As a modern book, it is woefully incomplete. Though thorough in it's accounts of the Great Storm of 1703, it completely lacks any modern scientific speculation or study on how a storm of this magnitude could come so far north. Nor did it try to trace the storms likely provenance as a tropical hurricane. It does not answer any more questions than did Daniel Dafoe's account. We could really use another modern perspective on the subject.

I have read many books about storms. it is one of my favorite topics. This book was extremely hard to follow. Most of the time I couldn't figure out what exactly this book was about. I couldn't finish it.... and I can only say that about 2 books. I think you would be better to spend your money else where.

Thoroughly enjoyable, well written and detailed. This book has been well researched and has plenty of eye witness accounts as well of explanations as to what happened and why
