Fiction Book Review: Atlantis by David Gibbins, Author . Dell $ (p) ISBN
I chose this book while walking around an airport, looking for something to read while on a 6-hour flight across the country. All said and done. Opinion seems to be that the patterning for the costumes on figures in the latter is Hittite. I find underwater archaeology a fascinating subject. Board games from Exploding kittens, Dixit, Sushi Go! The Tiger Warrior David Gibbins.
I almost quit on this book because it was just awful. I just thought this was written really badly. With a crack team of scientific experts and ex—Special Forces commandos, he is heading for what he believes could be the greatest archaeological find of all time—the site of fabled Atlantis—while a ruthless adversary watches his every move and prepares to strike. And I knew if I liked the book there were at least three more by the same author and with the same protagonist.

After another 80 pages or so I was hoping the pace would pick up and halfway through I gave up. Grade 8 Impaq books 9 subjects for sale atlxntis in good condition.
This book was like a bad movie that you only watch giibbins you want to see how bad it really is. There’s a lot of characters knowing what each other are thinking, things happening “before they could react” usually bad guys even though they have a few seconds, which is a long gibbbins in a fight, and unbelievable coincidence.
A scrap of papyrus discovered in an Egyptian desert, which may contain a secondhand account of the lost city, sends Jack scrambling to assemble a team, including Costas, an MIT- and Stanford-trained expert in “submersible technology” and Katya, a beautiful Russian Atlantis specialist.
Can it get any better?
I agree with most of your review of the book, the problems as well as the positives. I have quite a few boxes of books for sale.
In the space of about two days, the characters solved numerous archeological puzzles that have been around for eons, one discovery leading to another and among the three of them they always managed to have the expertise required to answer the puzzle before them.
Only those spices conforming to the name s entered will be shown…. Jack is determined to stop the legacy of Atlantis from falling into the wrong hands, whatever the cost. Atlantiss for stopping by! Cliff I shall post yet another negative review later. About Atlantis From an extraordinary discovery in a remote desert oasis to a desperate race against time in the ocean depths, a team of adventurers is about to find the truth behind the gihbins baffling legend in history.
The author knows his stuff in relation to diving, boats etc but that meant that he went off at a tangent every time a descriptive paragraph was needed – like reading a textbook. I do love wonderfully snide reviews.
David Gibbins — FOUND! Lost city of Atlantis
It’s easy to see why. The writer spends a lot of time talking about underwater technology and weapons, gbbins I meant a lot of time.
This book suffers from excessive rambling. Lists with This Book. On leaving teaching he become a novelist, writing archaeological thrillers derived from his own background. As a result, I couldn’t atlsntis myself to any of the characters. The descriptions of military hardware seem fishy and improbable, as well as overlong and boring when they are inserted in the middle of ggibbins scenes. Hopefully he can learn how to build suspense, hold his audience, and most importantly, create characters to which the reader can relate and come to care about.
