Great story, different enough from the move to make it stand on it's own. better even in some ways.

Tornadoes, cyclones, tsunamis… Weather can be deadly – especially when it strikes without warning. Millions of Americans could soon find themselves at the mercy of violent weather if the public data behind lifesaving storm alerts gets privatized for personal gain. In his first Audible Original feature, New York Times best-selling author and journalist Michael Lewis delivers hard-hitting research on not-so-random weather data – and how Washington plans to release it.

Ancient cultures on continents separated by thousands of miles simultaneously developed identical technologies and legends containing identical descriptions of fiery objects and wise beings that arrived from the sky and brought them knowledge. Modern archaeology dismisses these legends as myths. Ethan Warner knows better. Living alone in the wilderness, Ethan is tracked down by Dr. Lucy Morgan, a scientist who once found the 7,000-year-old remains of an extra-terrestrial species.

The story was full of interesting ideas but the very choppy reading style was distracting enough to break the immersive quality of the book.
