Extinction
hardcover
380 pages
As a disaster movie fan I really enjoyed this book and think it would make a cracking movie up there beside Armageddon and The Day After Tomorrow.

Set in the not-too-distant future mankind has found a way to manage the worlds climate. And of course, rather then investigating possible long term side effects, the Americans went straight for the cash, using it for the benefit of those who can afford it. The highest bidder gets to buy rain or shine depending on its countries needs. Storms are diverted and all seems right with the world.

Meanwhile, lawyer Michael Fairfax gets set to sue the worlds climate management companies in aid of those forced to live in exile because global warming flooded their country. However, soon Michaels witnesses start disappearing and it seems the US is doing everything it can to gag their testimony that climate management is in fact wrecking the planet. Then Mother Nature decides to prove his point for him. Volcanoes across the globe start coming back to life and before you know it the apocalypse is upon us.

Extinction is a really gripping read to start of with, because its one of those books that you just can’t put down. The ending is rather dissapointing however, predictable and just too 'feel-good' to fit in with the armaggadon-is-coming message of the rest of the book, and it kind of ruins the sense of doom and gloom that hangs over the rest of the story

Still Recommended though!
