Love books, all kinds, all shapes, all formats! Audiobooks have made my daily commute so much less stressful! Major fan of Audible.
Enjoyed the very detailed and elaborate descriptions of the undersea facility - Lincoln Child did this well in UTOPIA and did it excellently in DEEP STORM.
I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that the plot line is a bit familiar, but I disagree in their thinking that that detracts from the book. After all, the best stories I know are also some of the most predictable, and they often follow the same time-tested paths to the end.
I admit, though, that this one had trouble pulling me in. With some of Child's other novels, I was pulled in right away, but this one needed some more time. Once I was hooked, however, I was hooked pretty well.
And there were some interesting twists, but they were subtle character or relationship surprises more so than major plot twists, which I actually appreciate more.
And I found the true nature of what they found under the sea to be unique and imaginative, and I really enjoyed the final interpretations by some of the characters.
I continue to be a reader of Child's and of his collaborations with Preston, and I've never been disappointed. Deep Storm may not be my favorite of Child's novels, but it was an enjoyable listen and more thought provoking than it appears on the surface.
This is a typical Child's adventure with an original twist and a double take at the end. I thought it much superior to the last book in his trilogy, "Book of the Dead". The story has good characterization and is hard to put down. I did wonder how the lovable Dr. Flite could wander around without showing up on any of the high security employee lists, but what the heck.
Lincoln Child has another mystery with a twist, just the right mix of villan and environmental danger. The narrator is excellent, good voice and command.
This is an ok story. The concept is interesting but the characters are underdeveloped and the science is shaky at best.
I'm not sorry I bought the book but He's written better.
Lincoln Child's Deep Storm was a great listen. It is up there with the Baldacci's and other thrillers. You won't be disappointed.
