The Waters Rising

The Waters Rising --by Sheri S. Tepper

498 pages
Footnotes/Endnotes: No
Illustrations: No
Suitable for eReaders: Yes

Rainy Day has long been a fan of Sheri S. Tepper, and while she enjoyed this book, she found it rather long in places. Ms. Tepper has both the imagination, and the ability to write it, that Rainy Day would die for. Of course, if she did, die for it, it wouldn't do her much good, would it?

The Waters Rising is a post-apocalyptic novel about global warming – and how people react to it. As villages, cities, forests, indeed civilizations, drown, a princess of the far north fights death with the help of a fearful girl child who becomes the savior of humankind aided by a motley crew of people and animals.

If you are a fan of Ms. Tepper, then I recommend this book; however, if you've never read her, there are, I think, better books out there with which to start.

  1. Not a fan of fantasy anyway, so will take your recommendation and "pass" on this book. Not a fan of apocalyptic outlooks either; have enuf angst just getting through today.
