I won this book from Goodreads first reads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.

There are many strong points to this book. First, it is completely obvious to me that this author knows her storms and tornadoes. These images pop from the page, and anything to do with storm watching is completely believable. I feel like I am right there watching the storm next to the characters. She writes very well and her descriptions are lush and many times beautiful. I really liked the protagonist, Judy, a

Being a storm chaser is exciting, challenging, and completely terrifying even for a seasoned professional. When Judy takes her small town photography career up a notch and moves from weddings to tornadoes anything may come blowing her away. More than something does happen when Judy meets Jack; the best in the storm chasing business passion for their work takes on a new meaning.

Jack shows Judy how to not only capture the photograph, but also recreate on film the intense emotion delivered with eac

I won this book from goodreads giveaway....
I loved that it was not all about storm chasing. It has a romantic plot as well. I liked the characters, and I think the author developed the characters well. The writing was good. It was easy reading. No convoluted plots, sub-plots, too-large cast of characters to keep track of. Just the story, i like that. The way she described the scenery, almost made me want to take a trip to Kansas, which isn't exactly an exotic vacation destination, but the way s

Ever wonder what motivates people to drive hundreds of miles around the Prairies to chase tornadoes, lightning, and other significant weather? If so, Funnel Vision by Chris Kidler, with its superbly written storm sequences, helps explain. Some of the characters in this novel do it for money, others for science, but they all seek the ultimate thrill, the “stormgasm.”

They were less than a mile away, and the view was so clear, it almost didn’t feel real. As her video rolled, Judy snapped a few shot

I’m always bummed when a book that I was looking forward to reading didn’t quite live up to the hype that I had placed on it. For me, Funnel Vision was one of those books. I have to admit, that since Twister, came out when I was in high school, I have been intrigued by storm chasers and what they do, and even considering getting into meteorology at one stage (unfortunately, my science grades in college were just not good enough). So when this book was offered up by the author in one of my goodre ...more

Recommended to Lyn (Readinghearts) by: Sisterhood of the Traveling Book and Chris Kridler
Having grown up in Missouri on the outskirts of tornado alley, I have always been fascinated by both the storms that produce tornadoes, and of late, the people who put themselves in the path of these storms. No surprise, then, that I jumped at the chance to read Chris Kridler's novel about storm chasers. Although Funnel Vision is Ms. Kridler's debut novel, she is no stranger to writing. I am always interested to see how well an established journalist can transition to the world of fiction. In th ...more

OK, let me say that I am not a romance girl...at all! However, this book is what I love about indie authors. This book was unique in that it was inside the heads of storm chasers (something I put up their with sky diving-fascinating, but why would I put myself in the path of a storm). So, I found the supporting scenes fascinating and it really kept my interest going in the book. I must admit that the romance I could have taken or left, but the author wrote it in such a fashion, that it didn't be ...more
