A violent storm, affectionately known as Maria, sweeps through California and changes the lives of many in its path.
I think that’s the shortest Goodreads Summary I have ever posted!
Storm promised to be a good thrilling time, but I was bored. This was meant to be a slow build but not only was I bored, I just wasn’t feeling it. So what’s “it” about? Storms. Sorry. Couldn’t help it lol.
Storm is about a hurricane named Maria. It’s about her slow build up to a place in California that’s desperately in need of water, suffering a drought. This was set back in the early days but it kinda felt similar to today’s choppy weather. It’s good writing and interesting notes about how weather is gathered and what scientists in weather all do and how they do it. It’s about preparing for the unexpected and horrific strong hurricane’s that comes out of nowhere. It’s about survival of the fittest.
It wasn’t a bad read. I dnf’d at about 45% of the way through, however. I might return to it though I doubt it.
Until next time,
