Atlantis - A Dane Maddock Adventure by David Wood

Yet another fun-filled adventure in the same series. Although still good, it seems like David Wood writes with the exact same equation, but only changes a few main themes.

The beginning is an intro scene from the past, next is present day character development to get the plot rolling, next is the intro of the baddies and their race to get to the same goal as the team, the majority of the middle is just plot, towards the last 90% of the book the team reaches their destination and all the big unanswered questions are all revealed in 1-2 pages. The key information is not extrapolated upon as the plot continues towards an ending and then bam, book over.

So yeah all of Mr. Wood's books are like this and although it works for a quick read, there is no longer a difference. He should really mix it up a bit and do something different. I'm already feeling my interest go by the wayside.
