    Good for Teens, maybe

    This was my first Matthew Reilly read, and quite frankly I'm not anxious for more. Reilly does present a fairly exciting, far-reaching scenario. But much of the plot is juvenile and shallow, and this Australian writer has a lot of research to do about US military and government terminology and organization. Trying to straddle the line between science fiction, adventure, and government conspiracy/mystery seems a little beyond Reilly's grasp. 'Temple' passed the time, but left me wondering if it had been time well-spent.

    You will love this book....

    ...if you are a twelve year old boy. Matthew Reilly makes Clive Cussler seem like James Joyce. The Publisher's Weekly review above is dead on. The book is cartoonish with ridiculous action sequences one after the other. Having said that, the book is reasonably well written and an enjoyable diversion if you're in the mood for a cheesy action adventure to while away an airline flight or a day at the beach. If you have a teenager that you want to encourage to read, pick up a copy of this book for them. They will enjoy it.

    Breathtaking

    Matthew Reilly does not know how to write a dull boring book. This one has more action and cliff hangers than I could count.The author has interesting characters and villans and always picks interesting locales.I would suggest reading Ice Station then Area 7 so that you get a feel for his style.Those 2 books also introduce you to his common character "Scarecrow" I found the nice thing was that you don't necessarily have to read them in any order. He is a great action writer and I hope he has a long career ahead.

    I have always enjoyed Matthew Reilly's books and this one is no exception. If you like history, mystery and adventure this ones for you.

    Reilly is a great author

    Not quite as good as his Scarecrow or Jack West novels - but still a great book.

    Fun indiana jones meets a more everyday man read

    I enjoyed this read. Its an easy quick read that is always moving. Cliched cast and plot for sure but done with eough originality to hold its own. When you stay up till 4am to discover what happens then you know you have a good read.
