    Although it was a little hard to follow is places, this is a book full of history, drama and an amazing explanation of how things were and the impact it’s had on life in Texas today and the rest of the United States.

    Fascinating. Larson’s ability to tell historical stories in such a cinematic way is unparalleled. Great and informative reading having grown up in Houston, Texas all my life.

    Today when we can all look at our smartphones and get an hour by hour prediction of pending weather it's hard to imagine a time when you could be surprised by something as devastating as a hurricane. In Isaac's Storm, Erik Larson gives you a front row seat to one of the most destructive hurricanes in Texas history and and an authentic view into the lives & times of the bustling city of Galveston Texas at the turn of the century. Fast passed and highly readable Larson hits it out of the park with this one.

    Bought and read it right after I had purchased a beach house in Delaware. Needless to say I watched the ocean w a bit more respect each hurricane season since.

    No pun intended. As always a riveting story told by one of the greatest historical storytellers of our time. Fantastic book.
