well this isnt really Sci-Fi at all, more of a geography lesson - near the end it becomes more sci-fi nou its not until the next book "Ark" that it becomes sci-fi
there is no back story to the characters and you have to get to know them as it goes on - starts off as flash floods overwhelm century old drainage systems, rich people will just ride off on one of AxysCorp CEO Nathan Lammockson's floating hotels and ride the storm out until the waters go down
it gets way worse after underwater lakes are filling up the oceans and in 2052 MT. Everest is covered with water
3 arks are build, although you only know about the 1st and 3rd one in this book, its the next book "Ark" that you find out what Ark 2 is - Ark 3 is a huge boat that looks like the Queen Mary and has a reactor as a power plant, after time it gets sink and they all go to rafts after that like everyone else out there - Ark 1 is a space ship that will take a select group of people and tones of genetic stuff from Earth to seed a new planet with life from Earth, it is not covered until the next book "Ark" - Ark 2 is an underwater habitat built in Yellowstone Park
the whole book is essentially 3 parts, the first 2 being a prologue to the book that follows called Ark, and the last part being oddly enough taking place near the middle of the second book Ark - if you read 1 and then had your mind wiped and read the other one you would like both equally and not think that either one needed an sequel or prequel
only reason it gets 4 stars not 3 is because how it ended, the middle sucks badly with the whole geography lesson or whatever, constantly naming off towns and cities as if I am sosposta know where they are and understand it, as if I know every part of the world - those parts are boring but the end is great
