The Ark Storm is coming - a catastrophic weather event that will unleash massive floods and wreak more damage on California than the feared "Big One". One man wants to profit from it. Another wants to harness it to wage jihad on American soil. One woman stands in their way: Dr. Gwen Boudain, a brave and brilliant meteorologist.
When Boudain notices that her climate readings are off the charts, she turns to Gabriel Messenger for research funding. Messenger's company is working on a program that ionizes water molecules to bring rain on command. Meanwhile, Wall Street suits notice that someone is placing six-month bets on the prospect of an utter apocalypse and begin to investigate. Standing in the shadows is journalist Dan Jacobsen, a former Navy SEAL. War hardened, cynical, and handsome, Jacobsen is a man with his own hidden agenda.
Linda Davies's Ark Storm brings together the worlds of finance, scientific innovation, and terrorism in a fast-paced thrill ride that will leave listeners gasping.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I listened to this book over the holidays. It was a pleasant diversion. Like other listeners have noted however, it tends to repeat itself, and is more than a little contrived at the end, but on balance, it is ok.
Has Ark Storm turned you off from other books in this genre?
Off? Not at all. Perhaps this writer, but mega storm/end of times stories are always entertaining.
What does Corey Snow bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She definitely brought Gwen to life. And Dr. Messenger. A good listen.
Was Ark Storm worth the listening time?
So so. Mildly entertaining.
Any additional comments?
This is not a great book, but it does educate the listener on the topic ( abit too often at times) and on balance is worth a credit...but just barely.
