«Non siamo i primi a entrare in questa grotta. Ma chi ci ha preceduto non ne è mai uscito...»
Di ritorno da uno scavo, l'archeologa Ashley Carter rimane sconcertata nel trovare dei militari ad attenderla in casa. In una grotta nei pressi di una base militare in Antartide, è stato rinvenuto per caso un antico idolo scolpito nel diamante e, sebbene dalle prime analisi risulti che quell'oggetto risalga all'epoca preistorica, non è stato possibile collegarlo a nessuna civiltà conosciuta. E adesso l’esercito sta organizzando una spedizione archeologica che s'inoltri tra i ghiacci in cerca di risposte... e di altri tesori simili. E vuole che sia Ashley a guidarla. Per lei, è un'occasione da cogliere al volo. Tuttavia, già all’ingresso di quel labirinto di tunnel di ghiaccio, Ashley e la sua squadra avvertono una presenza inquietante aleggiare su di loro. Come se qualcuno – o qualcosa – li stesse seguendo e controllando. E, quando scoprono una grotta piena di diamanti enormi, al cui interno sono incastonati dei teschi umani, per loro è l’inizio di un incubo. Perché sono diventate prede di un nemico spietato e sfuggente, pronto a tutto pur d’impedire al gruppo di portare alla luce il suo segreto...

More like Fraggle Rock than a serious adventure book I’m a big fan of Rollins, when the guy is good he is very good and the entertainment is grand, sadly for me this was not the case but reading the 1-3 star reviews was comforting ( and hilarious) enough to know that I’m not crazy and that this book Leggi tutto
Subterranean is an uninspired collection of clichés featuring dull, unlikable characters doing foolish things. Rollins is apparently incapable of writing women, mistaking shrill bitchiness for empowered and simpering helplessness for feminine. Ashley, his main character and "empowered" woman, is dr Leggi tutto
I love James Rollins books, however, Subterranean is not one of my favorites. It's not bad, I love the whole world below the surface with strange creatures, and of course, the fact that this team that is sent to explore is not the first team sent down, not that they know that. Alas, there is a kid in Leggi tutto
I grew up hating novels. Sad but true. As a child, the books I was introduced to (by school) were horribly boring and not relevant to my life at all. I grew up believing that all novels were boring, and by high school, I cringed at the sight of novels. I read comic books throughout high school and c Leggi tutto
I can't believe that I didn't review this book. (Sigh) And I call myself a James Rollins fan... Okay, short review. ... no really, I mean it this time. Fast paced book. This one wasn't as much the pace as the level of tension and intensity...okay, it was the pace too. The book flew by and left me wan Leggi tutto
This was my second James Rollins being Amazonia. And personally I found myself enjoying this book a lot more then Amazonia. Once again the adventure was great. And James Rollins does such a good job at crafting a really fun story that I really enjoyed reading. While this book was long it never reall Leggi tutto
How to write a best selling thriller: Start by introducing each of your characters and summarize their life history in a single paragraph. Each person should have a stellar resume, while being young and attractive, yet totally down-to-earth. For example, a sexy 26 year-old world-renowned bioengineer Leggi tutto
I made the mistake of asking my dad for a book recommendation and he recommended this. He has pretty terrible taste in books a lot of the time. Subterranean is a suspenseful book in some sense. But every event that happened was obviously setting up the next event. Every character was a stereotype. T Leggi tutto
Subterranean by James Rollins I like books that have some exploration that discovers something amazing but hazardous too. The danger could be real or fantasy, a person or otherworldly, and the discovery itself could change history. This book has these things. I have read a couple of this author's book Leggi tutto
What a thrilling, captivating page-turner. Wow, this was a terrific book. A group of scientists led by top archaeologist Ashley Carter are selected to investigate a subterranean labyrinth in Antarctica. Things don't go as planned and the action and excitement never let up. The set up is good, the st Leggi tutto
