This book was not my favorite of their works. The exploration of the arctic and the assembly of the documentary crew, the scientists, the military and the Tunit shaman made for an interesting cast of characters. I read this book more quickly than many other thrilers that I read and this is a huge gauge for me as to how much I enjoy a book. As much...more

It is well written with a lot of details that make you feel the confusion and terror experienced by everyone in the novel.
There is science fiction which is totally unbelievable, but there is also science fiction based on expe...more
Imagine John Carpenters 'The Thing' told in the format of 'Relic.' A creature feature for the mind, complete with plenty of blood, guts, and splattering. Toss in just enough science and a modern-day issue (global warming) to keep it relevant, intertwine an anc...more

The setup is similar to Child's previous novel, Deep Storm in that the characters is stuck in their hostile situation, unable to escape to civilization for what seem like contrived reasons. However once the setting is established, this contrivance i...more
Позачудих се защо оригиналното заглавие на романа "Terminal Freeze" е преведено по такъв начин, но накрая махнах с ръка, свих рамене и се зачетох. Признавам, за пръв път подхващам книга на Линкълн Чайлд, досега ми бе известен само като име, което тво...more
A couple days ago I finally was in the mood to give this book a try. I'm a big fan of the Pendergast series that Lincoln Child co-authors with Douglas Preston and I've been curious to see how his standalone novels that he writes alone would turn out to be and I knew when I read the summary of this one that it would be a good place to start.
Terminal Freeze turned out to be a very quick read which I wasn't expecting at all. I was expecting it to be written at the same pace as the ab...more
What I liked most about it was the atmosphere Lincoln Child created. There were some pretty predictable elements in the story but it didn't matter because it was so thrilling and the story kept me reading one.
A great pageturner!!

Die Geschichte spielt in einer abgelegenen Militärbasis, in der ein Forschungste...more

In Child's last book it was the deep of the ocean, in Terminal Freeze it's nearly at the roof of the earth.
A team of scientists funded by a media conglomerate who wants to shoot a documentary are researching the effects of global warming in the frozen tundra that is Mount Fear. They find what they think is a fantastic prehistoric discovery. And then bodies start to pile up!
That more or less summarizes Terminal...more
Lincoln seemed to have acquired an interest in writing as early as second grade, when he wrote a short story entitled Bumble the Elephant (now believed by scholars to be lost). Along with two dozen shor...more
