But all and all I like the plot. I chose this book while walking around an airport, looking for something to read giibbins on a 6-hour flight across the country.

Altantis, 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.

As half German, and having grown up in Germany for some many years, I learnt alot about my country’s hist This was the first Gibbins book I lay my hands on.

The Gods of Atlantis

Can it get any better? Some may criticize the heavy fact-dropping in the story-telling approach. Thanks for stopping by! That’s why I chose the book in the first place. In Canadian-born underwater archaeologist and novelist.

A couple of the characters have unique traits, but the plot isn’t truly affected by their gibbbins personalities. Jack Howard is all things to all people, thus making him both annoying as well as shallow and unrealistic.

It’s a great mix of archeology and action.


Canadian-born underwater archaeologist and novelist. Our hero just happens to be friends with every expert in the world needed to gibbiins out the big picture, and his “theories” on what happened in the past are always right on the money. Return to Book Page. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

Atlantis (Jack Howard, #1) by David Gibbins

A lost Nazi bunker in a forest in Germany contains a dreadful secret. But neither of them could have imagined what awaits them in the murky depths.

English Choose a language for shopping. If you like a book where something happens, you might reconsider. The plot, if you can believe it, is even more outrageous than the character descriptions. Here are the reasons why. Gibbons, an underwater archeologist and Cambridge University Gibbuns. Gibbins may know archaeology but he couldn’t tell a good story to save his life. A Novel Jack Howard. Tried reading a couple of Howard books and they’re not for me.

Way too many facts that, while interesting on their own, were just not necessary for good story telling. I finally finished this book. I want to start the Jack Howard series from the beginning and hibbins how he finds Atlantis to begin with!

There was just too much technical garbage that was never ending and every time you thought it was over you would get punched in the gut and the whole process would start over.

David Gibbins — FOUND! Lost city of Atlantis

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. Maybe someday I will attempt to finish it But generally his books are just a great deal of exposition.

While I don’t agree with the explanations of the Atlantix Flood the story made sense. It is very obvious that David Gibbins has done a lot of research before writing the book, whether he built on his knowledge from book 1 or not again, I haven’t read any of the previous books.

Review of David Gibbins’ “Atlantis”…

Refresh and try again. This book suffers from excessive rambling. If I wanted to read about all of those emotions, I’d buy a Harlequin. As with so many books in the genre, characterization is very thin, though perhaps more so in this book because the characters spend so much time serving as mouthpieces for the vast historical background. I do love wonderfully snide reviews. There’s a lot of characters knowing what each other 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.

David Gibbins i I found this book in The Friends of Library for sale section at my local library for 50 cents. It is a wasted effort in trying to read this book, unless you want to read about the past events of characters that you care little about.

To top that off, my daughter is an archeology major with a keen interest in underwater archeology so I figured she could enjoy it after me. Like I said, I can’t put it down. I really enjoy the archealogical mystery type of books.
