Great storyline, great plot and I was certainly riveted. What I don't like is making the "brilliant" main character suddenly stupid and unable to understand/figure it out in parts of this story just so the plot can be extended. This was a great storyline and those moments weren't necessary.

Where does White Plague rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Top 25. It would be easy to call this book out as somewhat formulaic, but a tension and high level of research runs through it ( with some minor bumps which are excusable to anyone but a purist.)
Of course, Ray Porter brings the story completely to life, which sure helps.
What other book might you compare White Plague to and why?
Gosh, any of the countless Arctic based submarine stories, as well as " latent disease unleashed" books. This offering combines those, with a nice conspiracy overlay AND the always dangerous Chinese Navy, to combine and deliver a highly compelling story.
What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?
Well, I did feel like Joe Ledger was in the da house, and that is not a bad thing. Porter is one of the finest audio book performers in our time, and this offering brings this to light yet again. His cadence, his laconic tone at times, and his authenticity sparkles.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The current titles says it all, and brings it all together.
Any additional comments?
This is a highly contemporary, relevant and interesting study in science, the arctic, history, submarines, conspiracies...in other words, you name it, this one has it. Perhaps abit too much at times, it is still a fine listen, easy to digest and yet with enough substance to keep the listener entertained. Highly recommended.
