Ice Hunt Audiobook

Ice Hunt

Carved into a moving island of ice twice the size of the United States, Ice Station Grendel has been abandoned for more than 70 years. The twisted brainchild of the finest minds of the former Soviet Union, it was designed to be inaccessible and virtually invisible. But an American undersea research vessel has inadvertently pulled too close - and something has been sighted moving inside the allegedly deserted facility, something whose survival defies every natural law.

Publisher's Summary

Carved into a moving island of ice twice the size of the United States, Ice Station Grendel has been abandoned for more than 70 years. The twisted brainchild of the finest minds of the former Soviet Union, it was designed to be inaccessible and virtually invisible. But an American undersea research vessel has inadvertently pulled too close - and something has been sighted moving inside the allegedly deserted facility, something whose survival defies every natural law.

And now, as scientists, soldiers, intelligence operatives, and unsuspecting civilians are drawn into Grendel's lethal vortex, the most extreme measures possible will be undertaken to protect its dark mysteries - because the terrible truths locked behind submerged walls of ice and steel could end human life on Earth.

    Tell us about yourself! Hated reading books. It wasn't till I found audible that I found how great books can be.

    "Left me in the cold"

    A Ho Hum book. Not good but not bad enough to return. James Rollins has written far better books. It's like he was under pressure to write something and this was the result.

    Ice Hunt is a fun distraction. If you are looking for escapism then this is for you.

    "Good Story"

    I enjoyed the story, it was fun to hear and the ending was perdictable but good.
    Just have to get used to listening to the narrator John Meagher's voice is a bit "lite" but over-all I enjoyed it.

    "I could not finish it"

    I love audible, I have hundreds of books and I rarely ever give up, this one beat me. The narration is boring, the plot old, the characters dull, the pace slow.

    "NOT a good Rollins book, way too improbable"

    ice station zebra etc. US v. russia and so forth, too many inaccuracies to list, one example is the creatures almost magical bullet resistance from rifles, umm NO WAY, Delta Force commandos are stereotypically rough and ready robots, etc., long list of alleged US experimentation abuses are supposed to be in comparison to Nazis and Japanese in WW2, PLEASE STOP MAKING RIDICULOUS COMPARISONS! the poor native peoples, blah blah, rollins gets waaaay too preachy in the end

    "Entertaining with a nice ending"

    This was my John Rollins book and I found it very entertaining. It was bit predictable in a few places but I still enjoyed listening to it. I always enjoy stories that include dogs and this was no exception.

    I enjoyed it enough that I have already started listening to Amazonia by John Rollins.

    "Cold Enough for You?"

    If you are stuck on an iceberg for sixteen hours with nothing else to read, this rather silly book might be okay. However, the multiple chases among the bad Russians, bad Americans, good Russians (not really good, but somewhat better than bad), good Americans, and completely bad, walking- whale creatures become rather tedious. Mr. Rollins other work, Amazonia, which is set in a warmer clime was better.

    "Couldn't finish it"

    I really wanted to finish it, not really sure why, but I couldn't, and I became upset with myself for trying to make myself finish it, so I eventually just stopped about 3/4 through accepted the wasted credit, and moved on. I just found it boring and uninteresting.
