I was so excited to read this book! It was right up my alley, with bits of that I really love to learn/read about! Action, adventure, thrills, Mayan History, Apocalyptic and prophecies… Unfortunately not! I had to read the first couple chapters a few times. I was SO lost! Granted it does start you off with some dude possessing some ancient dude and them having an internal battle, literally, of who is going to have control of the body. Really!? Then he takes you back in time leads you forever through the back history which was interesting albeit a bit misguided on some facts. But I wanted to like this book so much I kept going and for a while it was interesting and engaging. There is much talk of this ‘game’ that you never fully understand that they go on and on about but never really explain it. A quarter way into this book (pg 200+/-) you pretty much want to kill yourself so you don’t have to continue the torture. I hate not finishing a book. I will force myself to finish nearly anything. However, Frankly I just can’t take any more of this book!! 😐 First off he drags on and on and ON! About stupid crap that doesn’t matter and rambles around then jumps ahead and then looses you then decides to take a huge jump back and examine something in GREAT Length. He also likes to give the impression that he is an expert on many subjects when it’s obvious he actually knows NOTHING about it – this the case with the Mormons / LDS Church. I can understand a thing or two incorrect about a people that you are in fact not a part of. But his constant insistence that he’s an expert about them then gets major SIMPLE things about the people and religion so grossly incorrect I can’t take it anymore. (Yes, I’m a Mormon). Regardless, I can’t take the pain and suffering anymore or wasting anymore of my life….
