The best of the first three by far and I liked the first two just fine. Very interesting plot, with Pendergast at his best and more of a developed character now. It will leave you scampering for 'Still Life with Crows,' and then on to 'Brimstone,' where things really 'heat up.'

I would have to say this is the best book they have written. I felt as if I was in the story, they did a great job at making this story suspensful. It was very creepy and I couldn't put it down. I am a fan of all of thier books, and I think they did a great job of describing the story. This is a great read for anyone who love these books and I definetly recommend reading this one.

The premise behind this book will really scare you...and make you think. More than Relic or Reliquary, Cabinet of Curiosities starts to give us a look at the Pendergast history, and the driving force behind all of Agent Pendergast's actions. Another great addition to the series that will keep you guessing until the very last pages!

I read this book and I loved it so much that I read it a second time. Preston and Child are some of my favourite writers and I would recommend them to anybody. They are some of the best writers and I love to reread all of their books.

Loved this book! I just finished it and it was the first of the Preston and Child books that I have read and I am currently adding all their books to my cart and buying them. It was fantastic, I was hooked from the first few pages. It was very interesting and captivating, I couldn't put it down! FABULOUS! It was so hard to not look ahead and try to figure out the book. I HIGHLY recommend reading this book even if you read no other Preston and Child book.

I didn't hold out much hope for this book as the earlier two novels in the series proved to be a dissapoint, but i throughly enjoyed this novel. it was compelling and interesting. these guys write awesome thrillers and have captivated my interest.

I enjoyed reading this one. It is always nice to get back to the characters that you know. That being said, I did not like this as much as the first two in the series. Pendergast seemed too artificial in this book. Also, I think it was D'Agosta and the doctolady that made the other teo so good. Still, I will give Pendergast another shot, because the next book in the series sounds good.

Best book by these authors in my opinion. Read every single one they have out. Pendergast is incredible and such an intricate and unique character. Definitely a must read for anyone who loves reading and enjoys being kept on their toes.

Was waiting for this to came back in hardcover. Was expecting a dust jacket. Went one for two. Glad the book is so much better than the cover.

The Pendergast books are the best thrillers I have read in years. Some of these reviews say Pendergast is too unreal, no one can survive that many accidents, but that is what is so fun; it's just Harry Potter in a black suit. Great read!

I am trying to read these in order, and I must say, it didn't take much to get me hooked with this book. From the initial "find" to the fast paced conclusion, I enjoyed this read very much. I will continue to read this series, and any Preston & Child offering I find. Very good reads!

Second reading is better than 1st-if that is possible. I still feel this is a diabolical masterpiece. Hooked forever. One of the books I would include in my top 10 scary mysteries.

This is the first Pendergast book I have read. I don't usually like mysteries, but absolutely loved it. The writers, Preston and Child, really have it together. The research is extensive and extremely interesting. I am now reading Reliquary and again very in depth technical jargon. I'm hooked on Pendergast.

Keeps you guessing right to the End. The surgeon is evil incarnate, and special agent A.X.L Pendergast, is the coolest FBI guy in print.He always gets his man.

Book was fairly good but it took me a while to get over the little mind trips Pendergast takes. What is wrong with a normal plot instead of having to lace it together with this supernatural crap? Stephanie Clanahan

Preston and Child have a way of writing that keeps you interested throughout the story.  Keeping you on the edge of your seat and nervous for what may lay around any corner is a talent few writer's possess well.  The conclusion of the story also leaves one satisfied as they touch on the fantastical without losing credibility.  A very good read.

This is my favorite of the Agent Pendergast books.  Its the first where Agent Pendergast becomes the focal point of the series and he is presented with one heck of a mystery that reaches back into the very roots of his own family. Much of what happens in this book carries over through the rest of the series.
