Description

For lovers of John Carpenter’s The Thing comes a tale of alien horror from international best-selling author Greig Beck.  

100,000 years ago the object hit the lake at the deepest point, quickly sinking into its mile-deep Stygian darkness. The sheets of ice closed, time moved on and the land forgot.  

But over the centuries, legends grew of people vanishing, of strange, deformed animals and of an unexplained luminescence down in the lake depths.  

When Marcus Stenson won the lucrative contract to create a sturgeon fish farm on the site of disused paper mill on the shore of Lake Baikal, he thought he had won the lottery and refused to listen to the chilling folktales, or even be concerned by the occasional harassment from the local mafia.   

But then animals were found mutilated in the frozen forest and people started to go missing. And worse, some came back, changed, horribly. 

In the depths of the lake, something that had been waiting 100,000 years was stirring. And it needed the warmth of mankind to survive.

Sloppy

Cliche upon cliche. Names misspelled or, seemingly, pulled from the ceiling. As mentioned above - sloppy work. Not recommended. Kudos to narrator. He did his best with what he had.

Fun, wild adventure!

100,000 years ago something crashed inti the deepest lake on earth, in Siberia. Since then, weird lights have been seen emanating from the depths and in modern day people in the area have been disappearing. Now, an American has won a lottery to build a sturgeon farm in the lake, to save the dwindling sturgeon population. He arrives in Siberia to begin the work. Enter his group of workers, the Russian mafia, sub-zero temperatures and terrifying occurences: disemboweled animals that are still somehow ambulatory, missing team members, cameras catching..... something, yet nothing. It's a wild and crazy adventure for fans of horror-thriller, sci-fi, and military tales. 5 stars for the pure entertainment value. The narration was also excellent.

Takes too long to get to meat of the story.

Greig Beck is hit or miss as far as this listener is concerned and, in my humble opinion, The Siberian Incident is a miss. The story is okay, at least during the final half of the book; but, the first half is just dull. Even when the story picks up the pace, I found it to be rather expected and, in that sense, disappointing. So, no book 2 for me. Regarding Sean Mangan, I found his narration much better at a 1.2 speed.

The narrator mispronunciations are distracting

Narrator is fine but the direction is terrible mispronunciations abound , good story though and worth a credit.

Very Cool

Before buying this book I read many reviews and went with the endless comparisons to The Thing, which is one of my all time favorites. While I did enjoy this book a lot, I don't see enough similarities. Only 2 things in common here, first being that they're both about hostile aliens, and second that they both take place in icy frozen areas. Other than those things, they differ quite a bit. I do massively prefer Who Goes There? But this was certainly an enjoyable Sci-Fi/Horror story.

A fun story really dumb science

There is not much more to say, the story is fun, it really would have benefit it it was simpler, but yet I could enjoy.
But the "science" OMG, next time don't explain anything if that is what the explanation it. I am not exaggerating when I say a high school student would have done a better job.
as example with spoilers. The monsters are supposed to have an ultraviolet color. instead of them being black, like scorpions, which are actually mentioned in the book, they are invisible. That is so dumb and unnecessary to the story it's really hard to thing this book has been review by an editor at all.

Another Exceptional Tale

He did it again. This was another gripping tale that I found myself listening too far too much, more than I planned as I had great trouble putting it down.

Great concept, great action, mediocre execution

I love my cheesy B horror. Pulp. Something scary but with action. And this book delivers!... Eventually.

Unfortunately what holds this book back is pacing issues. You spend 4-5 hours with nothing, very little build up toward anything, and the ending action, which was great, felt so rushed I was genuinely shocked when the book ended right when it felt like it was building to something great.

I wanted to love this book. instead, I loved parts, and was bored for the rest of it.

I don't think I can recommend it only for the ending two hours when it's such a slog to get to.

That being said, I'm going to try another book by the author, in the hopes that it'll be better. I really enjoy his writing style and concepts, so with any luck, this book wasn't representative of his entire library.

Lots of language last 3rd

Interesting story but the bad language in the last 3rd of the book spoiled it for me. Wish I had known it was like that before I purchased. Monsters were better and more believable earlier as well. It just lost my enjoyment for the story as it went on with the swearing getting worse. Also it is fairly violent so if that bothers you know that lots of the violence is clearly described. Much of it being people fighting/killing people.

The performance was great with the narrator giving good pausing, enunciating clearly, good. inflections, emphasis, and a nice variety of voices. He is a narrator I would like to hear again.

Just so disappointed

This story is chocked full of disjointed connections. As if the author was grasping at anything that would fit and make some sense to move the story forward to the finish deadline. I kept catching incidences of this, paused, and wondered what was up with that?
I like Greig Beck as an Author, mostly. Sometime the pressure of producing something, anything, really shows! I am just so disappointed with this book.

Who goes there?

I've always had a soft spot for John Carpenter's "The Thing" and any similar books, movies etc. So when I saw this one on offer, decided to give it a try. This author could be someone to watch, but this book is just average. The buildup takes too long , and it all devolves into Navy Seals versus- I won't spoil that one, because this book WAS entertaining! If the narration seems a little slow, tale it up to 1.20x, and you should be good to go ! I would be willing to try another book from this author.

Idiotic Americans Meet Illiterate Russians - Hilarity Ensues

Brilliant Person: They eviscerate you and scoop out your brain before using you like a puppet
Also Brilliant Person: Hey look, it’s Marcus!! They must not have killed him, since he’s standing up and staring at us with those beautiful milky white eyes.

Russian #1: Strazvoot!
Russian #2: What?? Hey, Voice Talent, if you aren’t going to take the time to learn how to pronounce even a couple words of Russian, don’t take the job. And why do you need to end every sentence with a downward inflection? Switch it up! Bozhe moi.

Alien: *lifts up massive slab of ice that’s six feet thick and pushes it aside*
Scientist #1: We will need some chicken wire and tie wraps to make a cage! Spare no expense!
Scientist #2: I saw the movie E.T. and feel I am ready to talk with it once it’s caged. Good thing our Department of Fish and Game doubles as our extraterrestrial first contact team!

Person #1: think we got them all?
Person #2: of course! Otherwise the ending would be utterly cliche and predictable. Actually, hell, after reading up to this point, I’m pretty sure the author thinks it would be an unexpected twist … We are so toast.
