exciting reading

I am reading a really good novel, the first in a series. Relic is a 1995 novel, written by Douglas J. Preston and Lincoln Child. I think it has also been turned into a movie, but I haven't seen it, yet.

The story weaves several themes smoothly and artfully throughout the narrative. The action builds slowly and suspensefully. The characters--both major and very minor ones--seem very lifelike and realistic. Some interesting computer science, biology and botany facts are thrown into the mix, too.

I'm just getting to the good part now, and it is exciting!

Hopefully, the rest of the book will build to the proper climax. I now have a new series I can follow.

If you haven't read it yet, you might check it out at your local library.

My mom is a big fan of that series, I haven't gotten around to reading it yet, but she's been recommending it to me for years! You may want to check out the What Are You Reading Thread, we already have going.

I am a great fan of Preston/Child having read or listened to about a dozen of their books in the last few months. Rene Auberjonois narrates some of the later books.

Don't bother about the movie. Pendergast isn't even a character in the movie though his role is combined with that of D'Agosta making the movie D'Agosta a mixture of the two men (though younger than either of them in the book).

I think the Kathoga was one of Stan Winston's last big projects though...
