I had a blast reading “Sleeping Giants” by Sylvian Neuvel. Reviewers say it’s “The Martian” meets “World War Z,” but I’ve only seen the movies and haven’t read the books, so I can’t really agree one way or the other.
What I do agree with is how the story was told through a series of news articles, interview transcripts, and journal entries. It transformed what could have been massive chunks of info dump into bite sized portions of entertaining narrative.
The premise is great too! A secret group searching around the world for parts of a massive robot. Scientists. The military. Government conspiracies. Robots and aliens? That’s popcorn magic right there!
