Force Majeure – Review
So I saw this book a few times at the bookstore but left it alone, but when I saw it at the library I signed it out. Twenty-year-old Shane Monroe works on a machine to generate tornadoes so that we can understand them and stop them. When it turns out his college assistantship is funded by the government he quits, but then he sees strange weather disasters and he knows that it’s his fault. This is the story of a normal (genius) kid and how he tries to stop him from using his machine for evil.
It was a fun easy read (high school level), lots of movie and television references by him and his buddies that I caught onto so that was fun. Lots of excitement as he gets caught up in the government conspiracy crisis that he’s not used to. A bit more gore (and death) than I expected at this reading level, but it increased the tension knowing that some of the characters might actually die.
