Synopsis:

2 cassettes / 3 hours. Abridged. Read by Stanley Tucci. It was the storm of the century -- a tempest created by so rare a combination of factors that meteorologists deemed it "the perfect storm."When it struck in October, 1991, there was virtually no warning. "She's comin' on, boys, and she's comin' on strong," radioed Captain Billy Tyne of the Andrea Gail from off the coast of Nova Scotia. Soon afterward, the boat and its crew of six disappeared without a trace.The Perfect Storm is a real-life thriller, a stark and compelling journey into the dark heart of nature that leaves listeners with a breathless sense of what it feels like to be caught, helpless, in the grip of a force beyond understanding or control.


Review:

"Sebastian Junger declares that his own confrontation with the storm was limited to standing on the backshore of Gloucester, watching 30-foot swells approach Cape Ann. But he clearly went on to experience it through the words of the storm's survivors and those connected with the Andrea Gail. Interviewing them must have been a difficult, even intrusive job, but the result is thrilling--a boat ride into and (for us) out of a watery hell."

Anthony Bailey, New York Times Book Review, 06/22/1997

Review:

"While the story recreates the fate of one particular boat, the book as a whole gives a fascinating insight into the workings of the sea and the lives of the men who earn a living from it."

Paddy Sutton, Literary Review, September 1997
