Format: Paperback
I was hooked from the beginning by this tale of Andrew Morgan, a wealthy oil executive who is either a major league sucker or a visionary. I'm a patient reader and sometimes will spend too much time "nibbling" on the bait presented by the author before I make the decision to bite or bolt. But I was caught up in this book from page uno and was not disappointed.
Morgan's relationship with Lisa, a Christian reporter, was both captivating and believable. The characters, good and bad, that surround them make for an exciting tale and fast paced read.
The Mayan Apocalypse was also a great introduction to all the hype and mystery surrounding 2012. I love when an author makes learning fun by overlaying a great story over well researched history.
If you're looking for a fairytale ending where everything is tied up in a neat little bow you'll be surprised. But Hitchcock and Gansky provide a great ending that makes you wonder--what will really happen just over two years from now.

Format: Paperback
With the year 2012 approaching the hype surrounding the Mayan prophecies surrounding the end of the world in December of that year is escalating. Despite being wealthy and intelligent, oil executive Andrew Morgan is drawn deeply into these prophecies of destruction following the loss of his family. Lisa Campbell on the other hand is a Christian reporter who remains skeptical of the theories at best.

Lisa's work to uncover the motivation of those funding the 2012 movement leads her into ongoing contact with Morgan, and despite their conflicting beliefs they are drawn into a caring relationship with one another.

Author Mark Hitchcock is the author of the non-fiction title 2012, the Bible, and the End of the World, and his extensive research into the subject forms the backbone of The Mayan Apocalypse. That functional backbone is however delivered in large chunks of background exposition rather than being smoothly spread out throughout the course of the novel. The 2012 details and `evidence' are then rather difficult to remember, being delivered mainly in a single chunk in the novel's early portions.

A sixteen-month gap also results in a loss of cohesion of the storyline around 2/3 of the way through. While this can be handled effectively it seems like major questions that were driving the story up until that point were just left behind and as a reader I had to wait for some time to find out what had happened regarding certain situations. . Some final events in the story also seemed somewhat `tagged on' rather than having inherent meaning in and of themselves.

Still, I found the romance between Lisa and Andrew to be sweet and appropriate. The first portions of the story were also exciting and filled with a certain amount of suspense.

What a fascinating and page turning novel. There was twists and turns that kept me engaged and the main characters Andrew and Lisa interacted well together. There was a chapter in the book where Lisa discusses the Mayan calender and their significance with her coworkers. The authors really did their homework and the book was very believable. What happens and will they survive? You have to read the book to find out. I have never read any of the other books by the authors but I bet they are just as good.

Format: Paperback
I just finished reading The Mayan Apocalypse by Mark Hitchcock and Alton Gansky. Andrew Morgan, mad at God when he loses his family in a plane crash, meets Lisa Campbell, a journalist who is researching Robert Quetzal and his take on the ancient Mayan predicitons.

Though Andrew, rich and powerful, clashes with Lisa, who is a Christian reporter, he feels drawn to her at the same time. They do NOT agree on what will happen on December 21, 2012.

Does the world end in 2012 - this is the book to read. Hitchcock and Gansky have done their homework resulting in a fast page-turner. How will it end? Can the rich and powerful escape? Read the book to find out. I loved the book and found it extremely interesting.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on September 10, 2010
Format: Paperback
Geologist Andrew Morgan seeks to understand life. He is an affluent man who has traveled the globe trying to find meaning beyond is that all there is having lost his loved ones; he holds God culpable for their deaths. So far, his quest has failed. Andrew is fascinated with the ancient Mayan prediction that the world ends in December 2012. He digs deeper into the prophecy and is stunned by the mathematical and astronomical affirmation of what he assumed was a superstitious omen by primitive people. However, in spite of his reluctant conversion that a pandemic tragedy from the skies is coming, he knows his quest for the meaning of life remains unanswered unless death is the only response.

Andrew meets Christian journalist Lisa Campbell as she also researches the Mayan calendar. As 2011 increasingly proves a deadly year with both natural and man-made disasters, she shares the Bible's last days with him. However, he rejects the Bible's Rapture and the Mayan Apocalypse as being the same empty mythos. Yet he and others consider hiding in a bunker as the Hammer of God threatens the earth with cosmic impact on eerily December 21 2012.

This is a terrific thriller with several major twists that enhance the belief that a potential pandemic disaster threatens the earth. The story line is action-packed and fast-paced with a strong cast including the two protagonists, a disbeliever, and several fascinating others. With the doomsday countdown plot hooking readers, fans will relish this exhilarating apocalypse now tale as the underlying premise is that for someone any day may prove to be his or her end of day.
