Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite

Our culture seems caught in a never-ending fascination with ancient cultures, civilizations, and places which we know little about. The island of Atlantis is one of these. I have read a lot of stories, books, and comic books centered around Atlantis. Then there are the movies and TV shows. Atlantis is everywhere. It is sprinkled throughout our cultural landscape. I feel I know as much about Atlantis as most people who get their information by reading fiction and watching television. There are a lot of stories, but very little critical analysis. This is what makes Plato’s Caribbean Atlantis so valuable and interesting. Dr. P.P. Flambas has given me a scientific foundation with which to sift through the mountain of myth and legend. I appreciate it and I am very glad I read Plato’s Caribbean Atlantis. I feel I know all that can be learned without going back to school and then becoming an archaeologist myself.

Dr. P.P. Flambas takes a rational approach, a scientific approach. It works because he writes well and lays out his findings and his thoughts in clear and concise language that is easy to follow. It is in many ways like reading a detective’s result of an investigation, and I homed in on the points that were pertinent to me - such as could the citizens of ancient Atlantis really have created the technology Plato describes? When did humans settle Atlantis? Were the Egyptian priests' records accurate? Things like this fascinate me and Plato’s Caribbean Atlantis entertained me for hours and has me still thinking today.
