A vast canvas of swirling style and perspicacious pondering, HUNGER FOR ATLANTIS is as the author describes, a “Work of Art”, that does evoke the grand musings present in the deeply steeped social-philosophical seminal works of Ayn Rand.

As a reader of book reviews, I have never been enamored of the synopsis, having always preferred the unveiling mental vistas as I read, brave new worlds of thought with as few landmarks as possible. So I shan't contravene my own principles and provide one here. Nevertheless, I will treat in brief the grand scope of HUNGER FOR ATLANTIS.

The most remarkable aspect is an interesting, even jolting, dichotomy of style. The bulk of the narrative is written in a staccato fashion, short, simple sentences, which one may liken to a painting's background fleshed out in widely spaced pointillism, that in turn contrasts with engagingly written character dialogue, sweeping strokes of foreground color and meaning. Yet at critical junctures, swaths of philosophically pregnant character interactions propel the plot, usually heavily interspersed with character monologues (a technique that Ayn Rand was particularly fond of). Consistently paced, I felt compelled by these interactions to continue, to see where the author was going, to explore resolutions and their implications, often at odds with my own conceptualizations and metaphysical ruminations. However, it is the consideration of all possible answers that gives growth to understanding, not the static confirmations of what one presupposes.

HUNGER FOR ATLANTIS is not a casual work, not easily accessible by the dragonfly perusal of common literature, but an erudite juxtaposition of bold textures and earnest examinations of social, moral, civic, and developmental foundations.

Whatever the number of stars, it seems that everybody finds this book interesting. I believe it needs a second edition, not only for editing but because there are some parts that need more work. It is more an essay than a novel, but that is fine. A good part of the book is about the education system. I guess most people would agree the schools as we know them don't work the way they should. But why the "Government " and not the Religious private schools? I couldn't figure that out, as the author wants "rationality". The book seems to promote a system very close to the early Montessori (not the one practiced today). I feel the thesis is impoverished by the idea that the "good guys" in the book have no education and all the "bad guys" are well educated. Life is not that simple. The structure of the book is not strict enough, for instance about 10% of the book are about the making of a sociopath, a bully. I think that it is how the book should start: it illuminates the intent.
There are some mistakes: "principles inhibit the imagination" is not always true, for instance in music. "Erudite snobs can speak Latin"? In my generation, everybody learned Latin (by the way one of the Latin quotes is not Latin at all). "The mind is an empty vessel": that is not true, look at the book called "The blank slate"...it is not what the author meant anyway.
This just to say: this is an ambitious work that deserves good grammar, good plan, and just a bit of a serious revision.

According to the author, ‘Hunger for Atlantis’ ‘is a battle for the values that made America great. It is the conflict of opposites, of authority against individualism, of irrationality against reason, and of force against freedom’.

It’s good to have a summary of what the author has set out to do in the 600+ pages of this novel, even though the repetition of the values and the continuing battles will be etched into a reader’s mind by the end of the novel.

‘Hunger for Atlantis’ presents a fairly straightforward battle between the good guys and the bad guys in a style and form which will be familiar to those of us who’ve read Ayn Rand’s fiction. The bad guys oppose individuality, encourage collective weakness and cannot grasp any concept of singularity, while the good guys encourage individual effort, logic and reason. There seem to be many more bad guys than good guys. And caught between the two, our wealthy protagonist, Stanzie Brock, is undecided.

‘She could not decide which direction she should take.’

Will a Montessori style of education, and increased availability of wireless electricity solve all of the problems that haunt America (and presumably the rest of the wold)? Are those who resist the teaching philosophy of ‘the School for Self-Esteem’ misguided? Is the Academy being wrongfully blamed for certain events? And why, if wireless electricity is such a perfect answer to energy supply problems is it being resisted?

‘Industries would go bankrupt overnight.’

I found some passages of this novel entertaining, but for me the flow of the narrative was disrupted by some quite idiosyncratic writing such as: ‘He expectorated in an official manner, coughing mildly and gaining their attention.
