    What a wonderful book. It had a great story line, half action thriller- half sci-fi, and kept you at the edge of your seat. But the best was the characters in the book, especially the hard working stoic Mainers. Another highlight for me were the chapters about the Maine coast and the wonderful description about battling the ocean amid a storm. Having read 'the Perfect Storm' twice, I also listened to those chapters twice. The narrator got the local accents just right, be it California or New York or Maine, he really nailed it. Highly recommend as a perfect escape from reality.

    Pseudo-science, sci-fi or suspense, fits all three.
