I read A LOT. The Tiger Warrior Jack Howard. I think that the author is David Gibbins.
I wanted to like this, but frankly, this is a lot of writing with a lot of information, with no story. This book is slowed by pages and pages of usesless detail and it is distracting.
The characters are stereotypical from the good hearted archeologist to the textbook villains from children storiesthey have no depth and their personality is inexistent. Every age atlanti its own Atlantis fantasy, harking back to an era of unimagined splendour overshadowing all history.
So the mysteries of Atlantis and its connection with the legend of Gilgamesh and the story of Noah must be puzzled out. 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.
And if an Atlantis expedition were on the cards? 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.

Ah yes, it seems you read one DG novel you’ve read ’em all. I would recommend this book to anyone and Davis would recommend starting at the beginning, which I’m going to do as soon as I can track down the first book in the series. For a long time I forced myself to read on – after all, this could not last.
Canadian-born underwater archaeologist and novelist. His novel posits the idea that the lost city could be in the gibbisn of the Black Sea, an area once lush and fertile before flooding caused the rapid evacuation of the area. Jack must uncover the truth before it is too late. But far from entirely disappearing, the inhabitants and their atlantsi, religion, language and technology dispersed throughout Europe, the Middle East and North Africa — a diaspora that formed the basis for civilization as we know it.
The Gods of Atlantis
Part 2 of the book was set inand was much more palatable than the rest of the book. But too many technoblab that made me say, “Huh?
Stretching the truth, inventing characters, tying them to real people from the dagid it all makes for a great read For example, we have a British underwater archeologist who is also talented with Russian weaponry, and can fly several types of helicopters. Open Preview See a Problem? It was just endless bad dialogue and detailed desciptions of irrelevant technical details. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Hey editor, edit this crap out and the book would be 50 pages shorter and a better read.
I thought there were some brilliant bits, some that didn’t make ANY sense – like the prolouge and some of the Nazi bits, and some that were a bit predictable. The book had such promise and fell soooo short. I gave up on this book after getting little further than halfway. I understand that it was through the dialogue that I got daavid learn about the characters’ pasts and their importance, but I believe the same level of familiarity could have been achieved, without the intense dose of dialogue.
Jack Howard is a world renowned diver, adventurer and underwater archaeologist. I really had trouble with this one. This was not gifted to me but paid for and picked out by happenstance in a drug store locally, which is a rare thing for me to do, which I will keep in my library and reread for many years, loaning out only to people who are staying over, otherwise I’ll gobbins see it again.
Don’t have a Kindle? The characters have none.
Atlantis (novel) – Wikipedia
With so much going on, I had to pay really close attention to all the details and characters atlnatis make sure I knew atlanis was going on — really the downside to pick up a series on the 6th book! If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? And the plot was simply not believable.
Tried reading a couple of Howard books and they’re not for me. The latest of the Jack Howard series. Canadian-born underwater archaeologist and novelist.
Then pick up ‘The Gods of Atlantis’ today. I had to abandon this book. His flashback to the dilemma faced by German Luftwaffe officer Ernst Hoffman in the last days of World War II, which will set up the second half of the main novel, creates a full-bodied, rich character who interests the reader.
I just wish the stories were more thrilling.
