Just finished The Wind From Nowhere by J. G. Ballard.
Basically a strange wind comes out of the blue and keeps on accelerating until its travelling about 250 mph, the people having to build shelters underground. This is Ballard's first novel from 1961. I've read in the past two of his books from the 60s but this is quite a simple book compared to say The Drowned World. I felt this book concentrated too much on the characters- I'd have like to have seen the environment explored further. And then at the close of the book it just ends!
Not bad but lacking depth.
