Arunachalam Bharathi
Very interesting read. Describes nature's wrath in all its glory, honestly reported by children, who witnessed the 2004 Tsunami in south east asia.
Robert Bone
Im really glad I read this book, as Ive never read a collection of short stories completly about the same topic before. I do admit I got a bit bored of reading this as the book went on as it became very predictable and there are so many ways you can describe terror or water, but even so, there are quite a few which stuck out over the rest that made me smile. Go and give this book a try, pick a random story and have a dive - who KNOWS what you might find! 3 stars
