An exciting fast paced read with good character development to boot. While this has been compared to Da Vinci Code, I found the writing of Atlantis Code to be more mature and sophisticated. I devoured it in 2 sittings totalling about 6 hours. Recommended.

Fairly decently paced, but you can't help comparing it to the Da Vinci Code, without which this book would never have been published. The lead, an archaeologist-linguist, is a less interesting Robert Langdon who seems to be catnip to women for some inexplicable reason, and is pretty thoughtless in that regard. The book is helped somewhat by a good female lead, a Russian police detective, and a rather good villain, a Catholic cardinal.

Pretty good overall. Well written and entertaining. Not quite the same suspense level as Da Vinci Code (to which it compares itself) but still pretty entertaining. It was very slightly predictable but so many of these books can be. You have to surrender yourself to the story and just enjoy it. If you are interested in this genre, it's worth the read.
