Sometimes I felt like I couldn't breathe reading this. Larson does a great job giving the reader a sense of the devastation, but bringing it to a personal level. Also, this book made me want to buy a barometer.
The structure of this was similar to the movie Sliding Doors, which I really liked. I also liked that although this is a series (and I plan to read more), I was happy enough with the ending that it could stand alone.
