Overview

Amazonia by James Rollins

“Gripping…a first-rate nail biter.”

 —Tampa Tribune

 

James Rollins—the author of The Doomsday Key, The Last Oracle, The Judas Strain, Black Order, and other pulse-pounding, New York Times bestsellers—carries readers into the heart of darkness in his classic thriller, Amazonia. Lincoln Child, New York Times bestselling co-author (with Douglas Preston) of Cemetery Dance and other Agent Pendergast thrillers, raves, “Amazonia grabs you by the throat and refuses to let go until the very last page is turned.”

I have never written a review before so I decided to pick one of my favorite books and Amazonia definitely qualifies. I loved reading this book and did not want to put it down. It really grabs you and doesn't let you go. This is definitley a re-read for me. Nathan Rand is an exceptional main character who isn't in a race to be the next Rambo. He's a hero when needs to be but he isn't stupid or foolish. One can very easily relate to his character. I highly recomend this book to anyone that is in search of a good thriller.

Awesome book! I could hardly put it down! If you like action, adventure, and learning about new cultures and places (or at least getting inspired to go do some research) then this is the book for you-as well as any other book written by James Rollins!

James Rollins fans must read this book. It is every bit as good as the Sigma series. James Rollins uses both historic fact and well researched fiction to craft a suspenseful story in the Amazon jungle.

Amazonia, for me, was a mega adventure. Full of danger, excitement, discoveries.With Rollins writing style and descriptions of events (excellent as always), the story was so vivid and had a terrific ending. James Rollins never fails to transport me into a place far more exciting than even my extremely vivid imagination can take me. I love all his books!

Lots of action, in an exciting location. Well written fast paced. I am not a fast reader and have put down many books that don't hold my attention, this is not one of them.

I almost read the entire book in one evening, I just couldn't stop. James Rollins is master when it comes to writing adventure books and this book is so incredibly engrossing that I just couldn't stop reading. Just one more chapters, and suddenly it's two hours later. The only drawback? The romance, I don't know why, I just wasn't fond of it. I'm not against romance in adventure book, but I want it to feel real, and the romance between the main characters, well it was just corny, one step away from a harlequin novel...but beside that the book was really good!

I have never read a James Rollins book that I didn't thoroughly enjoy and Amazonia was no exception. I read allot and I rarely give such high praise but Rollins' is far more creative and talented a writer than most others. Stephanie Clanahan

James has created a tantalizing tale of Amazonian jungle Mystery, packed with plenty of fast-paced action, love and a little gore.  Maybe a tad more than a little – but never over-the-top.

James Rollins creates a roller coaster of a ride through the jungle in Amazonia. The book is filed with scientific drama that never seems to end. Once one new bizarre species is discovered, Rollins creates two more waiting around the corner to attack. Each chapter is a nail bitter as you fear for your favorite character's life. The writing style and the addition of 'pointless' characters for killing off is similar to Michael Crichton. I highly recommend this book for people who like fast paced books with mind blowing plot twists that keep you turning the page.
