9780340920756: The Swarm

Whales begin sinking ships. Toxic, eyeless crabs poison Long Island's water supply. The North Sea shelf collapses, killing thousands in Europe. Around the world, countries are beginning to feel the effects of the ocean's revenge as the seas and their inhabitants begin a violent revolution against mankind. At stake is the survival of the Earth's fragile ecology—and ultimately, the survival of the human race itself.

The apocalyptic catastrophes of The Day After Tomorrow meet the watery menace of The Abyss in this gripping, scientifically realistic, and utterly imaginative thriller.

Review:

"A gripping novel with fast-paced action, interesting and believable characters ... Enthralling. I was engrossed and on tenterhooks throughout." (Peter Constantine, award-winning translator of Thomas Mann's Six Early Stories )

"Whoever read[s] Frank Schatzing's novel will be thankful for every inch of dry land and will certainly avoid waterbeds." (Die Zeit )

"With The Swarm, Frank Schatzing competes with the likes of Michael Crichton." (Brigitte )

"At once intellectual and intoxicating, this novel is alarming, unnerving, and overwhelming in every respect." (Klner Stadt-Anzeiger )

"... a mind-bending, Crichton-esque fate-of-the-planet thriller ... enormously entertaining ... I recommend you dive right in." (Fangoria )

"An effervescent cocktail of adventure." (Der Spiegel )

"A gripping thriller starring nature unleashed. A monster of science-fiction, rich in facts." (Stern )

"The world could collapse around you [while reading The Swarm], and you wouldn't notice." (Die Welt )

"The outside world could disintegrate and the reader wouldn't notice because of the spellbinding power of ... Frank Schatzing's apocalyptic thriller. (Die Tageszeitung )

"After these 1,000 breathtaking pages you see the sea with different eyes." (Focus )

"It's doubtful you'll ever come up for air ... this ultimate summer read that recalls the best of Crichton and King." (Contra Costa Times )

"With The Swarm, Frank Schatzing lifts the German suspense novel up to the international level." (Sddeutsche Zeitung )
