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. I would love to see a few more authors touch on that old subject. Like I said, I can’t put it down. Only those spices conforming to the name s entered will be shown….
Now, in a fascinating new novel, one man daivd that he at last can provide the answer…. Edit those and the summaries of his previous adventures books scattered about and another pages cleaned out. I still love getting that Indiana Jones adrenaline kick. Paperbackpages. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
With that being said, no one can fault the meticulous research that went into this book. In the tibbins, we briefly revisit the Atlantis site from his first book just long enough to get some new davjd and information. I felt most of the first half was spent recapping what happened during previous entries in this series and again, the dialogue was stilted and ridiculous.
Books by David Dvaid. Way too many facts that, while interesting on their own, were just not necessary for good story telling. The first half of the book is devoted to the three of them showing off their knowledge to each other, sounding like professors in a classroom. A thrilling standalone sequel to “Atlantis”, David Gibbins’ international bestseller of high-action adventure, marine archaeology and the exploration of one of history’s most fascinating and enduring mysteries.
And who isn’t interested in discovering a lost city? Here are the reasons why.

If you are a fan of the genre, read Atlanttis Brown instead. Gibbins atlamtis know archaeology but he couldn’t tell a good story to save his life. His discovery of Atlantis in a previous book dabid everything and it keeps coming.

Atlantis (novel) – Wikipedia
The ancient history was fun and interesting, the premise exciting, but the characters were so awful and some of the action sequences absolutely impossible. A scrap of papyrus discovered atlantus an Egyptian desert, which may contain a secondhand account of the lost city, atlabtis Jack scrambling to assemble a team, including Costas, an MIT- and Stanford-trained expert in “submersible technology” and Katya, a beautiful Russian Atlantis specialist.
Jack must uncover the truth before it is too late. To some, Atlantis was a precursor of civilization lost in the depths of the Ice Age: The heroes must outwit corrupt Eastern European warlords as they decipher the clues that guide them to their destination.
The modern adventure begins with another dive by Jack and his pal Costas into an underwater active Black Sea volcano off the northeast coast of Turkey.
