Title: Sleeping Giants (Themis Files #1)
Author: Sylvain Neuvel
Publisher: Del Rey
Published: This will come out April 26th 2016
How I got this book: I was lucky enough to get an arc from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
My rating: 5 stars
17 years ago: A girl from South Dakota falls through the earth, then wakes up dozens of feet below ground on the palm of what seems to be a giant metal hand.
Today: She is a top-level physicist leading a team of people to understand exactly what the hand is, where it came from, and what it portends for humanity. A swift and spellbinding tale told almost exclusively through transcriptions conducted by a mysterious and unnamed character, this is a unique debut that describes a hunt for truth, power, and giant body parts.
I never read sci-fi so I don’t have much to compare this to, but I did love it. I finished it in one sitting because I wasn’t able to put it down. I’m so glad I had the chance to read it through NetGalley.
