    1 thought on “Raising Atlantis”

    1. Raising Atlantis reads like a less articulate, not as interesting version of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code. Given that these two novels came out around the same time and focus on similar themes (uncovering the past's secrets to discover some type of treasure), there is a reason Dan Brown is a much more familiar name than Thomas Greanias. Don't get me wrong, the premise was very interesting; there was a lot of action and adventure, but I just didn't like it very much. For one, some parts of the novel [...]

    2. I don't even know where to start. When I first chose to read this book it was because I have always felt interested in the story of Atlantis. Since the story itself talks about a city that has supposedly vanished, your mind as a reader has to be open enough to accept things that you might find not completely possible to believe. At the beginning of the book I was quite excited, thinking it would be something more similar to that Indiana Jones Atlantis PC game than the book's actual development o [...]

    3. One of the most useless, pointless books I've read lately. This was an all plot book of conflict between artificial characters that may have come out of a poorly written sci-fi show. The surrounding scaffold structure for the book appear as if a assault had been launched by someone trying to merge Angels and Demons, all the pseudo-science literature and web links related to the Great Pyramid, and some of Immanuel Velikovsky's "Worlds in Collision" book.The last 100 pages only had action depicte [...]

    4. Raising Atlantis was a very fast paced adventure. It was full of action and mayhem. The story takes place over a period of a few days, and much happens during that time. The hero was flawed but likeable. I enjoyed the book and am looking forward to reading the sequel, Raising Atlantis. Doctor Conrad Yeats, who has lost all respect in the archaeology community, has been searching for a nebulous "Mother Culture" for years. When his adopted father has him brought to Antartica where strange things a [...]

    5. This book has done a good job of taking several tried and true ingredients and mixing them together in a different way. Greanias has mixed Antarctica with ancient history, thrown in a dash of religion, and added a healthy dose of scientific conjecture on the existence of Atlantis, along with the theory of ancients coming from space. What we get is a surprisingly down-to-earth adventure tale combining military plots and Biblical history with Greanias’s vision of Atlantis.Former nun Serena Sergh [...]

    6. I read this book in less than 20 hours. It is fast-paced, interesting, and full of science and religion. In a way, it's a less extreme version of Dan Brown's novels.We are in what the mythology of the Aztecs and Mayans believe to be the Fifth Sun.Antarctica is the possible place of Atlantisor something even bigger. The pyramid that is found there is unlike anything on Earth.The United States is breaking treaty and performing what the world believes to be nuclear testing on the southern capbut it [...]

    7. Thomas Greanias- Raising Atlantis (Pocket Star Books 2005) 4 StarsAn earthquake rocks Antarctica and now a team of scientists has discovered something older than the planet earth. Dr. Conrad Yeats has been brought to Antarctica by his father for his archaeological knowledge. Meanwhile Dr. Serena Serghetti has been sent by Rome to find out what is going on there. It is a race against time to figure out what is happening to the planet before it is too late.I really enjoyed this book. It was differ [...]

    8. I love a good adventure tale but why does it seem all the genre's writers fall for the same ridiculous tropes. Why do the villains have to be so irrational and over the top? There are so many cliches here. But while those can be ignored for the sake of getting to the point of the tale, it's harder to ignore that there are no likeable characters. They are all so focused on what they want to the exclusion of all else that they all seem incapable of having believable empathy for anyone else. Even S [...]

    9. This book had a really nice theme and idea which i really liked because it was sci-fiction but had the ancient Egyptian world twist with life beyond human knowledge that was being explored first time. This new world being found out in the world's only place that no dumb person would want to live in which was Antarctica the coldest place on earth full of snow and ice and blizzards. I like how the main character went against his own father over some scientific theory he made up in their journey to [...]

    10. In Thomas Greanias's Raising Atlantis, the first installment in the Conrad Yeats Adventure thriller series, this best-selling e-book and print book series would take you on an adventure of your own. For Conrad, he was an archaeologist who searched for the world's mysteries and debunked their myths. But he came across an ice cold stone treasure in Antartica, where the legendary city of Atlantis have been hidden and buried for thousands of years. He wasn't alone, when Sister Serena Sereghetti and [...]

    11. From the book (p 339): "A thought-provoking blend of mythology and religion, archaeology and science, Raising Atlantis is a work of fiction -- but many of its reveations are based upon facts. The National Science Foundation has acknowledged that several plot points are indeed true." The end of Raising Atlantis leaves the reader wanting more for the two main characters, Conrad Yeats and Sister Serghetti. Luckily, the author has written follow-up stories for all of us to hungrily consume.

    12. *sigh* Why do I keep reading action/adventure novels? Because I'm searching for the unicorn. If it wasn't rare, I would have found it already.

    13. I started this with a certain amount of excitement because I love stories that involve finding out stuff about Antarctica. Other themes of interest quickly came to the surface. At the same time, I realized that this book was going to be VERY short on actual science and history and VERY long on crappy relationship nonsense between totally idiotic stock characters. This might have been slightly mitigated if the author possessed any skill at ALL at writing descriptions of things or even plausible a [...]

    14. Raising Atlantis is part of a category of fiction that has been slowly growing over the last decade; books that were self-published as an ebook and sold well enough to be snapped up by a traditional publisher.This book shows its self-publishing roots. The story is a little scattered, with characters turning up out of nowhere with assumed history, but never actually established. Both the hero and the heroine tend to change characterization without warning, and in the end, I found both of them pre [...]

    15. Voor een boek wat je wilt lokken door avontuur en mysterie is er veel te weinig avontuur en mysterie. Alles is te vanzelfsprekend voor de personages, ze zijn niet tot nauwelijks verwonderd over de dingen die gebeuren en die ze zien.Komen ze een ruimte in van vele duizenden jaren oud. Wordt er gezegd 'this is clearly []'Clearly.Natuurlijk.En ze hebben natuurlijk altijd gelijk. Hun eerste gok is altijd perfect. Waar ze ook zijn, wat ze ook doen; perfectie.De onderlinge relaties vind ik ook maar sl [...]

    16. Once again, a book about the rediscovery of an ancient civilization whose central idea is incredible, and yet Thomas Greanias introduces archaeological fact and current events to create the plausibility of a fantastic plot. Unfortunately, the story contains a few of the stereotypical elements found in your everyday Atlantis story: Armageddon, the military, etc etc. He did a good job of throwing in a few significant plot twists that I did NOT see coming. All in all, it was a good (and relatively [...]

    17. This book was wow bad. It was all over the place, he loves his dad, he hates his dad, he loves his dad heyou get the picture. Same thing with her. When I read the scene where Conrad refers to the female as "baby" I knew that this was going to be a rough ride.

    18. Very disappointing as there is much too much religion. No more Conrad Yeats/Thomas Greanias for me. 2 of 10 stars

    19. Terrible, the idea is good but the characters are ridiculously and annoyingly perfect and the development of the story equally ridiculous.

    20. Deep beneath the Antarctic ice an ancient pyramid has been found proving that the continent is Atlantis. An archaeologist has been summoned by his father, a US air force general, to help uncover the mystery. A conservationist and former nun, has also been sent by the Vatican to investigate. In violation of Antarctic treaties, UN inspectors from Russia turn up and then some from the Middle East. The story is a fast paced thriller which does not let up until the end. It is at times a chaotic mix w [...]

    21. As a fast moving action/adventure tale this book worked well for me. Maybe, I'm not discerning enough, but when I put this novel down, I couldn't wait to pick it up and read again. For me that's at least three and a half stars. So I gave it the benefit and four. Yes, there were problems, first the chemistry between our two main characters was a bit lacking. The male lead is portrayed as a self-serving, narcissist. His actions and thoughts we are privy to don't convince. Is that's the authors int [...]

    22. A very good and interesting read with plenty of action. Thomas's book reminded me a lot about Clive Cussler's books with Dirk Pitt. The last 20% or so of the book didn't keep my interest as much as the rest of the book.Anyone interested in civilizations or theories there of before the Egyptians will find extra interest in this work.

    23. Started out OK but then got silly.The end had a section on "real" things in the book but was so short on science it was really pathetic, like people falling 50 feet out of a helicopter and surviving without a break. Or a "space ship" being beyond the orbit of Pluto in 24 hours.Lastly, pushing the religious agenda at the end was a bit much

    24. It ain't Shakespeare, but if you happen to be a Classics nerd, I definitely recommend this: post-World War II hunt for a lost substance that the Minoans found on a meteor, which is the basis of Homer's story of Achilles' shield. My favorite scene (somewhat spoiler-ish, so I'll hide it), which, if you're a Classicist, should help you understand what the attraction of this book is:

    25. 3.5/5 stars I liked it, it was very fast paced and kept my attention the whole time. Did it blow my mind? No not necessarily, but it was well written with compelling characters and a complete plot. An entertaining read.

    26. I really enjoyed this novel. I have picked up another one by the same author now. I just need to find time to read it! The story and plot where well developed and I really liked that I wasn’t able to tell where the story was going. I love it when the author surprises me. :)
