review 1: Really, I have to stop being swayed by the reviewers on Amazon and Goodreads who, for reasons I am genetically incapable of grasping, are convinced that Steve Alten can actually write. I love thrillers, supernatural tales, pseudo-archaeology, and the whole, bloated genre. But it’s one thing to write beach trash, which I happily consume and for whose writers I have a certain limited respect. It’s another thing to be a hack, and Steve Alten is a hack. I got about 50 pages into this one before literally tossing it on the floor. The problem isn’t even that the writing is all that bad on a sentence-by-sentence level. It’s that everything is just so silly. The premise, the characters, their way of expressing themselves, the adolescent comic-book melodrama. Silly. And not... more at all in the fun way.
review 2: The first one was great, the second one so-so, but this one... I don't know what to say about this one. I enjoy reading the book and there's no doubt that is better than the previous one, but still for the sake of the story I would have enden in the first one, with Michael giving his life to save the world from destruction, not trapped in Xibalba, not sons, not aliens, posthumans, black holes, time travelling, parallel dimensions... And now it seems there will be another one. less
