Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

A golden ring. An ancient map. Visions of the Apocalypse on the walls of an Egyptian tomb. From across the sea of time comes a legend older than antiquity.
The year is 1935. A chance encounter in Cairo leads Richard Quizzenbury, man of letters and affluent bon vivant, in search of a mystery that has lingered on the fringes of human imagination, a saga that has entranced scholars and dreamers alike for thousands of years.
Quizzenbury, in alliance with renowned archaeologist Professor Nicholas Adrianos, embarks upon an adventurous quest to find a mythical kingdom... The Kingdom of Keftiu.
Beneath the volcanic soil of an Aegean Island the relics of a Golden Age await them…an age when gods and heroes walked the earth…the fabled age of Atlantis.

In this book, David Arthur has given us what amounts to an archaeological mystery novel. Set in 1935-36, it takes us from the ruins of an Egyptian cave to an island in the Aegean Sea. Arthur delights in carrying the reader along on the journey, and he uses the late Victorian mindset and historical background of the time to set the theme very convincingly. The novel is structured around the various diary entries of at least half a dozen characters. But it focuses mostly on protagonist Richard Quizzenbury, an English adventurer who believes there is a connection between certain Egyptian and Minoan sites and the fabled lost civilization of Atlantis. His host and partner is a Greek archeologist, Nicholas Adrianos, who knows about both these civilizations, and tries to keep Richard on the right track. Nicholas is after the truth behind the history; Richard wants to play with the myth. They have backing from a wealthy black-market racketeer, Max Freund, who has dubious connections with authorities, to lend some tension in what is predominantly a historical puzzle.

For anyone who has actually read history on these ancient cultures, it will all become familiar as we engage our minds with the characters, for Arthur does a great job in filling us in on the various connections of the ancient world, and his impressions via the people involved makes it feel socially and culturally important, as if this was a Greek travelogue from Mark Twain. The arguments presented are engrossing, and this reader could not help but wish that I was there on Thera with the rest of them, digging up a fascinating past. Thera (the modern island of Santorini) suffered one of history's biggest volcanic explosions in ancient times, and this catastrophe dominates the entire story. Was there really a connection between the royal family of Egypt and the Keftiu, who were the ancient Therans? Was there a basis for the Atlantis myth from these tales? There are many times when the novel reads like a documentary on these events, but that doesn't detract from the compelling dialogues and ideas presented in mild dramatic form. Long before reading this, I was persuaded, from my previous readings over the years, of Quizzenbury's conclusions, that Atlantis may have been real and that civilization can be wiped out by natural events without a moments' notice. Arthur likes to think so, and this novel is a grand refreshment of the theories involved. He has offered a captivating scenario, with the facts and the fiction surrounding these places mixed together into a very fine blend.

I finished "Kingdom" last night ... a fabulous read!! I loved the whole thing ... the narrative, the historical descriptions and references, the characters, the plot .... there was absolutely nothing to keep this book from being a #1 best seller. Reminds me of Ken Follett's "Pillars" in its use of a historical setting ... but a much more interesting read than Follett.
