May 22, Tim rated it really liked it. I was rather wary of reading this after seeing the reviews on here, but I am glad I stuck it out and got into it.
It is rather slow in the beginning even though it jumps into a lot of action from the beginning. You never develop an attachment to the characters, but it does not detract from the story.
Rather, you watch the events from a detached perspective.

I will say that most of the twists and turns were not very surprising, but what sold this book to me is the Homeric connection and quest for the shield of Achilles.
I also like the point about the artifacts that have been lost to war and irreverent persons. Apr 29, Hildegart rated it it was amazing.
I enjoyed this book tremendously and hoped that the author would come out with another book I really liked, but he hasn't. I found this book intriguing.
I loved the premise of this, Achilles armour and shield. That was what grabbed my attention in the first place. I was sad to say I never connected with the characters.
For me to enjoy a book, I have to have that connection. Grant, the main character was lackadaisical in my eyes, he never quite got the whole hero of the story down pat.
The rest of the characters where so bland if I chose to mention them here, I would have to I loved the premise of this, Achilles armour and shield.
The rest of the characters where so bland if I chose to mention them here, I would have to go back and look them up. The story had enough villains to have a series of books.
Let's not forget all the ancient civilizations, Minoans, Greeks and a few others. This book had so very much promise, but it got lost in too much over the top action and not enough mystery of the ages to be solved.
Overall, it was okay, a good summer read but not one to be purchased to savor over again and again. So this book is a slow start, so slow in fact I was thinking of putting it in the giveaway pile once I finished it.
The author doesn't bother describing the main character and you don't find out he's British till about pages into it.
Perhaps the author being British assumes we would guess the hero would have to be British. But still in my mind I cast the characters as certain people and I was becoming more and more attached to Sam and Marina.
I was hoping eventually they would kiss or admit f So this book is a slow start, so slow in fact I was thinking of putting it in the giveaway pile once I finished it.
I was hoping eventually they would kiss or admit feelings for each other. I got all that and more. Around when Marina finds out about her brother the story picks up and turns into a thrill ride that I could barely put down.
I felt like I was watching a summer blockbuster and truly I don't know why it was never turned into a movie. While I was reading I was trying to write how I thought it should end, and even I didn't come up with a ending that tidied up every last piece.

That's mostly untrue - it's a "The palace of Knossos was no longer the labyrinth it had been in legend, but there were still ways to lose yourself in it, and Pemberton knew the layout better than any man alive.
That's mostly untrue - it's actually an unashamed Indiana Jones homage. Jun 11, Tim rated it it was ok. The whole thing seemed like a massive McGuffin for some rather dull, off the shelf characters.
A tiny bit of kudos for use of the Iliad, but really it was wading through mud to get to the end. Aug 16, Andronicus Kok rated it it was amazing Shelves: An ex special ops soldier is entrusted with a leather notebook filled with an archaeologist life work which contains a deadly secret.
He sets out to find why he has died protecting it and what's it worth behind the secret even though its in ancient Greek and mysterious symbols.
A so so read disappointed with the story flow. Jun 19, Madie rated it it was amazing Shelves: Jan 15, Daniel Rudge rated it really liked it.
Well plotted and paced, the cardboard antagonists can be excused for the foils they are intended to be. Just sit back and enjoy the twists and turns of this high octane thriller that mixes large doses of Greek mythology with cold war spy intrigue.
Now the code that reveals its hiding place is about to be broken. The secrets of the distant past may hold the key to the newest threats of the modern world.
Mar 01, Ray rated it really liked it Shelves: I enjoyed this one. Not sure why it gets so so reviews. Still an interesting story and a yarn spun well.
Oct 23, Katharine rated it really liked it. A superb if fast romp around classical greek sites in the Med and beyond. James Bond meets Indiana Jones.
Commies instead of Nazis. Achilles' shield instead of the Ark. Feb 19, Larry Lange rated it liked it. I liked many parts of the story but I felt I was in history or mythology class throughput.
I did not like the characters which made it hard to like the book. I will try another of his books. May 01, Philip Redford rated it really liked it.
Great first read, look forward to reading more in this series. Apr 28, Jc rated it liked it. This book took me a little time to finally get into it.
Jun 17, Lena rated it it was ok. Jun 20, Geoffrey rated it liked it Recommends it for: Review of Lost Temple: Thriller readers, in Tom Harper's novel, Lost Temple, the main story takes place in with the primary objective of recovering Achilles's shield.
The shield is supposedly made of a rare metal, Element 61, Prometheum, which the Brits, the Yanks, and the Russians all want.
The main objective of the author appears to be to share insights into archaelogical facts and mysteries. The former being the translation of Linear B from an ancient tablet, which occurred in T Review of Lost Temple: The latter being whether the Temple where Achilles was buried, along with his shield, actually existed.
The facts and the mysteries were the fun part for me. The writing not so much. The pacing was uneven and the characters were, more or less, uninteresting, except for Reed, the Oxford professor.
The Lost Temple is an energetic romp around the Mediterranean for historical adventurers. If not, then you will find it to be worth the three stars that I gave it.
For me, I lived on Crete, visited Knossos, and know of the Nazi airborne invasion and a lot of the archaeological references. I enjoyed the book, but I am not sure that I am overly excited about it.
A The Lost Temple is an energetic romp around the Mediterranean for historical adventurers. At times I felt like I was playing Castle Wolfenstein or some other first person shooter adventure.
It sufficed as great airport reading material and was well researched and also had well developed characters. Mar 28, Emlen rated it liked it Shelves: It ain't Shakespeare, but if you happen to be a Classics nerd, I definitely recommend this: My favorite scene somewhat spoiler-ish, so I'll hide it , which, if you're a Classicist, should help you understand what the attraction of this book is: The brilliant Oxbridge Classicist is puzzling over it, trying to decipher it, with little success.
He explains the difficulties he's having to the others, one of whom shrugs and says "It's all Greek to me" Uneven pacing and an ending that seemed rushed detract a bit from what is otherwise a solid thriller with an interesting historical perspective.
In this one, which is mostly set in , the good guys are on the hunt for the shield of Achilles. Seems there was more truth to the Iliad than many would have believed.
