    Captivating Story

    Michael Cole's new book, Secrets of El Tovar Canyon, is a captivating story of the "aliens have visited earth" theme found often in American literature. However, Cole's creative angle and more believable plot involves the pyramids of Egypt and El Tovar Canyon on the Colorado River in Grand Canyon, Arizona. Cole's writing is direct and not convoluted. His character's are vivid and interesting in and of themselves. The book is a quick read with short chapters and it held my interest throughout a round-trip flight from LAX to Detroit. Some movie director--like Steven Spielberg--could develop a good and profitable movie out of Cole's story.

    Sincerely,

    Gil Thibault

    Review

    I enjoyed this read, but found the Papyrus Document much better. There are some mistsakes that probably have nothing to do with the author. However, Mr. Cole, neither the pyramids of Giza, nor the Sphinx are located in The Valley of the Kings. Not even close.

    Big on adventure, not on science

    Let's call it a 'fantasy adventure', not a 'sci-fi' adventure. Any pretense at genuine science is quickly lost. The author can't even spell the star "Aldebaran", which figures into one of the major plot points. It comes out as "Alderban", which is said to be "one of the most prominent stars in Orion" even though Aldebaran is in Taurus, not Orion.

    Elsewhere there is a metal that is 24K gold with 6% alloy of something else, but 24K gold is 99.9% gold so couldn't have over 0.1% of anything else in it.

    Those are just a few examples of the scientific nonsense that powers this story forward. Still, as a mindless, escapist fantasy adventure, it works. Disengage brain before reading.
