Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I liked this so much more than I thought I would. I borrowed the audiobook from my library and it needed to be returned tomorrow so I kind of just jumped into it with out knowing too much about it. And when I realized that it was told in interviews and journal logs I was extremely skeptical. But after awhile I was so engrossed in what was happening that I barely noticed it. I actually really loved how the story was told. I am 100% completely in love with it actually.
And the story itself is something that I have never read before.. anything involving the military and the US government is something I usually would not reach for... But again once I got a little bit into the story I hardly noticed. I was just so freaking into the characters and so into what they were doing. The one thing that did bother me was Kara.. I liked her until she weirdly started dating a co worker and then randomly started sleeping with another.. I just didn't understand why that needed to be added. And trust me when I say that I only read romance books so me saying that I wish that they didn't ass the stupid romance is saying something. It just made me hate her. I don't get what was wrong with Ryan.. I don't get why she randomly jumped ship to another guy. It was weird and awkward and I just hated it. It's the only reason I took off the half a star.
This is by far the best book I've read so far this year. I am super excited for the next book.. I have the audiobook on hold now! Oh BTW the narrators were phenomenal. The audio book was like listening to a movie.
