Beschreibung bei Amazon Charles Brokaw is the pseudonym for an anonymous college educator, academic, and author from the Midwest of the United States. While not much is known about the enigmatic writer, we know that he has a fascination with archeology, human accomplishment, and history, and has had a rich and varied life. He is best known for the Thomas Lourds series of novels that has four titles of which the first, The Atlantis Code is the most popular. He began researching the first novel when he saw an article about the ancient lost city of Atlantis in a scholarly journal. Given that the ruins were in a highly protected and popular national park, he thought their excavation was not even remotely possible. The realization got him thinking of what kind of treasures could be lying under the ruins.

Im wondering. All right, I give up..!! And it hurts, it Physically hurts after getting through this book. Why god why..?? Why did you let me read this..?? This is the second book in the series and it is worse than the 1st one bcz the first one sucked from the page 1, but this book didnt. It built me up and then pushed me down. But this book, is a prime example of why Dan Brown has made it so big in this genre.
This book has nothing to take you deep into the mythology. The secrets, the code breaking, the proverbial trail of breadcrumbs, the connection of all the ancient things to the sinister plot of present. Nothing of that sort. The most basic thing that would redeem this book, the code breaking by Lourds, is missing.
He just does. It is a story line that traces the stories of myth and the current world politics, a race against time. And somehow, all of these players in the hunt of the scroll know that Lourds, only Professor Lourds can find it. So they go after him and sic him after the scroll like a bloodhound on a trail.
Ok hold up, wait a minute, if the Brotherhood that is supposed to protect the scroll has not known about it for centuries, then why the hell have they not disbanded? Say they have too much love to be disbanded, tell me, why they need the scroll now..?? The professor is given an ancient manuscript that holds the location of the much sought scroll. The only problem is, the manuscript is in an ancient lost language that also happens to be protected by some sort of a cipher.
But hey, Lourds is the man, man. He breaks the code and that too on the run, all the while his life in danger. The secret brotherhood helps, it provides boarding and lodging to the professor. The bunch of thugs simply drop out of the race. Cz they could..!!
Now the scroll that they locate, is nothing but another clue to a few more locations and artefacts that once found, would aid in deciphering the real message apart from the footnote stating: The Devil himself has been reincarnated as a mortal. Fun, too much fun, I tell you. Then the part where the professor visits all the locations to get the artefacts is skipped by our beloved author, but never does he skip a carnal setting.
Cz priorities, Bitch…!! Finally, after all the toil, Lourds manages to locate everything of need to decode the message. He keeps at it for days. But nothing. But what he manages to do, is find chicks willing to sleep with him. Practically lining up and begging for it. Then all of sudden, the devil calls him up and beckons him. He be a smart mouth. He be pissing him off.
It is in a moment of heat, like lightening, his mind deciphers the final code, just like that and he manages to send the devil right back to where he came from, using the message that was on the scroll.
And the world was saved. Thank you professor. But not really, no. This book manages to contradict itself. The author has simply written a book but paid no mind to justifying it.
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. But from then on, it was all downhill and it never stopped. Highly disappointing read.
