Be advised this is not one of Cook's 'medical thrillers'. It actually has more in common (including some names and plot lines) with James Cameron's movie Abyss. Good sci-fi though, and a fun read.

This is way off the course for Robin Cook. That being said, I found this and exciting and entertaining book that works from start to finish. Recommend you read this if you want to see the imagination of Robin Cook exercise into the realm of bizarre.

This is one of my all-time favorite books. I have the paperback on my shelf and have read it 4 times! (I know - "loser", right? lol) It is a great story of what the lost city of Atlantis might be like if we ever were to find it, with great character development, and such detailed descriptions that you feel like you are right there with the characters. Has just the right amount of science fiction to keep scifi fans interested too. True, it's not typical Robin Cook (whose other books I love as well). Fantastic, shocking ending.

I am dying to see a movie made out of this book.

And its going to be a long time before I read another one. I used to really enjoy his books. Perhaps this one was unusually bad.

This was a very simple and unbelievable book. I never cared about the characters or what might happen to them.

And the storyline idea was a ripoff from The Abyss.

I loved this book. Very interesting plotline and intricately created characters. Cook really did some good plotting on this one, but I wish there had more to the story. This is one I definitely wish there was a sequel too. This book is for Robin Cook fans as well as people who have never read a Cook book before. Highly recommended.
