THE AMAZON CODE BY NICK THACKER

As a kid, I remember being extremely fascinated with jungles and even played many imaginary games about them. I watched Congo, with its strong female lead and feel in love. That is why when I saw this book I brought it immediately with a lot of expectations.

STUFF ON THE BACKCOVER SAYS

The Amazon rain forest is hiding a secret.One woman has uncovered it.When her company discovers a remarkable hidden message in the dreaming brains of her subjects, Dr. Amanda Meron unknowingly invites disaster unto her company.

PLOT IN SHORT

A team of scientists, make a groundbreaking discovery which puts them on a hit list of their own investors. The discovery leads the heroine and her group, deep into the Amazon jungle to find the city of “El Dorado” before the mercenaries or natural elements get to them.

THE GOOD

– fast paced story

– interesting concept

– the fight scenes are nicely written

– Good character development

THE BAD

I found the following logical pitfalls in the book

SPOILERS AHEAD!!

1. How did Reggie not find anything fishy about the mercenaries shooting his friends but letting Rhett go with only a small stab wound?
2. Who funded the trip? No one paid Reggie, nor was there any payment discussion for the plane nor for the boat. When such a trip is involved with that kind of supplies and ammunition, it’s very difficult to believe that anyone will do it for free?
3. When Reggie and Ben were trying to distract the mercenaries to allow everyone to enter the boat , how did the captain know exactly when to start it. Why wasn’t he afraid of the gunfire and ask them for an explanation?
4 . How did the men, who sailed the Amazon river for a living die, but all the outsiders survive?
5.How come the piranhas only attacked one local guy and let everyone else pass through the river unharmed?

MY THOUGHTS

In-spite of all the things I pointed out above I still think it was a good book. I guess the author oversaw these points to make the plot more interesting. Logic, such a simple thing, sometimes is the most difficult to use. Give this one a try if you love the action/ adventure genre.

MY RATINGS

3.8
