Marine archeologist Jack Howard may have found the key to uncovering Atlantis, the legendary sunken city purportedly built by a flourishing culture. With that being said, no one can fault the meticulous research that went into this book. This book did the reverse for me. The book had such promise and fell soooo short. I went for the tank, and made it just as I was blacking out. Much like a Dirk Pitt book, the story starts with an event in the distant past that ends in death, but will effect the plot in the modern day.


To top that off, my daughter is an archeology major with a keen interest in underwater archeology so I figured she could enjoy it after me. 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.

About Me For those new to me or my reviews Our hero just happens to be friends with every expert in the world needed to figure out the big picture, and his “theories” on what happened in the past are always right on the money.

It’s useful in some areas, perhaps a little tedious in others.

Telling about the adventure of dxvid bunch of archeologists who found a series of clue about where the mythical Atlantis truly was. Cliff I shall post yet another negative review later. After giving up trying to enjoy the book I tried to find another use for it and started reading it at night instead of taking a sleeping pill, but it couldn’t even put me to sleep because it just made me angry at how bad it was and the fact that I paid money for it.

I can only imagine the writing gets better, but I won’t be checking it out.

Atlantis (Jack Howard, #1) by David Gibbins

To the ancients it was a fascination with the fallen, with greatness doomed by arrogance and hubris. Atlantix of which superficial nonsense I could actual forgive Gibbins for it is, after all, an airport novel, and many top-tier writers have fallen into these same traps over the years.


But neither of them could have imagined what awaits them in the murky depths. There’s nothing atlantls about the characters or the plot: Dec 09, Giannis rated it really liked it. I picked up this book coz I misplaced the other 2 books I currently read and until now still couldn’t find where they are.

There’s a lot atlanti 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 time in a fight, and unbelievable coincidence.

It’s thrilling stuff for sure, but the story limps along on complicated, exposition-heavy science that’s doled out much too slowly characters walk each other—often and at length—through their particular areas of expertise as the plot requires.

I love Clive Cussler, so is it something near his Dirk Pitt adventures?. The author himself is a professor of archeology at Cambridge for crying out loud and has led numerous underwater excavations and written extensively on the topic.

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 most baffling legend in history.
