I love Lincoln Child books. I love it when he writes with Douglas Preston and when he writes on his own.
This book is particularly good and even thought provoking. Again there is the mystery and the very cutting edge of science. I am not a science geek so Child could easily put one over on me and i'd never know. It sounds so plausible to me.
A mysterious something is found in the Atlantic Ocean and of course the military is the one to go and retrieve it. There is an uneasy alliance of the best scientists the US can muster and military oversight. I loved the main character and his outsiders point of view showing us the bubble. I loved the big reveals and all the various peoples.
Really great stuff. If you like techno-futuristic type of thrillers. Science and out of this world stuff. This is a can not miss.
A fairly good read. I usually enjoy this author a great deal. However, the plot-line in this book is quite weak, and doesn't come together until the last few pages, and then still very weakly.
First read "Mount Dragon," co-authored by Lincoln Child, which is quite good. This one is a solo effort and just as good. Similar to "The Abyss" and a couple of other undersea thrillers, but there's an intelligence to this one that takes you away from the similarities. Good plot, good characters, and he's an excellent writer of descriptive action. I recommend it.
A GOOD READ! SCIENCE, AMBITION AND UNDREAMED OF TECHNOLOGY LOOM BENEATH THE EARTH'S CRUST. WHAT WILL SOME PEOPLE DO TO GET TO IT?
A thriller set deep in the ocean's crust. I liked some of the characters, but most seemed stereotypical and shallowly drawn. The premise was interesting, somewhat. Hard to say too much without giving the story away. I am lukewarm about the book because for most of the pages it lacked energy, and never really hooked me.
