I actually cared about the characters to the extent that I wanted it to keep going when I got to the end - always the sign of a good story.
The old cliche 'couldn't put it down' actually applies and I was happy to burn the midnight oil required to fit reading it into a busy schedule. A rare book for me because just seeing the cover was enough to set off the feeling of excitement.
While I was worrying about whether Luke and Maddie would survive, I also found a corner of my brain wondering if this was real science, if the world really was running out of water, if this really is the next global crisis. It made for fascinating reading!
An excellent environmental, action thriller.
And so I stumbled upon THIRST, a standalone novel by British-Australian author L. A. Larkin. Glaciologist Luke Searle is in for the fight of his life when a sinister plot unravels on the ice, with catastrophic results for the entire world unless Luke can stop it.
I don't read many thrillers nowadays, especially ones that put countries against each other. (Think James Bond.) In this case, the baddie is Chinese, and his father - the General - is even more of a baddie. (Circa page 320, there's a flashback to a pre-rape scene, so you may want to skip those few pages.) Wendy Woo is a great heroine, but she's relegated to only the odd chapter here and there.
Corporate greed has the power to destroy the world in this chilling thriller. Larkin keeps the pace up for the entire novel as survival skills are put to the test. THIRST is bloody good.
