Excellent Read, and a quick one! James Rollins takes us on another adventure, this time through the lush and dangerous jungles of the Amazon in search of a cure that could save mankind from a strange new plague. What they uncover is amazing, horrific, and spellbindingly wonderful to read. I definitely recommend this one. One of the better from 'his' bookshelf. :)
Another super James Rollins adventure story! I took this book with me on a business trip to Florida and read it on the plane and at the hotel. Hard to put down with non-stop action and very interesting premises about life itself and how man may have evolved. Some very wicked people were also in this adventure - Louis Favre and his Indian girl-friend "Tshui" (who got thrills out of torture and shrinking heads!) had to be some of the nastiest villians I have encountered in recent memory. Overall - a fun and exciting read.
This is my first Rollins book. It is a gripping adventure tale that takes off fast from the beginning and builds up to ludacrous speed.
Featuring protaganists that you really like and villains so evil they care nothing that all human life is on the brink of extinction. Rollins weaves a Very Entertaining story. I really enjoyed it.
As soon as I finished it I listed it here and ordered another book by Rollins.
Wow! Couldn't put it down. Was great from the start and finished with a big bang!
This book grabbed me from the first page. Could not put it down. Its a combination of adventure and science fiction takinig the reader into the utmost reaches of the Amazon jungle and the secrets to be discovered there. I sincerely hope the human race doesn't destroy this part of the world. It is ripe for the imaginations of writers such as Rollins and for science as well.
