The D-day landings: the fate of 2.5 million men, 3000 landing craft, and the entire future of Europe depends on the right weather conditions on the English Channel on a single day. A team of Allied scientists is charged with agreeing an accurate forecast five days in advance. But is it even possible to predict the weather so far ahead?

    " Couldn't finish this one, I tried. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 12/24/2013

    " I want to understand turbulence. I thought that because I enjoyed The Last King of Scotland I would also enjoy this. I didn't really, and I still don't understand turbulence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Venuskitten | 12/12/2013

    " Cambridge graduate Henry Meadows is recruited to find a reliable way of guaranteeing good weather for the D-day landings during the Second World War. Gripping and realistic, with 3-D characters and highly original and fascinating subject matter. Unmissable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lenore | 11/25/2013

    " Interesting. Foden is a better comic than Scientist "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard | 2/7/2013

    " I found some of the action a bit far-fetched but the writing style was nicely transparent. The sketching of the characters was good but the ending was a bit limp. The book is for those with a bit of interest in weather and WWII. Overall I enjoyed it but would question some of the rave reviews. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob Rosenow | 10/7/2012

    " Just enough science to give structure to the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 9/9/2012

    " Another good story from Giles Foden - incorporating weather forcasting, D-Day and english eccentricity! Very enjoyable! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lori | 8/12/2012

    " very wordy, excessively so. couldn't warm up to the characters. thought about not finishing it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Wehrly | 7/25/2011

    " Would be a fine read, except that it is a pale shadow of the wonderful "C" by Tom McCarthy, which deals with science and discovery during the first world war. Needs more character development and less laborious mentions of turbulence as a scientific subject. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen Groves | 6/30/2011

    " Boring...unless you are into the science of weather. It felt like the plot was a vehicle for the author to go on about his knowledge of weather. I was hoping for a good world War II story about D-Day, with some weather, but got bored fast. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carey | 8/13/2010

    " Well written but often too technical and boring for me and the ending was pretty limp. I found it difficult to get too worked up about the story, however, as the date for D-Day is so well known as was the weather on the day! "
