Book Description

DESCRIPTION:
Deep in the Amazon jungle, a mysterious virus threatens all of humanity. When an ex-Army Ranger and a beautiful anthropologist team-up to find a cure, science and faith collide in an epic struggle for survival.

SYNOPSIS:
Anthropologist Alex Forsythe spent three years studying a remote tribe in the Amazon jungle when they mysteriously vanished without a trace. Months later, a teenage girl from the tribe turns up babbling about a horrifying place her people had been taken. The girl’s body is ravaged by a strange malady, and blood tests reveal an unknown, lethal pathogen. Alex realizes she must find the source of the outbreak if there is to be any hope of a cure.

Nearby, former Army Ranger Peter Zachary leads a small team into the jungle to film a reality show created to explore and explain paranormal phenomena. When Alex and Peter’s paths cross and they join forces, they face the most dangerous adversary they’ve ever encountered—and a technology that threatens the future of humanity. Faith and science collide as Peter and Alex discover the dark secret at the heart of The Eden Project.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!! April 21, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a great read and I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone interested in reading some exciting adventure that literally moves from one action scene to another. The conversations are believable and the storyline pulls the reader in quickly. The author does an excellent job of ushering you right into the story. The whole idea of someone wanting to create more perfect humans isn't new but the way Mr. Bolin goes about doing it is very creative, fun, and entertaining. I started this book on a Sunday and finished it up Tuesday! An excellent read at an excellent price!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Eden Project July 25, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I went into this book after reading The Passage and then Nightmare so I am afraid my expectations were very high.
This book was an "ok" book. I was disappointed because I was expecting more out of it than it delivered. The premise of the story was a good one, it was set in the Amazon which added to the drama but it just did not deliver for me.
I enjoyed it until about half way through and then it just bogged down to me and the ending was so quick, it felt chopped. I knew from the beginning that it was faith based, and that was not a problem for me, but a lot seemed very high tech science fiction and some just unbelievable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great adventure--thrilling and suspenseful read! May 26, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great book, well written and flows nicely with twists and turns to keep you guessing. Bolin is a strong writer, as evidenced by the vivid description and creative story-line. I highly recommend this book to anybody reading the Clive Cussler, Robert Ludlum, or Dan Brown. I was really impressed and will definitely pick up the next Peter Zachary novel. Well-written and recommended by this reader!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very, Very Disappointing Read May 7, 2011
By Dog513
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow. . . Where does one start. I suppose that I am a glutton for punishment in that I read this thing through to the end.... Hoping and hoping that somehow the author would come up with some brilliant ending that would make muddling through this work somehow worthwhile . . . Nope...
Mr. Bolin had the potential recipe for coming up with a story that had some serious interest and juice. The Genome project, debunking jungle legends, the Amazon, Elite military guys, etc. Good stuff, right? Instead Bolin spends hundreds of pages on meandering through a "B Movie" plot with hackneyed, undeveloped characters, undeveloped relationships between the characters, and impossibly unbelievable danger situations and even more improbable escapes from rapid-fire weaponry, guns to the face, fire, drowning, mechanical pirahna-like creatures . . . enough escapes from certain death to put Bugs Bunny and the Roadrunner to shame.... and just as ridiculous.

As for the characters . . . I really WANTED to like the main characters but the overused conventions and stereotypes (along with one of the main character's longings for the ultra-fine delicacies of her local "Chili's" restaurant while in the middle of their Amazon quest to save a lost tribe of indian) that the author used killed any chance for that. There was the completely overly predictable budding romance between the strong female lead (with the interchangeable male/female name - Alex), and the male lead (Peter), which was SO predictable that it was annoying.

The evil mastermind of the bad guy plot ... (with unexplained resources and finances to mastermind a global plot with an army with ridiculously expensive equipment and facilities to enforce his evil doings which would have cost in the tens of billions....

1.0 out of 5 stars Good start, painful finish December 17, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story started out strong - good story line & well written. Then...well, I'm not sure what happened. All of the sudden we have a little girl that demonstrates telekenetic abilities out of the blue with one heck of a mean streak (both of which make a single appearance). We have nanotech that's named after an obscure Chinese myth and holes in the plot so large an airbus could fly through with room to spare. The ending seemed far too rushed and didn't fit the rest of the book. There is far too much left unresolved and the typical love interest aspect of the plot was unbelievable since the two characters hardly said a kind word to each other and the internal dialogue didn't support that deep of an emotional connection.

The characters were barely fleshed out and the apparent deep connections they shared had little explanation. Little character development though the last few pages seem to hint at some type of spiritual growth on the part of the hero there is so little development towards that end goal that that whole piece of the story ilseems totally out of place.

I'm so glad I purchased this book while it was on sale for 2.00 - paying anymore for this would be highway robbery.

1.0 out of 5 stars positively horrid June 24, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
this author ruined a perfectly good plot with an unconnected subplot of spirituality, and a lack of research. An author should know enough about character job descriptions to have a basic understanding of do's and don'ts. An army ranger would not step into an unsearched room, light up a ciggy, and turn on all the lights. Simple details such as that detract from an interesting plot, which fell short because of a subplot of an exploration into spirituality that was haphazard at best. Pitiful story telling that never should have been published.

4.0 out of 5 stars a James-Bond-in-the-Amazon type thing!
With some nice character development and a storyline somewhere between Jurassic Park and the Shining, I was glad the author did not go too far in either of those directions.
