It is time for the Northwest United States to pack their ‘go bags’! When Buzz Bernard writes a novel, you can bet he has done his research and writes from authority. From Northern California to Vancouver, people best be at peace with Jesus because the tsunami is really due. In the story, when everyone thinks Rob is nuts, scoffs and ridicules him, that is when you hear God saying, “Get out!” He sent His messenger(s), whether Rob believed it or not. I have loved every one of Buzz’s books—EYEWALL, PLAGUE, SUPERCELL, and BLIZZARD. When you read one, you must have them all. CASCADIA will heighten your awareness and make your heart race for sure. You will not put it down.

This is a book that will absolutely captivate the reader especially if they live in the Pacific Northwest, fly in small aircraft or love the beauty of the coast of Oregon and Washington. The author tells the story of a geologist doing his research, sharing with his son how they know the PNW will experience the "big one" anytime. Then the geologist has a repetitive dream of the earthquake and resulting tsunami which appears to take place on July 4th. A former fighter pilot flies to Oregon from Atlanta to apologize to a former friend and has a longer stay than planned on the coast of Oregon. The Neakanie Treasure which has never been found and the treasure hunter who has searched for years all are all wound into the story and hold your attention as the countdown for July 4th takes place. You will experience the results as you read and you will most likely be holding your breath as the events unfold.

I admit to being a fan of Buzz Bernard's suspenseful novels, and I had no disappointment with "Cascadia." The author has no reluctance to destroy things dear to him geographically...his debut novel "Eyewall" mangled St. Simons Island (home of a writers conference over which Buzz will preside the next couple of years), followed by "Plague" in which a madman plans to release the Ebola virus into Buzz's own neighborhood. Now he brings a tale of massive destruction to his native Pacific Northwest in an event he drills into us as something that WILL happen (but who knows when?). While Bernard spins his weather expertise into another suspenseful climax, it's the characters he creates that make all his books come to life. In this case, it's a man willing to put his career on the line over a dream that he "just knows" is more than a dream. Despite caveats from his wife and almost everyone else (save one religious counselor), he goes public with his prediction and receives the expected sneers of derision which multiply when his correct vision was incorrectly predicted time-wise. Reluctantly courageous, protagonist Rob emerges from the battle with battle scars, which are far less than those inflicted by Mother Nature on the Pacific Coast. You might need to suspend disbelief a bit on the outcome of some of the secondary characters, namely Shack, but don't miss this great read.
5,0 su 5 stelleA strong story with interesting people dealing with nature run amok!

Yes this book, like the others by this author has a catastrophe. Given that assumption, this book has a number of interesting people who are challenged to deal not only with the catastrophe, but the relationships between them. The book has a lot of action, but not much conflict. Pure adventure aficionados will find that it is fast moving and cleverly contrived to test the 'heroes' , but satisfying in the end. I particularly liked the Author's notes because they helped make the places, and science work for readers not familiar with them. Great read. Keep up the good writing Buzz!

being familiar with the northwest I found this read to be very accurate in describing the area. the story was excellent and well written and the characters were well developed and you could connect with them. fast paced and very hard to put down. I was always looking to see what was going to happen next. Excellent reading.

I live here, and I feel he really got the folks pretty close. The terrain and urgency of the action fits so perfectly. Really enjoyed the book and it scared the hell of out me. Gave copies to relatives in the Portland area and told them to prepare. I have a "go bag" and built my first one in 2002. Nice lite and compact items available now. Dried beans still heavy.
