Publisher's Summary

A thrill-seeking Harvard linguistics professor and an ultrasecret branch of the Catholic Church go head-to-head in a race to uncover the secrets of the lost city of Atlantis. The ruins of the technologically-advanced, eerily-enigmatic ancient civilization promise their discoverer fame, fortune, and power... but hold earth-shattering secrets about the origin of man.

While world-famous linguist and archaeologist, Thomas Lourds, is shooting a film that dramatizes his flamboyant life and scientific achievements, satellites spot impossibly ancient ruins along the Spanish coast. Lourds knows exactly what it means: the Lost Continent of Atlantis has been found. The race is on, and Lourds' challengers will do anything to get there first.

Whoever controls the Lost Continent will control the world.

    "Entertaining for most of the story."

    I enjoyed the build up to the climax, but the ending was disappointing and it failed to leave me with any desire to wonder what happens next.

    "Tiresome."

    The lead character is the most intelligent, charming, handsome man on the planet and every woman he meets swoons, but he is too focused on ancient languages to notice. Ugh.

    Story
    "why is everyone in the book Russian?"

    The book itself isn't bad, but the narrator can't seem to get an Italian accent separated from a Russian accent.

    Story
    "It was okay"

    The story itself is good. Not great. Wish there was more detail about Atlantis and not just the symbols. I didn't captivate my interest and had to force myself to focus primarily because it was slightly confusing and the narrators voice was a little too relaxed and really slow. I had to speed up the book to x1.5 speed. Let's hope the books that follow are better

    Story
    "The reader kills the book"
    Where does The Atlantis Code rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I didn't rank it, because I could not get past the reader. I just was so distracted by his voice, and voice attempts of accents. Terrible.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I didn't develop a favorite character, because I could not get past the reader. I just was so distracted by his voice, and voice attempts of accents. Terrible.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Erik Davies?

    Scott Brick. He is by far the absolute best in my nonprofessional opinion. I have intentionally gone out of my way to locate books he has read, regardless of the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I listen for about an hour in the morning and hour in the evening during my drives to work.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope this story could be redone by a different reader. I am sure the story is very well composed, however...I just can't digest another bite of it, with that reader.

    Story
    "Bela Lugosi"

    Can't believe I made it through the whole thing hoping for anything new or creative. Nothing. Zero. Amateurish. To make it worse the narrators accents were comical. The Italians and the Russians sounded like Bela Lugosi.

    Story
    "I really wanted to like this book."

    Sadly the story drags and is not engaging and unfortunately the narrator tries to do different accents and characters which detracts even further from the story. I struggled to finish.
