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.

    "Another good numa story"

    Just like the previous 12 books. Very entertaining. Curt, Joe, and the Trouts all had their own action packed stories intertwined.

    "Good"

    Good book by one of my favorite authors. Well narrated although would have been better with a woman doing the female character parts.

    "Never disappointed with this series!"

    My intro to Clive Cussler was Kurt Austin back in 1997 and I've been hooked ever since. Must read books.

    I am an artist, lover of books. Love reading or listening to a good book. I live on the East Coast of Canada with an awesome ocean view.

    "Good read, interesting plot"
    Where does The Storm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Many Cussler books are easy to follow as the pattern is the same in all of them. Every now and then he throws in a few surprises.

    Story
    "abrupt ending"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    either i did not download the entire book (2 sections) or this story just abruptly ends. what a disappointment.


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

    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?

    am i missing part of tbe book? sure seems like it.

    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.
