If you ignore the changed political landscape and some of the holes in the science, it's an excellent story. It grips you from the start and doesn't let go until the end.
This is a good story of the hollow earth genre. It's a bit wordy in parts, but the story is good and explores the mysteries of the occult, theosophy and science and their relationships.
The only thing that was annoying was the Irish accent used by one of the characters. Otherwise a good read and one that I'll definitely pick up again in the future!
Wow! This is a book that is outside of my normal reading comfort-zone (I normally read Science fiction and historical fiction) and although the plot was a little predictable in parts the twists and turns of the storyline make this a a real page turner. The twist at the very ending was a complete suprise. I thoroughly recommend this book.
A thought provoking book. It's an excellent pointer to how to get the most from a busy day
