I'm glad I did. This is how these two guys are supposed to write!! Aug 25, Marialyce rated it it was ok. This book might have been a three star novel, but once you threw in the Cyclops well that kind of ended it for me.

Don't get me wrong, I am a stickler for a good yarn with fantasy and history thrown in on the side, but for some reason the last quarter of the book just did not gel.

It was ok for some mindless fluff to while away a summer's day. Jun 06, Dagny rated it really liked it Shelves: After my dissatisfaction with the second book in this series, I was thrilled that this turned out to be a good read.

Aug 03, Kate Ayers rated it liked it. Well, the half star rating might come in handy here, although I probably would go down instead of up.

Admittedly, though, it certainly was action filled. The idea of a treasure hunt was so irresistible, it drew me in. The treasure was an intriguing one, too, thankfully not just another billion dollars.

But the implausibility of their quest and what they find Still, it's an entertaining read. Aug 22, Kay rated it it was ok. This is the first book I've read where I did not like any of the main characters.

A book is only enjoyable when you can connect to its characters and this was not the case with The Lost Island. Aug 24, Toby Tate rated it it was amazing.

Dec 23, Steven rated it really liked it Shelves: Way better than the other two Gideon Crew books! Sets up book four really well and kinda hints it might be the last.

Aug 19, Wdmoor rated it it was ok Shelves: This book will make you feel stupid. It seriously needed a good editor to shake it up and slap some sense into it.

Too bad it didn't get one. If you're old enough you'll remember the weekly Saturday matinee serials with their crazy cliffhanger endings. You'd always feel a little cheated the next week how easily the hero or heroine overcame whatever peril was placed in their paths, but then forget about it as the next cliffhanger ending grabbed your attention.

This book was one whole l This book will make you feel stupid. This book was one whole lousy cliffhanger ending after the other.

At one point the hero and heroine are clasping each other on the precipice of a cliff, thousands of feet above the ocean with no way down as fire and explosions swirl around them The authors play too fast and loose with the readers of The Lost Island.

There is something slapdash and hurried about the book and it left this reader grouchy as hell. And to make things worse, the freaking book ended on a cliffhanger ending!

Except I don't give a flip about the next Gideon Crew book. Jan 14, Mark rated it really liked it Recommends it for: The Gideon Crewe series seems to be far more tailored for the cinema, as long as Tom Cruise does not spoil the fun.

And it all delivers an adventure novel that fires on all fronts and manages to entertain in a casual way. It does handle Homers Odyssey in a modern way that does not make it offensive, As before the Crewe series do deliver fun adventerous novels that seem to be written for a cinema release.

For me it lacks the depth of their other work but they should be allowed to have some fun too. And honestly I will watch out for the next installment with pleasure.

Apr 23, Emily rated it liked it. This book is by far my favorite of the Gideon Crew series. I was so happy when I got an advance copy from my local bookstore.

I found this book a quick but enjoyable read which I had difficulty in putting down. The plot remained interesting and was difficult to predict.

I see this series becoming a new favorite for adventure loving readers. Oct 27, Lisa rated it it was ok Shelves: I'm afraid I have to agree with all the other negative reviewers out there.

I mean, where to start with this book? With the hero who doesn't drive the plot and just goes along with things, even when they make no sense?

With the ridiculous premise? With the surprisingly poor writing? With the rehashing of Preston and Child's personal cliches?

It's hard to find a single part of this book that wasn't screwed up. I read the first Gideon Crew book a long time ago and have forgotten most of it, and haven't read the second at all so I was confused by a lot of things in the beginning.

We learn from the back of the book that Gideon has a terminal condition but we don't find out what it is until a third of the way into the book.

And he's taking orders from a guy named Glinn in an apparently long-standing relationship where Gideon does illegal things for Glinn without knowing why.

None of this was explained so I was kind of lost at the start. Once Gideon started working on stealing a page from the Book of Kells things picked up a bit, but even that was mishandled.

We spend the whole theft in the perspective of a random woman who is given a rather extensive backstory but is totally irrelevant to the book and never appears again.

And Gideon's solution to stealing the page, while clever, would have completely destroyed it. So the next day when Glinn's people destroy the priceless page in order to reveal the map underneath, Gideon's outrage seems pretty hypocritical.

Unfortunately, things go downhill from there. To start, the treasure map allegedly leads to a mystical plant call "the lotus" that can heal grievous injuries and even birth defects.

The search for this plant is pitched to Gideon by Glinn as being this fantastic, altruistic thing. The "client" who was very obviously Glinn himself but our supposedly super-smart hero never figured it out until it was revealed at the climax promises that the plant will be cultivated and made into a drug that will be freely given to the people, not priced so high it can only be afforded by the ultra-wealthy.

And Gideon never stops to give this notion even a moment's thought. You're going to give a drug to the entire world that will basically make everyone immortal?

Does anyone else see a slight problem with this? There's just no way this could ever be a good thing in reality. People NEED to die, or the earth would be overrun in just a few years.

But neither Gideon nor anyone else in book ever even considers this angle. The whole time, the quest to bring this drug to the populous is touted as being the "right" thing to do.

And that's just the first of many things Gideon fails to think about or question in this long book. As soon as the woman, Amy, is introduced, Gideon immediately becomes a useless Beta who just goes along to get along.

Amy dictates absolutely everything they do from that point on. Seriously, this happens like 8 times. A strange boat hails them and Amy invites the people on board, insisting that it's the most prudent thing to do, and Gideon lets her have her way.

The people are sketchy as hell when they come on board and Gideon wants to pull up anchor and leave but Amy dictates that they stay, insisting that their boat will be able to outrun the other one if something bad should happen.

Guess what, it can't. The other people come back in the night and hold them hostage. Gideon has to figure a way out and they barely get away with their lives.

Their boat is damaged and Gideon wants to call Glinn but Amy refuses, insisting that they can easily continue with the mission even with their damaged engine and a hurricane looming and the pirates still out there stalking them They head for the next landmark on the map, and have to fight big time to keep the boat from foundering in the hurricane-tossed seas.

Then the damaged engines cut out and they almost capsize. Emergency repairs have to be made and they barely survive. Once again, Gideon wants to call Glinn but Amy insists they keep going They continue on to the landmark, knowing full well that the pirates will be there waiting for them, but Amy insists that they'll be able to outsmart the pirates by using the radar.

Guess what, they can't. The pirates come after them and in the ensuing battle both boats sink and Gideon and Amy spend an agonizing day and night in a sea that's being ripped apart by a hurricane.

Gideon is hallucinating badly from dehydration and swallowing sea water and when he finally washes up on an island shore, he can't even stand long enough to search for Amy.

Eventually she finds him and when she gets him back to her little camp we see that she has already laid out all the supplies and started a fire and lots of other things that must have taken quite a while to accomplish.

She did this BEFORE she went looking for him, even though they only got separated a little ways off shore so she must have known he wasn't far off.

Here again, Gideon wants to call for help but Amy insists they not And she won't even tell him WHY she's insisting. She just says vague things, like that he'll just have to trust her.

He doesn't KNOW her! She's been secretive, bossy and aloof the whole time they've been together and virtually every one of her decisions has gotten them in mortal peril!

This is just plain old bad writing. Not only is Gideon never given an adequate reason for Amy's insistence that they keep going, the reader is never given one either.

There's no real justification for her determination. SHE'S not dying of some terminal condition like Gideon is. She doesn't have a sick child back home who needs the medicine or anything like that.

It just doesn't make sense for her to continue to go on when with one quick phone call, Glinn could have them outfitted with a new yacht and equipment in no time.

And following that, since there's no good reason for her behavior, there's REALLY no good reason for Gideon to keep agreeing to follow her.

It's hard to get invested in a story when the main characters' actions make no sense. Not to mention that it made Gideon seem like a pansy for constantly giving in to her.

The real reason for Amy's insistence that they go on is because Preston and Child needed them to stay alone and on the quest in order to keep the plot going.

Any time things are blatantly happening just to keep the plot going, you know you've got a badly written story. And this happens over and over. Later on, when they meet the natives and concoct a plan that involves one of them eating a flower that they think is the lotus in order to trick the natives into revealing the source, Amy says that she'll only agree to the plan if SHE'S the one to take the lotus.

Once again, she won't give any justification for this and it makes no sense in the grand scheme of things. Gideon is the one who's dying, so it makes the most sense for him to take it.

If it turns out to be this miracle cure then he'll be saved. If it turns out to be poison then, well, he only had a few more months to live anyway.

But, once again, Gideon just gives into her on this without even putting up a fight. A short while later, they end up on the final island and Amy is hurt and sick with infection from her wound.

Gideon spends harrowing hours climbing up and down a sheer rock face and constructing vine ropes and slings in order to get Amy to safety.

This is about the fifth or sixth time they've been in life-and-death danger since the first time Amy insisted they not call Glinn for help. And yet, once again, when Gideon suggest they call, she refuses.

She literally can't stand up, and Gideon nearly died saving her, but she's still being stubborn. Gideon finally grows a pair and calls anyway but then, despite her making her position on this matter VERY clear, he still hands her the phone when she asks for it and she promptly throws it off a cliff.

It all came together to make Gideon seem very stupid and weak and the book very poorly written. We're never given an adequate justification for Amy's determination to continue.

She just talks about wanting to finish the mission, rather than call for help and most likely be left out of any repeat attempts.

That's not a strong enough reason for me to believe in her actions. She doesn't have anything personally at stake here, so risking both their lives over and over just seems unbelievable and selfish if her only motivation is to be able to put a check mark in the "completed mission" box.

The rest of the book is a complete rehash of the last act in Still Life With Crows. Giant lumbering creature that's barely human, can only speak a few broken words, is preternaturally strong and develops a crush on the girl character because she says the word "friend"?

Lots of running around in dark caves for the final confrontation? You seriously need to seek professional help because that is NOT normal!!!

And Gideon's behavior was just as incomprehensible and lame here as it was in the whole rest of the book. His devotion to Amy and total blindness to her behavior was just bonkers.

She's been consistently acting stubborn and irrational the whole book, and yet he's surprised every time she does something crazy.

And then he gives up his chance to make it to safety in order to go back and "rescue" her. I didn't see their relationship as being in a place where this would make sense.

They kissed once, and even that felt like it was coming out of nowhere because there was absolutely no chemistry between them the whole story.

And yet he's ready to die for her? Nope, don't see it. And Amy's devotion to the cyclops was bizarre too. Yes, I get it, he's the last of his kind and should be left alone to live in peace.

That's a wonderful fairy tale story for her to believe in. But here in reality, the truth is that the only way for him to be left alone is if everyone walks away and pretends they never discovered the island.

And to do that, they'd have to abandon forever the quest for this life-saving medicine. A Glinn would never allow that, B what about all the people in the world that this medicine was supposed to help?

I've already said that this idea is BS, but since everyone in the book insists it's the right thing, then Amy should recognize that abandoning the quest for the lotus isn't an option.

Is she really saying that it's better for the 7 billion people on the planet to go on dying of diseases that the lotus could cure, just so that the cyclops can continue to live his lonely, dangerous existence on the island, instead of in the nature preserve Glinn is suggesting?

A creature that by all rights should have died centuries ago but has been granted abnormally long life because of the lotus? And C Glinn is right that the Nicaraguan and Honduran governments will be there in a flash to find out what the Americans are doing.

And once they realize the goldmine the lotus represents, they'll lock it down and sell it for as much money as they can get. And they'll either kill the cyclops or put him in a zoo that will probably be a lot less comfortable than the nature preserve Glinn has in mind.

So any way you look at this, Glinn's idea is not only the best option, it's the only option. Incidentally, Gideon once again showed himself to be a total waste of space in this part by not taking a decisive stance one way or the other.

He sort of vaguely felt that it was bad to cage the cyclops but also kind of vaguely got why it was necessary but he didn't SAY or DO anything.

He didn't talk to Glinn and try to convince him to let the cyclops go and he didn't talk to Amy and try to get her to see reason. He just stood there letting everyone else decide things for him.

And they'll either kill the cyclops or put him in a zoo that will probably be a lot less comfortable than the nature preserve Glinn has in mind.

So any way you look at this, Glinn's idea is not only the best option, it's the only option. Incidentally, Gideon once again showed himself to be a total waste of space in this part by not taking a decisive stance one way or the other.

He sort of vaguely felt that it was bad to cage the cyclops but also kind of vaguely got why it was necessary but he didn't SAY or DO anything.

He didn't talk to Glinn and try to convince him to let the cyclops go and he didn't talk to Amy and try to get her to see reason.

He just stood there letting everyone else decide things for him. What a terrible hero. But anyway, Amy is so insane that she ignores all of this logical information and sticks with the "he must be set free!!!

So she lets the cyclops out and then stands by as he murders dozens of nameless red shirts who were just following orders and probably all had loving families back home.

She also kept shouting about how the cyclops had saved Gideon's life, conveniently omitting the fact that he'd been the one to injure Gideon in the first place.

Amy also conveniently fails to recognize that all of this is HER fault. That if she hadn't been so hell-bent on going forward, the island, cyclops and lotus would never have been found and he could have gone on living his peaceful, idyllic life.

The ending was lame because Gideon was just as useless there as he'd been everywhere else. He stupidly thinks he can reason with the cyclops, even though the creature has never liked Gideon to begin with and had just tried to kill Gideon, AGAIN, because he walked in on Gideon and Amy kissing and was jealous.

And directly after that the creature had been attacked by Glinn and all his men so he was like a bear with a wounded paw.

But noooo, our allegedly genius level physicist hero who's skilled in social engineering thinks he can talk sense to the creature AND get it to act as a truffle sniffing pig for them to find more lotus.

That's totally going to happen. And it was super hypocritical of Gideon to think he could predict how the creature would behave just based on his intuition and social engineering skills, and then in the epilogue of the book totally malign Glinn for having the audacity to think HE could predict events using his computer simulation software.

Gideon went on and on about what an arrogant prick Glinn was for not respecting the X factor of circumstance and human unpredictability What a pompous douchebag.

So Gideon goes and hides in a cave for a few hours waiting for the creature to get finished grisily murdering all of Glinn's men and blowing up the camp, setting fire to the whole island.

Once all the exciting stuff is done happening elsewhere, the creature finally comes to where Gideon is hiding. Amy is there too and tells Gideon that he should run because the creature is totally out of control and will kill him.

And, sure enough the second Gideon reveals himself, the creature attacks. Gideon had his rifle at-the-ready expressly for the purpose of shooting the cyclops if he was beyond reason Because he's a useless weakling hero.

Instead they have the requisite chase through the dark caves that Preston and Child include in every single book and at the end the cyclops has Gideon dead-to-rights when he just decides to pack in it and commits suicide instead.

Gideon didn't do a single thing to bring about the conclusion of the situation. The bit where Amy is ready to kill herself like the cyclops didn't move me at all.

Her actions the whole book hadn't made any sense and I didn't understand her desire to die in this moment, nor did I care. Gideon's cliched "I'm dying and would love to have more time and you're ready to throw yours away" speech didn't interest me either.

It was totally unoriginal and I didn't see why he cared whether Amy lived or died because there'd been no chemistry between them the whole book.

Plus all the time he spent talking her off the ledge made it so that the fire closed in on them and cutoff any attempt at escape. Great job Gideon, you stopped her from jumping to her death so she can burn alive with you instead.

But Glinn rescues them by dropping a rope ladder from a helicopter in the nick of time. Incidentally, I never understood why Glinn cared so much about Gideon.

Maybe this was something the previous books established, but nothing Gideon did in this book showed him as being the least bit competent.

So why a smart, wealthy, driven man like Glinn thought the sun rose and set with him was beyond me. Gideon was a complete failure as the hero, Amy was annoying, bossy, aloof and just plain nuts.

Glinn acted like a jerk when a softer approach would have gotten him better results. The plot was a travesty of contrivance and lunacy, and the ending was just another stamping out of Preston and Child's usual cliches.

Don't bother with this one. Jan 24, Monnie rated it really liked it. There's no shortage of action in this, the third in the series featuring Dr.

Gideon Crew - a thief turned scientist with a terminal illness that could take his life at any given moment. As one might expect, that means he's got nothing much to lose, so he's willing to go where no man has gone before.

And man, he does exactly that. I enjoyed it thoroughly - in some ways even more than the first two - but I warn that you'll need more than a modicum of creative imagination to get through it; some par There's no shortage of action in this, the third in the series featuring Dr.

I enjoyed it thoroughly - in some ways even more than the first two - but I warn that you'll need more than a modicum of creative imagination to get through it; some parts make that most parts cross over to the realm of fantasy.

Still, it's fun, moves along quickly and, all in all, didn't dampen my enthusiasm for the series in the slightest.

This one begins as Gideon is brought in to steal a page from the Book of Kells, which is on display in New York City under seemingly impenetrable security.

Of course, he pulls it off - only to deliver it to his "boss," the invalid Eli Glinn, who promptly dunks it in something to remove the text and drawings to reveal an ancient treasure map.

But all that glitters isn't gold; rather, it's a long-hidden secret that could change the course of both Gideon and Glinn.

Together with a young, beautiful woman named Amy with whom he was ordered to partner up , he sets off on a journey that traces those of ancient Greeks and takes them to never-before-seen territory.

There, they discover - well, you'll just have to read the book to find out what - but suffice it to say the adventure nearly costs them their lives.

I wasn't sure whether a fourth book will be forthcoming, but after finishing this one, it's pretty clear there's one in the works.

Count me among those on the waiting list! Sep 09, Jane rated it it was ok Shelves: I really liked the first two books in this series.

This one, however, leaves me certain that I won't read any more. The story started off ok but immediately hit a snag in one of the major characterizations.

When a recurrent character acts in a way that isn't consistent with previous behavior, there needs to be a logical reason.

By the end of the book, I was so angry with the illogical actions of Glinn, who is supposed to be an intelligent and reasonably good guy, that I wanted him torn from limb I really liked the first two books in this series.

By the end of the book, I was so angry with the illogical actions of Glinn, who is supposed to be an intelligent and reasonably good guy, that I wanted him torn from limb to limb.

The ending of the book doesn't make emotional or logical sense leaving the reader feeling cheated and angry. I've read pretty much everything these authors have written, together and singly, and I love the Pendergast books.

This book was a total disaster, though the Greek elements and the tie-in with Odysseus's journeys were fun.

Son mis autores preferidos, pero esta serie no engancha tanto como la de Pendergast. Aug 15, Anthony rated it it was amazing. I don't care what anyone said about this book Yes, yes, I know, the Sep 11, Cheryl rated it really liked it.

If you just sit back and enjoy, and don't ask too many questions, it's a page turner. The story started out very good. Got a little weird at the end with Ancient Greece references and finding a living Cyclops.

Love the characters, but I felt disappointed with the end of the story. Mar 03, Ricky rated it it was amazing Shelves: After a two-year hiatus, Gideon Crew returns in top form Utterly unbelievable but engaging nonetheless.

Full of adventure, a hint of romance, a sense of urgency, and a good blend of mythology and science. Oct 24, Lorrie rated it liked it Shelves: You have to let your imagination run wild to listen to this book.

Sep 06, Joan rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love these authors. I listened to an audio book this time.

There are fantastic things happening in this book, starting with stealing a page of the Book of Kells, the famous Irish book, erasing the illustration to find the map that is beneath.

Once they have the map, Gideon and Amy are going to find something that will cure human diseases and handicaps. Eli Glinn is funding the project because he thinks that he can benefit from the cure and get out of his wheel chair.

Because of Glinn's selfish I love these authors. Because of Glinn's selfishness people die and a unique, last of its kind species is killed.

Thrilling ending and of course, the start of the next book. Een 3,5 als beoordeling. Deze viel een beetje tegen omdat er teveel onwerkelijkheid in dit deel zat.

Maar nog steeds onderhoudend en ontspannend om te lezen. Ga nu gelijk door met het laatste boek uit de serie. Oct 03, Stefan Svartling rated it it was amazing.

I like these kind of stories that is full of fantasy and adventure. I don't care if it's not so believable story as long as it's interesting.
