Review: Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel



Publisher: April 2016

Publishing Date: Random House

ISBN: 9781101886694

Genre: SciFi

Rating: 3.1/5

Publisher Description: Rose Franklin is a highly trained physicist leading a top-secret team to crack the hand’s code. And along with her colleagues, she is being interviewed by a nameless interrogator whose power and purview are as enigmatic as the relic they seek. What’s clear is that Rose and her compatriots are on the edge of unraveling history’s most perplexing discovery—and finally figuring out what it portends for humanity.

Review: Interesting story line that, at times, gets mired in non-relevant dialogue. The entirety of the novel follows an interview format. The CIA/NSA? Spook interviews the people involved with his project which doesn’t make sense, really. It is more of a informational vehicle for the reader and helps the writer expedite the story line. 

For some reason this novel kept my attention. Perhaps I was waiting for the space aliens to show up or at the least, get some closure to the open ended story line that wandered blindly into the desert. I am left speculating if the story line died of thirst or is plotting a sequel, somewhere.
