This is the book that I mentioned earlier today! And I just finished it :)
Title: 7 Deadly Wonders
Author: Matthew Reilly
It is a suspense novel about putting together the pieces of the golden capstone that goes on the top of the Great Pyramid. A team goes around the world trying to get all of the pieces to save the earth from destruction or from other countries trying to rule the world with it.
There was a big tie-in with Ancient Egypt, which of course made me fall in love, especially mentioning more on Alexander the Great, and all of the different ancient wonders that the book goes through to find the different pieces is also very nice. There are cute little drawings in it that are supposed to be visual aids to help you understand the logistics of the places they go and the different booby traps that they go through, which in one way is nice and they other leaves less to the imagination of the reader (and is just lazy of the author!).
Though I did like the book overall and the theme and such, and the suspense was thrilling, all in all the book was just average. I think the part that really detracted for me was the writing style. I feel like the writing was just a little immature at times. I did really enjoy the book though, so it will be getting a “Really liked it” for that and if the writing had been better it might have possibly gotten an “It was amazing.”
