Atlantis by David Gibbins | : Books
Unfortunately, even when it got to the ‘juicy bit’ I was still bored. Telling about the adventure of a bunch of archeologists who found a series of clue about where the mythical Atlantis truly was.
The author expresses some of the worst russo- and islamo-phobia I have come across. Could there gibbinss be a terrifying new version of ‘Atlantis’, a priesthood of evil? Poorly written and no character development. Yes, they killed his friends, etc etc: There is no dialogue, only again the actors entering lecture mode and telling us about the plot.
I find that to be beyond annoying. But neither of them could have imagined what awaits them in the murky depths.

Fiction Book Review: Atlantis by David Gibbins, Author . Dell $ (p) ISBN
Unfortunately, that passion is so narrowly focused on educating, that it sacrifices key elements that makes fiction writing good—solid, reasonable characterization, pacing and showing instead of telling.
There’s a lot of characters knowing what each atoantis 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.
As such, I am rating this one a 2.
The price is negotiable. I found this book in The Friends of Library for sale section at my local library for 50 cents. He’s a marine archaeologist for goodness sake, not a search-and-destroy kind of soldier.
And there are many, I tell you, and unnecessary. Still in good condition my son has no use for them. It could be the key to our future. To the ancients it was a fascination with the fallen, with greatness doomed by arrogance and hubris.
But don’t know why, I can’t make up my mind yet. The Mask of Troy David Gibbins. I made it about halfway through this book. Some reasons for one star: Measurements for everything given down to the last centimeter; the acronym laser is spelled out in full, unnecessary definition and delivered by one of the most egregious uses of info. The writer spends a lot of time talking about underwater technology and weapons, and I meant a lot of time.
Return to Book Page. Unfortunately, like many others who have reviewed it here on Goodreads, I found the techno-babble too much and on the numerous occasions when the author felt the need to tell me everything in excruciating detail found myself skipping over chunks of the text. I really loved the premise of this book. It was Ireland, it was Australia, it was off the Spanish port of Cadiz, off Morocco, capital of a global pre-Ice Age civilization, terrestrial HQ of an intergalactic empire … For Gibbins, the truth is more straightforward.
Brackendowns, Alberton,South Africa. The plot, if you can believe it, is even more outrageous than the character descriptions. 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 sleepin This is the only novel I’ve rated withing finishing it.
The historical conspiracy angle gives the book Da Vinci -esque appeal, and the intense visual details of the team’s marine discoveries make it naturally cinematic, but if history and science lectures aren’t your cup of Dramamine, you might want to give this one a pass. It was just endless bad dialogue and detailed desciptions of irrelevant technical details.
Now, in a fascinating new novel, one man thinks that he at last can provide the answer…. Sep 16, Bellady rated it it was ok. Kindly note only hat’s app messages will be attended. The guy deserves a Nobel prize compared to this book. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Combine that with a theory on the location of Atlantis and write it in novel form, and you have me caught as an interested reader.
