The Anomaly

Not all secrets are meant to be found. If Indiana Jones lived in the X-Files era, he might bear at least a passing resemblance to Nolan Moore -- a rogue archaeologist hosting a documentary series derisively dismissed by the "real" experts, but beloved of conspiracy theorists. Nolan sets out to retrace the steps of an explorer from 1909 who claimed to have discovered a myster Not all secrets are meant to be found.

    Michael here's the thing. You're about to become absurdly famous. People are going to be badgering you to be on their talk shows. Saturday Night Live will do a spoof on you. David Letterman will come out of retirement just to do a top ten list with you on it. There will be fan fiction....

    I knew I needed to read this book when the blurb stated that the main characters would be like a modern version of Indiana Jones in an X-Files era. I LOVE Indiana Jones! Nolan Moore is a YoutTube celebrity, hosting his own web show where he's trying to find if the truth is out there...

    The Anomaly is just the kind of James Rollins novel I love - an action-packed tale full of quippy characters in exotic locales that takes two facts and turns them into something that skirts the edges of both science fiction and horror. Except Anomaly isn't Rollins, it's Rutger - a pseu...

    This book was so crazy! And Good! And ridiculous! And I just loved it! I really enjoyed the writing - great voice for the main character, Nolan - loved his sarcasm, his wit, and dryness to the narration. Great supporting cast of characters as well. This is like...sci-fi/horror/suspe...

    Nolan Moore leads a team of four TV web series production crew members in an effort to retrace the path of an explorer from 1909 who made an important but mysterious discovery of a cave high up in the rock strata of the Grand Canyon. Nolan?s crew hopes to ramp up their reputation of ...

    The Anomaly, which begins with a spine-tingling prologue and for which film rights have already been acquired, strongly resembles an Indiana Jones script. The author, mindful of this, even mentions Indiana Jones at one point. As much as I liked the Indiana Jones movies, I was rolling m...

    Argh. This book could have been 5 stars. The first two parts of the book, holy hell...amazing. It builds you up with humor and leads you into scary, in a way of the unknown. I had to stop reading it at night because it was just creepy. I loved the first half of this book..and then...Me...

    As has been said, there is something of the Indiana Jones about this magnificent thriller. It delivers on every level from start to finish and is extremely well-written and brilliantly imagined. Caves and I are done with each other..... if I should see one again, I'm walking the other ...

    Sometimes my son watches a TV programme where a group of, very strange, men, wander the backwoods of America looking for, and yet, never finding, strange creatures. This novel is cleverly based around a similar show ? The Anomaly Files ? a low budget, online show, with a similar th...

    I won this book on the goodreads giveaway. I would, actually, give this book 3.5 stars. At first, I thought this book was hokum. It had every Indiana Jones movie, every Destination Truth and Expedition Unknown episode reference or recreation imaginable. Even the author was making fu...

    This review can also be found here! 4.5/5 TW: mentions of cheating and slight gore I read this book in one day. Nearly in one sitting, actually. We had workers all around the house to do stuff with our A/C (we had to get a new one and this was the final step of making it th...

    I have to agree that I was completely hooked on the promise of fight and adventure! I still believe that this story could have been delivered so much better, and not just in terms of how it was told, but the story and its details itself. Tell anyone this premise and they'll tell you "t...

    Good Lord this was brilliant. Creepy as all heck, a brilliant main protagonist, a hugely engaging wider cast and a horrifically addictive plot. I finished it late last night, bleary eyed, hugely satisfied with the entire read including the heart stopping finale. Also loved that the exp...

    Uhg, I'm absolutely torn here, so ultimately going with a solid 3 stars. First and foremost, I could not and did not put this down. I finished it all in one sitting and don't regret that at all. The first 3/4ths or maybe even 4/5ths of this book are completely spell binding. I w...

    If you're looking for a fast-paced Indiana Jones/Dan Brown kind of adventure, this is it! A conspiracy theory YouTuber and his crew discover something real and dangerous while filming for an episode. I loved the overall plot. It was creepy, exciting, edge-of-my-seat material, but s...

    This is one of the best science fiction thrillers i?ve read in AGES. If you like Mathew Reilly or James Rollins, this is very much for you. Opening with a horror movie/Indiana Jones moment that sets the scene with terrifying screams in the dark, it then switches to a more chatty...

    Oh. Dear. Lord. I could NOT wait for this one to end. Many, many, many times I thought about calling it quits but I read so many reviews saying how ?horrifying? and ?scary? it was so I kept pushing through waiting...hoping for something scary?even remotely good to happen. It ...

    I'm going to disagree slightly with the blurb, and say I think it's a little more the National Treasure gang mashing up with X-Files. Our protagonist Nolan does pointedly mention not being an archaeologist a couple of times, after all, making him a little less Indy-like. This was a qui...

    The premise of this book sounded just like something I'd like. The setup with the expedition from a previous group for the smithsonia was really well thought out, the more modern day tv group ( didnt remind me of Indiana Jones more National Treasure) set off to explore these caves. Mys...

    What a belter of a book. Chillingly entertaining and a thundering good read. Allow me to offer five reasons why this plucky amateurs? quest into the unknown kept me glued to my seat: ? Its sheer originality. ? Re-invents why you should be afraid of the dark. ? Genius co...
