Waiting on Wednesday: Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel

74757-new2bwow“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week I’m featuring Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel.  Due for release in April 2016:

sleeping giants.jpgWorld War Z meets The Martian. This inventive first novel will please devoted fans of sci-fi as well as literary readers hoping a smart thriller will sneak up on them.

17 years ago: A girl in 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 that hand is, where it came from, and what it portends for humanity. A swift and spellbinding tale told almost exclusively through transcriptions of interviews conducted by a mysterious and unnamed character, this is a unique debut that describes a hunt for truth, power, and giant body parts.

    I feel like I have been seeing the cover around for MONTHS waiting for it to be released. Maybe it’s because I’ve been looking at the cover, but this is the first time I’ve heard the comparison to the Martin – which is not a bad thing at all 🙂

      It does seem to have been around for a while. I’m looking forward to it though.
