Book Review-Freezing Point-Karen Dionne

Friday, August 30, 2013

This is another book that I purchased from Amazon. As some of you may realize I have an environmental science degree (with the emphasis on science rather then politics). So when I saw this book advertised by one of the great book bloggers out there I knew I just had to have it--

This is a fictional novel-but could easily happen. When corporate greed and "environmentalists" collide all hell can break loose with neither of them considering the total ramifications of their actions. This is a cautionary tale which it behooves everyone to paid heed to. Yes, you should read this-it is a fast reading book and I think you will actually enjoy it.

I think that I will be reading more of this author's work in the very near future!

About the E-Book (from Karen Dionnes Website)



The polar icecaps are melting – fast.

In a drowning, desperate world, the Soldyne Corporation sees an opportunity: Melt Antarctic icebergs into drinking water using their microwave satellite array, ship the water to thirsty nations around the globe, and make a fortune.

But deep within the ice waits an enemy more deadly than anyone could imagine—and an apocalyptic horror Earth may not survive.

Includes an excerpt from BOILING POINT by K. L. (Karen) Dionne.

This book can be purchased at Amazon

Oooh! This sounds really good! Funny how someone can always find a way to monopolize on every situation.

Corinne Schmitt said...

Sounds like a thrilling read! Great review. Thanks for the recommendation.

I enjoyed the book review, but I think I enjoyed learning about your degree more than anything. I just realized I'm always stopping by, and I don't know much about the lady behind the blog! :)

Wow what a story! I would love to see this as a movie, I bet it would be thrilling. That's crazy that there are thirsty nations and a business wanted to profit. Unfortunately this does sound like something that could happen in the future but let's hope not.
