Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals Fan Reviews

Although I've managed to finish the new TR novel, Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals, I just can't seem to work up the enthusiasm to write a review. So I'm using the old blogger's cop-out of linking to other reviews that I agree with. My favorites so far come from Helen at Tangledwires and Noelle at Pfangirl: Through the Looking Glass.

Helen (a.k.a. @Lady_Scion) originally reviewed the book in a series of Tweets, which she has collected into a hilariously spot-on review on her blog, Tangledwires.

Noelle (@pfangirl) takes a more traditional journalistic route with her Ten Thousand Immortals review, but the upshot is the same. She notes that while the novel does include some snappy action scenes and dialogue, "There's a very good reason that people have sarcastically renamed the book Tomb Raider and the Ten Thousand Train Rides or Tomb Raider and the Ten Thousand Sips of Water." For an action-adventure, it's just plain boring. Check out her complete review, "Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals reviewed – from Reboot Lara to Robot Lara."

If you just can't leave well enough alone, I certainly wouldn't fault you. Like a good archaeologist, a good fan should investigate thoroughly and draw her own conclusions. You can find The Ten Thousand Immortals in local bookshops or online in paperback, Kindle, or iBooks format. If you've read it, I'd love to hear what you think. Leave a comment below or Tweet me.
