Hellllllllo! While I’m up to the writing thing, I thought I would write a review on a book I recently read. I’ve been hearing people talk about this everywhere so the curiosity on my part got the better of me and I gave it a chance – I am very glad that I did.
It is basically a collection of private interviews stored by the government to multiple people involved in the discovery and research of a giantic metal hand. Each interview asks about what they know so far, their personal lives what they’ve done to contribute finding more information and theories made so far.
Now, despite being a massive fan of science fiction on screen, I’m not actually a big fan of it in literature. I’m not sure why, but the big words and all that technical talk really puts me off. A book where I don’t understand any of the narration is not one I’m going to enjoy. SLEEPING GIANTS was not like that. It was simple, to the point and had me hooked at every page.
I’ve heard people compare this to THE MARTIAN but…I haven’t read that, so I can’t comment on the comparison. However, if they truly are similar, I might give that one another go. I have tried to in the past, because I really wanted to see the movie, but it was just too difficult for me to understand.
Basically, to sumarize, it’s exactly what I needed to read right now. It had me hooked. Gripping, compelling, fascinating, makes me want to read the next two books as fast as physically possible. The only thing I would change about this is the unneccessary relationship that was just thrown in to it – we were given very little information about it, it was just sort of thrown in and if theres a reason it’s not obvious to me.
I would reccommend this if you’re into science fiction, absolutely, especially if you’re like me and find a majority of science fiction books difficult to read
Did you read it? Have you read the books that follow up? If so, what did you think of them?
