Udover mit abonnement på Mofibo.com har jeg også et Kindle Unlimited-abonnement hos Amazon. Jeg er ikke altid lige god til at bruge det, så udover alle de andre ting, jeg gerne vil i 2016, så skal jeg også lige have brugt mit abonnement en masse ;o) Altid godt med ambitioner..

Anyway, så faldt jeg i min iver for at finde noget nyt at læse/høre over denne bog som fik meget rosende omtale, så den har jeg brugt virkelig meget tid på – mindst dobbelt op på de 15 timer og et eller andet, som den er sat til at vare, fordi jeg hele tiden mister tråden, falder i søvn, læser noget andet osv. osv. og må spole tilbage. Det hjalp så heller ikke på sagen, at den er lige lovlig meget sci-fi for min smag, så det kneb lidt med at finde gejsten til at høre den. Så vildt begejstret kan man ikke påstå, at jeg er.. Men måske jeg bliver nødt til at høre del 2 også, for jeg vil jo gerne have en happy ending ;o)

“Kort” om bogen (fra amazon.com):
For months, the research vessel Icefall has followed a giant iceberg that recently calved from the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. When the researchers spot a mysterious structure peeking out from the crumbling ice, they dock and disembark to investigate. What they find, they never could have imagined: a labyrinth older than humanity itself and an artifact from the 20th Century that was lost–but not forgotten. The discovery sets off a chain of events thousands of years in the making.

Dr. Kate Warner has spent most of her adult life running from her past. She has also spent it searching for a cure for a medical condition she believes is an emerging global epidemic: autism. In a lab in Jakarta, Indonesia, she believes she has finally found that cure. But at the moment of her breakthrough, her world is once again shattered. Her lab is attacked, her staff assaulted, and two children in her care are abducted. The mysterious intruders leave Dr. Warner unconscious. When she awakens, she’s a murder suspect in police custody. She soon learns that her research has greater implications than she ever dreamed, and that her past is not what she’s been told. Her work holds the key to humanity’s future–for better or worse.

With time running out, Kate decides to risk everything to unravel the mystery her research has uncovered: the Atlantis Gene. Her journey takes her around the globe and deep inside a far-reaching conspiracy. The revelations that unfold will rewrite the history of human origins–and if her adversaries capture her, the future of human evolution.
