Oct 15, 2009"SHADES OF MEMNON: BOOK III - AFRICAN ATLANTIS UNBOUND" First of all, let me pre-empt this review by saying that the highest praise that I could ever give a work of literature is to say that it changed me as a person. That being said, the Shades of Memnon Series by Gregory "Bro. G" Walker is literature of epic proportion because of this very fact. Bro. G's characters reflect the greatness of what Black people have been in ages past, and what we must be again if we are to right the ills that plague our communities and our world. In Shades of Memnon: Book III - African Atlantis Unbound, Bro. G takes the reader back in time, down through the ages, into the Age of Gods and Heroes, when Africa was supreme and African people set the standard for academic, spiritual and phsical excellence on this planet. A time when heroes were plenty, and heroic deeds were the norm. In this third installment of his African Legends Adventure series, Bro. G revisits the perilous quest... More > of the Kushite hero Memnon the Younger (Memna-Un) as he spans the globe in search of his long-lost father, Memnon the Elder (whose exploits and deeds are immortalized in ancient lore for his heroics during the Trojan war.) His search leads him to the unfamiliar shores of Atlantis (Ancient America) to the mystical peaks of Mount Olympus where he encounters both friend and foe, including the legendary feathered serpent Quetzlcoatl, the fierce female warriors of the Amazon Nation, the omnipotent Titans of ancient tradition, and the mighty gods of Olympia. The book is choc-full of high drama, action and adventure, but the most fascinating thing to me is the amount of historical and cultural information that the author has jam-packed into this novel. It is "edutainment" at its best (entertaining, but at the same time highly relevant, inspirational, and educational.) One can't help but be schooled about ancient Africa and the achievements of African people from reading these books. It is evident that countless hours of research was put into the weaving of this tale. I would highly recommend this novel to anyone with a love of good fiction, action and adventure, but more specifically those interested in gaining a fuller apreciation of African history and culture. If you are one who still clings to the belief that Africa is "The Dark Continent", where Africans have lived in a perpetual state of barbarism from their beginning, I challenge you to read this novel, then re-evaluate your position.< Less
Feb 2, 2006"Shades of Memnon: African Atlantis Unbound" I have read and enjoyed all 3 Shades of Memnon books. Each time I have completed the book in 3 days or less. The books are simply amazing. As it relates to Book III, I was swept into the plot immediately; or should I say multiple plots. There are so many layers to the book. The search for their father, the healing of Memnon's sister Neftiji and her coming into her own as a mother, warrior and healer. Then you had the Amazon warriors, the evil Votan, the Medjay Warriors and my personal favorite Balaam the big Warrior cat! The way each sub-plot built into the outcome of the main plot made this book a great read. Once Memnon the Elder were rescued, the pace of action stepped up even another notch. And for me personally, the interaction of father and son in training and battle is something I think young African American boys and men need to read about. I plan to read the Book set over again so that I can become an expert on African... More > Legends!< Less
