Disaster Novels But This One novels but this one just terrible I would have loved the story with survivors instead of only a couple and the THIEME Atlas of Anatomy endless flashbacks to their past just to fill time the unrealisticvets of some things like the terrorists surviving and somehow finding the daughter which made no complete sense at all I just wish it could have been better but I guess for a dollar I got my money s worth Audiobook Review uake by Jack Douglas ABR s full uake audiobook review can be found at Audiobook Reviewer The first Sanibel Virgin ebook installment is out Nonstop action and a great beginning OK now I finished reading it At one point I regretted not waiting to read the whole book in one go because I was left hanging badly a few timesMy only complaint with thisxcellent thriller is that once again a writer wrecked havoc on New York city Please guys can you pick some other town once in a while This is the most suspenseful book I have Way of the Shaman ever read a true nail biter There are several things going on in the book First a 90arthuake in New York with many aftershocks then a nuclear plant with damage and terrorists This book is now one of my favorite books I highly recommend it to those that don t mind sitting on the Gallowglass edge through thentire book Goodreads First Reads advanced copyI would rate uake by Jack Douglas 3 and 12 stars The story was a uick read and kept up the xcitement most of the way through However there were a few things about the story that grated my nerves First I found it annoying when the author continuously referred to the main character as Assistant United States Attorney Nick Dykstra or AUSA Nick Dykstra To me it was overkill I got to the point where I said to myself I understand what his
is Stop beating me over the head with itSecondly there were several scenes in the book that like generic plot devices used in actionthrillers specially in those that become movies First was the scene where the assumed dead person grabs the main character thereby scaring them half to death The second was when a pack of dogs attacked two secondary characters in Central Park I could not The Public-Private Partnership Handbook envision dogs one assumes at least some where pets since they had collars on turning that feral within 12 hours of thearthuake To me it felt too soon The third time was when a random person attacked the main character forcing him to shoot him multiple times The last two seemed like devices used simply to make the characters waste ammunition rather than to What Next After School ? extend the story Overall I stillnjoyed uake and would recommend it to those looking for a uick summer read with very few surprises UAKE by Jack Douglas is the kind.

Total devastation unclear how they d do it intent on getting to the ones they loved I liked this book The vents and the destruction are uncomfortably
BELIEVABLE THOUGH SOMEWHAT IMPROBABLE FOR NEWthough somewhat improbable for New City Gruesome depictions are minimal The dust palpable the rubble inconceivable the not knowing terrifying the absolute loss of normalcy paralyzing the book itself may not be this strong but it has the ability to connect with those feelings buried inside veryone I did find certain things unnecessarily repetitive and began to interrupt the story flow or just break the pace for me But that s just me Read it for yourself you may never notice The last 3 or 4 books I read were longish and dealt with murder horror and non fiction It was time for something a little on the lighter side and a return to one of my favorite genres the disaster novel At 348 pages uake was just the right amount of pages for a real uick read and it cost me a measly 6 bucks at Walmart so I figured I couldn t really lose out The Voyage of the Norman D., As Told by the Cabin Boy even if I wasn txpecting muchuake actually surprised me It was better than I could have guessed based on its cheap cover and unknown author There was virtually no set up or lengthy drawn out xplanation which I like Instead the uake happens almost instantly and for the next 335 pages or so it s a book that never really slows down Douglas does a decent job at keeping the pace steady and never letting the story get too far out of control
There s ven a few unrealistic twists and turns thrown in for good measureI just wish that Douglas wouldn ts ven a few unrealistic twists and turns thrown in for good measureI just wish that Douglas wouldn t tried to make this book 3 different things at once On one hand
