FREE READ ¾ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB î James RollinsI m a little bit embarrassed to give this book a 4 but there you go It s a guilty pleasure I guess because the book is kind of ridiculous in a testosterone fueled Indiana Jones meets Mission Impossible kind of way If this tells you anything I nearly downgraded it to a 3 because of the cannibals Yes cannibalsI was about 60 pages into the book before I realized that it was part of a series Some of you know that reading a series out of order is one of my BIGGEST PET PEEVES EVER so I think it represents a therapeutic breakthrough
That I Kept Reading Really It S Just The BookI
reading Really it s the book borrowed and I didn t want to keep it for an unusually long time while I tracked down and read all of the books that came before itVery basic plot summary Secret military ish agency must stop end of the world by figuring out the connection between Marco Polo and a strange bacterial outbreak on Christmas Island There s some code breaking and Test logiciel en pratique historical speculation that will appeal to the Da Vinci Code enthusiasts out there And did I mention that there are cannibals I trulyate being in this position A friend Two Badges The Lives of Mona Ruiz here on Goodreads with whom I usually agree recommended that I try Rollins Now admittedly this is not the first in the series and I don t often start a series in the middle but I was looking for an audio that I could listen to as I was busy with mindless tasks I m straining not to make a jokeereI wish I could say I liked this book I wanted to but I just don tdidn t I was relieved to reach the end To give credit where credits duethe reader A Queen's Spy Plus The Tudor Heresy - Mercenary For Hire Series: Tudor Historical Fiction Novels - Adventure Fiction (Tudor Mystery Trials) hadis problems also At one point The Structure of Biblical Authority he read MI6 as M16 ande read the word archangel as arch angel as in arch villain There were other miss pronunciations that bugged meStill the book itself get s it share of the credit We take a bit of Niebla historical fact and a smidgen of science and then we use it as a spring boardere to launch off into total absurdity at least that s Confederate Waterloo how itit me I m a big fantasy fan and I m a big action fan so you d think suspension of disbelief wouldn t be a prob After finishing The Judas Strain I remain a HUGE James Rollins fan I think Map of Bones and Sandstorm are my favorite books in the Sigma Force series but really they are all superb adventures and The Judas Strain is no exceptionAfter reading 4 books in the series I m completely invested in these characters I ave images of them in my ead I know and love or The Eatonville Anthology hate their personalities I root for their success and worry at their failures and ultimately I want them to save the world I think that s something special about a series of books as opposed to a stand alone novel you really become attached to the people you re reading aboutThe Judas Strainas so much going on pandemics cannibalism cruise ship The TM Techniue An intro Transcendental Meditation Teachings Maharishi Mahesh YOgi Arkana hijacking Marco Polo and lots It spans the globe from Washington DC to Christmas Island The Vatican Istanbul and finally the ancient city of Angkor Wat in CambodiaDo yourself and favor and Google the locations mentioned around the world in Rollins books He basesis adventures on real places so it is fascinating to submerge yourself in the imagery of the locations by looking them up Angkor Wat for example is incredible looking in photos and it was so fun to really see what was being described in the bookAt this point I feel like I really cant go wrong with Rollins style AN ANCIENT PANDEMIC CAUSING VIRUS whose origin and cure is linked to the ANGKOR WAT and the mysterious return voyage of MARCO POLO from the court of KUBLAI KHANyep it looks like another job for SIGMA FORCEThe SIGMA Force is one of the truly delicious concepts to be introduced into the popcorn eating page turning actiony spy guy thrill o rama genre PhD toting scientific brainiacs with Navy Seal kill skills and James Bond spy craft minus babes and boozedamn SIGMA is a covert ops team working under the auspices of the DOD as an agency of DARPA Defense Advance Research Projects Agency SIGMA is charged with tracking down and neutralizing threats in the form of advanced technology whether biological chemical or mechanical The threats are always large the explosions are always loud and the pace with a few exceptions I mention in my gripes is always on turbo Now in a less capable story teller s Das Glücksbüro hands this Michael Baysummer blockbuster sounding novel could get out of control uickly and begin to reek of cheese Fear not because James Rollins is a very capable story teller and maintains very good command ofis plot His novels are very well researched and incorporate fascinating real life Bodies in the Bog and the Archaeological Imagination historical events and mysteries whiche then extrapolates from to create a wild story with enough factualhistorical background to keep suspension of disbelief possible Despite my not uite 4 star rating for reasons set forth below this is a seri.
