The Swarm by Frank Schatzing

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.

    I forgot signs. If you are new I'm the one with a bright yellow iphone and a glass of pinot.

    I've arrived. We are left if the door. Patio is full and loud but they moved us where it's emptier and quieter.

      lol not sure why my phone pieced message together this way.

      September 7, 2014

    • Nancy K.

      Because our phones hate us. Mine makes the most unreasonable autocorrects. Sorry you will miss the meet up, but thanks for updating. Hope to see you soon.

    So when is this meet up happening?

      Thank you, I'd read something about October on the comments and I was confused

      August 25, 2014

  • Nancy K.

    Due to the crankiness of the Elephant Bar manager, we are trying out Sammy's. Looking forward to it!

      Well? Are you going to move this one? :)

      July 8, 2014

    • Nancy K.

      It has been moved, Pluto has been demoted (again) and Noel Coward's play is in place.

    Even though I can't join y'all anymore in person I'm keeping up with the novels. I have finished The Swarm. I had a hard time putting it down! I totally like the idea of a parallel intelligence developing under water while humans developed on land. And that it is a superior intelligence due to its long memory. I just read (last Autumn) a fascinating book about octopuses and I saw similarities. (No, it's not octopii bcz it's a Greek word, not Latin.) Anyone else finish it yet?

  • Nancy K.

    Yikes! All of the upcoming books are long. I might have to buy some old lady reading glasses soon.

  • Cindy A.

    Just got the book today. Wow! Just under 900 pages. Glad I got it early.
