Deep Storm | [Lincoln Child]

Deep Storm

Former naval doctor Peter Crane is summoned to a remote oil platform in the North Atlantic to help diagnose a bizarre medical condition. But when he arrives, Crane learns that the real trouble lies far below on "Deep Storm", a stunningly advanced science-research facility built two miles beneath the surface on the ocean floor. The top-secret structure has been designed for one purpose: to excavate a recently discovered undersea site that may hold the answers to an ancient mystery.

Publisher's Summary

Former naval doctor Peter Crane is urgently summoned to a remote oil platform in the North Atlantic to help diagnose a bizarre medical condition spreading through the rig. But when he arrives, Crane learns that the real trouble lies far below on "Deep Storm", a stunningly advanced science-research facility built two miles beneath the surface on the ocean floor. The top-secret structure has been designed for one purpose: to excavate a recently discovered undersea site that may hold the answers to a mystery steeped in centuries of myth and speculation.

Sworn to secrecy, Dr. Crane descends to Deep Storm. A year earlier, he is told, routine drilling uncovered the remains of mankind's most sophisticated ancient civilization - the legendary Atlantis. But now that the site is being excavated, a series of disturbing illnesses has begun to affect the operation. As Crane is indoctrinated into the strange world of Deep Storm and commences his investigation, he begins to suspect that the covert facility conceals something more complicated than a medical mystery. The discovery of Atlantis might, in fact, be a cover for something far more sinister...and deadly.

What the Critics Say

"Child delivers a well-crafted and literate science-fiction thriller." (Publishers Weekly)
"The story is imaginative and filled with wonder. Lovers of deep-sea adventure (and in particular fans of the James Cameron movie The Abyss or Michael Crichton's novel Sphere) will want to plunge into this one. (Booklist)

    "Melodramatic at Best"

    Deep Storm brings a creative story line that keeps the reader guessing but only for half of the book. The second half is very predictable and the author feels compelled to drag us through melodramatic descriptions of everything...including climbing the stairs.

    The first part of the download is great. Save your time and make up the ending. The time you spend on the second half could be spend better elsewhere.

    "Don't pay money for this."

    I found the story perdictable, uninteresting and just plain stupid. I just wanted the story to end. It was like a train wreck. I keep listening wondering if it could get worse. It didn't dissapoint in that regard. The main charcter is very weak. There is no character development. The author spends most of the time describing some trivial point in the story instead of building a plot. I will not listen any of Mr. Child's work again.

    "Average potboiler..."

    Deep Storm is not bad, but it is certainly not special. Even the great Scott Brick can't work enough magic to take what amounts to a version of Chrichton's "Sphere" (and Cameron's "The Abyss") and elevate it into great literature. The reveals at the end are creative, but they also feel disengaged from the main character's journey. We never really understand why THESE characters are in THIS novel... the action around them does not really seem to elucidate much about them. They seem deep enough to breathe and bleed, but not much more than that. It's a lightweight thriller with science fiction undertones, but it reinvents nothing.

    "Keeps you thinking"

    I fully enjoyed this audio, everything from the authors detailed descriptions which sometimes may seem a bit to much detail but I like that in a book it keeps the mind busy. A wonderful story of the deep abyss and what may lye at it's depths in Lincoln Child's story, if you are a fan of the novels or movies The Abyss or Sphere this should satisfy.

    This was my first Lincoln Child book and I look forward to reading or listening to more, I believe the narrator Scott Brick did a fantastic job and I have already purchased more audibles from Child/Preston narrated by Scott Brick.

    "Entertaining"

    An interesting premise, engaging story, decent narrator. Not much in the way of characterization or relationships, but still a good listen.

    "oops...forgot to mention...."

    I forgot to mention what a great narrator Scott Brick is. He does dialogue particularly well, and is a master of creating mood.
