    One thought on “Excavation”

    1. This is the first James Rollins book I have read and I can safely say that after this venture there are going to be 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 Indiana Jones movie I have watched and this book does go around a similar setting The book opens with a Dominican priest almost 500 years in the past on the run form a group of Inca warriors and his attemp [...]

    2. ExcavationWhat about the action Well, there was 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 I liked it a lot, I found the action less exciting than some of the other Rollin s reads Don t misunderstand me, I liked what was in the book, but compared Ice hunt, or ia, it seemed suspense to build tensi [...]

    3. 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 somethingI assume some kind of treasure I ve read other books by this author which I ve enjoyed and this book did help pass the time, so thanks Mr Rollins as I did need all distractions possible Oddly, I found myself craving a TRUE archeology adventure, so I am now reading The Lost City of the Mon [...]

    4. 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 fact that it s not one of his Sigma Force novels best described as scientists with guns and so lacks that over reaching plot strands that connects all those novels, or likely that he seems to share the [...]

    5. a outstanding novel its 2nd book of james rollins as i read a great bookish Rizwan vai suggested me once to read that book amazed me so did this one i wish this writer will continuously keep me in the loop.if any body like techno thriller with historical fantasy background he she should give James Rollins a try happy readingeers

    6. James Rollins has really been filling that archaeological action adventure thriller niche in my library Although it could be ridiculously melodramatic in places, Excavation was even better than his first book, Subterranean It spent less time setting things up and practically plunged right into the action and mystery right away It also rolled along at a brisker pace I didn t have the need to skim like I did with Subterranean Rollins is a fun author his books aren t high literature, but they re ce [...]

    7. James Rollins is one author whose laundry list might also become a best seller if he pursues it , and the reasons were pretty obvious to readers like us who had read him when he were only marking his presence This novel was a winner right from the first page, and when it finally concluded with sufficient hints that may be elongated into a sequel at a later phase like many other readers I had also realised that I had been holding my breath for some time It is a very good read Rollins usual high s [...]

    8. 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 Don t get me wrong you have to suspend belief a good deal and roll with the popcorn, but it s just a fun and exciting tale I ve been eying Deep Fathom and after this, I m definitely going to check it out.While a bit epic in scope, I believe I also have to [...]

    9. 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 nanobiotech , but after that, the whole book was a large cliche The token black guy died The requisite homosexual survived impossible odds, managed to stumble into miraculous discoveries, and was one of the heroes [...]

    10. I love a good adventure novel, and James Rollins is on the cutting edge of the modern action thriller that pits man woman against some strange discovery and throws them into seemingly unwinnable situations, only to see them most of them at least come out the other side on the basis of wit and skill alone Excavation is the type of novel I can t turn down jungle adventure, ruins exploration, and intrigue Yes, I know a million and one people think Indiana Jones any time you mention such things thes [...]

    11. This is my second James Rollins book and from what I remember of the last book I read of his Subterranean , this feels like the same exact story In fact, the author describes the setting as Subterranean multiple times throughout this novel so really you could probably interchange the titles of the two books I read and it wouldn t matter I m convinced Rollins is a solid writer because he s got so many books out there at my local B N and his books tend to get pretty good overall review scores here [...]

    12. Excavation By James Rollins Smoothie Review James Rollin is the a master of treasure hunting, tomb raiding adventures as Ludlum is to spy novels and as Crichton is to science fiction It is a bit of a tall claim But this is my fourth book I ve read by him and so far it proves to be true He has not proven me wrong with the exception of the Sigma force novels So now I m about knee deep into the James Rollins novels and the latest adventure is called Excavation So what is it about It centers on a pr [...]

    14. After The De Vinci Code this was one book that I really could not put down I was actually running with the characters By the last chapter I was feeling a little let down for it was sounding so unreal BUT by the time I was reading the last three pages I was completely floored for it really made sense to me one of the best reads in a long long time I love James Rollins and I am going to make sure I have all his books D

    15. Well that escalated quickly.The beginning of the book was pretty good and promising but it quickly went downhill and just became worse and worse The discovery of the door and the exploding mummy set up the story well and I thought that this was going to be a good book Well guess again.We went from a collapsed temple because of course some stupid character would have been in charge of the dig, to tarantula s, to monsters in a necropolis, to a still intact and living Incan village with a leader th [...]

    16. 2 5 This is a novel delivering high value entertainment for a day when you decide to not immerse yourself in morally invigorating, serious and enlightening narratives James Rollins Excavation was my first brush with the genre of archaeology It s premise is based on adventure, action and mystery reminding one of Dan Brown s The Da Vinci s Code in terms of fusing fiction with non fictional histories I have absolutely no knowledge of Incan civilizations, and took the facts of history references of [...]

    17. It only took me 206 pages to realize I had read this adventure tale many many years ago and I hadn t documented it A mummified priest is found in an unlikely location in Peru Gold that isn t gold A Roman Catholic secret group in the lineage of the Inquisitors Yes, I finished reading the entire book again Rollins always gives you a good adventure.

    18. James Rollins may very well be my favorite author This book didn t do it for me, even tho it is in the same style of all the books I love by him, especially the SIGMA Force novels Rollins writes book that I would call a blend of the Sci Fi, Action, and Techno thriller genres This book had all of those elements but the story never hooked me The character s were dull and predictable and at times that plot seemed over the top Things kept getting weirder and nothing was ever really explained in ways [...]

    19. James Rollins is not a great writer You must know that before picking up this book His dialogue is stilted and cheesy, his characters lack character, his romances taste like a corn and cheese casserole In fact, if this novel was a dish, it would be a combination of lasagna, pizza, nachos, and mac and cheese, with a bit of Parmesan sprinkled on top and a light brie for an appetizer In short, its cheesy If one is willing or able to wade through the sticky cheese fondue, however, they will find an [...]

    20. I ve read and enjoyed several of Rollins novels and this one followed along the same formula If you read them all in succession, I can see how it can get old and predictable, but every once in awhile I find myself in the mood for this type of suspense However, while I enjoyed the history and scientific aspect, much of this book seemed really far fetched I also couldn t figure out how any of it was supposed to be It just didn t make a lot of sense Fortunately, for me, the epilogue kind of saved t [...]

    21. I received SUBTERRANEAN as a gift and enjoyed it so much much that I had to pluck this from the shelf.James Rollins writes as if your in an narrative about Indiana Jones The adventurer quality is never lost in the suspense and horror, even when navigating a Pre Columbian temple with traps to chill the blood and treasures to boggled the mind.This appeals to a broad spectrum of interests and for me that s perfection Rollin s unique voice thrives in the subterranean realms that his characters find [...]

    22. A bit of an Indiana Jones type of adventure thriller, along with ancient booby traps and lots of spiders Ignoring my scepticism regarding the likely hood of the traps still working after 400 years, and whether anyone really could make anything so complex, this was a fast paced enjoyable thriller Just enough detail to make you either like or despise the characters, and, for me, a good plot I m not sure about the ending I liked it initially, but the I think about it the less happy with it I am

    23. Wow What a read You don t read James Rollins for realism you read it for pure entertainment and this book delivered Excavation is a fast, paced novel taking the reader around the world as a small group of archaeologists stumble upon on of sciences all time secrets In addition, Rollins always seems to have a tie into the religious world, and this book weaved that theme throughout the book For a quick, entertaining read grab this book, sit down and enjoy.

    24. Terrific adventure novel I d love to share my thoughts about the plot, but even hints would be huge spoilers I ll just say that the story is connected with the ancient Inca mysteries and the Holy Inquisition, but in modern times and everything is connected to a mysterious metal, known as the blood of the devil Great characters support the interesting plot and the breathtaking action Highly recommended.

    25. Great book Kept me on edge for most of the book SpoliersI realize I just read The Devil Colony and these two books were written a few years apart However, they both were about nanobots If I had not read them back to back, I don t think it would have bothered me Excavation was a great book, the action kept me involved in the book and couldn t put it down Philip, reminded me of Mr Smith from the original Lost in Space.

    26. Decent adventure romp with some tense moments, less explosions than first volume of Sigma Force, lapses of logic that were noticeable but not too bothersome and fun story full of familiar tropes but in not too overdone mix All in all, a fun engaging read to pass some time my definition of commute read.

    27. Now the thng I like about James Rollins is he actually takes the time to research all of the information he writes about He tells us what is true in what he writes in his novels and he tries very hard to keep it as realistic as possible Seeing as he does this it makes me feel as though I m right there myself fighting in the jungle, but as usual no disappointment from me, Excavation loved it

    28. Oh my gosh, this is such a fun, fun book Ridiculous, I roared out loud at the albino tarantulas And come on, doesn t he know the difference between a CT scan and an MRI Only in an MRI would the metal in the mummy explode, dude Still, totally, totally awesome This is the best airplane book in the entire world.
