I have always loved books ever since I learnt to read. The sort of person who would look at an instruction manual if there were nothing else available. Not that that has happened too often - I have tottering piles of books not to mention e books. I will read almost anything as l long as it holds my interest. Besides books. I love music, photography, cryptic crosswords and playing Fitz 1 & 2 games.

Solar storms - no electricity in the northern hemisphere leaving people to their own devices. I love world changing disaster books, so couldn't resist this one, especially after seeing the cover. Sadly though the story didn't quite hit the mark - it wasn't menacing enough, it didn't need the Middle East sections, far too much about the US president and not enough about some of the other characters especially in the aftermath. It would have been interesting to see how they got through it all, how they survived everything. A shame too that the ending was rushed. Love the idea for the book - certainly makes you think!
