When I couldn't find a job that year, I spent a long, lazy summer on the screened porch of my family's summer cottage in 1976, reading just about every scfi novel our town's little store-front library had to offer. This was one of them. ...along with a class in meteorology, it has fueled my love of severe weather ever since. And while inarguably not Ben Bova's greatest work, "The Weathermakers" still tops the list of some of my perennial favorites and cemented his place as one of my favorite scfi authors. Whether you agree or not, it is still a fun novel and a good read. Ahhh... those were the days when I didn't have a care in the world... except what book to read next!
A solid effort from Dr. Bova. His characters have managed a way to control the weather, or at least the worst of it. What happens when government and military forces take notice?
Read this in Analog in serial form. We all listen to weathermen on television, but all they can do is talk about the weather on the way. This book asks a good question: what if we could control and change it? The answer is the story.
I'm guessing that this book is a reprint of his 1973 'Weathermakers'. I have been a Bova fan for a long time and have always enjoyed reading his books. The concept and characters that are determined to control the weather was initially intriguing. Unfortunately it wasn't enough to sustain the book the whole way through. Having read most of his works I was disappointed. If this had been the first Ben Bova book I ever read I probably wouldn't have finished it let alone buy any other of his works. I kept waiting for the book to pick up but it never did. The 'Weathermakes' was only slightly better than boring, it just fell flat overall. On the plus side his ability to see how the future of technology would unfold forty years before cell-phones and flat screens is always amazing.
Good story line, believable characters, believable plot given the assumptions. Ironic how some of the old science fiction guesses about future technology came close to the truth while others are still far off.
Classic that just gets better as time goes by.
This book was written in 1966-1967. The books back cover review states:

"Ted Marrett knows how to do things with the weather, important things such as bringing rain to drought stricken agricultural areas. And as soon as he does, the Pentagon decides that weather control should be a classified military project...". There is more, but you get the drift. The novel is 250 pages long.

With no spoilers, this book details the beginning of weather issues and science often taken for granted later on in his later works. The novel can have taken place today, (realizing that the book is written in the 60's), and deals with a topic not often covered in science fiction. The book itself is fast paced, well documented, and an excellent read. For Bova fans, this is a much read. The characters are well defined, very believable, and as usual, the book while having a distinct ending, is well ripe for follow ups.

Excellent book, one of my favorites.
Ted Marrett is a brilliant young meteorologist who has one goal: To see humanity turn weather control into a reality...and, along with several friends who stick with him through just about everything, he will do anything to accomplish that goal.

The Weathermakers is a fine early novel (written in the mid-1960s) from Ben Bova... a master of "modern-day" and near-future science fiction. Despite having been written more than forty years ago, Bova displays the clear knowledge and mastery he has of the physical world in this novel and which shows up again and again in subsequent novels.

The Weathermakers is recommended to anyone who enjoys Bova's works or is looking for a solid piece of science fiction.
