Atlantis.Gibbins, David.tr. by Gerardo di Masso. Colombia/ U.S.: Planeta. 2007. 365p. ISBN 978-84-08-07221-8. pap. $19.95. FICTION ~ Marine archeologist Jack Howard may have found the key to uncovering Atlantis, the legendary sunken city purportedly built by a flourishing culture. A scrap of papyrus discovered in an Egyptian desert, which may contain a secondhand account of the lost city, sends Jack scrambling to assemble a team.... Once prepped and in position in the Aegean Sea, Jack and company find themselves caught up with Kazakhstan terrorists and a [global] fight over a missing Soviet nuclear submarine. It's thrilling stuff for sure....[and] Gibbons, an underwater archeologist and Cambridge University Ph.D., knows his science, [but] things don't pick up until the second half of the story, when the dive gives way to a more straightforward kidnapping plot. 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.

I borrowed this off my daughter.

It was really quite a page turner - a really interesting storyline, that was really original in parts, and really predictable in parts. I enjoyed it though, and it really does make you wonder all over again, about Atlantis. I could quite believe in the Atlantis of this book. I doubt I'd read it again, but I wouldn't rule out reading more by David Gibbins.
