Book Review: The Hidden Chamber in the Great Sphinx by Linda A. Cadose

Blurb: American archeologist Dr. Cliff Post and his friend Egyptian archeologist Dr. Abdul Saad discover a hidden chamber in the right paw of the Great Sphinx. Inside they find an ancient supercomputer left there thousands of years ago by ancient aliens. A terrorist group seeks to obtain possession of this supercomputer. The Hidden Chamber in the Great Sphinx is the first in a series featuring the adventures of American archeologist, Dr. Cliff Post.

This book was given to me by the author in exchange for a honest review. I would like to point out, this is (as always) my humble opinion. Not everyone will agree.

I have always been fascinated by Egypt, by the old Pharaohs, their beliefs, and when I heard that this book was about a hidden chamber in the Great Sphinx, I was excited. This plot screamed adventure to me.

Unfortunately, I have to say, I got disappointed. I’ll try and explain.

I had trouble with keeping track of the timeline, it was jumping too much. One minute it was one day, the next several weeks must have gone by, but according to the story, it was still same day, but an event who wasn’t supposed to happen until much later, just occurred…  And it didn’t happen just once, but several times through the story.

The story telling and dialog was very choppy. Short sentences, many things being repetitive, there weren’t really a flow to her story. Well, except when it came to when she told about Egypt, or their history. Then it was much, much better. The flow of the story improved, and it didn’t feel as pushed/rushed.
