"The Viking Sands" has many of the elements of your typical blockbuster escapist adventure movie. It helped pass the time as an over the top read with just enough possible science in it to make it possibly plausible...and keep me from falling asleep.
The protagonist is not your usual altruistic adventure hero type and the travelogue elements of the book work well in keeping the reader interested and entertained (the author has obviously been around the block).
It was a fun read and I would definitely watch the movie if it ever makes it to an airline's small screen passenger pacification program.
