eBook Review: The Dig

In keeping with my attempts to read and review a kindle eBook a day, yesterday I read The Dig by Michael Siemsen.

The Dig was a page turner and I kept reading long past when I should have knocked off and gone to bed. Siemsen tells the story of a young man, Matthew, who is able to glean the past of an object via touch and is brought to Africa to examine a strange object found in an archaeological dig. The object simply doesn't belong, outside forces want to stop Michael, and what he discovers changes how we view human history.

The author does a great job of weaving two threads together and creates an interesting universe that while fantastic never feels unbelievable. The characters were fun and while the historical story-line moves a little slower than the present-day one, both left me waiting for the obvious sequel.
