A plausible feeling blend of fact and fantasy, The Swarm tells of the aggressive Brazilian Killer Bees (derived from the misguided cross-breeding of domestic Brazilian Bees with African Killer Bees, which are quite ill tempered) mistakenly getting introduced into the New York area. Quickly they spread across the country and begin posing a serious threat to the nation's safety.

I liked this book .. when I read it in print in the 70s. This Kindle edition is horribly formatted! All of the maps, figures and diagrams are missing. It is full of unwanted blank space, weird numbers like "12" and "93" and "105" that appear in paragraphs all by themselves. Someone was drunk when they operated the scanner! Hit the "Look Inside" link to see what I'm talking about -- the 93s are right out there!

Way, way better than the movie. This is actually a good novel written as a science fiction. Scary, and hard to put down once reading it is started.

The 1978 movie did not do the book justice in spite of its stellar cast. The book (as they usually are) is far superior. Don't miss it!

The formatting and spelling errors are horrendous (most pages broken by the number 93). Complete ripoff

Arthur Herzog was a genius, and the 1978 movie didn't do the book justice even with its stellar cast. Don't miss the book!

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this!! While listening to it, I kept thinking that it would make an awesome movie, only to realise it was one once upon a time! Before my time though so I can't comment on it!

The plot is easy summarised, basically it's about bees attacking people and the scientists trying to figure out why.Well there's a lot more to it that that, but that's the basic idea. I have to say that I really enjoyed the plot and found it to be quite spooky. The idea of the African bees swarming and attacking people was frightening. Also the idea of the bugs getting immune to pesticides and actually being able to use them against other bugs or humans was truly scary. The best thing about the book was how well researched and executed it was. You can just see from reading it, how much the author put into the story! It really makes the book stand out.

In all, I really enjoyed this. It would definitely make a good movie, once done right that is. It's easily believable and a quick read and I'm glad I listened to it.

Charles Henderson Norman did an amazing job with the narration. There was quite a lot of characters and he seemed to give each their own voice.

*I received a copy of this for review. This inn no way affected my thoughts.*

When Dr. John Wood reports his suspicions that Africanized bees have migrated to North America, scientists aren’t worried. It seemed like an isolated event, totally unrelated to reports out of South America of African killer bees who invaded and took over the hives of native bees, bringing a wave of terror with them. But as more people die of massive bee attacks, the assembled scientists must use their collective expertise to fight the threat of imminent danger to the entire country made even more insurmountable by the wave of panic gripping its citizens.

My rating? 3/5 stars. Not the terror ride promised on the cover, but a good read nonetheless.
It's too bad that most people will recognize the title only from Irwin Allen's Golden Turkey Award winning (for Most Badly Bumbled Bee Movie) adaptation rather than from Arthur Herzog's excellent source novel. A plausible feeling blend of fact and fantasy, The Swarm tells of the aggressive Brazilian Killer Bees (derived from the misguided cross-breeding of domestic Brazilian Bees with African Killer Bees, which are quite ill tempered) mistakenly getting introduced into the New York area. Quickly they spread across the country and begin posing a serious threat to the nation's safety. Can the bees be destroyed without harming the citizens or the enviroment? If you are looking for edge of your seat suspense then forget Allen's movie (which is good only for a laugh, believe me - it's my biggest guilty pleasure) and read this book, it is one of the best animal (or in this case insect) attack stories ever written.
