4.0 out of 5 stars You get more than your money's worth with this one..., May 11, 2001
This review is from: Domain (Hardcover)
Don't miss the adventure. This story is a creative, high speed thriller that answers every question it raises in the minds of the reader. I only gave it four stars because after all the hair raising narrow escapes, interesting characters and fascinating interwoven facts throughout the book, the ending was just a bit too typical. The ending wasn't bad though and does a good job at creating interests in the sequel however, the first 90% of the book is just so outstanding that perhaps I was disappointed because I was just sorry to see the story end at all. The book has no slow parts and Steve Alten's most notable talent for me was that he was able to do so many things so well. Character types and their development was just enough to satisfy, the archeology parts were all factual thus historically informative, the premise for the story line was unique and plausible and the action was non-stop. This is a thrilling read and has motivated me to read Steve's other two books: "Meg" & "The Trench". I would also recommend reading Graham Hancock's "Fingerprints of the Gods" which was used by Mr. Alten in researching for "Domain". It presents many interesting facts on how ancient ruins demonstrate that either there was an amazing knowledge of advanced astronomy developed by or handed down to history's lost civilizations. It is great supplemental reading to "Domain".
