3.0 out of 5 stars Dangerously Sophisticated Writing. 26 July 2016
By Peejay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very interesting story where ancient Mayans left more than we thought. Lydia is the star of this story, one I am sure she appreciates. She and Julio are part of an archeological team studying the Mayan ruins. They are pleasantly surprised when they find a piece with Mayan writing never before seen. But the pictures on this piece appear to be more recent than when the Mayans were here.

Lydia flies to the states to meat her niece and to work on a project that encompasses technology with Mayan influence. She meets the curator of the museum as well as Claude, the technological guru. But things aren't always as they seem. Lydia believes in the Mayan gods and has studied them for years . She carries her zaztun with her and when she goes into the simulation, she actually goes to the Mayan city.

Her niece dies while traversing that path, but Lydia manages to go and return. But can she stay away? She is driven to return as there us unfinished business. Will she save her friend from death as he accompanied her on one trip?? Julio asked her to marry him and he shows up where she is at, but can he prevent the catastrophic issue that is about to befall her?? Not sure.....you must read on my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mayan Interface Makes Us Think 31 May 2015
By Kitty Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Mayan Interface by Wim Coleman and Pat Perrin is a novel about synthesis, particularly synthesis between our world of technology and the world of the Mayans. But it is not just a novel about synthesis, it is also a novel with a thesis. However, unlike most thesis novels, Mayan Interface is light and graceful reading. The characters are humorous, and sad, and real, and, like us, not in complete possession of all the facts. A lively, sensitive female archaeologist meets a master computer whiz-kid who is attempting to create a virtual reality Mayan city. Because of the pockets of non-understanding each character brings to the project, there are incidents where science gets out of hand and lives are threatened. Yes, the novel ends on a comfortable note, but we aren’t allowed to forget that the unknowably rich Mayan culture is still in ruins.
The authors are wise enough to slip in welcome allusions to other books, real and fictive. One, Milpa Spirits, written by the protagonist and quoted extensive in Mayan Interface, is a book about Mayan spiritual beliefs (and, even if it doesn’t exist, it’s a book I’d like to read). The authors also sneak in an extensive and amusing dialogue regarding one of the greatest books about cultural evolution, Julian Jaynes’s must-read The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, a title that captures the great humor and equally great complexity of its author.
Mayan Interface also reminds of us of parallels between what happened to the Mayans and what is happening to us. We (us, now) need to consider what made these great Mesoamerican cultures so vulnerable, so breakable. (Surely it wasn’t just conquistadors or measles, because we aren’t worried about these anymore, right?) I wonder how many of us agree that our current mode of life is turning out to be as unsustainable as the inexplicable blood rituals of the Aztecs. (Wait a minute! I do know Mayans and Aztecs aren’t the same, but when all that is left of a great culture is an array of beautiful enigmatic artifacts, we need to think about that, and think hard.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Just loved it! 22 Jun. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
.... and would love to read more like this novel. I learned on one hand quite a bit about the Maya. I love novels written in a style like this one, dense, thrilling not knowing what to expect round the next corner so to speak using historic background and research. Having some experiences with shamanic work and ways and having said this, I know everything is possible. To interface with Condi is just another step in a possible future , past, present and makes the story even more thrilling keeping you on the edge of the chair.
Reading the novel at some point I even almost regretted that it will end sooner or later - knowing no novel like this one by the authors is available at this time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent fictional history 21 Aug. 2013
By Arnreid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I rarely give a book 5 stars, but this novel really has earned it. It features a strong feminine hero and other mature adults-well drawn and sophisticatedly researched. Although much of the conflict in the book demands a suspension of disbelief, the action draws the reader in and allows him or her to willingly suspend that disbelief. As a reader, I was moved to examine some of the resource material which the authors quoted in their afterwords. And I found their archaeological and psychological science to be very well represented in this novel. The authors take what might be somewhat dry subjects and infuse them with a life and vigor and personality which is extremely attractive. I reached the end of each chapter not wanting to stop, and I read the whole book in a matter of two days time. Not only was it compellingly intriguing, but also it was free of those common typological and spelling errors that annoy me so much in Ebooks. I will definitely investigate other works by these authors!
