High action, quick and witty dialogue and a reasonably smart storyline. Excitement pulsates from the very first page of this eagerly awaited follow-up to the international and New York Times bestseller The Atlantis Codethough it does somewhat fizzle out towards the end.
This book has better writing finesse, marginally, and for like halfway through the book, the story seemed to be building up to something of worth. Chief criticisms that have been leveled against The Lucifer Code are that it just has too many characters and an oversupply of red herrings.
I had just read the 7TH Scroll by Wilbur Smith, which i quite enjoyed and was hoping this might be in the same mould but Wilbur Smith is a far more superior writer This is a sort of Indiana Jones type of tale. I won’t say anything regarding the story but this is not your simple connect-the-dots mystery that can be linear and predictable.
I spent most of the book bored, wondering why I was continuing to read it, or just rolling my eyes. The book flags at the end, though, to the point where they skip over how much of what the docume “The Lucifer Code” was a fairly interesting book.

Two big revelations—that the artifact may be connected to Atlantis and that the legendary lost continent may be linked to a revisionist version of an Old Testament account—will get few readers’ pulses racing, especially since Brokaw relies more on shoot-outs and narrow escapes than plausible archeological details to carry his story along.

Apr 20, Matt rated it really liked it Shelves: From page one you are subjected to Lourds encounter with a young woman in the airport that seemed irrelevant to the mystery and adventure.
Thomas Lourdes, a dharles, maybe the world’s best linguist, is swept into the quest for the Scroll of Joy while in Istanbul. It is a story line that traces the stories of myth and the current world politics, a race against time.
He clearly knows and understands his audience, and does his utmost best to appeal to their yearning for adventure and eroticism, though the latter is kept within the bounds of decency at all times. May 15, Matthew Schneider rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Notify me of follow-up comments via e-mail. In some ways the book reads like most of it was done and it was too long and the all the hardcore editing was at the tail end of the book.
I like the action and history in it, but I felt that the storyline was a little far fetched and I am becoming not too fond of the main character. And then the ending comes and it’s sorta exciting again.
But this book, is a prime example of why Dan Brown has made it so big in this genre. Do you enjoy conspiracy theories that involve the end of the world that don’t make you roll your eyes? I liked most of the characters, and stories featuring the ultimate battle of good versus evil always excite me.
Jun 01, Tara rated it liked it Shelves: The only thing about the book that I was midly disappointed in was the last 3 pages or so.
Oh please spare me Poorly developed and ridiculous premise, unresolved storylines and clumsy gratuitous sex.
And the world was saved. It does not require much cjarles or problem solving but requires the reader to sit back and enjoy the ride. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. That said, it is the intricate detail in which Brokaw lays out the story, and the fast-paced nature of the overall plot, that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat from beginning to end.
I am loving it: The third quarter slowly got progressively worse, as though cofe author was himself getting tired of writing this particular book, or was writing to a very tight deadline.
Though, if that is the larger fault I can find in this book, I suppose I can swallow the pill and move forward. The author has obviously never spent time in any of the locations he attempts btokaw describe and stole a major breakthrough directly from Raiders of the Lost Ark.
