I Enjoyed the Book Very Much
on 24 October 2007
Tom Harper is a pseudonym of Edwin Thomas, who grew up in West Germany, Belgium and America before returning to England to study history at Lincoln College, Oxford. Writing under the name of Tom Harper he has written three previous books: The Mosaic of Shadows, Knights of the Cross and Siege of Heaven. He writes the type of books that I usually enjoy.
The Lost Temple, could by some people be called another Da Vinci Code clone and in some ways I suppose it is. It is about the world's most dangerous treasure that has been lost to mankind for three thousand years. Now the code is about to be broken. Deciphered it could lead to one of the greatest prizes in history,
The treasure could be as dangerous as it is valuable and all the major governments in the world want it. For starters the CIA are after it and so are the Russians and it is a race against time for who is going to get what could be the greatest and also the deadliest find there has ever been.
The book contains all the factors necessary to make an appealing and exciting story. Yes it may be similar to the Da Vinci Code and many other books published since, bo so what, not every book has to be a literary classic, sometimes we just want to be taken out of ourselves and entertained and i think that this book does that. I for one enjoy this type of novel and if you don't, well, that is the point of the review, you will not buy it.
