Impact by Douglas Preston

from library

This book was wonderful.  It has a unique twist on the popular end of the world scenario.

The format reminded me of James Rollins books in that the story progressed from separate viewpoints.  Each chapter takes place in different parts of the world with different characters.  Eventually, it all comes together.

This is the first book I have read by Douglas Preston, but it definitely won’t be the last.  I love reading apocalyptic stories and Impact certainly is that.

The story has plots within plots.  They were so well written I could not decide which ones were the more intense: the ones about the end of the world or the ones about the deaths of individuals.

I know it is a cliche to call a book a “page-turner,” but this one definitely meets that description.

As a side note, this is the fifteenth book I have read this month.  I was not planning on participating in The Book Whisperer’s Book-a-Day Challenge, but it looks like I need to sign up.
