    Mind Numbing

    If Costas has to be explained everything, I would not trust him with my life on dives. The books are too forced. I can't even finish it. Sorry. I really liked his first book. I would really like his books if Jack didn't have to explain everything to Costas, so we could find the connection plausible. I'm confused on this book. Is it about Boudica, a "Nazarene" , Claudius, Pliny, or church. But what church. I wonder if it just a bunch of names and forced to find a connection.

    I gave up just over half way through the book. I could have read

    I gave up just over half way through the book. I could have read a history book and gotten the same result. This book is 90% dialogue between two people. Of that 90%, 90% is Jack rattling on for paragraphs at a time and Costas uttering one sentence replies egging Jack on.

    The historical angle is interesting, but as one other reviewer put it, the book is mind numbing.

    feels like a cross (no pun intended) between Dan Brown, Clive Cusssler and George Lucas

    Many thought that Claudius died from poisoning in 54 AD, but the diabolical Roman Emperor faked his death and that of his freedman Narcissus because he knew his health did not allow him to rule any longer. He rushes to Herculaneum in the shadows of the Vesuvius where he takes up his writing .He once met with Herod Agrippa who he knew in Rome and later met with him and Jesus in Galilee where he hoped the Christ would cure him of his affliction. He didn¿t but Claudius writes down their encounter but to guard Jesus he hid the scroll in a safe place. ------------------- In the present marine archaeologist Jack Howard confirms that he has found the shipwreck that St. Paul was on when he was being deliveried to Rome. Before Jack and his crew can complete their quest, he is called to Herculaneum by his colleague Costas, who found the secret villa of Claudius that was devastated by an earthquake, but the quake opened up a concealed secret room that contains information about a scroll written by Jesus. They head to Rome seeking the lost gospel there a message sends them to London devotion that leads them to Santa Paulo, California and finally to Jerusalem. The last decipher proves difficult but ultimately they find a secret chamber in a a church those who were following them want them killed.. Jack understands immediately why as what he and Costas has found will send tsunami like waves throughout organized religion.--------------- Obvious Brownian connections aside, this tale is filled with adventure and action as readers will enjoy the escapades of the two brave heroes. Jack is an Indiana Jones style archaeologist who understands the danger he and his friends will face as he accepts the mission. He is on a scavenger hunt that if successful will change the world as he simply seeks the truth, which in some ways may not set people free. David Gibbons provides a fun tale that feels like a cross (no pun intended) between Dan Brown, Clive Cusssler and George Lucas.--------- Harriet Klausner

    Enjoyable but not great

    This book was like a very large jigsaw puzzle, fun at first but got old about halfway through. Made you want to finish to find out what happens but I wanted to be finished. It was like the author wanted to cram too much into one book.

    There is an AWFUL lot of murmuring in this book -- and I do mean

    There is an AWFUL lot of murmuring in this book -- and I do mean awful.  Characters don't speak in this book, they murmur.  Seriously.  Every other page or so, someone is murmuring.  Why not say, speak, intone, whisper, declare, impart, tell, utter, mutter, or even yammer?  Good god, I'm a little more than halfway through and I can't stand all the murmuring already!  Mr. Gibbons, please, please, please find a better editor if you cannot pick up a thesaurus.

    Wonderful! Loved this book!

    What a great spin on history, I was disappointed that the premise was not factual since it was such a great story! However, I truly enjoyed the intrigue and clues along the way. Right up there with the Atlantis story!

    Just enough reality to make it seem more real than fictional.

    The style of the story and the characters are very reminiscent of Clive Cussler and the adventures of Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino. I found it a bit corny at times but all in good fun. I good read to get away from it all. The historical, religious and other factual data combined with the fictional tale keeps your interest and makes the story believable. You just want to go see for yourself if any of it might be true.
