This was the first book I read by Mr. Grossman. I agree with the reviewer that said this should be made into a movie. This story had all the suspense, betrayal, and intrique and was just as fascinating as The Davinci Code. I would certainly watch it on TV or pay to see it on the big screen. Highly recommend this read to everyone looking for a thrilling page turner.

I thought parts if the book were a bit rushed and could have used more details, but I enjoyed the read as I enjoyed his other books.

In the early 1600s Galileo's views that the earth revolved around the sun were challenged by astronomers. There was a formal inquisition and it was concluded that Galileo's arguments could only be presented as conjecture. In what was considered an act of heresy, Galileo later published his views, which many believed to be an attack on Pope Urban VIII. Galileo was tried, and spent the remainder of his life under house arrest. Fast forward to present day in Gary Grossman's geological thriller Old Earth . . . Dr. Quinn McCauley, a professor of paleontology, along with a team of his top students, are on a dig in Montana where they hope to find some rare dinosaur bones. Instead, they unearth an artifact which defies common logic and challenges Galileo's story as told by historians. McCauley and a trusted colleague are determined to reveal the truth behind their discovery of this centuries' old conspiracy. But members of a secret society are bent on keeping the world from learning the truth behind Galileo's discovery. Gary Grossman has authored a gripping thriller which challenges the dogmas of faith and science as they pertain to a world historical viewpoint. With a fascinating premise and cerebral substratum, this book keeps a steady pace as the author skillfully vacillates between the past and present while challenging long held beliefs within the pages of this compelling novel.

Old Earth has the thrilling twists and turns of  DaVinci Code but with an intelligence and sense of history (and science fiction) that keep readers engaged from start to finish. Both fun and thought-provoking. What more could you ask from a summer read?
