Oh dear. I got three pages into this book before my good sense screamed loudly in my ear, forcing me to put it away until the dreaded day comes when I have nothing at all to read, there is nothing on the television and the internet has been shut down for maintenance. While the idea of the world tilting on its axis is nothing new, The Day The Earth Caught Fire, for instance, I don’t believe I have read such a badly written three pages since I was in school desperately trying to finish an essay.
Badly written is one thing, but the story went straight into the disaster almost without thinking. One moment the President gets a telex from a ship in the Antarctic saying the ice cap is melting and the next he is getting messages from around the world saying the tide is rising…… good way of building suspense… NOT!
I can’t even count this as a book that I have read, but if I ever find a wobbly table, I have the perfect place to put Storehouses of the Snow!
