Issac's Storm Reviews
"Torqued by drama and taut with suspense, this absorbing narrative of the 1900 hurricane that inundated Galveston, Tex., conveys the sudden, cruel power of the deadliest natural disaster in American history." - Publishers Weekly.
"More than anything, this is a gripping and heartbreaking story of what happens when arrogance meets the immutable forces of nature." - School Library Journal.
"This unforgettable work is highly recommended for both public and academic libraries." - Library Journal.
"Although the subject is grim, this telling is a deftly told fable of folly and fate." - Booklist.
"The sophisticated reader may find the emotionalism unsettling, a lapse in literary judgment. But ultimately, as the accounts of just such situations multiply thumping like Mr. Young's furniture at the reader's consciousness - that series of questions universalizes the account of one storm in one place at one time. The storm, the place, the time, after all, could be here and now." - The Boston Globe.
"The meteorological journal Weatherwise cited a host of what it deemed factual errors in Isaac's Storm, which didn't prevent it from giving the book a rave review." - Salon.
