Praise

"The best storm book I’ve read, consumed mostly in twenty-four hours; these pages filled me with dread. Days later, I am still glancing out the window nervously. A well-told story."        
— Daniel Hays, author of My Old Man and the Sea

"Isaac’s Storm so fully swept me away into another place, another time that I didn’t want it to end. I braced myself from the monstrous winds, recoiled in shock at the sight of flailing children floating by, and shook my head at the hubris of our scientists who were so convinced that they had the weather all figured out. Erik Larson’s writing is luminous, the story absolutely gripping. If there is one book to read as we enter a new millennium, it’s Isaac’s Storm, a tale that reminds us that there are forces at work out there well beyond our control, and maybe even well beyond our understanding."        
— Alex Kotlowitz, author of The Other Side of the River and There Are No Children Here

"There is electricity in these pages, from the crackling wit and intelligence of the prose to the thrillingly described terrors of natural mayhem and unprecedented destruction. Though brimming with the subtleties of human nature, the nuances of history, and the poetry of landscapes, Isaac’s Storm still might best be described as a sheer page turner."
— Melissa Faye Greene, author of Praying for Sheetrock and The Temple Bombing
