I gave it 3 stars only because of the realism. This portrayed disaster is one few (me) consider. After reading this I don't see how one can prepare on an individual basis. I'd prefer not to live long in this situation. However, I cannot understand those who live in 'prone' areas, like Seattle, not being ready/prepared for a quake. If you live in tornado country you generally have a plan; living in the desert - always carry extra water. Going to mountains during snow - one prepares.
The quake areas are unpredictable & imminent, you know it's going to happen sooner or later. If you don't have some sort of plan & just assume others will take care of you....dream on. This possibility has been in the news for years, if you've ignored it, I'd say you are a fool.

It's as bad as a horror story! Kinda knocks you back into reality.

This book really makes you start to think about how prepared you would be if a large disaster hit and help didn't come right away.

Although a story and topic to think about I must admit that I found at times I had troubles with the writing and the "american" style of the way the characters reacted in the story.

Unrealistic and has a serious conservative slant to it. I couldn't get past the lack of realism though.
