Meteor Storm Reviews
The David Capps novel, Meteor Storm is listed as a science fiction thriller, and indeed it is that. Yet if scientific imaginings and action thrills were all this book offered, I might not be submiting this review.
Our being close friends over many years, I can vouch that this author, David Capps, is anything but a mere science fiction writer letting a creative imagination run wild. True, if the potential reader loves real suspense thrillers, Meteor Storm certainly will not disappoint. If vicarious experiences of unbelievably imaginative -- yet genuinely workable -- applications of the physical laws of science and innovative engineering is one's thing, this book will more than satisfy.
If one just enjoys demonstrations of pure-hearted, heroic and selfless dedication to meeting and resolving critical, emergency needs, to the benefit and betterment of everyone affected, this book is definitely for you, as well.
And if, like me, the reader harbors grave concerns about some very real problems in today's real world, needing to understand why they persist, and learning how people of good heart the world over can work together to resolve them, this story will be most encouraging. For, through sheer altruism, Meteor Storm's best characters illustrate for us the resilience and ingenuity of the human mind and spirit to meet and rise above death-defying challenges, and, in this case, even while facing a threat of total life extinction.
Personally, I enjoyed seeing so much of the real person of David Capps come through the pages of this book. David Capps as gifted inventor, skilled and accomplished mechanical and electrical engineer, and -- best of all for me -- watching as an unobtrusive but ever solicitous moral/spiritual guide cares unconditionally for and about the needs of every life and every soul, each one viewed by him as “an individualized expression of God in material form.”
I've heard mention of a possible sequel to Meteor Storm, and am already looking forward to it.

This book was so well written, researched, constructed and developed that 5 Stars are just not enough! I loved the technical detail and the science involved that produced the most plausible and probable scenario that I have read in years! I am reminded of the first time I read Hunt for the Red October, by Tom Clancy. He was a phenomenon in his works and this book is just the same quality and intrigue mixed with current events that Clancy always managed to deliver.
The characters he created to bring everything together and build such a suspenseful plot and believable story line were so well drawn for us that you felt you knew each of them personally.
I do not like spoilers and will not speak on the story particulars for that reason. I will say that once you start reading Mr. Capps work you won’t be able to stop.
I actually was brought to tears at one point, the situation was so very realistic. I found myself clenching my teeth in dread and anticipation for what was happening. The broad scope of this book is part of what makes it so real to the reader.
If you want to be educated, thrilled and moved emotionally you want to grab this book and cling tightly.
I know everyone is going to love and rave about this book!

Too few of us are aware of the politics and technology of the world we live in today. In addition, few of us even realize the highly precarious position of the U.S. monetary/debt and how this inter-relates to our status as a world power.
It would be my recommendation that this finely written novel be a must read in High Schools across America the same as "1984" by Orson Wells was when I was in school!
This is a very well written and thought provoking "story."

This book was well written and on par with Tom Clancy. As a matter of fact, if you like Tom Clancy, you'll enjoy this book. There's enough technical data and thought behind everything to keep the more well-informed thinkers out there happy, while it wasn't so overloaded it would keep a more relaxed reader away. I would liken this book to a roller coaster ride. The excitement at the very beginning when you strap in to begin and then the climb to the top. During the climb, you get to meet all of the players and become invested in their lives and what's going on with them. You begin to feel for them because you know what's going to happen. Then, at the halfway point, hang on! You're not going to want to put the book down.
The author did a great job moving through the five different viewpoints that are represented in this book. He keeps you interested in what's going on and how it's going to affect everyone involved. The idea that the US government could possibly pull this off, and with such a massive retaliation from China, is realistic. We already believe the government is too big and can't keep track of itself and what one lone person might be able to do if he or she wields too much power with an object such as the HAARP.
My biggest complaint about this book is the ending. It could have ended sooner than it did. Outside of that, I enjoyed every minute of reading it and even cried a bit at the end. I don't do that often, so excellent job, DF Capps. This is definitely an author to keep an eye on in the future.

If you like non-stop adventure and lots of detailed action along with interesting characters with a different story line all rolled up in a very well written book, then this is the book for you. I have read another of Mr. Capps' novels and found that it and this kept me reading through the night to finish. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.

This book is a page-turner with lots of action and a well-crafted plot. It also provides food for thought. Consider the total wealth and total debt in the world and it is easy to speculate where all the money is being spent. I enjoyed this book very much.

Had a difficult time putting this book down and finished in two nights. Action packed with great characters. Highly recommend.
