    Not too much to say I was not crazy about this book The writing was pretty dull A huge earth quake destroys NYC and the story only deals with a few people This could have been HUGE, could have involved tonscharacters and development At the end one of the main characters was worrying about getting a cell phone back to a person or their family in case this character died who he borrowed it from Really Millions of people dead, the entire city destroyed and all that damage and you thi Not too much to say I was not crazy about this book The writing was pretty dull A huge earth quake destroys NYC and the story only deals with a few people This could have been HUGE, could have involved tonscharacters and development At the end one of the main characters was worrying about getting a cell phone back to a person or their family in case this character died who he borrowed it from Really Millions of people dead, the entire city destroyed and all that damage and you think anyone is going to care about a cell phone

    The last 3 or 4 books I read were long ish and dealt with murder, horror, and non fiction It was time for something a little on the lighter side and a return to one of my favorite genres the disaster novel At 348 pages, Quake was just the right amount of pages for a real quick read and it cost me a measly 6 bucks at Walmart, so I figured I couldn t really lose out, even if I wasn t expecting much Quake actually surprised me It was better than I could have guessed based on its cheap cove The last 3 or 4 books I read were long ish and dealt with murder, horror, and non fiction It was time for something a little on the lighter side and a return to one of my favorite genres the disaster novel At 348 pages, Quake was just the right amount of pages for a real quick read and it cost me a measly 6 bucks at Walmart, so I figured I couldn t really lose out, even if I wasn t expecting much Quake actually surprised me It was better than I could have guessed based on its cheap cover and unknown author There was virtually no set up or lengthy, drawn out explanation which I like Instead, the quake happens almost instantly and for the next 335 pages or so, it s a book that never really slows down Douglas does a decent job at keeping the pace steady and never letting the story get too far out of control There s even a few unrealistic twists and turns thrown in for good measure.I just wish that Douglas wouldn t have tried to make this book 3 different things at once On one hand it s a disaster novel On another it s a thriller dealing with terrorism Somewhere along the lines we get subjected to a political stance as well All of those things are totally fine, don t get mw wrong, but it s really hard to try and cram all of those things into a short novel like this one Plus, it makes for a highly unlikely and contrived plot Not that there s anything wrong with that hell, isn t the entire genre of horror that way , but here, I wish the author would have picked just one area to focus on It seems to me that ever since Dorchester went out of business a few years back, there hasn t been a real good independent publisher to pick up the slack Now, however, it looks like Kennsington and their Pinnacle imprint are the new go to guys I ve already seen ex Leisure authors on this company s roster I say all that because, like that defunct company, I ve found a few, nice little surprising reads and authors with Kennsington And Douglas is no different Quake is an enjoyable, quick read, that, should you just want to escape from the world for a few days, is worth the time spent in it

    This is a solid 3.5 star book, I ended up rounding off to three It s a good book I just don t see myself rereading it I received a copy of the book through goodreads in exchange for an honest review The Quake takes place over a twenty four hour time period in Manhattan and north at nearby Indian Point power plant The trial of terrorist Feroz Saeed Alivi in U.S Federal Court was beginning Assistant U.S Attorney Nick Dykstra was in front of the jury when the tremors began The earthquake This is a solid 3.5 star book, I ended up rounding off to three It s a good book I just don t see myself rereading it I received a copy of the book through goodreads in exchange for an honest review The Quake takes place over a twenty four hour time period in Manhattan and north at nearby Indian Point power plant The trial of terrorist Feroz Saeed Alivi in U.S Federal Court was beginning Assistant U.S Attorney Nick Dykstra was in front of the jury when the tremors began The earthquake although no one in the courtroom knew it was a quake was 9.0 Escaping from the courtroom and then the building was near impossible There was never a doubt in Nick s mind he would get out, he had to find his daughter, Lauren She was on a tour of Columbia University, considering the college for the coming fall After his wife perished in the Twin Towers on 9 11, his daughter and his work became Nick s world She needed him just as much He would find her Meanwhile, Special Agent Francisco Frank Mendoza is at the courthouse to appear as a witness and finds himself trapped in the rubble instead Nick found him, well his waving arm, and managed to extract him Mendoza decided to head north with Nick His wife was a nurse on duty at St Luke s Roosevelt St Luke s Roosevelt was on the way to Columbia So the men walked into total devastation, unclear how they d do it, intent on getting to the ones they loved I liked this book The events and the destruction are uncomfortably believable though somewhat improbable for New York City Gruesome depictions are minimal The dust palpable, the rubble inconceivable, the not knowing terrifying, the absolute loss of normalcy paralyzing the book itself may not be this strong but it has the ability to connect with those feelings buried inside everyone I did find certain things unnecessarily repetitive and began to interrupt the story flow or just break the pace for me But that s just me Read it for yourself you may never notice

    Goodreads First Reads advanced copy I would rate Quake by Jack Douglas 3 and 1 2 stars The story was a quick read and kept up the excitement most of the way through However, there were a few things about the story that grated my nerves First, I found it annoying when the author continuously referred to the main character as Assistant United States Attorney Nick Dykstra or AUSA Nick Dykstra To me it was overkill I got to the point where I said to myself I understand what his job is Stop b Goodreads First Reads advanced copy I would rate Quake by Jack Douglas 3 and 1 2 stars The story was a quick read and kept up the excitement most of the way through However, there were a few things about the story that grated my nerves First, I found it annoying when the author continuously referred to the main character as Assistant United States Attorney Nick Dykstra or AUSA Nick Dykstra To me it was overkill I got to the point where I said to myself I understand what his job is Stop beating me over the head with it Secondly there were several scenes in the book that felt like generic plot devices used in action thrillers especially in those that become movies First was the scene where the assumed dead person grabs the main character, thereby scaring them half to death The second was when a pack of dogs attacked two secondary characters in Central Park I could not envision dogs one assumes at least some where pets since they had collars on turning that feral within 12 hours of the earthquake To me it felt too soon The third time was when a random person attacked the main character, forcing him to shoot him multiple times The last two seemedlike devices used simply to make the characters waste ammunition rather than to extend the story Overall I still enjoyed Quake and would recommend it to those looking for a quick summer read with very few surprises

    The first ebook installment is out Nonstop action and a great beginning OK, now I finished reading it At one point I regretted not waiting to read the whole book in one go because I was left hanging badly a few times.My only complaint with this excellent thriller is that, once again, a writer wrecked havoc on New York city Please, guys, can you pick some other town once in a while

    I don t know what I was expecting for a dollar my mom bought this for me at the Dollar Tree I thought it would be interesting since it was a disaster novel and I love disaster novels but this one was just terrible I would have loved the story withsurvivors instead of only a couple and the endless flashbacks to their past just to fill time the unrealistic evets of some things like the terrorists surviving and somehow finding the daughter which made no complete sense at all I just wish it c I don t know what I was expecting for a dollar my mom bought this for me at the Dollar Tree I thought it would be interesting since it was a disaster novel and I love disaster novels but this one was just terrible I would have loved the story withsurvivors instead of only a couple and the endless flashbacks to their past just to fill time the unrealistic evets of some things like the terrorists surviving and somehow finding the daughter which made no complete sense at all I just wish it could have been better but I guess for a dollar I got my money s worth

    A natural disaster, a nuclear meltdown and a terrorist running around NYC Sounds like an 80 s action moviebut like a bad one, where the storyline does stupid stuff, like leaving a grenade next to someone s head, or not telling the guys coming to save your butt that there are terrorists trying to cause a meltdown Too much introspection that added nothing to the story and bland characters that left the reader not caring what happened to them.
