"There's more to the story of Atlantis than a lost continent-- there's also a centuries-old global conspiracy. author Thomas Greanias believes that it was the volcanic destruction of Thira-- modern-day Santorini-- that inspired the ancient Greek philosopher Plato to pen the original story of Atlantis nine hundred years later. However, Plato's fourth century B.C. account claimed that Atlantis sunk nine thousand years earlier. Taken literally-- and combined with recent revelations-- Plato's ancient clues suggest that Antarctica may, in fact, prove to be the site of the legendary Atlantis"--Page [339].

I read this book all the way through because I found the plot so unpredictably absurd, that I wanted to see where the author - in his terrible writing and mixed up storyline - was taking the reader. I found it more comedic than adventurous. What I thought was going to be an archaeological mystery and fantasy adventure...turned out to be a means of sharing a Christian message hidden in the plot. Apparently the Atlanteans were aliens who believed in Christ...who knew?
