Makes for great airplane reading. The characters have none. This book was like a bad movie that you only watch because you want to see how bad it really is.
The action concludes with a confrontation of the forces of good and evil in the Bahama Islands near the island of San Salvador. I would recommend this book to anyone and I would recommend starting at the beginning, which I’m going to do as soon as I can track down the first book in the series.
The latest of the Jack Howard series. I really had trouble with this one. 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.
We are experiencing technical difficulties.
If you’re interested in atlanti all named usung longs lists of abreviations and numbers then you’ll love this book. Also enormous amounts of information and background on mythology, archaeology and other historical facts are touched in the book. Oh well, just beginning reading it, and not yet halfway, so hoping I 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.
That does not make me better then anyone else. Way too many facts that, while interesting on their own, were just not necessary for good story telling. This book is slowed by pages and pages of usesless detail and it is distracting.

Atlantis (Jack Howard, #1) by David Gibbins
Money is often a problem with doing fieldwork, so it would be a nice bonus. He’s a marine archaeologist for goodness sake, not a search-and-destroy kind of soldier.
The suspense made it hard to put down despite the occasional annoying bits I’ve mentioned. With so much going on, I had to pay really close attention to all the details and characters to make sure I knew what was going on — really the downside to pick up a series on the 6th book! Gordon Childe, the Gibbinss Treasure genre of the ‘s, the Dirk Pitt style genre, and the Epic of Gilgamesh to weave another fantastic tale.

Thus I find it safe to say that Gibbins has successfully integrated his fictional story into real historical events. Davif Gibbins, the truth is more straightforward. Download our Spring Fiction Sampler Now. Meticulously researched, with characters that leap off the page.
Stretching the truth, inventing characters, tying them to real people from the past; it all makes for a great read This was not gifted to me but paid for and picked out by happenstance in a drug store locally, which is a rare thing for me to do, which I will keep in my library and reread for many years, loaning out only to people who are staying over, otherwise I’ll never see it again. But is there a horrifying new dimension – another ingredient in the Nazi’s rule of terror?

Fiction Book Review: Atlantis by David Gibbins, Author . Dell $ (p) ISBN
I had to know what Jack would find and how the story would unfold. Your email address will not be published. I would have loved more time with the U-Boat, but I understand.
After page after page of tedious underwater messing about in lava flows I got totally bored with the whole thing. Ever since then, historians, adventurers, explorers and multitudes of New Atlsntis nuts have advanced theories about its location and significance.
I made it about halfway through this book. I also didn’t like that whatever situation the main character found himself in, he had always done it or found himself in that situation before so there was no sense of peril because he easily got out of it in a few sentences.
Hey editor, edit this crap out and the book would be 50 pages shorter and a better read. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. I love books dealing with Nazi supernatural stuff and this book did not disappoint.
What are the odds? Aug 24, Nikos rated it did not like it. His prologue to his latest novel of marine archaeologist-adventurer Jack Howard davud a taut short story of survival on the open seas. It’s a great mix of archeology and action. I very much enjoyed the previous books in this series so was looking forward to reading this.

Instead of seeking it in some fantastic location, we should be looking for it in stlantis heart of the ancient world where civilization began. The novel is davod paced and full of action, spread out over the course of three days.
