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.

    Story
    "Ice Station Zebra/Orca"
    Would you listen to Ice Hunt again? Why?

    Yes, it's got lots of creepy moments.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A smart action/adventure sliding down an icy weird twisty tunnel in the manic science of WWII plus a nice mix of some prehistoric horrific stalking creatures lurking about a forgotten secret military base in a floating iceberg/science lab.


    What does John Meagher bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good reading, good story telling. Key stuff.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Frozen horror thaws out... hungry!


    Any additional comments?

    Started a bit simple, thought it was going to be nothing new, but took on some good turns as it went. Nice to explore prehistoric monsters you don't hear much about: Killer whales with legs and claws and smarts like jungle cats stalking an eerie icy maze / WWII secret lab military base created by desperate powers - no one was guilt free when the world was destroying itself.

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

    Story
    "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.
