A thriller set deep in the ocean's crust. I liked some of the characters, but most seemed stereotypical and shallowly drawn. The premise was interesting, somewhat. Hard to say too much without giving the story away. I am lukewarm about the book because for most of the pages it lacked energy, and never really hooked me.

In Deep Storm, Child hikes up the creativity quite a bit and weaves a tale that I couldn't predict no matter how hard I tried. It starts off with the discovery of Atlantis under the sea, and then it spins of into totally different directions. The end revelation is jarring and unnerving, and I'm pleased that Child had the balls to leave it on such a chilling note. I spent the last fourth of the book reading as quickly as I could, often to the point where I realized I was skipping paragraphs that I had to go back and reread. ( )

I found the start slow, but once the book got moving there was lots of excitement to keep me interested. The setting was interesting, being deep under the ocean and the characters were interesting. ( )

Dirk Pitt-ish, emphasizing brains rather than magnetic good looks.

As is common, the military is cast as the closemouthed oppressive gorilla enforcer, with only a few 'for the good of the world' types thrown in.

While this is a satisfying adventure with tidbits of alien visitation tossed in, this is mostly a bunch of secretive military types letting nothing get in their way of getting their hands on what might be the ultimate weapon.

On an oil platform in the middle of the North Atlantic, a terrifying series of illnesses is spreading through the crew. When expert naval doctor Peter Crane is flown in, he finds his real destination is not the platform itself but Deep Storm: a top secret aquatic science facility, two miles below on the ocean floor. And as Crane soon learns, the covert operation he finds there is concealing something far more sinister than a medical mystery—and much more deadly.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385515502, Hardcover)

Twelve-thousand feet beneath the Atlantic Ocean . . .
scientists are excavating the most extraordinary undersea discovery ever made. But is it the greatest archaeological find in history—or the most terrifying?

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 topsecret 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. Scientists and technicians are experiencing a bizarre array of symptoms—from simple fatigue to violent psychotic episodes. 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.

Like Lincoln Child’s spectacular bestsellers coauthored with Douglas Preston (The Book of the Dead, Relic), Deep Storm melds scientific detail and gripping adventure in a superbly imagined, chillingly real journey into unknown territory. Child is a master of suspense, and Deep Storm is his most ambitious novel to date.
