I admit to having this book for a few months before really getting into it. I read the first few chapters which didn't excite me and started reading other stuff. I started reading it again and then just had to finish it. If you like action, good goodies, caricature baddies, time portals and have a an ability to suspend credulity, then give it a try!

Couldn't put this down once I'd started. The story has huge scope and imagination and I can't wait for the next installment. I found it listed under sci-fi, but it's also a fast-paced thriller, with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure. Great plot and characters.

In the post Dan Brown DaVinci Code world, there’s a big market for conspiracy theory thrillers. I’ve read many of them – perfect holiday fodder. Fast paced, exciting, they’re ideal when you just want to be swept along for a grand adventure without having to think too hard about it. The Atlantis Gene satisfies all the needs of this corner of the market, while boasting some neat sci-fi concepts.

The plot is suitably convoluted and with enough ‘dun dun dun’ moments that I would have been turning pages rapidly, had I not been listening to the audiobook version. The trick with stories like this is to blend enough plausibility amongst the fantastical so that the reader isn’t thrown into the ‘This is stupid’ realm of suspension of disbelief. Riddle managed to keep me walking the tightrope of ‘is this for real, or is he just making it up?’ long enough that when Nazis in a submarine buried under the ice for several decades came up, I was totally prepared to roll with it.

Kate and David were likeable characters, too – a good dose of chemistry between them, and enough vulnerability to keep them human. Even Field Agent David wasn’t a superhuman machine repelling bullets, which I liked a lot – too many heroes in these sorts of stories magically dodge so many disasters it gets a bit laughable

I’ll admit, there were some sections that I probably would have been itching to skip over, had I not been listening to the audiobook version. There’s a section in the middle where Kate spends several chapters reading someone else’s journal.

I found this book quite difficult to read. The constant switching between chapters rather fragmented the story but I persevered!
Eventually, after several chapters, the story started to unfold and some semblance of the story emerged. It is a novel concept and takes the reader on a journey to various parts of the world,most of which are real. I liked the idea of time distortion but the story got confusing towards the end and I lost the plot completely with regard to the main characters and their role.
Please don't be put off by my review, I enjoy a good science fiction cum thriller but for me,this one fell down on its continuity, hence the three stars.

By C. Green TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 26 Nov 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
The Atlantis Gene (and its follow-up that I don't have the energy to review separately) are both examples of decent ideas in search of some narrative discipline.

Essentially offering yet another twist on the Chariots of the Gods myth, The Atlantis Gene is chock full of ideas and concepts. So much so that they often overwhelm the narrative and leave it struggling to keep up. Aliens, genetics, hidden conspiracies, end-of-the-world cataclysms, lost civilisations, regeneration; the list of plot developments is simply too numerous for any book to cope with effectively.

A classic example of a self-published work, had The Atlantis Gene landed in the hands of decent editor at an earlier stage I am sure some AG Riddle's myriad ideas would have been relegated to later novels in the series, leaving a cleaner, more focused and grounded first entry that was easier to get to grips with. Instead we have book that bounces from wild plot development to even wilder plot development at such speed that I never really managed to engage with events on the page.

I came back for the second volume in the series really out of curiosity to see if it improved on Part 1, only to discover that if anything it was even worse, with even wilder flights of technological fancy unsupported by anything approaching a cohesive plot or plausible, realistic characters.

I definitely will not be coming back for part 3.

This started off in a pacy, fast manner but then quickly became confusing flitting about all over the place for no reason other than to confuse the reader. The characters and story were thin - Dr Warner would be in therapy for years after what she has endured! & her accomplice has had more cliched escapes than James Bond could ever imagine. After a while i gave up wondering what the Immari corp was up to and I know there's a sequal so the heroes escape. I could not enagage with the story or develop and interest in the characters they are so shallow, and quickly lost interest & then hit the delete button.
