He estado enfrascado estos dias en la lectura de "El Testamento Maya",un libro que me ha resultado muy didactico e interesante,a pesar de que en algunos momentos el estilo narrativo de su autor , excesivamente cargado con datos tecnicos y terminos especializados , lo unico que conseguia eran distraer mi atencion y entorpecer la lectura. Pese a ese lastre,la tematica de la novela resulta realmente fascinante,sobretodo si el lector se siente atraido por la Mitologia. La Mitologia Maya,desde sus origenes en el pueblo Olmeca ,hasta su desaparicion como cultura tras la llegada de los europeos y enlazando esos mitos con otros diseminados por todo el planeta,desde Egipto hasta Nazca,pasando por Stonehenge. Kukulkan,el dios protector y maestro. Hun-Hunahpu,el elegido.

Some time ago--probably a year or two back--I saw a paperback copy of this book in the bookshop. I glanced at the blurb and thought interesting, but put it back and decided to look it up in the library.
Dominique did not in any way fit the mould. I could have understood a moment or two of weakness at the face of an emotional dilemma, but I could not tolerate her bawling at every single turn. She did not. Any academic should know better and that the author would brush it aside so makes me doubt his qualifications. Then again, I know nothing about sport medicine. But I do know a thing or two about story telling. The beginning was too slow and bogged down by the numerology-would-be-archeology and choosing Dominique as the main character from whose point of view to introduce the alternative world, did not work.
Failures in her characterisation prevented me from connecting with the story. Once the focus was shifted to Mick and the actual thriller part was embraced, I could see why people could--some would--like this very much.
Borgia is the most interesting character of the lot and he has some kind of background to justify his actions. The fact that this book was written over a decade ago shows. As always the human factor distances his view of status quo from the reality. People die, people cheat, people get elected to office. Somehow failing economy and the possibilities it creates with new world order s seems scarier than a nuclear holocaust. One last note. This was the last book I expected to read a bad romance in.
Entering the book unsure what to expect, I must admit that I enjoyed it more than I had expected. I have not read all that many alien books and the fact that this one was connected back to the Mayan calendar was very interesting. That being said, the three star review reflects the fact that I have not read all that many books in this genre rather than across all the books I have read.
Also, I felt as though the book could have been cut down in size somewhat. I felt as though certain aspects were dragged out more than they needed to be. Events weeks before doomsday were given much more attention than the days leading up to the end of the Mayan calendar. I realise that these events were important yet at times I felt as though I was forcing myself to carry on reading.
Still, it was well researched and interesting.
