Nobody is laughing now are they?
From Anonymous of Towanda, Illinois on 1/21/2007.
An interesting, not able to put down book. Really makesyou rethink about influences on the global climate.
it is scary that many of the warning signs in this book that were laughed about are now becoming true...what's next?
From Jason Welsh of Oshawa, Ontario on 1/6/2007.
i am sitting here in a city just 30 minutes east of Toronto by car. normally by now (jan 11) people are complaining about how cold it is but today i walked my dog in a t-shirt and came home sweating. we have not had a winter yet this year. i was sun tanning three days before christmas. when this book was written these things seemed unreal but as i read TCGS, an eerie sense of realization came over me that all of the indicators are here and it is probably already too late. as i read more about what the book says will come i am terrified.

this should be required reading in school, all we have to do to belive is look outside cherry blossems in Dec-Jan, no snow in the tri-state reagion for Nov-Dec. that's a 1st in over 200 yrs (1877).

so true...like reading a living prophecy.
From Abby de Roche of Ishpeming, Michigan on 9/20/2005.
This book, although a bit challenging to get into in the beginning, is my handbook for the changes to come on earth. Anyone who is seriously wondering what is happening to our planet needs to read this. Scientific facts are merged with a devastating scenario that makes you realize just how much has to be done to survive global warming. A must-read!
Straightforward and scary
From Dustin of Mt. Victory, Ohio on 9/16/2005.
This book is amazing! I have read it 6 or 7 times, no kidding. The fictional storm occuring during the story just takes what is already a good book and makes it amazing. It is a wake up call, and has made me consider our climate much more fragile than once thought. Check it out!
A must read
From Drew Edwards of Westland, Michigan on 9/7/2005.
A must read for those who think like US.
From Candice Noble of Caledonia, New York on 7/10/2005.
I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! It has made me more aware of the weather. I tell all my friends about it when we get on the topic of weather. This book has made me a strong supporter of its theroies. The whole book is just facts, not here say and arguments on who is right or wrong. Like the viewing of the fossil record, and finding animals frozen instantly with food still in their mouth. And the peresent day evidence with the wild hurricane season that we're in and this year we were below average for tornados inthe month of May (The average is 500 we only recived 100 BIG DIFFERENCE THERE)The bottom line is that I'm glad someone finaly issued a book worth reading, something that sounds like fiction but is a real danger.
Kudos to Bell and Strieber
From Anonymous of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on 6/9/2005.
This is without a doubt one of the best books I've ever read. It's indeed an eye opener. People say that such a storm of enormous magnitude could not happen for a million years. Well maybe not a million, but how about 5 or 10 years, or even next year. The evidence this clear and with the N. Atlantic Current(That's our Gulf Stream and the N. Atlantic Drift which gives us our temperate climate) is on the verge of collapsing and when that happens radical and abrupt climate change will happen maybe not as dramatic as in The Day After Tomorrow, but I believe such a superstorm will occur in our lifetime. The book is a must read for people who care about our planet and the human species especially in this benighted and misological time of ours.
highly recommended for the skeptical
From mindy of rescue, Connecticut on 1/15/2005.
it discourages me that society and government officials are barely starting to realize what is happening to our planet. This book is a scary but true way to look at not only what we've done to ourselves, but what we have done to our planet. It's already happening, and I'm lucky I got the chance to expierience this book. MAY GOD BE WITH YOU.....
Why did I wait so long?
From thomas kelty of Eastsound, Washington on 7/9/2004.
I knew Whitley was a very good author from his alien encounters work and from his horror novels/movies. This novel was a wonderful reaffirmation of his talent and deep committment to educating humanity.He blends science, a "fictional future", aeons of earth history,and a breath-taking sweep of time covering prior earth civilizations that must have considered themselves the pinnacle of creation as do we.A great summer read with substance.
Another Wakeup Call
From James Warner of Burbank, California on 7/9/2004.
I read the book, I saw the movie, what I didn't see were any clashing errors or omissions or outright fantasizing. Everything is plausable, if not probable.In these last few decades, there are so many convergences of seemingly disrelated predictions: religious, occult and scientific, coming to a head, that the brave soul must prepare for the Chinese curse: "May you live in interesting times".
I coundn't put it down
From RICK BORDER of MIDDLETOWN, New Jersey on 6/28/2004.
i thought it was going to be good, but this was one of the best books i've ever read. koodo's to whitley and art*****
The Coming Global Superstorm and the Day After Tomorrow
From DustyButterfield of Clinton, Utah on 6/3/2004.
I bought the first book 5 years ago in 2000 and I just recently read the book to compare what is taking place with our climate lately and I found it and your novel I bought last month prophetic in nature. I believe with what you and Art said in the book about sudden climate change being a natural part of the planet and I agree that we may be affecting the climate of our world by speeding up the process by several thousand years but it will occurr regardless of human activity and we will see it within a decade or less and the U.S. will see more severe winters and wierd summers, springs and autumns. So keep up the good work and God bless Mr. Strieber. Dusty Butterfield
what the movie Should have been......
From thomas of alameda, California on 5/30/2004.
I read this book a few years ago in hardback.was of course fascinated and alarmed. Now ,after seeing the movie(day after tomorrow), I'm shagrinned to see what a weak presentation the movie was.the one chance the movie industry would ever have to place in the public eye,this important story,the ongoing destruction of the planet,as it's understood by scientists today who now know the world is truly heading in this direction...and this movie barely made a faint hearted statement about the issue.the computer special effects were cool.it's the way hollywood has to make movies now.but the real message of this Most Critical issue,in my view, was spoken with the meekest of voices,never at length,never with serious force,never with any context that would educate the audience about the Real danger the people of this world actually face. The book,however does make a real presentation of the real issue of global warming and the concern we should all have as the industrial power structure,that controls the culture,maintains the full-speed-ahead process of destroying the planet's eco-balance. I believe two things. the power and control that the petroleum industry has on the u.s government and culture will never be weakened enough,and as a result, global warming will continue to the breaking point;and two,this catastrophic global superstorm Will actually happen someday,maybe within the next 30 years,and when it does, people will experience a different feeling about Nature's 'special effects' as they get wiped off the face of the earth.you want to review this movie? ask yourself ,after seeing this movie,did it make you want to write a letter to your congressman about global warming?......what a wasted opportunity .
Not to be missed

A fascinating read, not to be missed.
Coming Global Superstorm
From Cheri Lewis of Golden Shores, Arizona on 5/6/2004.
It's a technical takeoff on the kind of book you read on a dark, windy, rainy night to get scared with. Because you know with all the facts in front of you, it really could happen, just like before. You have got to read this.
From Dean Ervik of Sydney, Australia, Australia on 4/1/2004.
Brilliant read!!!More a docu-action-lost-civilisations-eco-warning-with-a-twist rollacoaster with a strong scientific back bone.The greenhouse effect may end up much much cooler than you think. break out your snowboards dudes!10 stars! loved it! can't wait for the movie!!!!
The Coming Global Superstorm
From Tristan Z of Chula Vista, California on 2/1/2004.
This book is something everyone should read. It is sometimes hard to get through if you're just looking for a story, because there are many facts added to teach the reader. It's worth it though. Everyone should take this to heart and prepare for their families future survival. It will come to pass. Already there are news reports supporting what these authors have been talking about for ten years!
The Coming Global Superstorm
From Char Warrick of San Diego, California on 1/31/2004.
Outstanding and prophetic - couldn't put it down until completed reading!
A Must Read!
From TruthSeeker of Kansas City, Missouri on 9/30/2003.
This should be on every high school's reading list, it should be on every politician's reading list, it should be brought before the UN and something should be done about it.The denial is palpable and frustrating as hell! I read it when it first came out on hardback and bought a softbound copy even befoer they were offering signed copies (darnit). But, the person I was going to send it to wrote hurriedly back that they did not want it. Another person soul trapped in lies and denyal and deception ... in darkness.
From Scott Stephens of Keswick, Ontario on 9/24/2003.
I read it when it first came out in hardcover,was intrigued then, and am amazed now that muchof it has so quickly become plausible"mainstream" scientific theory. Should I moveto New Mexico soon?
The Coming Global Superstorm
From Inez of Hot Springs, Arkansas on 8/7/2003.
wow - scary. Everyone should read this book!
The Coming Global Superstorm
From Sandy Stacey of Seaforth, Nova Scotia on 6/8/2003.
I feel very strongly that this book is one of the most important books on the global issue of what is to come. I wish every one would read it. If this happened, there might just be enough of us to turn the future superstorm around. It saddened me the first time I read it, and yet I knew in my soul that it is all too true, past, present, and future.....Why, oh why, haven't we learned from our past?
The Coming Global Superstorm
From EJ of Dresden, Maine on 5/31/2003.
I found this book to be a thought provoking, fast paced, informative read. I also found myself becoming educated on the basics of meteorology. After completing the book it continues to stay in my thoughts as I watch the daily weather and ponder if I should move south! The only thing about the book I didn't enjoy was the fictional story intertwined between the non-fiction chapters, but that is probably because as a rule, I rarely read fiction at all.
From Bob Shrewsbury-Gee of Newmarket, Ontario on 5/16/2003.
This book may make for a few sleepless nights if you dwell on its finds. Hard science and some intelligent extrapolation makes for a truly scary scenario. Whitley and Art, two masters of their own mediums, team together to present possibly the most disturbing future scenario you will ever read about. The truly scary part is that it may already be too late to stop it.
