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.

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.

An action packed Curt Austin book

I have found that most of the Austin books are a slower read than the Oregon Files and some other of CC's books. Don't get me wrong, I love them all and Clive Cussler is one of my very favorite authors. I think this is the most action packed Curt Austin book he has written. It is definitely worth a credit :) Scott Brick does his usual excellent job as narrator.You either love or hate his style. Personally I think he brings books to life.

Suspenseful as You Would Expect from Cussler

If you could sum up The Storm in three words, what would they be?

suspense, intrigue, wit

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Scott Brick is an excellent narrator. You think you're hearing different people's voices. He manages to keep the excitement and suspense alive.

Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

Joe Zavala and the whole Aswan dam incident.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The description of the things creating the storm were compelling. I enjoyed the inclusion of the Pain Maker and thought that was quite intriguing.

Any additional comments?

an enjoyable read

Great As Usual

If you could sum up The Storm in three words, what would they be?

Grabs and Holds

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Storm?

Too many memorable moments to allow me to single out just one!!

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the scene in the well where our heroes use an old tire in a really clever way.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I love these CC books. They never disappoint. I hold my breath, breathe a sigh of relief, then hold my breath again. Scott Brick makes the scenes and the characters come alive. I listen to these books in preference to watching movies.

Any additional comments?

So glad these new books become available at Audible. I know I'll not be disappointed any time I use a credit for a CC book. Great suspense, super action, and in general: Delicious "Brain Candy"

Another great NUMA novel!

What made the experience of listening to The Storm the most enjoyable?

First off - The Narrator! They don't get any better than Scott Brick. He is often the reason I will choose a certain title - He can bring the story 'ALIVE".

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Great plot and a new one for sure - Evil technology at it's best being pursued by Yemini Prince!

Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Always the best!


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Fascinating! After driving home I sat in the car in my Garage to complete a chapter.

Any additional comments?

Get it - You won't be sorry if you enjoy Clive and Fiction!

So so

Made me roll my eyes several times. Of the Cussler series Fargo and Oregon Files are my favorite. This is my first Numa book but it seemed lost without a place. I was bored several times and rolled my eyes several other. Back to Fargo next.

Typical Custler.

Gripping from start to finish even though we know the outcome before the story starts. It's fun.
Scott Brick does his usual fine narration.

Really Enjoyed the Book

very enjoyable but to listen to comma the only gripe I have about the book is that Leilani comes across as almost to naive and uninformed/unintelligent to be deemed an asset to the story
