“Sleeping Giants” by Slyvain Neuvel

sleeping_giants_cover

A number of giant robot pieces of extremely advanced, extraterrestrial design are discovered and assembled in secret.  It’s a superweapon ala Mechwarrior, cool!  Needs two pilots inside, one for the arms and one for the legs.  A linguist is also on the team, since they need to decipher the console controls.  Oh no!  Love triangle between girl pilot, boy pilot and boy linguist!!

Kind of interesting story at the beginning, but didn’t really go anywhere.  The style is unique – told entirely via “interview records” from some secretive, supra-national, illuminati-esque narrator who is the one calling (most of) the shots.
