” 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.

Sleeping Giants

Length 8 hrs sand 27 minsAn inventive debut in the tradition of World War Z and The Martian told in interviews journal entries transcripts and news articles Sleeping Giants is a thriller fueled by a uest for truth and a fight for control of earthshaking power A girl named Rose is riding her new bike near her home in Deadwood South Dakota when she falls through the earth She wakes up at the bottom of a suare hole its walls glowing with intricate carvings But the firemen who come to save her peer down upon something even stranger a little girl in the palm of a giant metal hand   Seventeen years later the mystery of the bizarre artifact remains unsolved its origins architects and purpose unknown Its carbon dating defies belief; military reports are redacted; theories are floated then rejec. You have to understand that this flies in the face of everything we know about American civilizations Sleeping Giants is being compared to the bestseller and now successful Matt Damon film The Martian which is misleading if not entirely inaccurate The two books stories narrative styles characters and overall tones are actually very different Almost all the details about this book do not resemble The Martian at all However they do share a key similarity For me The Martian is not a great book because of the humour detailed science or its focus on survival against the odds it s a great book because it makes you feel tiny It s a breathtakingly extraordinary concept that we are forced to imagine being stranded hundreds of thousands of miles away from anyone else Trapped on a distant planet where pretty much everything can kill you Putting myself in Mark Watney s shoes was overwhelming feeling all alone in the vast expanse of space Having no clue how this situation could possibly end in survivalSleeping Giants gave me a similar feeling A feeling of wide eyed wonder at the suggestion of this possibility the discovery of giant metal body parts deep underground giant body parts that predate the human technology necessary to create them The implication being if humans couldn t possibly have made this giant who didThe story is told through a series of interviews with a nameless interviewer as well as the occasional journal entry and news article Unlike The Martian this isn t propelled by a single character s humourous narrative but instead allows us a look at all the people involved in this project in uncovering the body parts finding out how they work what it all means and trying to keep their sanity as the world becomes and insane What I am is very much a function of what I am not If the other is the Muslim world then I am the Judeo Christian world If the other is from thousands of light years away I am simply human Redefine alterity and you can erase boundaries We see how this discovery and the subseuent revelations affect the world Imagine what this means for humanity It is the suggestion that we are not alone and are not the most advanced creatures in the universe What were these giant body parts created for Are they a message or a weapon What does this mean for religions Is someone out there waiting for usIt is perhaps not as warm a sci fi novel as The Martian It feels darker frightening giving us less reason to believe the author owes us a happy ending The ending is haunting and unexpected paving the way for a seuel that should be eually thought provoking I for one really want to know what happens nextBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Store

Ted   But some can never stop searching for answers   Rose Franklin is now 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 provenance of relic What’s clear is that Rose and her compatriots are on the edge of unraveling history’s most perplexing discovery and figuring out what it portends for humanity But once the pieces of the puzzle are in place will the result prove to be an instrument of lasting peace or a weapon of mass destruction  Advance praise for Sleeping Giants  “This stellar debut novel masterfully blends together elements of sci fi political thriller and apocalyptic fiction A page turner of the highest order. This book is a work of art Even though it was written in interviews journal entries articles and transcripts the details were never once left out and there was not a single moment when a certain interview felt detached from the rest of the book which is extraordinary All the files merged together very well and once you finish reading a chapter the part of the story revealed in that chapter adds to everything you already know and forms a steady timeline of events which is amazing It was put together incredibly well the amount of planning that must have gone into this book is mindblowing The book is was very original and even though it was a new the concept the details the facts the science and the characters were very well thought out The amount of research that must have been done is tremendous It is definitely very intriguing and kept me on my toes through its entirety The fact that the story is narrated in interviews makes it all the interesting because we don t know what happened in the time between the previous interview and the interview you are reading till you get to the core of the interview you re currently reading It was a very engaging book the amount of theories I personally formulated is crazy The entire concept was extremely well done and the Sci Fi aspect of the book was one of the best I have read so far The story maintains its mystery throughout the book and even when the book finished it still feels like an enigma because no matter how much you read there always seems to be to know The integral concept of the book was carried out through the book very well and I hope it continues to do so in the rest of the seriesA young girl named Rose Franklin falls into a giant metal hand when she was young And now Dr Rose Franklin has been put in charge of finding out what the hand is and finding the rest of the parts to what will be a metal giant Now nobody knows what this is how it got here or even what we re supposed to do with it We can only hope that the giant is not a weapon that will lead to mass destructionThe best part of the story at least in my opinion is the interviewer We don t know who the interviewer is and neither does anyone in the book He maintains his anonymity throughout the book He seems to have an extraordinary amount of power not like magic but in the sense that he has what seems to be an endless amount of connections in places of power No matter where the book goes the fact that the giant could be the strongest weapon known to mankind doesn t seem to bother me as much as WHO IS THE INTERVIEWER It s constantly nagging me in the back of my head and if I don t find out soon I m going to go mad The book is written very well and doesn t lose sight of the plot The science fiction concept is written to the point of perfection Each of the characters play a major role in the story and I love each of them for what they bring into the story The cover is beautiful in it s simplicity and the title matches the concept flawlessly I can t wait to see where this story is going to take me I rate this book 5 stars
