    WHY THIS BOOK IS AMAZING

    There is only one word for this book: 'WOW'. Andrews has vividly created an insight to something that I have enjoyed since age 5. Even the long-dead greek philosipher Plato could've used this perfect work of literature to study his facts for his books. I believe that anyone who loves Atlantis as I do, or think of it as an ilogical mavel, or just a well-put-together myth, will enjoy this book.
