Mount Doomsday Oct 3, 2006
I found Dr. Donald A. Berman's novel, Mount Doomsday, to be an easy, entertaining read. The story of a radioactive volcano erupting in present-day time is interwoven with short chapters about the earth's volcanic history as viewed from the inhabitants affected by volcanic disasters. I found this effect to be successful in building up to the conclusion of the story. This is an entertaining, exciting story that is definitely worth reading!
Mount Doomsday- A real thriller Dec 16, 2005
Having written two novels myself, I was excited about reading one from another Florida author. Don Berman has a meticulously researched fast paced engaging story about a radioactive volcanic eruption and presents a scenario that is as captivating as the title. It is a fast paced,provocative read and I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Best book I've read in years Dec 11, 2005
Don Berman has constructed a page turner on par with Dan Brown's "Da Vinci Code." The weaving storyline and the suspense driven plot create an exhilarating journey for any reader. Berman has shed light on the gloomy possibility of a disaster stemming from both natural and man-made events. The recent disaster in New Orleans has demonstrated just how dead on Berman was in predicting the shortcomings of modern engineering when nature decides not to cooperate. This disaster story is incredible because the scenario it presents is a real possibility. Berman did a great job of researching a couple of thousand years of volcanic disasters in order to make his fictional story come to life and make the possible seem inevitable. Nearly unfathomable volcanic disasters have occurred in the past, Berman is asking his readers to think; why couldn't it happen now? By tying man-made nuclear technology in with mother nature's fury, Berman has devised the ultimate disaster/horror story. This makes the scenarios of the Cold War seem like child's play. Any reader is going wonder why nobody had ever thought of this before. There could not be a worse fate awaiting humankind than the one Berman imagined in this book. The scary part is, this book is as much science as it is science-fiction.

I read the Book, Mount Doomsday, and was very impressed with it. I loved the way the author blended the present story with historical facts that explained the underlying geographical issues. This book could predict a future headline story on CNN. It was very interesting
I couldn't put this book down once I started and I am looking forward to the sequel.
