Beschreibung

If you loved The Passage, World War Z, The Martian or Interstellar: this is a must-read thriller for you.

Deadwood, USA. A girl sneaks out just before dark to ride her new bike. Suddenly, the ground disappears beneath her. Waking up at the bottom of a deep pit, she sees an emergency rescue team above her. The people looking down see something far stranger...

"We always look forward. We never look back."

That girl grows up to be Dr. Rose Franklyn, a brilliant scientist and the leading world expert on what she discovered. An enormous, ornate hand made of an exceptionally rare metal, which predates all human civilisation on the continent.

"But this thing ... it's different. It challenges us. It rewrites history."

An object whose origins and purpose are perhaps the greatest mystery humanity has ever faced. Solving the secret of where it came from - and how many more parts may be out there - could change life as we know it.

"It dares us to question what we know about ourselves."

But what if we were meant to find it? And what happens when this vast, global puzzle is complete...?

"About everything."

'Bursts at the seams with big ideas. A sheer blast from start to finish. I haven't had this much fun reading in ages' Blake Crouch, author of the Wayward Pines trilogy

'A stellar debut which masterfully blends sci-fi, political thriller and apocalyptic fiction. So much more than the sum of its parts - a page-turner of the highest order' Kirkus Reviews

'Reminiscent of The Martian and World War Z, this is a luminous conspiracy yarn that shoots for (and lands among) the stars' Pierce Brown, author of Red Rising

As high-concept as it is, Sleeping Giants is a thriller through and through. . . . One of the most promising series kickoffs in recent memory NPR

Sylvain Neuvel has a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Chicago. He is an amateur robotics enthusiast and life-long fan of all things science fiction.
Sleeping Giants is the first in the Themis Files series, followed by

Buchhändler-Empfehlungen

Fazit: Sooooooo spannend und genial! *_*

Geraldine Chantal Daphne Dettwiler, Buchhandlung Basel

Inhalt Die kleine Rose fiel in ein Erdloch und fand eine riesige metallene Hand. 17 Jahre wurde immer noch nicht geklärt woher die Hand kam, wer sie gebaut hat und was sie zu bedeuten hat. Rose, mittlerweile eine angesehene Forscherin, leitet die geheime Forschung an der Hand und schon bald stossen sie und ihre Kollegen auf weitere riesen Teile! Schreibstil Wie auch schon bei lluminae, ist dieses Buch nur in Aufzeichnungen und Dokumentationen zusammengefasst. 90% davon sind Gespräche mit einem namentlich Unbekannten Typen, der die Fäden in den Händen hält und der mein persönlicher Favorit war. Zwischendurch gab es viele Fachbegriffe die das lesen ein bisschen erschwert haben, aber durch die einfache Darstellung (Gespräche/direkte Rede) kam man sehr gut und schnell voran. Persönliche Meinung Man war das geil! Ich wusste gar nichts von dem Buch, hatte es nur gekauft, weil meine Freundinnen es lesen wollte und ich wurde soo positiv davon überrascht! «Mr. Couture is not an American citizen. He is from Montreal. It is a large city, about the size of Boston, in that very large country just north of here. You may have heard of it. They play hockey. —» Erstens LIEBE ich diese Art der Erzählform! Keine unnötigen Beschreibungen, einfach nur direkte Rede. Ich liebe Dialoge. Zweitens: Die Geschichte war sooo spannend! Wow! Jeder der fünf Abschnitte war einfach nur super und ich konnte das Buch kaum aus der Hand legen. Es war witzig, spannend, schockierend, nervenaufreibend, sarkastisch und brutal. «People who owe me favors are called friends.» Was ein bisschen fehlte, war das Zwischenmenschliche. Die Gefühle für Personen sind nicht so gut zu greifen fand ich. Das liegt aber eben an dieser Erzählform. Dafür musste ich so oft lachen, wegen dem Sarkasmus, dem Humor und der Sticheleien der Charaktere! Besonders angetan hat es mir unser unbekannter Gesprächspartner! «“Perhaps, deep down inside that rugged shell of yours, there is a little girl desperately waiting for her Prince Charming to propose." "Of course there is. Only until now, I'd been pretty successful at keeping that little brat's mouth shut.”» Für Fans von Illuminae, Red Rising und Pacific Rim/Neon Genesis Evangelion Fazit: Sooooooo spannend und genial! *_*

worth a read

Such an interesting approach to the whole Sci-Fi alien trope. Also the execution of the story in interview style is really untypical. Can only recommend reading the whole series!

Brilliant

4.5/5 This was really something else! I wasn't convinced by the interview narrative so I listened to the audiobook and I loved it! It's brilliantly told and the story is really really interesting!! There are quite a few unanswered questions that I cannot wait to get to in the rest of the series

Amazing Sci-Fi, highly recommendable!

Dr. Rose Franklin, years after the haunting discovery of an inexplicable, giant hand in her childhood, seeks to solve the riddle attached to it. As the lead scientist appointed to a dedicated team tasked to investigate the metal artefact, she soon discovers that there have to be many more parts. But what purpose does it serve? Who are the ingenious creators? More than 5000 years old, human involvement seems impossible… With the first part of the Themis-Files trilogy Sylvain Neuvel creates a fascinating, complex and entertaining novel. Written in a unique style, by telling the story through interviews, communications and news reports, Sci-Fi fans with a soft spot for somewhat realistic storytelling will have an excellent time following the team’s discovery that we’re not alone on this planet.
