5.0 out of 5 stars It Was A Thrilling Read., 26 Jun. 2011
This review is from: The Atlantis Code (Thomas Lourdes) (Paperback)
Other Readers seem to have slated this book heavily, however after reading it i really have no idea why. ok, the book may not be some amazing piece of literature which is going to go down in history, but it was definately worth the read.

i like reading books like The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons, The Gaudi Key, i like the chase and the puzzle that the character is trying to solve. This book has been described below as an imitation of some of Dan Brown's work, they called this a bad thing, however its exactly what made me buy it, i like Dan Browns books but i wanted more books to read like his, life would be pretty boring if i only had Dan Browns books to read, and thats what i felt this was, another book in the Dan Brown/puzzle/treasure hunt kind of genre. i found it thrilling, exciting and i struggled to put it down. let me stress i never felt like i was rereading a dan brown novel it just ahd a similar style.

other reviewers have also stated that you could tell exactly what was going to happen, ifind alot of books, movies, tv programs all follow a similar path of here is a character - here is a problem the character faces - here is the solution - the end. this makes elements of most plots predictable, its very rare the main character dies, it rare that some sort of solution is found, but i find its how you get to the solution that is exciting and i felt that this book did this very well. what i like about this book and others in this genre is they the characters hit many problems you never know if there going to hit a dead with one clue and have to go another way etc

other reviewers in my opinion were to harsh on this book, i really enjoyed its fast paced, exciting, thrilling hunt for atlantis.

(sorry i didnt go into much detail in the plot but i felt that would spoil the read for someone else)
