Format:Paperback
This is an excellent overview of what has to be one of the most puzzling structures on the face of the earth. Despite the complexity of the workings on Oak Island, there is absolutely no record of who constructed the "Money Pit" or why. Mr. Finnan provides a very readable summary of the various abortive attempts to get to the bottom of the shaft, and to find whatever is hidden down there (if anything at all). He also shows restraint in his obligatory "author's own theory" of what lies down there, opting for the Original Manuscripts of Shakespeare Theory, which is perhaps a rather weak excuse for such an elaborate structure, but a colorful theory nonetheless. A good weekend read, well worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars A DETAILED ACCOUNT OF THE HISTORY AND ENGINEERING 14 Jan 2000
By lawrence valett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Author Mark Finnan displays his talent at research and love of history, both of which make this book an excellent reference for anyone interested in the mystery of Oak Island. Finnan is a fine writer, and adds a nice human-interest angle in which he details some of the lives of those who have sought the treasure. The first few chapters provide a detailed history in the early colonization of Nova Scotia and the area surrounding Oak Island. However, most of the book provides well written detail of step by step efforts at recovering the treasure, engineering accomplishments, and both geological and archaeological findings on the island, all while telling the story of those who have sacrificed everything to find it in the last 200 years. The book includes some photos, sketches, and excerpts from early accounts and records of the search. The only criticism I have is Finnan's frequent references to the Freemason's involvement throughout the book, culminating in the last few chapters which are devoted to Finnan's own ludicrous theory of what is at the bottom of the treasure Pit. Other than that, it's an excellent guide to anyone wanting the scoop on Oak Island.

4.0 out of 5 stars A MUST FOR OAK ISLAND ENTHUSIASTS 26 Oct 1999
By CHRIS GIAMMARIA (cgiambo@aol.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Oak Island Secrets is a well written book by an author who was practically "sucked" in by the mystic and lure of the world's most elusive treasure. Finnan takes you thru the history of the island, failed attempts of many prospectors, & offers many explanations of what is buried there and by who. This is a very interesting and mysterious story for anyone who has a sense of adventure for buried treasure & unexplained mysteries. It comes highly recommended.
