Flood Plains

Flood Plains - Mark Wheaton This book has several things going for it. (1) Good characters. Survivors of Katrina facing down another hurricane with a new supernatural element works well. They are complex and you care about them. (2) An interesting monster. This is a monster romp with clearly the biggest monster in the history of monster romps. Interesting concept also. (3) Well written. Even with the Wheaton books that I do not like he has a high degree of skill with narration and dialogue which is no surprise since he is successful scriptwriter. No exception here. This novel, which I did like, moves at a brisk pace smoothly toward the finale. Well done and enjoyable. It would be a good one to take to the beach.....
