James Rollins - Amazonia Book Review
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!
