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!

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.

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.
