Throwback Thursday #47 - Deep Fathom

This is a great feature that Melissa at My words and pictures has been doing for a while and I wanted to jump on board! There are plenty of books out there I desperately want...
But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on my shelves?

Deep Fathom - James Rollins
Ex-Navy SEAL Jack Kirkland surfaces from an aborted underwater salvage mission to find the Earth burning. Solar flares have triggered a series of gargantuan natural disasters. Earthquakes and hellfire rock the globe. Air Force One has vanished from the skies with America's president on board. Now, with the U.S. on the narrow brink of a nuclear apocalypse, Kirkland must pilot his oceangoing exploration ship, "Deep Fathom," on a desperate mission miles below the ocean's surface. There devastating secrets await him--and a power an ancient civilization could not contain has been cast out into modern day. And it will forever alter a world that's already racing toward its own destruction.

I love a bit of action adventure - it's one of my favourite type of films and occasionally I like a book that is the action flick equivalent. I bought this book at the airport a long time ago and have not read yet. However, I'm feeling like a change of pace in my current reading habits so hopefully I will pick this up soon!

Does anyone else like to read a movie-style book occasionally? Which book? :)


  1. I'd rather just watch the movie ;)

  2. Oh I like thrillers. I so enjoy thriller films too! Great choice!

  3. Oh this sounds like a great adventure! Hope you get to it some time. ;D
