Wow !! I want to be an Adventurer
on January 21, 2018
I loved every page of this exciting book BECAUSE: I don't think Josh used a ghost writer, as the intonation and cadence of the speech sounds just like he does on his program, Destination Truth.
The next reason I devoured the book so avidly included the fact that Josh Gates is well-educated, and that is obvious in his writing style, grammar and vocabulary. It's VERY refreshing for me to have to stop mid-page in order to look up a word definition.
This book is loaded with historical facts plus anecdotes as well, and since Josh received his university degrees in archaeology and drama, these little tidbits of truth and cultural oral tradition round out this book with candid photos of the crew and their exotic locales.
I sincerely hope that the next 4 seasons of Destination Truth will give Josh Gates plenty of hair-raising unexplainable truths and worldwide adventure for The Next Book #2. I can't wait !!
PS: I bought this book by mistake, having thought it was "Free", under Kindle Unlimited... After reading a few chapters I simply Could Not stop reading to return it and get my money returned. Now i am glad that I decided to keep this funny, informative, exciting, kinda spooky, absolutely interesting, best book I've read in several months. (and I'm an habitual, voracious reader)🤓
