    One thought on “The Relic”

    1. Sometimes I really want a hot dog.I don t care that it s filled with crunchy bits of pig hoofs or that it s encased in a horse s transverse colon or even that it will provide enough sodium to last me for the next 75 years I just want to bite into that thick, juicy tube o meat and let the uniquely succulent flavor of indulgence course through my veins even as it drips greasy trails of superfluous yumminess down my chin That s kind of how I feel about thrillers I don t read them all the time, but [...]

    2. Have you ever read a book that was so intense and absorbing in some areas you were reading so fast, and you thought, did I read all of that part This is one of those books.I have to thank Matthew for his recommendation on this one.This was an enjoyable thriller read for me Since I had worked before in an Art Museum as security personal and then curator, I could place myself in that atmosphere.It was a great thriller with different twists I can t wait to read from these authorsThis is a perfect [...]

    3. This is another book series of books I was introduced to by my late wife we were married 34 years before she passed so there were quite a few books we ended up sharing, sometimes to the surprise of each of us I introduced her to things like epic fantasy she introed me to things like, well Preston Child or Koontz I am surprised not only that I liked it them but that I decided to give it 4 stars This is a surprisingly absorbing read and the Pendergast character while he could have ended up a caric [...]

    4. Every sixty to seventy million years or so, life starts getting very well adapted to its environment Too well adapted, perhaps There is a population explosion of the successful life forms Then, suddenly a new species appears out of the blue It is almost always a predatory creature, a killing machine It tears through the host population, killing, feeding, multiplying Slowly at first, then ever faster The has always been an attractive source for exploration for the scientific community There are s [...]

    5. RelicSome thoughts.Now, this isn t really a review, simply because too much time has passed since I actually read the novel to form any objective and cohesive opinion on its literary merit What I would like to focus on is what remained with me.I m sticking to my original rating This novel is one of the few that my wife and I still discuss on a rather regular basis, even after all this time Relic ticked quite a few of the right boxes Such as 1 Atmospheric setting In this case, the museum When nig [...]

    6. I loved Relic and definitely plan to read books in this series Relic was entertaining and suspenseful from the beginning to the end It was totally riveting and the tension just builds and builds I literally could not keep turning the pages fast enough.What I loved about it The creature was intelligent, cunning and scary enough to freak you out And the mystery behind the origin of the creature was well thought out.The setting of the dark chambers of the museum was fantastic for a creature to sta [...]

    7. 3.5 stars rounded up because I liked the characters.Well I started this in 2016, so it counts Bahahaha Slammed the last 40% last night when I got home most of it and finished the Epilogue this morning Woof Talk about action and pacing and that revelation in the last few pages Yikes Starting this, I felt like I was reading a Jurassic Park knockoff Not in a bad way, but it was all super sciencey and talked about a prehistoric creature from the The museum setting was fantastic it really lent itself [...]

    8. A good mix of science and suspense Reminds me of Michael Crichton Very thrilling lots of good twists that I did not see coming.

    9. I ll be damned This silly book turned out to be one big, over the top, cheesy, load of fun I enjoyed it quite a bit I ve read some reviews where people called The Relic a mystery horror and I guess in some ways it is but I tend to look at it as a crazy, disaster, monster film If you took The Position Adventure, threw in a furry, brain eating, velociraptor, and then had a total nincompoop in charge of the rescue mission that would be this book Yes it s that crazy There are lots of WTF moments Wer [...]

    10. I ve never rode a rollercoaster because am too chicken to ride one While reading this book, I said to myself, Is this is how a rollercoaster ride would feel The extent of thrill boderdering on horror What an adrenaline rush has been, this ride I mean read DEnough said I am off to read the sequel s.

    11. Some books come into your life exactly at the right time for you to welcome them with open arms This is one of them I wanted fast paced action, and I got it I wanted half real half madeup pseudo science kind of a la Crichton, and I got it I wanted scary, and I got that by the bucketload I wanted at least one great character to get to know and care about and have fun hanging out with, and I got him I mean, Pendergast is amazing and his personality is so endearing I d have a hard time finding reas [...]

    12. Relic is a perfect example of the vast sea of things that the human mind doesn t know, and of fear and panic over a monster unseen Gripping, violent and frightening, this book is disturbing and unsettling but very well written.

    13. RELIC is the book that launched the brilliant Agent Pendergast series As with all Preston Child books, this one offers plenty of science, adventure, and mystery The Pendergast series is a testament to genuine genius on the part of these two amazing authors.

    14. 3.5 stars.Relic marks a promising start in my attempt to read crimes mysteries thrillers aside from Dan Brown s Robert Langdon books.This novel has all the necessary ingredients to satisfy the requirements of a page turning thriller Set in the massive New York Museum of Natural History, the element of horror around the gruesome and brutal killings has just the right atmospheric tone to make the narrative creepy enough without being too cheesy The story started with two separate Prologues that a [...]

    15. UPDATED REVIEW 3.5 stars This was a great mystery thriller that was raised above the norm by two elements The first was the inclusion of a very interesting SF supernatural element into an otherwise straight forward crime drama This may have had a positive impact on me since my reading tastes tend to run towards speculative fiction and so the X file element was very welcome The second was the character of Aloysius Pendergast, the charming, brilliant, FBI agent with a Southern accent and an open [...]

    16. This was recommended to me by several visitors to my site, but I m sorry folks, I simply couldn t finish it Cardboard, cliched characters and a monster on a rampage in a museum don t quite add up to a great read I gave it a good effort, the quick readability of it got me halfway through it but I don t care how it ends or who lives or dies I m moving on.

    17. What we have here is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma When I was a young horror watching gal, I used to watch Relic I didn t know it was based on a book, but I enjoyed its fun monster movie gimmicks set in a conveniently too dark museum The past few years I ve seen mention of these authors, and even had an unread book of theirs donning my shelves, yet I knew nothing about them I wasn t sure if they wrote horror, mystery, but knew I d figure it out eventually edited to note I still [...]

    18. MINI REVIEW A chilling thriller that takes place mostly in a colossal museum in NYC Don t be fooled if you hate museums It s still very interesting with a combination of horror, sleuthing and melodrama Characters are mostly vivid and while one could argue several plot points were predictable they were still satisfying BTW, the movie is a terribly poor representation of the book CHARACTERS DIALOGUE A minus STORY PLOT POINTS A minus to A CREEPINESS HORROR B plus OVERALL GRADE A minus to A WHEN REA [...]

    19. Whew I just finished Relic and it was mind blowing The pacing and atmosphere make this an intense read like nothing else The story is simple straightforward in the words of Hudson Aliens , its a bug hunt But what a bug hunt I am still getting over it.I have seen the movie before and it is quite forgettable The book is way better in terms of characterization, the dialogues as well as the sense of creeping dread one gets as the book progresses.In conclusion, it is a great read Go for it My blog ha [...]

    20. I have a confession to make Do not judge me too harshly Although I enjoy reading classic literary novels, and respectable Pulitzer Prize and Booker Prize award winning books, and challenging books that are taught in Great Literature classes, and informative topical non fiction I also am a fan of the Silly Saturday SyFy horror movies I watch them all day and into the night Ok, ok, I look away a lot The traditional classic horror scenarios of being trapped and hunted down one by one on a moving tr [...]

    21. Scary Yep, freaked me out as much as the movie Book managed to keep me guessing who was going to survive and who was going to be lunch.Brainy filler pun I loved the backstory, setting, scientific explanation and detail for everyting The anthropologist in me was purrrrrrrring like a kitten.A bit long winded, but very good.Relic would have gotten 4 stars, but one of the supporting protagonists was a big game trophy hunter So I m gonna do that thing where I don t support the book and dock it even a [...]

    22. Scientist goes to Brazilian rainforest Finds cursed tribal idol Relic finds it s way to a New York Museum In local legend, the Kothoga tribe was a shadowy group, a witchdoctor cult They were supposed to be able to control demons There was a creature a familiar if you will they used for vengeance killings That was Mbwun, He Who Walks On All Fours Then, Whittlesey came across this figurine, and some other objects, packed them up, and sent them back to the Museum.Carnage ensues in the corridors and [...]

    23. I was in the mood for some monster mayhem, and THE RELIC has long been a favorite movie, so I finally got round to the original book, and I m glad I did.It s a fine example of the genre and reads a bit like an extended monster of the week episode of the X Files, with some added gore and thrills The claustrophobic nature of the museum at night is a great venue for the jump scares and the monster itself is well realized, and suitably nasty in its habits.There s an unfortunate sag in the middle wha [...]

    24. I picked this up because I never read this kind of book I can t say it s 100% a 4 star book, but it s a great adventure romp, and for the change of pace I bumped it up.Something mysterious is in the NYC museum, it s hunting people, there s lots of blood and magic and murder and I really had fun with the plot Very B movie fun I LOVED the details about the Museum of Natural History, it feels very well researched and made me want to go snoop around the basement of that building next time I m in NYC [...]

    25. I admit honestly having seen the movie first and I liked it in a B movie monster show By coincedence I found a 1st edition Hardback at a flea market and decided to buy it to read it on one of my daily traintrip from and to work And suddenly I found that the writers of this novel were very shortchanged by the movie However I do hope some folks discovered the writing of messieurs Preston Child because in my humble opinion they are the current best writers in thriller adventure fantastic novel.This [...]

    26. Surprisingly goodI thought this was an airport type bookyou know enough for the moment and then you leave it somewhere and never think about it again.It did really draw me in I kept thinking that it would make a great suspenseful horror movie It has all the elementsgood characters, hateful antagonists and pretty Hollywood boys and girls playing smart historians and scientists and most importantly ancient curses and horrifying deaths What is up Hollywood Here s your next Jurassic Park

    27. Totally a 5 book for me It has all i could ever want, science babble not that I understand a lot but I do learn a lot of new facts , tension suspence, great characters all developed individuals etc It s been a few days since I ve read it which is a shame as my review would probably be a bit emotional I m off to book 2 right now and it seems that s a great ride as well

    28. Echoes of Jurassic Park There s a monster on the loose in NY museum A bit dated and smart mouthed, but a fast paced and fun read I enjoyed reading it.

    29. This one is a re read for me I read the book right after the movie came out because I loved the film so much I found Chuck Palahniuk and Thomas Harris the same way Fight Club and Silence of the Lambs were both movies I had no idea were originally books As with most film adaptations, the books were much better Which brings me to Relic Not only is the book better than the movie, but it makes the movie look stupid by comparison Note I still LOVE the movie, so I don t say that lightly What Relic doe [...]
