A good plot badly written. I don't mean to be harsh but that's how it is. The book felt like reading a movie script instead of a novel. The scenes are too rushed at times, and the scenery abruptly changes, too fast (just like present day TV action series), and so many chapters just makes it more cluttered and confusing. Scenes are not clearly explained in my view, and it was very hard to visualize what was going on. The story is a typical sci-fi and has nothing to offer out of the box. It is jus [...]

Overly ComplicatedLately, I've had pretty good luck with exploring different genres. Unfortunately, this book missed the mark for me. Listening to the audiobook was a confusing endeavor, despite the fact that the narration was actually pretty good. There was just way too much going on with this story.'The Atlantis Gene' was a very complex Sci-Fi story with a plethora of characters. Every time I thought I had a good grasp of who everyone was, and what their motives were, something new would come [...]

I am not one to go back and modify my reviews (out of sight, and all), but I think there is some confusion about this one. I want to start out by stating that I love this book. Prime is clunky and I feel so lucky that I stumbled on this book, because the book itself is well crafted. I could easily suspend my disbelief for the duration, and the characters were likeable/unlikeable when they were supposed to be.I love Sci-Fi, which is the general category that I would put this book in, with a seco [...]

This book has a promising *suggestion* of a plot, which is why I gave it two starts. I gave up on it 38% in. It is written like a cheap action movie, not like a book, and feels as if Mr. Riddle never had any beta readers for this story. The author try to throw everything but the kitchen sink at you: Atlantis, aliens, secret brotherhoods and conspiracies, codes, ultimate good and ultimate evil, Nazis, and the list goes on. It seems Mr. Riddle was inspired by Dan Brown, but even Dan Brown started [...]

I deserve an award for being able to finish this book. Honestly.The plot had everything to attract me: genetic experiments, Greek myths and lost cities, evil Nazi conspiracies, even references to my own country. Yet, for the life of me, I cannot figure out how an author could accumulate all these fantastic ideas and deliver such a horrible story. At numerous times, all I wanted to do was stop reading and delete the book from my kindle, but I kept going, hoping the author would redeem himself and [...]

I can count on one hand the number of books I willfully put down before finishing, and this is one of them. I honestly tried (and even got through 73%, according to my Kindle), but it just got more painful. The plot is painfully contrived to the point where it seems the author just tosses in mystery and science fiction cliches and hopes they stick (Atlantis and aliens and evil corporations and Nazis and the list goes on), without any effort to weave them into the story. The writing is cringe-wor [...]

The Atlantis Gene drew me in from the start. This book is extremely fast-paced, almost like watching a movie. Great story line and characters. I especially loved the character development of Kate and David. I think the book does a good job of revealing back story without over doing it. A lot of books I read get bogged down in details and I lose interest but not this book.I caught myself looking up details from the book and found the author's website to have a great fact vs fiction section (atlan [...]

The Atlantis Gene (The Origin Mystery #1) by A.G. Riddle is a very interesting read. I got the audible version from the library. It had so many side stories going and I thought sure it would finally come together at the end but it did to some degree but the rest will be in the next books. I was hoping that more of the story would be in this book about what the secret would be about. I might continue the next books but I was a bit disappoint that this didn't have more. This was very action packed [...]

Brilliant. 489 pages of times when I stayed up until 2 in the morning with my eyes glued to my Kindle screen. 489 pages of when I'd be at work and frantically wanting to fangirl and wondering if anyone could see how excited I was.That's when you know a novel has captivated you with its story. I stumbled upon the book on , read the description, and thought, "Hm. A sci-fi novel with its own creation theory that involves Atlantis? This must be good." Every minute I had, every break I gained, I read [...]

This book has everything. Almost literally. Nazis,time travel, Atlantis, a mystical spear that was used to stab Jesus, secret portals that let you walk from Gibralter to Antarctica, space monkeys, miniature nuclear weapons that can be created in days and placed in a 5 year old's backpack, world wide plagues, neanderthals, genetic engineering, gun fights, love stories, crazy plot twists, the Spanish flu, magical potions that cure all wounds and ills, characters with massive Freudian complexes, lo [...]

I will not insult any reader of this DNF review by not disclosing the fact that I simply could not connect with this book and the style in which it was written. Thus, I did not finish it and after only 50 pages decided to put it down. So I will not offer any serious critique other than a rationale as to why I did not connect with it. If you find this annoying, i agree with you, yet as my least favorite saying goes: it is what it is (totally lame, because we all know it is what it is until its no [...]

No, no, no. Don't be misled by four thousand five star reviews on . Don’t do it. Don't read this book unlessUnless you thought the Da Vinci Code is a prime example of Great Literature and unless you're a devout follower of the History Channel's Crazy Hair Guy. The Atlantis Gene takes about a hundred plot bits - everything from Indiana Jones-type evil Nazis to 9-11 and Roswell to James Bond spies cross and double crosses, plus the Biblical Flood, Atlantis, eugenics, an Ebola-like flu, ancient a [...]

The first word that came to mind after finishing this novel was "Ambitious".Perhaps a bit too amibitious. There were many sub-plots requiring a set of characters or at least name changes for the characters. There were interesting people (the boy in the monastery) who were brought in, seemed pleasant, and then forgotten. Then there was the main trunk of the story line.or was it? And we see all these tubes with Atlanteans, but we fail to have any description of what they look like.So.while I thoro [...]

Definitely not the level of techno-thriller as say a Lincoln Child, James Rollins, or Michael Crichton but okay for what it is. The book was interesting enough to keep me reading but ultimately failed to satisfy me as a book by one of the others who I mentioned. I think it was due to the fact that the chapters we're so short and the action seemed to jump around from one storyline to the next much too quickly. I never got a chance to become invested in any of the characters or what was going on w [...]

The Origin Mystery trilogy is four stars or near to it. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts. I read all three books before writing the reviews, and I gave the first book in the series, The Atlantis Gene four stars. There is something for everyone in this trilogy. Imagine Robin Cook, Frederick Forsyth, Michael Crichton and Ursula K. Le Guin getting together to spin a yarn.The trilogy has its flaws, so I'd qualify the recommendation by stating it's for readers of the science fiction and [...]

Really simple, plot incomprehensibleReally simple, plot incomprehensibleThankfully I didnt pay a cent for this, but I did waste my monthlly Prime freebie loaner book for the month on it. This book is poorly done on every level. period. It's poorly written, it stereotypes Indonesians, Chinese jumps around from page to page with no rhyme or reason. I made it to 25 percent, but knew after a couple chapters that I was wasting my time.I have no earthly idea how so many have given 5 stars to this dri [...]

I borrowed this book for free using the Kindle Lending Library. While I gave this book 1 star, I think this author has potential. The overall concept was ok, but the work just felt unpolished. The sci-fi aspects were well explained, and the plot was fast paced, but the dialogue was cringe worthy. I think in an effort to explain the science but keep the pace moving the author sacrificed character development. My main problem with the book is I couldn't care less what happened to any of the people [...]

Author A.G. Riddle inaugural novel starts out pretty fast. Make that somewhat insanely fast. He throws things at the reader in rapid succession. But stick with it and pay attention. Comprehension will dawn. The characters begin to make sense and A.G. revisits everything. Every little plot twist gets attention. All the elements he packs into the beginning of the mystery will make sense. The grand scheme begins to make a little too much sense, making me wonder if there isn't some kind of Immari or [...]

I always hate to criticize an indie author's first published work. I know some of what it's like to put yourself out there for the public to notice and critique, and it's not an easy thing to do. So, first, kudos to the author for finishing and publishing.The concept behind this story is intriguing. While I think he's going off a bad idea of the Atlantis myth, he at least goes all in with it. And the science behind things, to my non-studied brain, seemed plausible and I didn't find myself rollin [...]

I was so disappointed in this book! It has a great plot, genetic experiments, Greek myths and lost cities, evil Nazi conspiracies, but I just could not get through it! Every night I would fail at my attempt to read this book, although today I finished it. The book is extremely confusing. I feel as though I might have liked the book better if I had taken more time to understand it. I also think think that I didn't like the book because I don't like Science Fiction. One time I was reading about th [...]

This was a debut novel for this author, and boy, could I tell. Talk about overloading your book with topics! This book included such diverse subjects as several religions, evolution and Darwinism, autism, and then tried to combine genres of books as well such as mystery with almost James Bond type action, as well as turning this into a piece of science fiction. It was kind of as if the author was trying to set this up for a moviebut I don't see that coming, simply because this was way too busy. [...]

A.G. Riddle seamlessly combined several genres, including historical fiction, mystery, science fiction, and romance in THE ATLANTIS GENE. The novel began intriguingly with a dig in Antarctica and a kidnapping in Indonesia then moves around the world from Southeast Asia to China to Europe and back to Asia and Antarctica. The plot revolves around geneticist Kate Warner and counter-terrorism specialist David Vale, who are in a race against time to take down a global syndicate hell bent on killing t [...]

If the legend of Atlantis fascinates you, if you’re interested in the possible origins of the human species, and if you love a good thriller, the Atlantis Gene is the book for you. Throw in some historical oddities and two warring factions fighting for the future of the human race and you get a potboiler that is extremely entertaining and hard to put down.As an independent novelist myself, I know how hard it is to get noticed. The Atlantis Gene should be noticed and appreciated for the deftnes [...]

This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. It seriously has everything AND it flows well. I wish I could say more but I don't want to give anything away!! One of the few mystery books that I didn't have figured out within the first few chapters. Seriously, read this book.

Note: this is the same review I wrote on the site. This book is not yet available through Audible, but the author has a contract with them for the first two books in the series. I am almost always working on three to five books at a time. I found this debut novel a major page turner, and was unable to read another book while I was immersed in this one. I almost never read a self-published novel. I'm a slow reader, and just don't have time to do a lot of experimental reading. However, in working [...]

Started off with a strong prologue but I felt the super short chapters and constant cutting from one thing to another always kept me at a distance and I never really got that involved with the story. Although a fairly simple plot, it became quickly convoluted for my taste. I'm in the minority as it's clearly a well received book, but I just found the 'As you know bob' style of delivering exposition via dialogue a little forced, and with the constant cutting between short chapters it felt like a [...]

Man! An amazing book I couldn't put down (and at 488 pages that's a long thrill ride).A little bit sci-fi, a little bit mystery, suspense, thriller, and even historical fiction - it's all here and not only kept me on the edge of my seat but kept me guessing where it was going.This story has some of the most ruthless villains (or are they?) and the author is ruthless in his own way too, not afraid to kill off one character after another just as you get to know them.Don't really understand some of [...]

Not too bad, hard to follow at times, but over all caught my attention. Figured it would get better with each book as the story progresses.Listened to the audio book for the most part and was pretty good. If your into sci-fi then this may be something you will like. Has some technical stuff that was a little over my head, and science stuff, etc.

mm still scratching my head on this one. Imagine, evolution, Nazii's, apocolypse, gynetic stem cell research, Autism,pandemic, Extinction, time traveling, war and a world wide hunt for an answer. Yeah. not quite was I was expecting. This story was good but I didn't follow quite what was going on until the last 20 chapters or so. I am not sure if I am intrigued enough to continue the series.
