Book Review: The Deluge

I just finished reading The Deluge by Mark Morris. It was a fantastically chilling tale of death, survival and the enduring human spirit. This book will sink its teeth into you and leaving you gasping for more. I devoured the entire thing in two sittings.

It came from nowhere. The only warning was the endless rumble of a growing earthquake. Then the water came--crashing, rushing water, covering everything, destroying everything. When it stopped, all that was left was a gentle lapping of waves against the few remaining buildings rising above the surface of the sea.

Will the isolated survivors be able to rebuild their lives, their civilization, when nearly all they knew has been wiped out? It seems hopeless. But what lurks beneath the swirling water, waiting to emerge, is far worse. When the floodwaters finally recede, the true horror will be revealed.

Mr. Morris is a master at plotting and pacing, making it easy to lose yourself in the world he created. His characters are unforgettable and he manages to give us enough background to have an emotional interest in what happens to them, without bogging the story down with the details.

I highly recommend this book.

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
