Another addictive page turner

Although Subterranean doesn't have his normal hero, this book is one of his best. As he always does, he captivates you in the very first chapter, then holds you by the collar throughout the rest of the book. James Rollins is never one to go lightly on your emotions and in Subterranean he seems to even have developed the capacity to tap into your adrenalin flow.

By Chapter three, you will enter a mode of constant reading and sleep deprivation. By the end of this fascinating novel you will need a two day recovery period at the minimum. A week would be better.

By the way, did I say I really liked this novel. OK, that's because I really loved it!

Outlandish.

Had a good initial plot and original idea, but the author lost me 3/4 way through the book with a disappointing ending. Some main characters underdeveloped and left me guessing. More suited for a made-for-TV sci-fi low budget film.

    Couldn't even finish

    This book felt incredibly amateurish in its style. Stereotypes and oversimplification abound and that was only in the first 4 chapters. All fiction to some extent requires a suspension of disbelief. This one requires that you bludgeon it into oblivion.

    Couldn't get past page three

    When a book starts out bad. I try to go on as far as possible. Give the book a chance. I couldn't get past page three for all the language. I would expect an expedition of scientific professionals to be a better 'Class' of people. Other than pot smoking, potty mouthed idiots. I had looked forward to this book for the subject matter and the adventures it suggested. I guess there is a great adventure in there somewhere. If you don't mind taking the trip with common trash. Very sorry I bought this one.
