“Gripping…a first-rate nail biter.”

 —Tampa Tribune

 

James Rollins—the author of The Doomsday Key, The Last Oracle, The Judas Strain, Black Order, and other pulse-pounding, New York Times bestsellers—carries readers into the heart of darkness in his classic thriller, Amazonia. Lincoln Child, New York Times bestselling co-author (with Douglas Preston) of Cemetery Dance and other Agent Pendergast thrillers, raves, “Amazonia grabs you by the throat and refuses to let go until the very last page is turned.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 1/31/2014

    " A good read, though I was a little disappointed at the predictability of some of the characters. I was only about a quarter of the way through before I could tell how each character would turn out: who would live, who would end up together, who was the mole. However, this was the only disappointment, because it kept the medical side of me guessing as to what the solution (and cause) of the "plague" that was the basis of the book would be. Would definitely recommend it if you enjoy suspense and action. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan Chance | 1/28/2014

    " Fantasy so thick, it actually helps protect you from the fear the author serves up large helpings of in almost every chapter, because you can keep telling yourself, "It's not real. It's not real." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arlene | 1/16/2014

    " Indiana Jones adventure - lost tribe, jungle, strange creatures, mother tree, suspend reality before reading, but it was entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mason | 1/8/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. It has a very unique plot and lots of action. I have enjoyed all of his books so far and this one didn't disappoint. If you like Clive Cussler, Steve Berry, or Jeremy Robinson then you will like James Rollins. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Eppenstein | 12/29/2013

    " An early Rollins book that may not be for everybody. Rollins does, occasionally, resort to what I consider sci-fi plots and this is one of those efforts. It's a good thriller but if you're expecting something of the caliber of his Sigma you will be disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Lloyd | 12/23/2013

    " Great action adventure. Page burner. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda Saleh | 12/13/2013

    " This is the first book of James Rollins that I've bought.. And I think I've already read it more than 5 times.. still love it... the thrill, was shaking my bones "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn Simons | 12/11/2013

    " Action & adventure - in true James Rollins fashion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Strott1 | 12/11/2013

    " I liked it enough to read it twice, (a few years apart) just wish it would have been longer with more detail. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy Crawford | 12/8/2013

    " One of my first experiences with Rollins. Must have been good...still reading everything he writes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janey | 11/10/2013

    " Another brilliant book by James Rollins!! I loved the action and adventure and never knowing what was going to happen next to the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 9/25/2013

    " My first James Rollins book. Thanks to Michael Atkinson for suggesting this author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Insomniac | 8/27/2013

    " I am officially a fan of Rollins! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott | 8/13/2013

    " One of my favorite James Rollins science adventures. Set in the heart of the Amazonian rain forest, there's plenty of action, strange creatures, unforgettable creepiness and a host of great characters to keep any adventure buff engrossed from start to finish. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 7/17/2013

    " Rollins has good imagination, but a bit too graphic for me in places describing the monsters and killing people. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kendra | 6/4/2013

    " Quickie read, play on the Tree of Life. I tend to enjoy these individual books by the author more then the Sigma Force series, though all are good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 4/19/2013

    " This is exactly the type of book I like. Scientific facts,- fiction based on facts. Exciting. The ending may have been a little cheesy, but I certainly didnt expect so many characters to be gone by the end... Good book all over "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathan | 2/12/2013

    " Pure trash but still very entertaining. Would have been a good airplane book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 2/10/2013

    " Action, history, medicinal discussions "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 A.R. Voss | 3/10/2012

    " this author does not disappoint. Interesting concept, very good adventure, and I loved the concluding discovery. Very creative, very well researched and fantastic story telling. Indiana Jones, meets Bear Grylls, meets Dr. Moreau. I purchased a few books by the author which I'm very excited to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Duff | 6/16/2011

    " Not my favourite James Rollins, I prefer his Sigma series to his stand alones but it was okay although more a two and a half star read than a three star. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cassi | 4/18/2011

    " Great book. My favorite in the series. This book really got me hooked on James Rollins for a while "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yona | 4/15/2011

    " One really good book. Soon I'll read the rest of the Sigma Force Series.
    James Rollins became one of my favorite authors. This is the third book, that i`ve read from him, and I wansn't disapointed.
    Read it!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 4/14/2011

    " Not a fan so much of Painter being in on the action (I started reading the series with The Judas Strain), but it still wasn't bad. Would have liked to have known more of Safia's history, I really liked her as a character, but it's okay. Definitely a good start to the series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 4/11/2011

    " A good book for night reading. Entertaining and action packed. Nothing revolutionary, but it presented some interesting historical possibilities. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fiera78 | 3/27/2011

    " FAntastic book like usually. But I prefer the later books where is more of history. This is I think much more action and science than history. :D "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jamaica | 2/12/2011

    " I listened to the abridged version of this on cd - not reccommended. The leaps that Rollins takes in the narrative which are pretty fantastical as it is, became even more disjointed when edited down. Plus, not enough character development so didn't really enjoy it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 1/12/2011

    " Not only are each of these books facinating but I always learn so much from each one of them! Never dissapointing! I would give them 5 stars but I rarely do that so they all stay 4 stars:0 Perhaps I should rethink that though. "
