    1. I was lucky enough to discover this author on the sale table a few years ago because his excellent books are unfortunately out of print. This one was over 30 years old when I picked it up, and aside from a few dated pop culture references and a lack of cell phones, the story was timeless.The driving force behind this story is: what happens in a culture of sun worshippers when the sun goes away? The book begins with a slew of Californians going about the business of their lives during an unusual [...]

    2. I bought this book from a bookseller on because it is out of print. I used to love Gerald A. Browne in the 70s/80s and this book is very readable and interesting.This is a short book or long short story. This book was written in 1976 but it could take place now except for the fact that there are no cellphone, iphones, ipads,voice mail or even answering machines mentioned in the book. The author talks about a woman dragging her phone with the coiled cord out to her pool so that she won't miss an [...]

    3. Another thriller from Browneis time he tackles the aftermath of an earthquake and mudslides particularly in regards to those trapped in a supermarket. Who, if any, will escape the rising mud that kills without remorse?

    4. I am a fan of Gerald Browne's work, but this is not one of his better efforts. There were incongruities in the story, and the ending was abrupt. If this is the first Gerald Browne you have read, don't give up on him. Check out Hot Siberian, Stone 588, or 18mm Blue.

    5. I stopped reading after the slide. I read before bed and I knew it would give me bad dreams, so I stopped. I did like the way the characters were set up to be in the store.

    6. Compared to the other titles by the author that I've read, this is disappointing. Since Mr. Browne also did work in films I wondered if this was originally a screenplay for a disaster move.
