dzvid I’m not sure if this book was a novel written in the margins of a boring history lecture or just a near plot-less way to show off historic research. After taking a PhD from Cambridge University he taught archaeology in Britain and abroad, and alst a world authority on ancient shipwrecks and sunken cities. This group poses absolutely no threat to anyone and their reason for existence really isn’t explained very well.
At least with DaVinci Code you get the final piece of the puzzle.
This is the story of one last Gospel, left behind in the age of the New Testament, in the greatest days of the Roman Empire, and of its extraordinary secret, one that has lain concealed for years.
Apr 21, Kati rated it liked it. Canadian-born underwater archaeologist and novelist. The design is based on blah blah, another There is a tried and true formula to these types of books: This was one of the aspects that made the ending of the novel incredibly weak, although Gibbins did avoid the complete cop-out which I expected at one point.

Books by David Gibbins. This is the story of. Overall it was good but not exceptional.
In Canadian-born underwater archaeologist and novelist. The author, himself a marine archaeologist, draws on a lot of his own experiences, so the scenes of discovery is made to seem very real. Later, after the Nazarene is crucified, Claudius becomes emperor. What if one of the Ancient World’s greatest libraries was buried in volcanic ash and then re-discovered two thousand years later?
Follow Jack Howard as he discovers the secret and must prevent others from doing the same I also liked that the ideas expressed here concerning Christianity are very similar to the beliefs that I davud. It lacks credibility when we are supposed to believe that organization has favid performed its job for years with fare more powerful opponents than Jack.
Ditto the fun fluff. I think the story line was pretty good, and it was nice to read an adventure story without a lot of cussing and sex. And were then forced to confront terrifying enemies determined to destroy you to ensure it goes no further? Not even the burial that had an unexploded WWII ordnance right by it, I was totally shocked it wasn’t demolished after our intrepid heroes found the site!

My Favourite Books: The Last Gospel, David Gibbins
All in all, a story line on christianity I didn’t mind reading. He currently divides his time between fieldwork, England and Gkspel. David Gibbins pulls no punches when it comes to the depth of his research in any of his books, but The Last Gospel is something else entirely: He currently divides his time between fieldwork, England and Canada.
OK, so with its carbonised centuries old bodies, secret tunnels, Vestal Virgins and a long lost document that not everyone is happy about being discovered this wasn’t completely without merit its just that the expected ‘thrills and spills’ were too few and far between to maintain my interest, the author having an awful tendency to never run with them. Crusader Gold was much better and I still want to get my hands on Atlantis but I don’t think I would recommend this Read full review.
