Publisher's Summary

The sixth book in James Clavell's epic Asian Saga tells the story of three weeks in Tehran in February 1979 - three weeks of passion, self-sacrifice, and heartbreak.

When the shah is thrown out of Iran, the nation's turmoil becomes world headlines. Caught in this shifting world of fanaticism, ambition, duplicity, and violent death are the foreign helicopter pilots who have been servicing the oil fields up and down the country. Their one objective is to make a bold, concerted escape to safety across the Gulf.

    "An exciting, nail nibbling adventure."
    Would you listen to Whirlwind again? Why?

    I will listen again to clarify the characters and their roles. It is a lengthy listen with numerous characters and relatively complex plot. A second listen will sort out a bit of confusion.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Whirlwind?

    A nail biting escape from Iran, but it was not a moment it was frustratingly slow. I wanted to tell them they had to get a move on or they would be discovered. The suspense was brilliant.


    Have you listened to any of Derek Perkins’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    This was my first encounter with Derek Perkins. His performance was unquestionable. In fact I would not have continued with another less able reader. It took about 20 chapters before I became totally hooked and couldn't put the book down. I would have found it a hard book to read but Derek Perkins performance was compelling.

    Story
    "Excellent Adaption"
    Would you listen to Whirlwind again? Why?

    No, but only because its so long, its a great performance


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Gorgon Khan, as always there is an orchestra of bombastic characters and he was one of the best


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Hard to Choose, but I like the early scence setting set up which contrasts with the chaos of the revoloution later


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I've never stayed awake that long in my life


    Any additional comments?

    I read most of Cavell's books while backpacking as a youngster, but didn't finish this. It's hard to concentrate while working on something so long. A great read that does the story true justice
