Harry Turtledove is one of my favorite authors... but this series? Concept is interesting and the characters are as well. But the novel? It is horrible. Repetitive and poorly written. I can't believe that Turtledove wrote this. ( )

The follow up novel to [Harry Turtledove's] [Supervolcano: Eruption] was worth the read. The continuing story of the characters as they try in their own ways to survive was enjoyable.

[Supervolcano: All Fall Down] picked up right where [Eruption] left off. In the midst of this disaster the way [Turtledove] portrays his characters not as hero's out to save the world but as humans with all their faults makes the story more believable. It even has a serial killer mystery twist within the plot.

I definitely prefer my science fiction based on real science and not super natural. That is what [Turtledove] has produced so far with the two books from the [Supervolcano] series. I like my fantasy with a good does of reality in most cases. ( )

The effects of the Supervolcano under Yellowstone's eruption continue to play themselves out. The POV family tries to cope, and we are being set up for the collapse of the government of the USA, I think. ( )

I couldn't put the first book down, the second left a little to be desired but can be expected in a series. You may find you like following some characters over others and you will get a full picture of what life could be like when you read between the lines of the entertaining story. Turtledove mastery of weaving alt-hist. with story. I thought it was a little slow to get started due to his reintroduction of the characters, picked up in the middle and ended with me wanting to read the next book. Predictable toward the latter third you knew where he was going with the characters you just didn't know how he was going to get them there. Anxiously awaiting the third book to see how the story may end, completely hooked on this one. ( )
