    pretty good

    i actually thought this book was pretty good. there wasnt as much action as in the movies but it was just enough to keep you interested. i thought the thing that made this book interesting was the fact that it was kind of mysterious in a way because you never really figure out Dorian (the antagonist) and i found that intriguing.

    Indy's boring adventure!

    Ever since seeing Harrison Ford play Indiana Jones In Raiders of the Lost Ark back in the early eighties, I was hooked and couldn't get enough. Speilberg and Lucas had really defined what true adventure was and they spared no expense. As the eighties wore on, we were treated to a couple more Indy movies and the Indy chronicles on TV - which I watched over and over again. Then I happened upon the series of books and was prepared for new adventures with my favorite hero. I read The Peril at Delphi and had to put it down after fifty pages. Nearly a month went by when I decided to pick the book up again, starting fresh from the beginning. I'm sorry but I was expecting far more from an Indy novel. I finished this book weeks later simply out of willpower. Although there were some good scenes and interesting bits about Indy as a young man, I kept wondering where all the action was. Plus, the villian, Dorian, didn't act menacing enough for me. Remember, Indy's fans are used to seeing the bad guys try and shoot him, run him over, and spear him - not to mention trying to rip his heart out. Dorian didn't do anything like this. I think the worst thing Indy had to fear was the publisher cancelling the series. Anyway, I will not give up on my hero just yet. Since I received the entire series of books as a gift, I'll try reading book 2. It's too bad Cambell Black wasn't hired to write the series because he did an outstanding job writing the Raiders tie-in book for the movie. Not only did I read the book when it came out, but saw the movie eight times in the theater.
