Summary

Former naval doctor Peter Crane is urgently summoned to a remote oil platform in the North Atlantic to help diagnose a bizarre medical condition spreading through the rig. But when he arrives, Crane learns that the real trouble lies far below on "Deep Storm", a stunningly advanced science-research facility built two miles beneath the surface on the ocean floor. The top-secret structure has been designed for one purpose: to excavate a recently discovered undersea site that may hold the answers to a mystery steeped in centuries of myth and speculation. Sworn to secrecy, Dr. Crane descends to Deep Storm. A year earlier, he is told, routine drilling uncovered the remains of mankind's most sophisticated ancient civilization - the legendary Atlantis. But now that the site is being excavated, a series of disturbing illnesses has begun to affect the operation. As Crane is indoctrinated into the strange world of Deep Storm and commences his investigation, he begins to suspect that the covert facility conceals something more complicated than a medical mystery. The discovery of Atlantis might, in fact, be a cover for something far more sinister...and deadly.

Shades of The Abyss

I enjoyed this book, easy-listening storyline, and excellent interpretation by Scott Brick. Oil platforms, deep submersibles and a hint of aliens - make a good film!

scientific and technical flaws but enjoyable

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

The story itself is an interesting concept, easy to follow and enjoyable. Even though the story has several techical flaws it has unexpected twists and turns that keeps the listener interested and thirsty for more. The final twist, the answer the facilities been looking for from the start is such a thought provoking idea that you'll be thinking about it long after you have put the book down.

Sphere all over again

Sphere by Michael Crichton is one of my all time favorite books. This book managed to remind me of everything I loved about Sphere, without being a rehash of the same old stuff. It was interesting and intense, and kept me guessing until the end. Usually I have it all figured out well before the end of the book, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

deep storm or low rumble?

Where does Deep Storm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

it took me by surprise! It is not a book I think I would find myself talking about to my friends, but at no stage did I ever what to give up with the story. It was 13 hours of pure escapism which made my trip to and from work relaxing and interesting!

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

The very ending

Which scene was your favorite?

The way the story ended, sorry I don't want to ruin it for anyone!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

My God - it is full of stars!

Any additional comments?

If you are looking for something to keep you interested and happy in your long travels each day. This is a sure bet! If you are looking for something that will change your life, look elsewhere!
