Publisher's Summary

In the middle of the Indian Ocean, a NUMA research vessel is taking water samples at sunset when a crew member spots a sheen of black oil ahead of them. But it is not oil. Like a horde of army ants, a swarm of black particles suddenly attacks the ship, killing everyone aboard, while the ship itself goes up in flames.

A few hours later, Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala are on their way to the Indian Ocean. What they will find there on the smoldering hulk of the ship will eventually lead them to the discovery of the most audacious scheme they have ever known: a plan to permanently alter the weather on a global scale. It will kill millions... and it has already begun.

Filled with the boundless invention unique to Clive Cussler, this is one of the most thrilling novels yet from the grand master of adventure.

    "Another Good Cussler Novel"
    What made the experience of listening to The Storm the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoy the talents of Scott Brick as he reads the book and brings the characters to life.


    What other book might you compare The Storm to and why?

    The other Cussler "NUMA Files" novels are similar to this one


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

    His talents for giving each character their own personality and voice, really helps the listener follow the story and understand what's going on.


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

    IDK

    "one of Cussler's best to date"

    This audio book kept me on the edge of my seat. I was fascinated by the concept, and just a little bit frightened of the plausibility.

    What did you love best about The Storm?

    Another wonderful, improbable Cussler story!! If you like NUMA stories you should love this one. Probably too close to someday reality.

    Clive Cussler has never written a book I didn't love to the finish. Great job!

    "The Storm"

    The Storm was a slow starter unlike Clive Cusslers other books. It seemed it did not pickup until the middle of the book. Once it started it was action packed. Mr. Cussler is a writer that thinks outside the box with twists and turns you can't imagine. I don't know how he comes up with his ideas but they are great.

    Story
    "Clive (Crank 'em Out!) Cussler. Ho hum."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    OKay. Not Great Fiction, basic Cussler action adventure. Not bad. But, do I remember it a day later? Nope. Feels like he's cranking out these adventure tales without real passion anymore.


    Has The Storm turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. It was mostly what I expected.. maybe a tad less.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Scott Brick?

    sure.


    Could you see The Storm being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Oh it could be a TV movie of the week. No one big...


    Any additional comments?

    Clive Cussler has written a LOT of adventure books. A Lot. A Shoot-load. A mountain. A vast amount of pulp action... and this one is a light , fun, read (listen) with out much to make you think too hard, and nothing to keep you remembering it later. Is he just cranking them out now? Gosh, I dunno... maybe... Is his heart and passion fully engaged in this one? Maybe not. It's...not bad, but not great.

    "Yeah finally a new Kurt Austin book with substance"

    Wow, this book was worth the wait. The past couple Kurt Austin books have not been as good as some in the past or Dirk books. But this one is very well done, Kurt and Joe and the trouts go it alone. lots of good adventure and fun stuff as always. Thank you Mr Cussler for putting some time into this book and not just pumping out another one. Scott Brick is the voice of audio books, by far the best and I would love an opportunity to meet him some day. As a Public Address Announcer I can announce a sporting game but I cant imagine what it takes to have the voice and ability to deliever such a great read time and time again. / J Evans columbus Ohio

    "no plot -- lots of action that is unbelievable"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    isnt the day of the super hero finally over


    Has The Storm turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes, finally. Looking for story lines now and intricate plots -- not one disastor after another in which you already know the hero wins the day


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Scott is good ... nothing


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    well it wasnt worth my time
