Lost me early and I couldn't raise the interest to pick the book back up again. It's too bad, because I eagerly read the entire Left Behind series, but this was different. It started out promising, archaeology, intrigue, a nefarious plot, good guys and bad guys. Early on, a character was killed, given it was a character we knew little about and had not cared about, but the manner in which he was killed, the reaction of the only witness, and the promise from the killer that "there will be many more things you'll be asked to do..." just destroyed my interest in going any further. I just don't have the stomach for that, especially starting that early on in the book. Sure, the Left Behind books had lots of gruesome deaths, but you were at least prepared for it and at least felt some empathy. This was out of nowhere, someone we weren't familiar with, and the promise that many more were to come wasn't anything I was interested in finding out about. I guess I'm in the minority, the other reviews are positive, but this just wasn't for me.
I was disappointed in this book. It felt like a cross between a bad Tom Selleck movie and Indiana Jones. To be fair, it was action packed. But the good guys were too good and the bad guys were too bad. It wasn't realistic. I guess after Murphy finds the first artifact in like half an hour....I got kind of ticked off. I mean....something that's been lost of thousands of years and he finds it on the first try? Come on. But if you can get past the phoniness and just go w/the flow. You may like this book. Me, I give it a 6.
I found this boring.
Read to the 14th chapter but couldn't force myself to keep going.
I hate to leave a book unread like that, but this one I was glad to stop
