Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel is book one in the trilogy of the Themis Files. On Rose’s eleventh birthday she rides her bike into the woods only to fall into a large hole and land in a large metal hand. Later, body parts are discovered throughout the world. After assembling them all, a team scrambles to figure out what the giant is, where it came from, and what its purpose is. The premise is interesting, though overall it’s not a great novel. The characters are flat and the format doesn’t serve the story well – it’s written in a collection of interviews, correspondence, bulletins, etc. I probably won’t bother reading the rest of the trilogy.
