Waiting On Wednesday #134 - Sleeping Giants

Waiting On Wednesday, where we put the spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating, is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

This week's choice is -

Sleeping Giants (Themis Files #1) - Sylvain Neuvel 
ISBN - 9781101886694
Publisher - Del Rey
Release date - April 26 2016

World War Z meets The Martian. This inventive first novel will please devoted fans of sci-fi as well as literary readers hoping a smart thriller will sneak up on them.

17 years ago: A girl in South Dakota falls through the earth, then wakes up dozens of feet below ground on the palm of what seems to be a giant metal hand. Today: She is a top-level physicist leading a team of people to understand exactly what that hand is, where it came from, and what it portends for humanity. A swift and spellbinding tale told almost exclusively through transcriptions of interviews conducted by a mysterious and unnamed character, this is a unique debut that describes a hunt for truth, power, and giant body parts.

I love the sound of this! Falling through the earth only to land on a giant hand? Definitely want to know more about that...


  1. This is definitely a different sounding book. I like the plot for it. Great choice.

  2. I'm really excited about this too! Hopefully you requested it on NetGallery (I think)?? It just sounds odd and wonderful at the same time:-)

    1. I did request it on Netgalley, when it first went up and got approved yesterday! Can't wait to start it :)

  3. This definitely sounds different and i'm intrigued to learn more about it. I'm not 100% sure how i feel about the story being told through interviews but i'll be watching out for this one now. :)
