look at and considered harmless except to cause slight disruptions in radio emissions. But the narration of what happens to Malcolm a simple journalist when he receives repeated calls from an astronomer friend to meet him and finally goes, is really astounding and perhaps will one day have the entire population of the Earth preparing to go "Back to the Basics" when there was no electricity or radio. This is an amazing novel which is prophetic in every way, as mankind if warned of the consequences of playing with nature, the greed of powerful men who are ready to go to any length to exploit even planetary disasters to meet their own ends. The story is well developed, has very believable characters, tons of thrills and excitement, smoothly flows from one scene to another and deserves a 5 Star in every area. Highly recommended for everyone who knows how to read, and specially for the heads of all Governments across the globe!
