I think it’s fair to expect something incredible from a book, which has 13.000 reviews on Amazon, is a bestseller and an upcoming movie. And when the expectations are high, the disappointment is also big. But you know what, I would think the same about this book even if it had zero reviews. It was messy. Disjointed. There were more than 150 chapters, very short chapters, like movie scenes with a lot of POVs. There was a bit of Indiana Jones, a bit of The Thing, a bit of Aliens vs. Predators, a bit of The Da Vinci Code, well, a bit of everything. This book was trying to be everything, and in my humble opinion, that was its biggest problem. I read more than the half; I hate leaving books unfinished, but after a while I had to let it go. We both were torturing each other. I am sure there are a lot of people who loved “The Atlantis Gene.” I’m just not among them.
I can’t recommend this book to awisls. It wasn’t well written.
