    • Sort of a sad story -- no rocket ship travel for us -- no weather prediction 4 weeks in advance, andweather changing. It seems to me that this was not really spot on -- science wise.


    • I thought it was really good, about a future where humans are gaining control of the weather. And misusing the knowledge, of course.


    • I realized I had read this book about 10 years ago.Bova likes to write stories about the environment and this is one of his good onesRecommended book, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Author
