After several expeditions it becomes clear that the worms, together with bacteria, are destabilizing the methane clathrate in the continental shelf.
When the continental slope collapses the subterranean landslide causes a tsunami that hits most of the North Sea 's coasts, killing millions and severely damaging the infrastructure in the coastal regions.
At the same time Leon Anawak, a marine scientist who investigates the behavior of whales and works for a whale watching company, makes startling observations in the whales' behavior; and is called to investigate an incident where whales and sea-borne mussels seemed to have attacked and incapacitated a commercial freighter. When he returns to his whale watching job, he witnesses how humpback whales and orcas attack the watcher's boats. The whales work together to capsize the boats and then kill the people drifting in the water.
These events are part of a worldwide phenomenon. Several other attacks are briefly described in the plot: swimmers are driven from the coast by sharks and venomous jellyfish ; commercial ships are attacked and sometimes destroyed; France sees an outbreak of an epidemic caused by lobsters contaminated with a highly lethal type of Pfiesteria.
When it becomes clear that all those events are related, an international scientific task force is created under the lead of the United States , led by Lieutenant General Judith Li, a close friend and adviser to the President ; the protagonists become part of it.
While the task force is in session, the attacks on humanity continue: the North American east coast is overrun by Pfiesteria-infested crabs that attack New York City , Washington D. The Gulf Stream has also ceased to exist, an event that may initiate a global climate change that would threaten human civilization. Sigur Johanson finally announces his hypothesis: the phenomena are intentional attacks by an unknown sentient species from the depths of the oceans; he states that this is the only logical conclusion, since the attacks are outside the power of any human agency and cannot be a natural phenomenon.
Johanson calls them "yrr", after three letters he typed randomly on his computer. The goal of the yrr is to eliminate the human race, which is devastating the Earth's oceans. General Li and a small group of scientists take to the sea on the helicopter carrier USS Independence in an attempt to find the yrr and make contact with them.
They discover that the yrr are single-cell organisms that operate in groups swarms , controlled by a single hive-mind that may have existed for hundreds of millions of years.

The yrr form a collective intelligence and have inheritable memories that are passed on by manipulating parts of their DNA. Individual yrr recognize each other by using a specific pheromone. The scientists have some success in investigating the yrr and make limited contact.
The attacks do not cease, however. Sigur Johanson also finds out that General Li has not been honest with them. One of the scientists has been working on a modified pheromone to eradicate the yrr completely. Johanson disagrees with this approach because the elimination of the yrr may completely destroy the marine ecosystem and thus the human race.
Li, however, is unwilling to accept that dominance over the Earth may not be a God-given birthright of mankind, and the United States in particular.
She will rather take the risk than allow the US power to wane. Try the Kindle edition and experience these great reading features: Share your thoughts with other customers. Write a customer review. Showing of 4 reviews.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I am not a native German speaker, being only an intermediate student, and so this book was challenging to me--but, what an exciting and captivating story.
I honestly did not know where this plot was going to end up. I went whale watching near Vancouver Island after reading the first half of the book, and, you'll understand after reading it yourself, I was nervous! The book is so good I'm going to reread it in its English translation. Then I'll probably provide a more thorough review.
Audible Audiobook. I wish I could have found an audio version of this book in English, as I do not speak German. Sadly, it does not exist. I did however read this book and it is a page turner. Hardly great literature, but the writing is serviceable and the many story lines keep you hanging, reading late into the night in my case.

I do know that a goodly part of the science in the book is accurate and the fanciful parts are, well, what they are. Just today in the news there is mention of increasing amounts of methane plumes being spotted in the ocean, ten years after this book's publication.
Back when I read this book, about 7 years ago, I knew nothing about such a thing and now today, this book's prescience is demonstrated in at least one way. Environmental Armageddon may be at hand! I heartily recommend this book as a good read and thought provoking one at that.
Der Schwarm war anstrengend zu lesen, aber auch gut. Es hilft, dass das Buch in relativ handhabbare Einheiten dargestellt ist. Er verbringt auch eine Zeit Religion debattieren, obwohl es kein wesentlicher Bestandteil der Geschichte bis zu diesem Punkt war.
Die Diskussion war interessant, aber eher eine Ablenkung als ein Element der Geschichte. Insgesamt, eine gute Geschichte, und sehr lesenswert, wenn Sie eine gut geschriebene nahen-Zukunft SF-Geschichte suchen und ein bisschen Zeit haben.

While she gives orders to have Johanson killed, the ship is attacked and crippled by the yrr and a final showdown ensues on the sinking Independence.
Claims of plagiarism[ edit ] Thomas Orthmann, a German marine biologist and journalist, claims that dozens of passages in The Swarm have been lifted word for word from his writings.
