Title: Frank Schätzing: The Swarm: A Novel of the Deep

Abstract: "The Swarm" is big. It has been one of Germany's best-selling books ever. And it is a big best seller. Not only is it nearly 900 pages long even in large paperback format, it has also been bought by Uma Thurman to be made into a film. And believe me, it will be a major movie. There's no doubt about that. The book reads like an extended screenplay. I have no doubt this book will be as much a cinematic blockbuster as it is a bestseller in Germany and is attaining that status in the English-speaking world. The Swarm is not a literary novel. This book is aimed at readers who like facts, thrills, a little bit of sexual tension and the odd touch of terror. It is speculative fiction, with its premise in the question: what if?
