Reviews - What do customers think about Atlantis?

Thank goodness, I didn't have to pay for it.  Jun 24, 2008
WARNing DO NOT waste your money on this book!!!!!

I was given this book at the Atlana airport. I was in the airport bookstore and almost bought the book Crusader Gold by the same author. When another customer in the book store advised me against it. He then gave me his copy of Atlantis and said that I should throw it into a "rubbish bin" (trash can for us americans)when I got tired of trying to read it. Well, nine hours later, I was in London looking for the nearest rubbish bin to dump this dreck in.


The plotline started out pretty good, then turned stupid.

VeRRRRRY long winded dialog about places and science that nobody is interested in unless you are an archeological grad student.

The lead charactors are the three smartest bravest, toughest prettiest people alive. Not to mention incredibly rich. (even the female character was tougher than the terminator). when ever somebody needed to know something. the Girl genius was there with a 10 page explanation of how everything worked, why it worked and what it meant.

I had to force myself to continue reading it but after I finished the book, I kept asking my self why I bothered.

The book really was that bad.

Novels of Adventure and Archaeology  Jun 10, 2008
David Gibbins' two novels reflect an unusual ability to craft a novel around unfamiliar facts in archaeology and history. He does the serious reader a service by distinguishing in his Author's Note historical fact from literary invention. As an amateur historian, I appreciate this specificity.
The characters and their technology in both Atlantis and Crusader Gold are a reasonable means for conveying select bits of history in an entertaining sequence, rather than [by themselves] being the center of drama.
Gibbin's description of Atlantis' time, location, and historical contribution in this novel is not unreasonable. The only other work of reason on Atlantis years ago was that of Otto Muck, a geophysicist who approached the topic in a scientific manner looking for geophysical facts as opposed to cultural beliefs.
I look forward to Gibbins' next novel.

impressive fun read  Jun 9, 2008
I'm a picky reader. If the book does not entertain after 30 pages, it's rejected. I was running out of books to read until i came upon this one. It's just so fun to read. The words used comes to life and I'm totally involved in their discovery process. I can't wait to wake up the next morning and continue the read. I'm glad he wrote 2 other books for me to enjoy.

150 pages into the story, I begin to daze off at parts because I'm having trouble remembering all the places, eras, civilizations mentioned. There really are alot of history info, so I imagine it still makes a good book for the history buff; but I found I didn't even pick up the book to read yesterday, and don't know about today.
So boring it made me angry  May 23, 2008
I had read some of the negative reviews about this book, but it sounded interesting, so I decided to give it a chance anyway. I made it about halfway through before I gave up, angry for having wasted time and money on it. And I almost never give up on novels.

The premise is interesting, but instead of telling the story, Gibbins wastes too much time on irrelevant technical details. Gibbins clearly knows what he's writing about and has some good ideas, but he doesn't know how to tell a story. This is the most boring novel I can remember. It kept my interest for about 100 pages. After another 80 pages or so I was hoping the pace would pick up and halfway through I gave up. In fact, because I sometimes suffer from insomnia, I tried to use it instead of sleeping pills, but it only made me angry by how boring it was.

My recommendation is: Trust the bad reviews on this one and don't waste your time and money.
I dunno  Apr 25, 2008
It's a great book if you are looking for theories on Atlantis but it's a pain in the neck if you are an ordinary reader thinking you are reading a great adventure book.
It's full of facts, fiction or real and it's chock full of info. Info I wasn't looking for. Therefor is was a drag ploughing through this book only to have the story fold on me as a: "ooohhhh humanity cannot bear this kind of knowledge" kinda book.
If you are a trivial persuit player: buy it!! If not....Nice to know, but not nice to read.
