The Sky Is Not Falling. The Water's Rising

It may not be global warming, but it is global and the water is rising.
The resulting action in the tectonic plates, and what may or may not lie beneath,
keeps this book’s pages turning of their own accord.
Flood, by Stephen Baxter is a good mix of hard science fiction
and big adventure novel with much to contemplate
scientifically and about the base nature of man.
We all see how we react to catastrophic events around the world.
Sometimes with a great outpouring of aid and succor,
other times with complete indifference to the suffering and death of others.
What do we do when the catastrophe is global?
Some scary speculation on how man will react.
Good story line, good character development, good read.
