This book is a good escape, on a dreary day. There were parts that were a little "hokey". Overall, I like the book. The ending did take me by surprise. I expected them to find one thing and they find the complete opposite, but implications, are huge. Even though this book is fiction, I love the books that make wonder...What if? This did exactly that.

Not bad for a first novel although techonologically overwhelming

This is the author's first novel revolving around the search for Atlantis. There is no doubting Dr. Gibbin's educational qualifications and expertise as a diver, but he lets the technological aspects of diving overshadow the literary aspects of his work. However, it's ...
This is the author's first novel revolving around the search for Atlantis. There is no doubting Dr. Gibbin's educational qualifications and expertise as a diver, but he lets the technological aspects of diving overshadow the literary aspects of his work. However, it's still not a bad story and I found it to be both informative and entertaining. He also enlightens us about the disgraceful practices and detrimental effect of the black market on archeological artifacts as well as highlighting the brilliance of the ancients, something we do not fully appreicate. I would recommend you give it a try but be patient.

    almost, but not quite there...

    When I read the synopsis, I was expecting something along the lines of DaVinci Code. This did not happen. I did not even finish this book, and usually as long as I have started one leaving it half way is not something I do. The characters could have been good. The plot was interesting but didn't quite make it...that's what I felt this whole book was, just not quite there. I kept reading on to see if it would pick up but it just didn't happen for me.

    Dont waste your time

    I don't usually write reviews but I am on chapter 11 of this book and I feel the need to voice my opinion. I was fooled by the cover and description on the back of this book. I read the first few pages and felt like this story was going to be good. Now I am stuck in a world of scientific verbage I don't understand. If you don't have a degree in archeology the book reads like greek. I hate to start a book and not finish it but I am very close to throwing this one in my fire place. The nerve of the cover to compare this work to dan brown. You can't even get into the story. There is no story. Just science and geography. Egh.<BR/>Don't buy it<BR/>Don't bother<BR/>I did not intend to give this book any stars the computer won't let me take the 1 I have away.
