Mote in Andreas Eye
Reviews: 7
Weathering Hurricane Isabel*, a couple of what ifs, one very cogent observation about the Bermuda Triangle, and reams of research became David Niall Wilson's "The Mote In Andrea's Eye." The Wilson's 100-year-old family home came through that most destructive of 2003 storms with minimal damage but left a deep impression on the family. The observation about the Bermuda Triangle followed and the what ifs led to the research.

When Andrea Jamieson, loses her father to a hurricane in 1942* during World War II, she develops a lifelong obsession with hurricanes and ways to stop them to avenge her father's death. The tale touches three major parts of Andrea's life after 1942. In 1963, appropriately educated to take on her chosen task, she works with a specialized hurricane study group called Operation Stormfury.* Andrea intends to stop hurricanes in their tracks and save others from the heartrending loss she suffered as a child, But with the war in Southeast Asia ramping up, the government feels it needs the resources assigned to Andrea's group more than she does given the crackpot aim of Stormfury's mission. Her plan is to seed the forward wall of the hurricane with silver iodide pellets,* and the captain of her flight of four planes is one Captain Phillip Wicks, a navy pilot about to be put out to pasture. He knows this is his last assignment and it turns out to be a doozy. 1976 finds Phil and Andrea married and in the storm business together. Keith Sharf is added to the mix with his theory that coating the ocean in front of the oncoming hurricane with oil will prevent a storm from accessing the warm water it needs for forward motion and increased strength. Again, Phil takes the team into the storm with more disastrous results than his 1963 flight. In 2006 Andrea and her team have come up with something completely different - a major "what if," and here I leave the readers to find out for themselves how things come out.

Mote is the type of book I like to read; a good story that keeps you turning the pages, informative, coherent, and free of gratuitous sex, violence and profanity. As always, Wilson builds his characters and plot line with meticulous care giving us a reason to care about Andrea, what she is trying to do and making it very believable. The story seems to sag a bit toward the end of the middle, but it might just be that proverbial "calm before the storm" as Wilson takes us into Andrea's slam-bang, heart-racing last run at a monster of a hurricane. It was a heck of a ride I took two times and it didn't let me down with the second reading.

*Some fun stuff to research on the Internet for those with a streak of curiosity as wide as mine.
The mark of of a good book, for me, is the drive to continue reading. David Wilson skillfully draws the reader into the srory with vivid imagery and likeable characters. Other reviewers have accurately given a synopsis of the book, so I don't feel compelled to recap the plot. I don't agree with the reviewer who felt it took a hundred pages to connect with the characters. They were alive from the beginning.

This is my first read by Wilson, but I intend to find them all.
Tyler Is Not Here
When Andrea is young, she and her parents are caught in a hurricane, while they barely survive it, it's when her dad tries to rescue her neighbour in the aftermath, that she loses him. From that moment on, she was fixated with the idea of trying to stop a hurricane! Years later, while researching a promising way to stop the hurricane, her husband and his men, unintentionally create the largest hurricane in history, but while most of her colleagues return safely, the hurricane, along with Andreas husband, disappear in the "Devils Triangle". Heartbroken, Andrea keeps trying to find a way to stop the hurricanes from hitting land, or at least, slow them down! 30 years pass and Andrea is getting data that seems to confirm that a massive hurricane is forming exactly where the last one was! Everything points to it being the exact same as the one years earlier, one that will devastate the country. Along with a weird transmission from the hurricane, she believes this is the one that vanished 30 years ago, the one that vanished her husband too!!

At first I expected this to be like the movie "Twister" but with hurricanes, since the blurb said, Hurricane Hunter! But it's not! This is more a detailed look at hurricanes and Andreas life trying to change them so other people never have to lose a loved one! While not being very fast paced, I still enjoyed this. Even with it being Fiction, it was still fascinating following Andrea and her team and learning all about hurricanes.

Andrea was a worthy heroine, she was focused, smart and not afraid to take the necessary risks to try to save people. Her husband, Phil was also an awesome character, though we didn't see much of him! Both were well written, though not as developed as I would of liked.

In all this was a good read. It wasn't very fast paced but still enjoyable. It made me realise how lucky I am to live in Ireland since we don't have extreme weather like that. Hurricanes are deadly!!! If you like an adventurous detailed tale of hurricanes, then this is for you :)

Karyn O'Bryant did a good job narrating this. She was clear and concise and read the story well, though her male voices weren't the best! She needed to lower her tone a little more.

*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*
