Oh dear, it hasn't aged well. At the time it seemed plausible, even possibly true, and I think this was why I enjoyed it first time around. Cyclic climate change, asteroids and global warming have rather stolen the books thunder.
I'd forgotten that our hero was such a rotten lot; I'd forgotten that of our two female leads, one is a bunny boiler and the other a bit of a victim. Why do they want this man? And why would he want either of them?
I'd forgotten that the relationship dialogue and 'diary' entries went on and on and on for page after page...
And whenever anyone goes anywhere, its like Google Earth, we get a whole travel book describing every tedious turn and every dull landmark.
Two stars for the nostalgia value, otherwise give it a miss
It is a great story, well ahead of it's time in terms of the effects of global warming. But I had forgotten how much padding is in it, and I'm sure that the story could have been told with more power in less words. So only 4 stars!
i have recently orderd and re read it and if anything its more relavent now than it was then.
its about a sientist who has a theory for the impending end of the world. but instead of bieng a si fi book it has a bit of everything,romance, fact, fiction ect.
it uses proven, often odd geological facts to build up his theory
and then to bring his theory to the public eye he rigs up a fake assasination on the president of America
once he has there attention he uses a renowned reporter to investigate his theory
