A cross between a Clive Cussler (Dirk Pitt/Kurt Austin) novel and a James Bond novel.
Worthy first effort. Plot slow to develop as reader is lectyred to about science. Last part of book action picks up. If the lost continent interests you, this is the book for you.
I was hoping for something along the lines of James Rollins, who is first rate at mixing history/archaelogy/science with the action we expect to find in a book like this.
I was extremely disappointed. There was way too much technical jargon, so that I felt it was more a lecture than a story being told. The main characters are so smart, all of their predictions are always right on the mark, they always have the exact technology to get the job done, blah blah blah.
I pushed on past my usual page 100 because I liked the idea of the plot and thought it would make way for less talk, more action. Nope.
Not worthy of any more of my time spent on it so I gave up and I'm not sorry I did.
I usually love this type of book. However I never could get into this one. It's one of the few that I've abandoned half way through.
A slow read in the beginning. The set up of the scienctific portion of the novel becomes literary speed bumps in sections. Once the main story line unfolds after about page 120, the tempo picks up. Overall, one of those novels I would refer to as "brain candy". The theories that are posed with regard to the Bible are outside my beliefs. Overall, a mediocre read.
