Reviews

Praise for The Curse of Oak Island

"Sullivan writes with open-minded balance, rendering the Oak Island story into a weirdly fascinating mystery."--Booklist

"The Curse of Oak Island is a definitive read for fans of the History Channel television show. Sullivan delves deeper into the history, personalities, and theories presented only briefly on the show. His approach is mostly unbiased, though he does tell the reader his thoughts on some of the theories and the theorists that he thoroughly researches and debunks. The book is incredibly well researched and the presentation . . . is very readable. If you've watched The Curse of Oak Island and were frustrated that snippets and possibilities were left tantalizingly unexplored, this is the book for you." --Heather Cover, Homewood Library (Birmingham, Alabama)

"Sullivan isn't writing about Oak Island the TV show; his subject is Oak Island the place, largely as seen and imagined by the show's viewers. So, if you've ever been more entranced by the show's long trips into history and theoretical island encounters across history, Sullivan's book probably needs to be on your Christmas list."--Starcasm

Praise for Randall Sullivan:

"Compelling . . . No single source presents so complete or damning a record as LAbyrinth." --Entertainment Weekly on LAbyrinth

"As a forceful author, Sullivan does a masterly job of juggling the dense thicket of facts and navigating the crowded chronology of the case." --Salon.com on LAbryinth

"Sullivan's reportage is extraordinary, his narrative enthralling." --Rolling Stone on The Price of Experience

"Sullivan's riveting tale is amazingly detailed and artfully presented. . . You can hardly turn the page fast enough . . . Contiporary history, brilliantly written."--Playboy on The Price of Experience

"[An] engrossing, damning tale . . . Exhaustively researched, the book methodically weaves a disturbing story of corruption, intimidation, and murder." --Boston Globe on LAbyrinth

"Worthy of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Sullivan captures the essence of the world in which Hunt and the BBC operated."--Chicago Tribune on The Price of Experience

"A stunning mix of the personal and the historic, interviews and experiences, with Sullivan incredibly nimble at making the worlds overlap." --Booklist (starred review) on The Miracle Detective

""Well-told and expertly researched."-- Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Miracle Detective
