Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The gigantic comet had slammed into Earth, forging earthquakes a thousand times too powerful to measure on the Richter scale, tidal waves thousands of feet high. Cities were turned into oceans; oceans turned into steam. It was the beginning of a new Ice Age and the end of civilization. But for the terrified men and women chance had saved, it was also the dawn of a new struggle for survival--a struggle more dangerous and challenging than any they had ever known....

"Massively entertaining."

Synopsis:

The trade paper re-launch of a classic sci-fi bestseller from the authors of the acclaimed alien invasion epic "Football". For millionaire Tim Hamner, the comet he helped discover is a ticket to immortality. For filmmaker Harvey Randall, it's a chance to redeem a flagging career. And for astronauts John Baker and Rick Delanty, it's a second chance for glory in outer space.

A very thought provoking story, and even more so because of this real threat the Earth may face one day. I found myself wondering what I would do in such a scenario. One of the best books I have read, and one of the most memorable. I find myself recommending it to almost everyone I know.

A classic and a great one at that. It starts pretty slow but don't put it down, that sleepy start turns into one powerful story. Beautifully written and absolutely disturbing in it's realism, it's a must for any apocalyptic fan.

For anyone with apocalyptic tendencies, this book is a must. Follow the lives of over a dozen characters that survive after a meteor hits the Earth and severely disrupts normal life. From community to cannibalism you'll know who to look out for after the 'big one' hits.
