Publisher's Summary

A young girl, Andrea Jamieson, loses her father, who is trying to rescue a neighbor during a hurricane. She grows up to become a hurricane ''hunter'' and, through her own efforts and those of her husband and colleagues, accidentally creates the largest hurricane in history. Then it disappears in the Devil's Triangle. So does her husband, flying over the storm to drop Silver Iodide crystals into the eye.
Then, 30 years later, the storm - and the plane - are back. Andrea has a new weapon, a series of pumps, that might stop or divert the storm, but there's little time, and all she really wants to do is track that plane that's been gone so long - and reunite with her long-lost husband.

What the Critics Say

"Tugging heartstrings with the expertise of a master puppeteer, Wilson, a former naval technician, adds plenty of authentic touches but never overwhelms the reader with details. The clean prose, romance and fantasy elements, heart-pounding scenes of man against nature, and topical currency (thankfully not overplayed) will appeal to a wide variety of readers."

Hurricanes

Where does The Mote in Andrea's Eye rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Over the years I have read and listened to many books which fall into the categories excellent, which I could listen to again, very good, mediocre and boring. This comes under the heading of a good book. as the narrator spoiled it for me.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mote in Andrea's Eye?

When phil wicks flew over a hurricane and the author described the hurricane beneath him for the first time.


Would you listen to another book narrated by Karyn O'Bryant?

This narrator was not to my taste. Her delivery seemed slow at times. the pace of the book carried her through as her speed improved in keeping with the story.. I would not seek her out in the future.


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

yes, although describing it would mean spoiler alerts for future readers..


Any additional comments?

The opening paragraphs of this book had a lot of needless description in my opinion, but after the description of the first hurricane, which was really good the book became engrossing. The hurricanes are the star of this book, followed by Andrea and Phil.
