There were many things about this book that were enjoyable. The entire premise seemed feasible which helps. The merging of the ancient and the future was a nice touch. I have too admit I did Google map the locations just to get a better idea of where it was all taking place. I did a search on some of the locations especially the tombs mentioned. The book drew me in to that extent so it was well worth the money and the time. I have read some reviews that mention the possibility of some words being mispronounced. I didn't hear any but more importantly I wasn't trying to hear any. For me, a book is enjoyable if it takes me somewhere I haven't been, introduces me to people I have never met, opens my mind to things I was unaware of and makes me want to know how it ends. Do the good guys win and the bad guys lose? The other way to judge how enjoyable a book is might just be do I want to see what happens in the next book and I most certainly do.
I'm a big fan of James Rollins. I have read other Sigma Force books, but wanted to start over again. If you like science, action, and mystery, this is for you.
1 to 10 scale, it's about 7.
Fast action, page turner. Except for the reader. Too high pitched.
I like good books
I woulds sum it up with action-packed, great story and interesting plot
yes because things were always changing
they better make a filk for this book, when the desert becomes alive
this book is recommended by me
Probably would not bother with this author again.
I really wanted to like this book but it just got sillier and sillier.
I have listened to 250+ audio books and the narrator ruined this book. I tried to listen for about 2 hours and just couldn't do it. Sorry, probably a good story but...it was just bad.
I started listening to the Sigma Force books midway through the series so I appreciated getting some of the back story found in this book. As usual, Rollins does a great job of integrating history, science, and mystery into a cohesive plot. I like that his books include strong female characters who stand up for themselves and fight. The narrator did a great job with the story. He voiced the different characters seamlessly without any of the phoney accents or intonations that can easily throw you out of the story.
Have no idea.
This plot was fascinating with all the combination of history, archaeology and action. The scene with the snake in the bath was really tense.
The story was great but the reader was not as good. Story keeps you interested. Really detailed.
