Sep 13, James rated it liked it Shelves: 3-multi-book-series , 1-fiction.

I chose this book while walking around an airport, looking for something to read while on a 6-hour flight across the country. Stretching the truth, inventing characters, tying them to real people from the past; it all makes for a great read Jack Howard is a likable protagonist. He's got a few quirks and annoyances, but I think those are necessary to create a memorable character; and when you're running around the globe trying to save the world, or protect the world, and yourself, I can cut you some slack!

Some may criticize the heavy fact-dropping in the story-telling approach. It's useful in some areas, perhaps a little tedious in others. But if you're reading these types of books, it's fairly common.

I plan to pick up the second book at some point, but it's not too high on my list within this genre. There are a few other series with a bit more control on the character and the plot. That said, it's still worth a read if you are interested in "Atlantis," as it covers a lot of ground. And who isn't interested in discovering a lost city?

It could be the key to our future. About Me For those new to me or my reviews I write A LOT. Thanks for stopping by! View 2 comments. Oct 16, Algernon Darth Anyan rated it did not like it Shelves: Easily the worst book I've tried in I am usually very easy to please, witness my 4 star median rating on Goodreads, but Gibbins ticked me in all the wrong places. I am also an advocate of letting readers make up their own opinion and not thrashing any author or book, but my friendly advice is : stay away from this.

I choose the book without any previous research, solely based on the subject of Atlantis. It is, as usual with the theme, not really about ancient Atlantis, but about modern arch Easily the worst book I've tried in It is, as usual with the theme, not really about ancient Atlantis, but about modern archeology and the discovery of the ruins of this particular civilization.

It is also an attempt at writing a techno thriller, and as such the author may have some academical knowledge about history and about archeology but is particularly clueless about technology and mechanics.

Some of his invented materials and devices are examples of wishful thinking and show a lack of understanding of basic principles of physics. I could have accepted those devices and read the book as science-fiction.

But the mode of presentation is awkward and clumsy. Endless dry expositions through "brainstorming" meetings and conferences between the main actors. There is no dialogue, only again the actors entering lecture mode and telling us about the plot.

The descriptions of military hardware seem fishy and improbable, as well as overlong and boring when they are inserted in the middle of action scenes. There's nothing original about the characters or the plot: superheroes against supervillains, agent against mad terrorists bent on world domination. The author expresses some of the worst russo- and islamo-phobia I have come across. My recommendation: try something else.

This book makes even Clive Cussler look like a Booker Prize candidate. View all 6 comments. Sep 18, Anish Kohli rated it did not like it. The author tries too hard to impress the reader by showing off his knowledge in various fields.. The basic story line is way to feeble to maintain grip. All said and done.. View all 20 comments. This book is so wonderfully awful that I can't put it down.

A backstory first: my fiance and I used to get each other romance novels and use a bright yellow highlighter on the really gross, terrible parts. Makes for great airplane reading. I think this book deserves that treatment. All of the characters are described in superlatives and have multiple skills that are completely unrelated to what the person does for a living.

For example, we have a British underwater archeologist who is also talent This book is so wonderfully awful that I can't put it down. For example, we have a British underwater archeologist who is also talented with Russian weaponry, and can fly several types of helicopters.

Atlantis by David Gibbins

Archaeologist Jack Howard is a brave but cautious man. When he embarked on a new search for buried treasure in the Mediterranean, he knew it was a long shot. When he uncovered a golden disc that spoke of a lost civilization more advanced than any in the ancient world, he started to get excited. But when Jack Howard and his intrepid crew finally got close to uncovering the secrets the sea had held for thousands of years, nothing could have prepared them for what they would find The Gods of Atlantis. David Gibbins is the author of twelve novels that have sold over three million copies in thirty languages.
