The book's main character is teenager Daniel who is a aware he is not the coolest kid in school and lives with Mum, Step dad, older brother and younger sister.
The story revolves around - you've guessed it - a hurricane which blows through the neighbourhood. As after any catastrophic event people pull together and cement alliances with their neighbours etc due to a common shared event.
And that is it really.
The family work together to repair the house and go some way to repairing relationships with Daniel's absent father who shows up to help. They become friends with their neighbours and maybe learn a little about themselves.
Daniel is an endearing character, the descriptions of the hurricane are good, but I felt let down as nothing really happens.
However I did finish it and I enjoy this style of writing - just felt the plot meandered and ended up nowhere.
At a party Daniel is totally humiliated but then Hurricane Anna changes course and is heading straight for his town. The storm leaves lots of damage but also brings about an unexpected improvement to Daniel's life. Good story. Easy to read. 4 stars.
This ISN’T one of those books.
Hugh Howey presents family conflict and relationships against a backdrop of disaster. The characters are believable, and the children act in an age-appropriate manner. Although the end moves slower than I would have liked, “The Hurricane” is a good read that will keep you engaged and interested.
Problem is, nothing at all happens in this story! It revolves around an out of sorts teenager finding his feet in a fast moving, connected world.
SPOILER ALERT: Then, there is a hurricane, and the family fix the house. Erm, that's it!
