5.0 von 5 Sternen OMAR is a Thriller with a capital T 22. Juli 2012
Von Diane Rapp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I love reading exciting books that keep me on the edge of my seat. This one has it all: a treasure hunt, crazed terrorists, car chases, kidnapping, deep sea diving, and the Titanic! Craig O. Thompson didn't miss any bases when writing this thriller and his description of a terrorist attack was almost too real. The paperback version of the book was originally published a month before the events of 9/11! In Thompson's book the terrorists are scary--determined to kill with insane hatred and cruelty. I frankly had to skip a few of the more grisly scenes but braver souls will appreciate the imagination and research of a talented author.

The novel's main hero, Cary Parker was a member of the team of scientists who discovered the Titanic and explored the wreck. Although he pledged never to bring up relics from the Titanic gravesite, the government gets intelligence that terrorists plan to retrieve treasure to finance future attacks. The Great Omar is a valuable rare book with jewels embedded in the leather binding. If the book is still intact, the masterpiece could finance heinous terrorist attacks. Parker reluctantly agrees to retrieve the treasure--and then the terrorists target him!

Readers of this very well-written novel learn about the intricate process of book binding and go back in time to meet the artist who created the masterpiece as well as the passengers who died protecting the book. Back to modern times, Thompson describes the technical aspects of diving inside a high-tech submersible as Parker dives to the wreck, resting in the black depths of freezing cold water. Several times I wondered how he knew all these things--the answer is comprehensive research.

If you enjoy reading adventures by Clive Cussler, Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, Jack Higgins or Wilbur Smith, you need to buy this thriller! Thompson's insight into terrorism is more relevant in today's dangerous world, and we'd be lucky to have a man like Cary Parker on our side.

Craig O. Thompson has magnificently written a story based on historical fact overflowing with suspense and intrigue. It is apparent after reading "Omar" why the author is the International Benjamin Franklin award-winner of the Silver Award for Best New Voice - Fiction.

Worldwide terrorism with a magnitude of deadly consequences was set into motion in 1995 aboard the remains of RMS Titanic. Dr. Cary Parker an oceanographer and specialist at the Smithsonian Institute is called upon to challenge the terrorists and beat them at their own game. A terrorist organization is after a priceless treasure called The Great Omar buried amongst the ruins of the Titanic. The FBI and CIA join forces to rescue this priceless treasure before the terrorists get their hands on it. What follows is a complex and indescribable journey filled with suspense and drama that held me firmly in its grasp.

Dr. Cary Parker is a character that has vowed to protect the sanctity of the Titanic wreckage and wrestles with his involvement in this operation. He is a devoted family man and a trusted, loyal and well respected friend and colleague. He is a remarkable character that is very realistic and I could relate to him on a human level.

Jennifer Nakamura a decorated FBI agent is assigned to the project to aid Dr. Parker. She is an extremely confident, strong, loyal and well placed character that plays an essential part in this story. The remaining cast of characters are extremely well thought-out and presented in a way that is truly believable and frightening.

This story places the spotlight on world politics and the sacrifice of a person's personal values all in the name of greed. The dialogue in this book is intelligently written and very thought provoking. The wealth of information provided by the author is interesting, informative and definitely kept me wanting to read more.

It is absolutely apparent that a great deal of knowledge, research and time went into the writing of this book. I learned a great deal reading this book and at the same time was totally taken in with the story and the characters. Especially poignant to me were the recollections and facts about the Titanic.

"Omar" is truly a journey of suspense, intrigue and mystery that is a MUST READ for all readers. I highly recommend it for the extraordinary and descriptive writing, excellent characters and circumstances and a tremendous story-line that delivers a wealth of knowledge and held me hostage throughout.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Omar, a novel 2. April 2012
Von ZiZi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This novel is very apropos, this being the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, there are a lot of informations in the media. Curious to know about the title "Omar", I read with great interest the description of this great book, encrusted in jewels and gold! I was captivated from the very first page, so much so that I neglected chores, cleaning and even cooking!!
The facts on the background informations, regarding the creation of this book were fascinating as were the characters. Mr Thompson is a gifted storyteller!
In the novel, Dr. Parker,our hero and deep sea diver, is reluctantly hired to retrieve the Great Book at the bottom of the Titanic, in order to prevent it's acquisition by a group of terrorists.
The dialogues were stimulating and thought provoking. Despite the facts that it is quite a lengthy , 624 pages more or less, it definitely kept my interest and enjoyment throughout and the wealth of informations made a quick read!
I must say that this is THE BEST BOOK I have read this year and well worth your time. I highly recommend it!
I would like to add one thing, I am sorry that Mr. Thompson decided to make the villain Monsieur Dupont, a French Canadian, from my hometown of Montreal! LOL!!
