It´s my second read of this book and it is still as fun as I remember. The perfect novel when you just want to read something fastpaced, actionpacked and suspenseful and you don´t want to use a lot of brainpower on the words you are reading. And to all of you who don´t like gore: there is a lot of it in this book.
The science is incredibly wacky (genetics in the 90s), but I loved the setting of the museum and the great characters, especially excentric Agent Pendergast and goodhearted, down-to-earth Lieutenant D´Agosta.
I didn´t like the epilogue, though, because it felt completely out of place and it has only been included to hint at a continuation of the story. I could easily have done without the epilogue.
I´ve read this for the monster square and trust me, there is a monster. I´m just not telling you what kind it is.
