Turtledove's prose is all over the place in this novel; it seems like he's trying to engage the younger generation by using text message acronyms. The story is mostly good and the characters, with a few exceptions, are interesting enough that you don't hate the perspective shifts.

Ultimately you'll be reading this book to hear about the supervolcano eruption and not about the members of the adult Ferguson family that are scattered across the country when Yellowstone erupts.

I'll probably read the next one in the series as the subject matter is very interesting to me, but the characters are flat and the prose is poor enough that this will go in the "guilty pleasure" bucket for me.
