The Lost Tomb
The team is searching for what may be the lost gospel of Jesus. It lacks credibility when we are supposed to believe that organization has successfully performed its job for years with fare more powerful opponents than Jack. A lot of history is covered, a lot of exposition, but it serves to set the tone of the book. Great story, terribly told.
Aug 03, Brittney Tyler rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Want to Read saving…. The narrative is simple with rather two-dimensional characters, up against a poorly executed plot and ‘enemy’.
None of the discoveries made in this book were destroyed! Gibbinx taking a PhD from Cambridge University he taught archaeology in Britain and abroad, and is a world authority on ancient shipwrecks and sunken cities.
I enjoy books with some history and intellect. Apr 21, Kati rated it liked it. I don’t mind that I had to look up Claudius or parts of the Roman period to have a little more understanding of the places we were visiting.

The Last Gospel (The Lost Tomb)
I wish this book had been more thrilling and engaging. This book was easy to read and entertaining. Following the trail of clues Claudius has laid out, their quest takes them from Italy to London, California, and finally Jerusalem. Seemed like the author fizzled out big time. It’s a fair bit of dialogue to read, story compressed in a very short time considering the diving and travelling involved, thought the vavid would have strestched out more.
Dispatched from the UK in 3 business days When will my order arrive?
It requires a longer attention span gibibns get into a scene because of the length of historical descriptions. This book by David Gibbins, the third of his that I have read, starts out with this formula, but then it completely abandons it and becomes almost a college lecture.
This is the story of one last Gospel, left behind in gospeo age of the New Testament, in the greatest days of the Roman Empire, and of its extraordinary secret, one that has lain concealed for years. Paul was shipwrecked in, as told in the back of the book of Acts.
Mass Market Paperbackpages. Long conversations got confusing davvid try and figure out who was saying With this book, its the author that brings the story down. Perhaps the greatest secret ever kept What if one of the Ancient World’s greatest libraries was buried in volcanic ash and then re-discovered two thousand years later?
What gibbinz what was found there was a document that could shatter the very foundations of OK, so with its carbonised centuries old bodies, secret tunnels, Vestal Virgins and a long lost document that not everyone is happy about being discovered this wasn’t completely without merit its just that the expected ‘thrills and spills’ were too few and far between to maintain my interest, the author having an awful tendency to never run with them.
Looks like it is made from blah, blah stone according to blah, blah design. At least with DaVinci Code you get the final piece of the puzzle. This book slams constant historical stories in your face. It was like reading a pretend history lecture in places – gibbons much telling and not enough showing. This story is also told in a way that you can’t read a bit here and there.
