3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Rai Aren on 13 May 2010
Format: Paperback
I am a big fan of ancient mysteries, action adventure stories & thrillers, so I was immediately intrigued when I came across The Samson Effect & the blurb from Clive Cussler sealed the deal. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it's an engaging read with a good sense of place, relentlessly fast pacing, and is populated with lively, colourful characters. A secret held since biblical times has been protected by an ancient order, but there are opposing forces closing in on it. It can impart superhuman powers & near invincibility, so the draw is irresistible. Should it fall into the wrong hands, the consequences could be disastrous.

Mr. Eldridge certainly has a flair for storytelling and creating an interesting mystery. I would have liked it if he had taken even more time in telling it - relationships & events happened quickly and could have afforded a lengthier path to develop.

The ending hints at more mysteries to come, which I hope does happen. I would not hesitate to pick up the next novel by this author. Recommended for readers who enjoy thrillers, action adventure tales, quick reads, and ancient mysteries.

Rai Aren, co-author of the award-winning mystery novel Secret of the Sands

A fantastic concept here, executed incredibly well by Tony Eldridge who, I believe, is a first time novelist.
The likening to a modern day Indiana Jones is not an exaggeration, this is a real roller coaster, thrill a minute page turner.
Criticisms? One minor one. Mr. Eldridge has a tendency to use too many words on occasion - I stumbled over the odd sentence, but it in no way detracts from the detailed plot and the terrific action. If a movie is indeed in the pipeline, I'll be there. Well done.

The Samson Effect - Tony Eldridge Kindle Edition

The storyline was quite good but the tale was a bit of a foxhunter - better in the chase than in the catching - the 'Samson Effect' did not really hold up as a viable possibility. Full marks however for the unusal concept.

A few spelling and homophonic errors and a couple of historical/religious error which probably originate from the King James re-write and editing of the old testament books. Never-the-less an enjoyable read. I shall look out for this author's future offerings.

I really enjoyed the first three quarters of this book and would have given it 4-5 stars if the final chapters had been better. However, for me it started to fall apart when having found the `treasure' of the story the main characters, who up until then had been rather clever, suddenly became rather stupid and the ending came all rather predictably. Shame because it started all so well

The basic premise is a bit far fetched but the book is well written and the various threads kept coming together and separating again so that the reader wanted to find out what happened next. The biblical facts seemed very authentic, as they should, in view of the author's background in biblical research. I would certainly read another book by the same author.

What an imagination Tony Eldridge has, obviously a lot of research and first hand knowledge of the subject matter made this a thoroughly enjoyable read. Tony Eldridge is a writer who is well worth following.

Fascinating story, It is well written and it develops the characters well. Kept me gripped to the last page.and has got me on the hunt for similar sort of stories by the same author.
