My rating: 3 of 5 stars to Charles Brokaw‘s novel, The Atlantis Code. I was flying to LA for a work trip, leaving from my office in NYC, and realized I forgot to bring a book before I left home. At the airport, I checked a few novels out at the bookshop and stumbled across this one.
I love treasure hunter stories. I am fascinated by the connections authors find between history, religion and missing things. This time, it’s the lost continent and treasures of Atlantis. I had read another book with a similar theme and wanted to see how they compared. Bought it and boarded the plane shortly afterwards.
I think I read about half on the flight out and finished it on the way home. Was a short 2 day trip and I couldn’t read for all 6 hours on the plane… had some work to do, too.
All in all, I liked the book. Lots of great connections. Strong character. Great suspense. Lots of suspicious behavior.
It was your typical novel of this genre. Nothing bad, nothing fantastic. Just a basic good read. And that’s a good thing… just cause it’s not a 5 or 4 doesn’t mean it’s not worth the read. You just need to be the right audience. There are a lot of books out there on this topic and in this genre. If you like Atlantis, read it. You’ll have a great time. If you don’t, maybe pick something else.
It’s very dark when it comes to the religious aspects. I liked it for that reason, but it does get overplayed a lot. Villains come in all shapes and sizes. I’d like to see something new in another book like this.
For those new to me or my reviews… here’s the scoop: I read A LOT. I write A LOT. And now I blog A LOT. First the book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at https://thisismytruthnow.com, where you’ll also find TV & Film reviews, the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I’ve visited all over the world.
