Atlantis
Atlantis - David Gibbins

I really enjoyed this one. There is a lot of scientific and technical terminology that went over my head, but that is where reading this on my kindle worked better than reading the physical book, because I could use the dictionary feature. The first part of the book goes a little slow with all of the various information central to the story. The action part of this book doesn't really start until about half way through, but when it does it is fast paced and moves along quickly. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series soon!

You must have heard of Atlantis (Ancient Greek: Ἀτλαντὶς νῆσος, "island of Atlas") - an island renowned for its Ancient  and .

Personally, I’ve heard about it while exploring The Secret Doctrine written by the Russian mystic Blavatsky, the founded of Theosophical Society in the 1870s. She claimed that this text was dictated for the first time in Atlantis. She believed that the Atlanteans were cultural and  leaders of Gaia, but due to the mis-use of their psychic and supernatural powers, they developed a lethal weapon that has destroyed the island.

#Promotional_Post & Excerpt - The Atlantis Twins (Mermaid Curse #1) by M.S. Kaminsky
The Atlantis Twins - M.S. Kaminsky

Never trust a mermaid with a broken heart. 

 
Seventeen-year-old Marei lives on Alabaster Island, a remote tropical isle inhabited by twenty-one families. Nobody under the age of eighteen has ever left to visit the mainland. The island and its strange customs are all that Marei and her friends know.
 
For years, Marei dreaded The Binding. On that day, each teen must write his or her choice of life mate. But with childhood sweetheart drowned long ago, Marei has no boy in mind. And so she leaves her paper blank. This sets off a chain of events that ruptures the bedrock of her life and leads her to question the only home she’s ever had. 
 
She encounters a mermaid, beings thought to have gone extinct. The mermaid tells Marei to leave the island and offers to help. When a handsome teen from the mainland becomes stranded after a supply drop, Marei falls in love. Her secret plan to flee becomes an obsession. 
 
But the mermaid has a hidden agenda of her own. Now Marei must confront the shocking reality that lies beneath island life. The choices she makes threaten to upend her fate and that of her island community forever…but only if she can escape alive.

Atlantis: The Eighth Continent
Atlantis: The Eighth Continent - Charles Berlitz

Atlantis has tantalized Western culture for millennia, but only since the 19th century has the topic of its existence become a touchstone of controversy between “believers” and “deniers”.  Atlantis: The Eighth Continent by Charles Berlitz is a book in support of the mid-oceanic Atlantis over Mediterranean candidates or being a legend.  Purporting to use the latest scientific and archaeological evidence—albeit in the mid-1980s—Berlitz looks to give strong proof that Plato’s Atlantis was real.

 

Bringing forth ruins and cultural evidence from both sides of the Atlantic, Berlitz began his argument by attempting to show a shared connection between numerous cultures across the world that seemed to be influenced by the same source.  Then he became chronicling the scientific discoveries of unwater ruins, dismissed by scientists as natural phenomena, that prove ruins of an ancient civilization having existed in the mid-Atlantic.  While a surface reading of this material is thought-provoking, Berlitz’s misunderstanding of geology undermined the book back in the mid-80s.  The science of plate tectonics is the biggest problem with Berlitz’s book and the fact that his understanding is so wrong would make you shake your head.

 

While there are a lot Berlitz’s theories that just don’t stack up, he did expression layman ideas that surprisingly have begun to be debated within the scientific community though for reasons close to Atlantis.  The first is that cataclysms can and do occur within the geological record, but his thoughts and evidence are nothing compared to Dr. Robert M. Schoch’s.  The second was suggesting that an impact event occurred at the end of the last Ice Age that caused a sudden melting of ice, while scientists are beginning to believe an impact did occur it actually resulted in sudden cooling instead of heating.  Yet these two ideas do not make up for all the incorrect assumptions Berlitz’s writes.

 

Atlantis: The Eighth Continent is packed full of cultural information from around the world that is its major appeal along with two ideas by the author that are now being debated by scientists but not to prove Atlantis.  Frankly the evidence doesn’t prove Atlantis in the mid-Atlantic, but it’s a curious read nonetheless.
