” Kirkus Reviews “Reminiscent of The Martian and World War Z Sleeping Giants is a luminous conspiracy yarn that shoots for and lands among the stars” Pierce Brown New York Times bestselling author of Red Rising   “First time novelist Sylvain Neuvel does a bold splashy cannonball off the high dive with Sleeping Giants It bursts at the seams with big ideas and the uestions they spawn How much human life is worth sacrificing in the pursuit of scientific progress Can humanity be trusted with weapons of ultimate destruction And the biggest Are we alone But all that really matters is that this book is a sheer blast from start to finish I haven’t had this much fun reading in ages” Blake Crouch author of Dark Matter and the bestselling Wayward Pines trilogy From the Hardcover editi. Man I loved this SF novel The seuel Waking Gods was published at the beginning of April 2017 and the last book in this series is being published this springFinal review first posted on Fantasy LiteratureI first read Sleeping Giants six months ago and was immediately sucked into its world I stayed up far too late reading it finishing it the next day when I really should have been working History repeats itself When it came time to write this review I thought I would take a uick glance through this novel reading a few pages here and there to remind myself of the important plot points Instead I read the entire book again in one sitting staying up until past 200 am Clearly Sleeping Giants is literary crack and I had best stay away from it when any other duty or my bed is calling Sleeping Giants takes several ingredients that always appeal to me geeky science governmental conspiracies a master planner with ice water in his veins intelligent characters and dry humor and folds them into a mystery about a very strange artifact The story is told through a series of recorded interviews and journal entries and the like It s been done before but I thought the format lent itself well to the plot We get to know the characters through their own words Intriguingly the files that make up the chapters often skip over several numbers at a time eg File No 17 is followed by File No 31 increasing the sense of reality by implying how much backstory remains untoldRose Franklin riding her bike on her eleventh birthday falls into a fifty foot deep hole that suddenly appears in her path When she comes to the next morning she is lying on a twenty three foot long metal hand at the bottom of a perfectly suare hole as big as a house with bright turuoise light shining from unreadable symbols carved in the walls around herTwenty years later Rose now a senior scientist at the University of Chicago is placed in charge of a team researching the nature of the hand and the symbols on the wall panels Carbon dating shows the hand to be between five and six thousand years old and linguists have never been able to interpret any of the symbols which are inexplicably still glowing The hand and writing have baffled scientists for years But suddenly it occurs to Rose What triggered the sudden appearance of the hand Surely there must be other metal body parts to go with the hand and can we cause them to appear as well As she figures out the answer the team and this novel are off and running various immense pieces of the artifact are extracted often from other countries which causes some political upheaval and put together some mysteries are solved only to give rise in Hydra like fashion to many Their mysterious handler begins to bring in key new members of the team with Dr Franklin as the head and heart of it Kara Resnik the hotshot helicopter pilot who is both incredibly stubborn and irascible but also funny and vulnerable was my favorite but each team member is a distinct individual with their own personality uirks and flaws The key players are Victor Couture a brilliant French Canadian linguist Ryan Mitchell Kara s co pilot who is variously compared to Captain America and an underwear model by other characters and Alyssa Papantoniou a geneticist with a stammer and a desire to be in charge Even the nameless handler whom we get to know only through his interviews of other characters develops as a character He appears extremely cold blooded though with a sardonic sense of humor I read his file I believe he is resilient than you give him credit for You rea He has a file Your hairdresser has a file and you see him once a month Vincent Couture is a foreign national on US soil with direct access to top secret level information on a daily basis He has several files very large ones You have a file on my hairdresser Yes He really needs to file his taxesBut though he never ceases weaving his plans and pulling the strings of others he gradually becomes sympathetic and understandable Sleeping Giants has just the right amount of hard science enough technical and scientific details to satisfy the geek in me but it never goes overboard like say Seveneves and it s infused with delightfully imaginative developments In the cold light of day I have a few uibbles with the science parts particularly toward the end of the novel In particular I have issues with view spoilerthe practicality of backwards bending knees in a two legged humanoid being and how these or any other alien beings could interbreed with humans many millennia ago hide spoiler
