Really scary. An ancient relic goes to the dark halls of the NY Museum of Natural History from South America. Creepy, scary, NO PLACE FOR THE SQUEAMISH READER. This has it all.

I loved this creepy tale of the underbelly of a museum. Maybe too much; I haven't been to the Carnegie since I read it 'cause I'm afraid of what's lurking in there!

This was a great book. It's been years since I've seen the movie, so I only remembered bits and pieces and a lot was as it happened in the book. (I'll have to watch the movie again now just for old times' sake.) I didn't find it too scary, since it takes a lot to freak me out, but the suspense was really good and the storyline wonderful. I liked the character Pendergast, but noticed he wasn't in the cast for the movie when I IMDBed it to get a "visual" of the main characters. I was hooked into the book early and am looking forward to reading the sequel.

EXCELLENT - great start for Lincoln Child & Douglas Preston. You get to meet Pendergast, who is the protagonist in several following books. After you read this, you have to read RELIQUARY. Sometimes you may see the two listed together as RELIC/RELIQUARY, but they are 2 separate books.

This was my first Preston/Child book, and I loved it. Deep, dark, spooky... somehow implausible, yet I found that the next time I was in the Carnegie Museum of Art and Natural History, I was eyeballing dark corridors and elevators a little more closely than before...

Pendergast is a very real character, as are almost all of the folk who populate this novel. Yeah, there are a few whose deaths inspire cheers, but overall, you're pulling for the good guys to win.

Make sure you check out Reliquary, the sequel, once you've read this one.

Monster in the museum. It takes a researcher, a professor, a cop and an FBI agent to figure it all out. I saw the movie and hated it. Very Sci-Fi channel with a scooby doo ending. The book is better and interesting enough to read the sequel.

I had seen the movie and wasn't impressed. Hence, I was "kinda" reluctant to read the book. I am so glad I did. The book was so much better than the movie. It was a "nail biter" all the way to the very end. Preston & Child are such great story tellers. I can't wait to get started on the sequel....Reliquary. You "gotta" love Pendergast.

This first entry in the Pendergast series was gory, predictable, creepy, gory, formulaic, chilling, and yes, gory--not for the faint-hearted. But it's here, in shadowy sub-basements and maze-like hallways, that we first meet characters that quickly become favorites, especially Agent Pendergast and d'Agosta, and get drawn into their world. You'll never look at a museum in quite the same way again.

First time I read this novel, I was so scared I stopped reading it when it got dark outside and then slept with the lights on. Same thing the second time around. By the third reading, I was able to read at night, but kept a light on in every room. The fourth reading was my last - no more fright, but still a page-turner. Never a dull moment. As you can tell, this one didn't get old very quickly for me. I'm a sucker for museums, archaeology, and a good suspenseful thriller, and "Relic" combines all 3 flawlessly. I truly don't think I've read any other book so many times and had the same intense reaction each and every time (well, except for the 4th reading). This is, by far, my favorite Preston/Child book.

What a great thriller! A VERY scary monster is loose in the Museum of Natural History - what fun. If you like scientific thrillers and are interested in the behind the scenes workings of giant institutions, as well as being totally engrossed in a book, then you will love this. I literally couldn't stop reading it and finished it in a day.

I was looking forward to reading this book because the story sounded like something I would like. And it got a lot of good reviews.

But I could not even finish it! I felt like it was very "B" movie monster movie. Many compare it to Jurassic Park. I read JP a long time ago but I remember loving that book.
About 1/2 way through Relic I realized the story was not holding me and the characters were not strong enough to keep me reading. I have about 40 books in my TBR pile so I'm putting this one down.

I really liked the story. Some of the names were difficult to pronounce and understand. There are a lot of characters, but the author does a good job of reminding you who he's speaking of when he switches characters.

The story is def. out there, but totally interesting. I'm not really a sci-fi person, but this was cool! The audio cd is only 3 hours though, so that was disappointing. I was hoping for more like 5-6 hours, but again totally worth the "read"!

I'm requesting the next audio book in the series if that tells you anything! My understanding is the more current ones are even better.

Sucked me in from the beginning. Enough of a thriller to keep the pages turning, yet I wasn't completely frightened. The scientific explanation at the end was a bit like-what?? But, I enjoyed meeting the characters, Margo, D'Agosta, Pendergast. The Creature gave me enough bad dreams that I had to finish the book during the day! A worthy read of someone wanting a quick thriller.

Infinitely better than the movie, this was an engrossing read. Special Agent Pendergast has the intelligence and logic of Sherlock Holmes, with the élan of Nick Charles.

I would like to see even more character development, but since I already know that at least Pendergast, D'Agosta and Smithback appear in more novels by Preston & Child, I am hoping my wish will be fulfilled in later works.

From Publishers Weekly
A monster on the loose in New York City's American Museum of Natural History provides the hook for this high-concept, high-energy thriller. A statue of the mad god Mbwun, a monstrous mix of man and reptile, was discovered by a Museum expedition to South America in 1987. Now, it is about to become part of the new Superstition Exhibition at the museum (here renamed the "New York Museum of Natural History"). But as the exhibition's opening night approaches, the museum may have to be shut down due to a series of savage murders that seem to be the work of a maniac-or a living version of Mbwun. When the museum's director pulls strings to ensure that the gala affair takes place, it's up to a small band of believers, led by graduate student Margo Green, her controversial adviser and an FBI agent who investigated similar killings in New Orleans, to stop the monster-if the culprit is indeed a monster-from going on a rampage. Less horror then action-adventure, the narrative builds to a superbly exciting climax, and then offers a final twist to boot. With its close-up view of museum life and politics, plausible scientific background, sharply drawn characters and a plot line that's blissfully free of gratuitous romance, this well-crafted novel offers first-rate thrills and chills.

The first book by the duo Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, and it was a great start to their series of incredible books!

It itroduces you to Agent Pendergast who is a recurring figure through their works, and an incredible character. He's intelligent, quick-thinking, SOUTHERN with an accent, and has the oddest and most varied tastes!

The setting in a large natural history museum in New York is amazing. It is described wonderfully so you really can imagine the long hallways packed with oversized dino bones and drawers upon drawers of maps and records.

I totally reccomend starting with this book, and then reading through all the works created by Preston and Child!

Great book. Not what I expected. I guess I expected to get to know Pendergast a bit. Maybe in the next books? Guess I'll have to read to find out. It was fascinating to read about this huge museum. I'd love to try to map it out and explore the non public parts.

This abridged audiobook presentation of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child's first Agent Prendergast novel was very enjoyable to listen to! Narrator David Colacci has an interesting style, and, of course, the story is an excellent one. I really enjoyed the New York Natural History Musuem setting and this story of a cursed relic which is about to go on display in the museum.

Not nearly as funny as their later Cabinet of Curiosities.
Also set in the Natural History Museum. An evil idol brought back by anthropologists from the Brazilian rainforest seems to have spawned a dinosaur-man serial killer who's loose in the unmapped subbasements...
A pretty standard, entertaining horror/thriller.

Listened to this on CD during a trip to and from San Francisco. Enjoyable performance by David Colacci. The story was quite intense about an unknown entity on the loose in New York's natural history museum. The creature is a cross between a human and some kind of reptile or gecko (based on DNA samples). Overall another enjoyable thriller from Preston/Child.

Wow! What an exciting book! What a thrilling mystery! I really enjoyed this book and I am just so excited that this is a whole new series to be read! It is always just so exciting to find a new mystery series! I am not at all surprised that this was made into a movie. I am very curious to see this movie and see how they translated this book onto the silver screen. I am looking forward to seeing it, as well as to reading the sequel!
