I won this book through the Goodreads First Reads Giveaway on 07/15/2011!
I was really excited to read this book. The idea that someone or something can control the weather sounded really interesting and the possibilities seemed endless with how this book would work out.
Let me tell you, the beginning of the book was hairy. I had to really push through it. There was a lot of background info and scientific stuff that I'm usually into but it was just too much. Once you get to the meat of the story, it was pretty good. I think that it could have been pushed a little further and explored a few more avenues - in my mind. That's the thing with book reviews. They are all subjective. Each person is going to have a different view on how it should have gone and not everyone is going to be completely happy. Anyway, it was just okay. I don't think that it turned out to be the earth-shattering book that I thought it would, but I might read it again. Maybe I'm just no science-y enough to fully appreciate it.
