I really enjoyed this book! I suspect that Reilly is one of those authors that people will either really get into or really dislike. He has a unique style of writing that really appealed to me and drew me in.

If you like the Indiana Jones
movies, you will love this book.
A lot of action. I couldn't
put it down. I am at the third book in the serie now, and they
are all very good.

Adventurous thriller about finding the seven wonders of the ancient world and how their "capstones" or pedestals and ancient scrolls reveal an incantation that along with the capstone's placement, ultimately leads to power and domination. Along the lines of " Indiana Jones". Interesting characters and fast-paced action although slightly biased toward one nationality.

Agreed that it reads like an action movie -- specifically an Indiana Jones-style action movie. Fast-paced and never a dull moment, but if character development is part of what interests you about a story you won't find much of that here. Enjoy it for what it is.

Blind Date With A Book comment: "A book I would NEVER check out turned out to be a great date! Can't tell a book by it's cover!"

Reads like an action movie (I see Russel Crowe as the lead). Comparable to Dan Brown or David Gibbins, but faster than both.

Very entertaining book, definitely much better than what I expected given what I have read by Reilly before. Lots of interesting historical tidbits and I must say, the idea of Australia as the "most powerful nation on Earth" is definitely original

Great book!! If you like the way Dan Brownwrites Angels and Demons, then this series is for you!!

This is an Awesome Book. Great characters, great story. They carry on to the next 2 books in this series.
Anxiously waiting on the 4th etc...
You'll add Matthew Reilly to your "favorite authors" list for sure.
