    erik larson is the darling of the narrative nonfiction world, and while this is the first of his books i have read, i ve long appreciated his commitment to cover consistency and then there s this one, breaking up the visual flow written in 1999, this is one of his first, and i can only assume that, along with growing into a particular font and layout groove as his career progressed, he also grew as a

    Ever want to read a nonfiction tragedy about a presumptive meteorologist Exactly Still, Isaac s Storm is an engaging cautionary tale, and one with a bit of relevance for America today In fact the book is almost foreshadowing in that it was published just a couple of years before Hurricane Katrina The writing in this book is not nearly as tuned as it is in The Devil in the White City, but Larson is still

    It s been 15 years since I read this chilling account of the event that annihilatedthan 6,000 American souls in one fell swoop, but it still haunts me As Galveston and Corpus Christie brace themselves for Hurricane Harvey, this fantastic book is fresh on my mind.Today, satellite imagery and long term storm forecasts are standard fare We ve all had televisions since our parents or even grandparents were kids

    When Hurricane Irene made landfall last month, I ll admit to feeling a tiny bit of storm envy Ensconced in landlocked Nebraska, I could only watch on CNN and MSNBC as the winds slashed and the rain pelted and the seas rose Friends on the east coast littered my Facebook feed with updates about closures, storm preparations, and hurricane parties It was the last of these that really made me jealous I love situati

    Erik Larson has the mind of a dedicated historian and the heart of a yarn spinning storyteller ISSAC S STORM was everything I had hoped it would be, both scrupulously detailed and as enthralling as any Hollywood disaster blockbuster It should come as no surprise really, as Larson has demonstrated himself as one of America s most unique and readable historians Still, I can t help but to feel awed whenever I read a

    Erik Larson delivers every time He has the rare ability to take historical events and weave together yarns that in the end feel like you re reading a page turning novel In Isaac s Storm Larson takes us to a thriving seaside city in Texas circa 1900, to a time when people felt they could control nature He paints the story of how the infamous hurricane that hit Galveston, Texas, on September 8th of that year devastate

    SPOILER FREE This is a book focused on the science of weather If that subject does not intersts you, do not rad this book You must be interested in this science It is a book of non fiction don t expect a book that will relate a harrowing tale of the hurricane that destroyed Galveston in September 1900 You will get that too, but first you must build up to the storm and understand the politics dictating the actions of th

    What a great story This book just raced along full of facts and interesting detail about a man, a time, and the deadliest hurricane in history I must admit that when this book was first released in Australia I wasn t overly interested It didn t sound like something that would interest me in the slightest How wrong can you be, after picking the book up for the third or fourth time and actually taking the time to see what t

    Here s a tragedy that could not have been completely avoided, but due to man s folly became much worse than it should have been The U.S Weather Service in September of 1900 ignored most reports of a severe hurricane brewing in the Caribbean Drawing on a great deal of denial and no small amount of racism, the Americans condemned Cuban forecasts which were also understated, but not nearly so heinously as emotional, avoiding al

    It s probablythan a little shameful to admit it post Katrina, but weather porn can be deeply satisfying Hurricanes, cyclones, tornadoes, tsunamis, mudslides, styrofoam impaling oak trees, low pressure troughs, the Beaufort scale don t you feel a little tingly already When we combine weather porn with the romance of a good story, we get Sebastian Junger and The Perfect Storm the perfect balance between good science and great sto
