Reviews

"The lively, skeptical but open-minded travel writer Mark Adams...takes readers along to four plausible sites, without quackery and with a contagious spirit of curiosity, interviewing scores of experts and fanatics, and painting pictures that will make even the most levelheaded traveler yearn to repeat his fantastic itinerary."--The New York Times Book Review

"Infused with humor and pop culture references, Adams makes what could have been a tedious recitation of theories into an exciting adventure."--Chicago Tribune

"Adams maintains a journalistic skepticism and a buoyant sense of humor, making Atlantis a gripping journey."--Entertainment Weekly

"Always entertaining, Meet Me in Atlantis also introduces a significant amount of Platonic philosophy and devotes generous space to legitimate archaeology like that in Akrotiri. Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect is Adams's knack for clever descriptions of places and people."--The Daily Beast

"Writing with the same jaunty style as Turn Right at Machu Picchu, Adams merrily entertains the lost-cities audience."--Booklist

"Few mythic places exert a more powerful pull on the imagination than Atlantis, and here the fabled lost city has found its perfect chronicler. Adventurous, inquisitive and mirthful, Mark Adams gamely sifts through the eons of rumor, science, and lore to find a place that, in the end, seems startlingly real indeed--like a vivid dream surfacing from the weird and murky depths of human consciousness."--New York Times bestselling author Hampton Sides

"The collision between Adams' youthful zeal and journalistic sensibilities provide an arresting dichotomy to an absorbing search... Fact or fiction, Atlantis, as the author ably demonstrates, still has the power to enthrall inquiring minds."--Kirkus Reviews
