I iiked the book
The idea that the Maya knew something is going to happen in 2012 is well laid out in the book by showing how interested they were in the sky and how they were probably the best astronomers in the ancient world. Having chapters with both the present day and the ancient one was good. I had never heard of Tula and it was interesting to find out that it was the land of milk and honey to the ancient Maya and Aztecs and that many of their customs and architecture came from Tula. I went to Chichen Itza and was told it had Toltec influences despite being in the heart of the Maya territory. I didn't understand then, but I do now. I liked the book, it moved fast and everything was interesting.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Fast Paced Book
I liked Apocalypse 2012. I like books where there are different things going on in different places but it all relates to the same plot. In the book, there were three storylines. A thousand years ago, in the ancient world, a young man named Coyotl has secret knowledge of the Maya 2012 end of the world prophecy and has recorded it in a codex. He has to stay alive until he gets it written because there are people back then who want the information. In the modern world, the president is working to deal with all the global threats we have to the planet, like rogue asteroids and super volcanoes. And the third storyline is a mission the government sent to Mexico find the codex and the battle over possession of it. There is a lot of action but also a lot of historical stuff about the Aztecs and Maya in ancient Mexico and information about the real threats we have to our survival today.Was this review helpful?
