Il professor Henry Conklin, durante alcuni scavi archeologici sulle Ande peruviane, porta alla luce una mummia perfettamente conservata, che potrebbe confermare l’esistenza di un’avanzata civiltà precedente agli Inca. Dopo aver lasciato la direzione dei lavori al nipote Sam, Conklin torna negli Stati Uniti per effettuare le analisi di laboratorio. I risultati sono sorprendenti: nel cranio della mummia è presente una sostanza simile all’oro, ma dalla composizione chimica sconosciuta e dalle proprietà sconcertanti… Nel frattempo, Sam e la sua squadra proseguono l’esplorazione del sito e trovano un passaggio segreto che conduce a una necropoli, dove ben presto avvertono una presenza inquietante...

Review Book:- Excavation Author:- James Rollins This book surprised me. I thought it would be a little 'fluff' read- i love history, archaeology, and ancient civilizations so this sounded like it would be a good palate cleanser. It was much better than i thought it would be! I mean the writing is a
ছোটবেলা থেকেই যেসকল জিনিস এর প্রতি আগ্রহ আমার তার মধ্যে একটা হল আরকিওলজি বা প্রত্নতত্ব। পুরানো সভ্যতা নিয়ে এই আগ্রহের কারণেই এই সংক্রান্ত বইগুলো আমি গোগ্রাসে গিলে ফেলি । আর বই পড়ার দিক থেকে আমার অন্যতম পছন্দের জনরা হল থ্রিলার । তাই যখন এই বই এর সিনোপ্সিস পড়ি তখন থেকেই পড়ার ইচ্ছা ছিল বইটার । কিন্ Leggi tutto
This is the first James Rollins book I have read and I can safely say that after this venture there are going to be more James Rollins books in my future. Never before had I experimented with a book like this which felt like watching a full length Indiana Jones movie. Kingdom of skulls was the first Leggi tutto
Excavation What about the action? Well, there was more going on than at a three ringed flea circus at the Westminster Dog show! And of course I can’t talk about them because it would spoil the fun. Yes, I heave a heavy sigh because there’s so much to talk about. In truth, as much as I liked this, and Leggi tutto

I normally quite like James Rollins' novels, but this one? Not so much. Although it is in his usual pseudo sci-fi style of writing which I have no problem with, I don't know whether the reason I wasn't really that sold on this one is due to the rather ridiculous (even for him) plot devices used, that Leggi tutto
This book was recommened by one of my students (I teach high school Physics) along with "Fragment" by Warren Fahy. I approached it with the same open mind, but was not nearly as entertained or impressed by the writing. Excavation did have a mildly interesting premise (gold-like silicon-based nanobio Leggi tutto
Rather, I should say, "I think I liked it" as I read it while heavily medicated (after a surgery and while in a hospital bed). I remember very little: various factions are somewhere in the jungle looking for something...I assume some kind of treasure. I've read other books by this author which I've
I'm beginning to love James Rollins. He merges the Adventure antics of Clive Cussler (minus the bromance) and the contemporary Sci-Fi Horror found in the best novels by Michael Crichton. I loved his book Subterranean and I enjoyed this book even more. Don't get me wrong - you have to suspend belief
