Book Description
On a desolate island off the southern coast of Chile, an incredible discovery is made: a gigantic meteorite, the largest ever found, entombed in the earth for millions of years. Half a world away, billionaire entrepreneur Palmer Lloyd decides he must have it as the centerpiece of his grandiose new museum. He is willing to pay any price-in dollars and in lives. Getting it back to New York poses a particular challenge: It will be the heaviest object ever moved by humankind...
Fueled by Lloyd's money, an audacious expedition takes shape. Disguising a state-of-the-art ship as a rusted freighter, the expedition secretly heads southward with a fail-safe plan to steal the meteorite from Chile. Leading the group is an inscrutable engineer hired by Lloyd, and a world-famous meteorite hunter whose career was shattered by a controversial theory.
Soon, along the icy rim of Antarctica, in the grip of a frozen hell, the adventurers are confronted with a terrifying enigma about the origin-and nature-of the meteorite. It is a mystery they must solve-if they are to escape with their very lives.
Combining mesmerizing science, unbearable suspense, and great storytelling, Preston and Child once again produce a first-rate thriller that will have readers turning pages as fast they can, toward a shocking conclusion as powerful as the impact of a falling meteorite.

Finally, I finished the book. I liked it very much. The last 200 pages, I couldn't stop reading, it was so exciting. And the ending of the story was surprising and unexpected for me. Very good!

I already asked mariannedeliz for her address, but have no answer yet.

Sent to jessicaloveyou on December, 2nd.

this book is good but not fantastic.this does not match up to the other books by douglas preston and lincoln child.brimstone is so much better.this book does introduce you to a lot of amazing collector's items but the book is really slow moving.this spoils the whole book.

After a long travel, here it is on my hands.

Thank you!!!

P.S.: Since I’m a lit bit busy at the time it’ll, probably, take me more than a moth to read it...

This was my first book from these authors and quite a good one I must say.
With a totally unexpected end this book is a great “hard to put down” page turner.
The possibility to read authors that in no other way I was going to pick up in a book store is one of the main reasons to be part of the Bookcrossing worldwide family, thank you for sharing!

I’ll try to meet up with lisatam asap, she also has some books for me.

2006/05/02 - waiting for lisatam's reply.

Journal Entry 13 by lisatam from Lisboa - City, Lisboa (cidade) Portugal on Wednesday, May 31, 2006
Great story, hard to put down before the end! Opens the "appetite" to read other books from these authors.

Thank you again for sharing.

Book is on its way to Finland, to Margih.

Journal Entry 14 by Margih from Tampere, Pirkanmaa / Birkaland Finland on Thursday, June 08, 2006
Ice Limit is here, thanks lisatam and CrazyTabasco :) This book looks really an interesting one but I must put it to the TBR pile as there are some ring books and promised-to-another-BXer -books to read first. If there come more participants to this ray, pls, let me know, so I will hurry with the reading. Anyway, the book will find new readers after me.
