Sleeping Giants

Sleeping Giants
By Sylvain Neuvel

sleeping-giantsThe idea that Earth was visited in ancient days by aliens who somehow seeded or laid the groundwork for human civilization is, literally, dug up again in Sleeping Giants as bits and pieces of a colossal, three-thousand-year-old mechanical figure are discovered buried all over the world.

After gathering and reassembling the limbs of this titan it’s still not clear what its origin or purpose is, though an extra-governmental team, including a resourceful French-Canadian linguist, is soon hard at work trying to unlock its secrets.

Sylvain Neuvel – who is, perhaps not coincidentally, also a French-Canadian linguist – kicks this new series off with a bang, adopting an oral-history style of presentation that gives the action directness and immediacy as the giant awakes.
