Top critical review
Great writing, too much detail
Reviewed in the United States on September 13, 2015
While I found the historical information heartbreaking and interesting, all of the weather forecast information was way too detailed and dragged out. I found myself drifting off to sleep and zoning out with chapter after chapter of how storms formed. I am an avid reader and I am usually through a book in about 2 days, this book took me 2 weeks to complete. It just didn't keep me captive. The chapters on the actual storm and families I went through pretty rapidly, but the rest left me bored. I gave it a 3 star as the writing was good and the historical value was excellent, but it was not as grabbing and riveting as the books I normally enjoy.
