Critical Mass by Whitley Strieber
However, I am currently just finishing a novel by Whitley Strieber, an author, broadcaster and seeker of truth, who makes my paltry attempts at explaining or exploring the unknown look downright foolish....and I have to tell you, it's been a page turner and I have enjoyed every page. The book is called Critical Mass
As I mentioned, Strieber is an American writer who has authored horror novels such as The Wolfen and The Hunger and non-fiction books like Communion, wwhich is an account of his perceived experiences with non-human entities.
I've always been a fan of Whitley Strieber, having first become familiar with him through his association with my favorite radio show of all time, Coast To Coast AM which unfortunately, I don't get on my local radio anymore...but I am digressing...
It's hard to be "critical" of Strieber's book that I am currently reading, Critical Mass, the story of a nuclear attack, although fictional, I think it tells an accurate story of what could happen if the wrong bombs fell into the wrong hands. It's been an entertaining read, so much so that I am now going to pass it on to my Father, who I think will enjoy it as well. It's one of those books that even though it is fiction, and you know it, you also know that the plot is not far from reality, and what could happen....what might happen....and the ramifications if it did happen. Strieber's writing style is fast paced, real, and the information feels accurate and researched, his descriptions are frightening in their realness, and the picture he paints is like looking at a painting by one of the masters of realism. No detail is ignored, no piece left out because it is too difficult to paint or in Strieber's case, to write. I know that when I put this one down, I will be looking for more books by Whitley Strieber.
