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.
This a great mystery. I really loved it. Great book.
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.
