James Rollins - Amazonia Book Review

Updated on September 5, 2014

If I make some typos in this article, it’s because I was up until 1:30 am reading this Amazonian book by James Rollins. Therefore, I’m practically sleep-typing this review right now!

While this book did start a little slow, it had just enough mystery and intrigue to keep me reading until he had the ball rolling. Then it was all downhill and it didn’t stop until the end.

If you like books with almost non-stop action, this book is for you. If you like sci-fi stories that while you’re reading the book, you can actually almost believe the story could truly happen, and yet, when you pull your nose back to reality your common sense says, “you wish”, this book is for you. If you liked the movie Avatar, you’ll love this book. This book is not for unimaginative, nonfiction lovers. It’s for people who read books to escape to another place that doesn’t really exist, and trust me, I love these kinds of books.

The majority of the story takes place in the amazon jungle, where great crocodilian caimans eat people, and where the mysterious Blood Jaguars live. The plot? A group of scientists, Rangers, and a couple locals take a trek through the woods to find out how a one-armed man who got lost in the jungle four years ago could suddenly come out with two. What they find is something much more sinister than they expect…

The book was definitely worth its price, and it isn’t the last I buy from the author James Rollins!

      I don't think this book is for me, but you've done a good job in reviewing it.

      Great review. Amazonia intrigues me. I may have to pick up a copy. It's great that you invite visitors to your lens to promote one of their lenses.

      Nice review. I do like sci-fi, so I'll have to investigate these. James Rollins sounds like my kind of writer, but then of course, I like Stephen King, Dean Koontz and John Saul too, so that's probably why. Thanks for sharing this review.

      Well I feel like reading that book right now! I love the way you write, it's interesting and above all it's quite funny. I loved the first sentence of this review.

      Not a great fiction reader myself, but a good review nonetheless.

      This sounds very good. Great review, BTW. I've read a couple of Rollins books, and have several more on my list. Looks like I'll have to add this one!
