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.

    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!

    "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.

    "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

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Clive Mantle


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator was excellent however the story was full of unbelievable discrepancies and errors.

    "Great imagination"

    This book is a great couple of stories in one.
    I enjoyed the story lines and though a little adventurous I could see certain plots and enjoyed the way they played out. A good mind gripper right to the very end.

    "A compelling read....as good as you would expect"

    Another compelling story line which draws the reader onto the expected world of good v bad but prompts some thinking about the potential for this plot being a real threat in our world. The characters are believable and well defined and it is very hard to put down!!

    Another winner Mr Cussler.

    "another cracking read from this exciting author."

    I've read 15 books by Clive Cussler and they've all been good. This one is a great story and has a place on anyones list. There is no gratuitous sex as in a lot of stories, characters that are believable and you find yourself rooting for the good guys and hating the bad ones. Scott brick narrates with feeling, humour and keeps up a pace that enthralls the listener drawing you into the plot. For a story that takes the reader on a whirlwind tour of the worlds oceans and deserts chasing bad guys and incredible machines, this one is right up with the best.
