“James Rollins knows adventure.”
—Chicago Sun Times
Subterranean is the novel that launched the spectacular career of James Rollins, author of the mach-speed, New York Times bestselling blockbusters Map of Bones, Black Order, The Judas Strain, The Doomsday Key, and so many others. Rollins fans—and aficionados of his contemporaries, Clive Cussler and Dan Brown—can return to the beginning with this breathtaking tale of exploration and dark secrets hidden beneath the Antarctic ice, and see why the Providence Journal-Bulletin has named Rollins, “The modern master of the action thriller.”

One of the best books I've ever read along with Amozonia by James Rollins
awful book, terrible reading
I really hate to leave a bad review, but save yourself some irritation and do not buy this book. Not only is the book bad, but the reading is mind numbing. The reader's differing voices are laughable. He does women ok, but the voices he uses for the military men are just horrible.
The characters were thin and horribly developed. There were several individuals ( while running for their life, mind you ) that could not keep their minds of sex, are you kidding me? This is just stupid.
The plot is dumb, think an extremely boring version of Jurassic Park.
James Rollins is a good writer, his SIGMA novels are very compelling. Not sure what happened with this book, but it was awful.
Poor research, poor reading
The lack of plausible accuracy to bring the reader into an implausible, albeit entertaining, comic book fiction are very distracting (i.e., since when do Navy SEALs, or any other member of the Navy, hold the rank of "major"? Answer: it's lieutenant commander).
On the audio side of this book, it's poorly recorded to the point of being unlistenable.
