“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.”

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peggy Crawford | 2/16/2014

    " Not my favorite Rollins. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 2/11/2014

    " An interesting story with thoughtful possibilities "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brad | 2/10/2014

    " Read a third and didn't like it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 2/7/2014

    " This book was ok, but I didn't find it as good as his other books. I kept reading mostly because I wanted to see how the child got out of this story. I think I will stay with Rollins' non-monster books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha | 1/29/2014

    " Wow. If you're in the mood for a thriller that will keep you up all night (to finish it), make you forget about dinner and make you jump at loud noises then you should read this book. I was surprised at how much I loved it but once I picked it up I couldn't put it down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/26/2014

    " I've been looking for a new author to start reading who does not ghost write (any suggestions?) and kind of made a mistake with this one. I was unimpressed with the way that the story dragged on. It was predictable and I could only read one or two pages before my eyelids began to get very heavy. The only way that I would recommend it is if you are truly trying to fall asleep but can't do it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 1/24/2014

    " I forgot I read this book on someone's recommendation about a year ago- it was a good adventure/thriller/fantasy with scientific underpinnings. A good combination. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erik | 1/20/2014

    " Typical mind releasing escapism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 1/5/2014

    " Fun combination of Journey to the Center of the Earth and a modern thriller, set at the Antarctic Station. Lots of twists and turns, plus a bit of a love story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy Brown | 12/17/2013

    " First book as James Rollins (aka James Clemens) and my favorite mostly because I'm fascinated by caves. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lillian | 12/10/2013

    " usual good James Rollins adventure story with lots of action and twists, and a nod to natural selection theories taken to new levels. The caving parts made me a little claustrophobic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen Duff | 9/26/2013

    " So far this is my favourite of his stand alone books. Mixture of The Lost Continent and The Land That Time Forgot. Weird creatures and lost civilizations, excellent I couldn't put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Louisa | 9/20/2013

    " This was a great debut (as James Rollins) novel! I loved it, the science, and it was just awesome! And there's a very really chance that there could be life down there! Just incredible! I loved it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy Poyner | 7/8/2013

    " Very formulaic. Well written, though. I prefer the later novels of Rollins much more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa/Bluestem Cafeohlai | 11/12/2012

    " Rollins has great adventure-driven ideas but really I'm not sure he's so fond of the human race. (That's OK; I personally don't like centipedes.) When you read his many books, you'll find that there's a glaring formula feel to them but he always surprises you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 9/15/2012

    " A groupo of scientists and soldiers travel into the depths of Antartica to search for a prior team which has been lost. What they find is interesting, but something which I do not believe could happen. But it was a good story with lost of thrills. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tory Wagner | 9/13/2012

    " Good fun - anthropology, spelunking and evolutionary biology! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Niteowl4ever | 9/9/2012

    " It took me awhile to get into this book, but once I did I was hooked. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Garygriffin | 8/20/2012

    " It was good reading but a 'little too far-fetched' for me with the various underworld creatures. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brendan | 6/28/2012

    " James Rollins has quickly become my favorite author. Even though the story line was mostly predictable and kind of cliche, it is non-stop action from start to finish so it is still a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jana | 2/18/2012

    " Good escape literature. Pretty far fetched though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianne | 11/26/2011

    " I like these books for listening to while driving to a far away destination, they are definately a guilty pleasure, a box of sugary donuts, a case of twinkies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julian | 11/2/2011

    " Another good read, takes place underground and has some creepy reptiles in the story but a page turner for sure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Randy | 5/8/2011

    " written well, it does goes way out there. A little to sci-fi for a thriller "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nana | 4/11/2011

    " A group of researchers are sent to a subterranean base for not only research, but to find the previous group who disappeared a few months ago. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julian | 3/28/2011

    " Another good read, takes place underground and has some creepy reptiles in the story but a page turner for sure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clifford | 3/10/2011

    " I bought this when it was first published and devoured it in a day or so. For the first thriller novel Rollins' wrote, it holds up very well. That first book made me a life-long fan of his work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Niteowl4ever | 3/8/2011

    " It took me awhile to get into this book, but once I did I was hooked. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 3/5/2011

    " it was alright i guess. ive read better from him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 2/28/2011

    " I don't know. It may be that I have read too many of Rollins works that almost seem real, but this one is a bit off for me. Not that bad a story, but it is stretching the willingness to believe a bit too far. Still, not hard to keep reading and the whole think wraps up nicely. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lauren | 1/28/2011

    " Not my favourite Rollins book. Just too much fantasy for my taste. I did finish it to see what happened but it's not one I would recommend . I much prefer his Sigma Force series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laureen | 1/23/2011

    " I love his books - so full of non-stop action and adventure. This was similar to his book Amazonia which is my favorite of all of his books (that I have read so far). It takes place under a volcano in Antarctica - I won't say anymore, but this was a great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jana | 1/16/2011

    " Good escape literature. Pretty far fetched though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 1/12/2011

    " Fascinating story! It certainly makes one wonder if this could be possible! Stayed on the edge of my seat during the whole time I was reading! Creatures abound in this one! Could there really be a whole different world below the Ice? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 1/6/2011

    " I think of all the books by James Rollins, this is my favorite. "
