Un clásico moderno: la historia de la tormenta del siglo.

En octubre de 1991 tuvo lugar lo que los meteorólogos denominaron «la tormenta del siglo», un fenómeno imprevisto que azotó la costa este de Norteamérica fruto de una insólita combinación de factores. Con olas de más de treinta metros de altura y vientos de 180 kilómetros por hora, la tormenta sacudió el mar con una violencia extraordinaria.

En La tormenta perfecta, Junger describe las condiciones que dieron lugar a este hecho sin precedentes y reconstruye minuciosamente tres emocionantes historias, la de los seis tripulantes del pesquero Andrea Gail –que desaparecieron a cientos de kilómetros de su hogar en Gloucester, Massachusetts–, la de un velero atrapado en plena tormenta y la del rescate de los tripulantes de un helicóptero de salvamento que cayó al mar.

A partir de una extensa serie de fuentes, que van de comunicaciones por radio a relatos de testigos, Junger recrea con impresionante tensión narrativa la lucha de estos hombres por su supervivencia y traza un magnífico retrato de la gente de mar.

Convertida en un bestseller desde su aparición en 1997, esta crónica sobrecogedora está considerada ya un clásico del género.

I’m very impressed with the amount of research that went into The Perfect Storm, and with Junger’s ability to arrange it all in a manner that was both easy to follow and didn’t slog the reader down in too much technical data. The individuals’ stories, such as those of the men lost aboard the Andrea Gail, added a lot to the story. My only real complaint involves a personal preference - I could have done without the ‘biological responses to drowning’ section as I felt it to be in poor taste. ( )

Con la tensin narrativa de la propia furia de los elementos, Junger nos lleva al corazn de la tormenta, describiendo con gran fuerza el valor, el temor y el pnico que se desatan ante un fenmeno de estas caractersticas. Recrea los ltimos momentos de la tripulacin del Andrea Gail y relata la valenta de unos rescates en alta mar que dejaron hroes y vctimas, entretejiendo la historia de la industria pesquera, la meteorologa y los testimonios de personas que se vieron afectadas por la tormenta. La tormenta perfecta nos deja en los labios un sabor a mar y nos trasmite el desamparo que se siente cuando se est dominado por una fuerza de la naturaleza que escapa a nuestro conocimiento y control.

I tried. I tried so hard but I just can't get into this book at all.

Here's what I wrote in 2008 about this read: "Highly memorable, the fated Andrea Gail, lost a sea in the perfect storm, in 1991. Also made into a movie, but did not see." ( )

The two vessels pass by each other without a word or a sign, unable to communicate, unable to help each other, navigating their own courses through hell.
Meteorologists see perfection in strange things, and the meshing of three completely independent weather systems to form a hundred-year event is one of them. My God, thought Case, this is the perfect storm. As a result of this horrible alignment, the bulk of the sword fleet – way out by the Flemish Cap – is spared the brunt of the storm, while everyone closer to shore gets pummeled.
People who work on boats have a hard time resisting the idea that certain ones among them are marked, and that they will be reclaimed by the sea. The spitting image of a man who drowned is a good candidate for that; so are all his shipmates. Jonah, of course, was marked, and his shipmates knew it. Murph was marked and told his mother so. Adam Randall was marked but had no idea; as far as he was concerned, he just had a couple of close-calls. After the Andrea Gail went down e told his girlfriend, Chris Hansen, that while he was walking around on board he felt a cold wind on his skin and realized that no one on the crew was coming back. He didn't say anything to them, though, because on the waterfront that isn't done – you don't just tell six men you think they're going to drown. Everyone takes their chance,s and either you drown or you don't.
Anyone who has been through a severe storm at sea has, to one degree or another, almost died, and that fact will continue to alter them long after the winds have stopped blowing and the waves have died down. Like a war or a great fire, the effects of a storm go rippling outward through webs of people for years, even generations. It breaches lives like coastlines and nothing is ever again the same.
