My Rating: 5/5
In a way, I am glad that I did not pick Sleeping Giants up until now as the complete trilogy is available to read! I do, wish, however, that I had read it earlier purely because of how brilliant it is.
Written in an epistolary format, Sleeping Giants gives a surprising depth to the main characters. They felt real, even through the pages of interviews and reports.
The odd personal log helped with that, but there are very few of them (that’s not a criticism). Some of the main characters in Sleeping Giants felt like tropes but then became real people very quickly.
They all have motivations, desires, and will do anything to accomplish their goals – when all of the characters in a book have this, it makes for an incredible novel.
