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.

    sure


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

    love him


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

    yes, but depends on the ending


    Any additional comments?

    I spend about four hours per day on the road. Audio books make my commute go by much faster and make it somewhat enjoyable.

    Story
    "Wish I'd Skipped It!"
    What disappointed you about The Storm?

    Did not care for the story, and found the dialog trite and similar to a C-rated movie script!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Clive Cussler and Graham Brown again?

    Will not choose this author again.


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

    Not to my thinking. It was pretty much a waste of time. Did I learn anything? No. Did I experience anything new? No.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though I like Sci-Fi this book was not my cup of tea.

    Story
    "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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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